Interview with Karem Jarada

  1. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  2. A: I bring clarity, space, depth and width to a song.

  3. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  4. A: Hip Hop, but I am versatile in any genre where vocals are needed.

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

  6. A: Mainly vocal recording, in addition to vocal production/mixing.

  7. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  8. A: I have a Quad Core Apollo Twin that I use for mixing and recording. I also use a Neumann u87 which I run through a Neve 1073 pre-amp and CL1B compressor to track vocals.

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

  10. A: Don't over compress!

  11. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  12. A: Drake's engineer, 40, because his ears are diamonds.

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

  16. A: Expect a quality mix from me.

  18. A: Understanding when a vocal is properly sitting in a mix, such that it cuts through the low-end.

  19. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  20. A: Digital, but analog sometimes too. Analog just has a certain feel that digital simply can't replicate at times.

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

  22. A: 5-6 projects with a variety of up and coming talent.

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

  24. A: I am self-taught, started as an intern at a few studios to learn the ropes and gradually worked my way up to being an independent Audio Engineer.
