Interview with Wade Alin

  1. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  2. A: The goal is always for listeners to feel what the artist felt at their highest point of inspiration. I often start by refining individual tracks on a technical level - tightening a beat, replacing a sound or two. Adding or enhancing an existing sound. I’m first and foremost a programmer and have a deep understanding of how sounds work in unison. I am also very well versed in orchestration and will often add symphonic elements to the tracks I produce.

  3. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  4. A: Both. They are both immensely poweful tools for making music sound great! In conjunction, even more so.

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