Interview with Michael 'Mic' Ferreira

  1. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  10. A: Hip-Hop, Pop and R&B.

  11. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  12. A: Get everything right at the source. Try to record vocals as best possible, since they'll be front and center. Also take time picking your sounds when producing.

  14. A: Open and warm. Like a hug.

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

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

  18. A: Don't be afraid to ask questions before hiring. If you're not sure how to export files, what I might need for the project, or any other question. Feel free.

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

  20. A: Do you have the song ready and the instrumental stems. Major key!

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

  22. A: I'm not a magician or which doctor. I do what i can with the source material.

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

  24. A: I get to listen to amazing music - albeit sometimes for hours on end - and then have artists and their fans positive feedback.

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

  26. A: The song is done when you are 100% satisfied.

  27. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  28. A: Fully digital while mixing - for now. Being able to recall, do changes on the fly and have it sent to the artist for approval is just efficient and time saving.
