Interview with Scarlet Letters Productions

  1. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  2. A: A short 5 track EP by an upcoming metal band, False Albatross.

  3. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  4. A: Why not both? I use Mixbus32C as my DAW of choice because it's the best of both worlds. I get the ease of use and flexibility of digital and the workflow and sound of analog.

  5. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  6. A: 100% satisfaction with the mix/master I do. If you aren't happy, I keep the mix and you get your money back.

  7. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  8. A: Getting to work on awesome music and be a part of the creative process.

  9. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  10. A: Mixing can't make a crappy song good, and Mastering can't make a crappy mix good.

  11. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  13. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  14. A: Know what you want ahead of time and be prepared.

  15. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  16. A: Computer, Monitors, an interface with enough outs to do 40 tracks, a fridge, and a Harrison 4832C console.

  17. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  18. A: I started mixing doing live sound for TV sports broadcasting for the University of Oklahoma Sooners 2 years ago and started doing studio mixing about a year ago.
