Interview with Mixed By XB

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: A project that i am extremely proud to be able to have worked on is a project called "wasted time" by Milo, the song really pushed my comfort zone but i am extremely glad it did. This project should be coming out late 2022.

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

  4. A: Currently I am working on mixing and mastering 3 Albums that should be being released sometime in mid to late 2022.

  5. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  6. A: Luis canción

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: Both for different reasons and situations.

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

  10. A: Quality - Time & Effort - Satisfaction Guaranteed!

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

  12. A: I love that I can make something sound and feel so much better after I've put my special touch on it!

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

  14. A: On the mastering side people tend to think a bad mix can be fixed in mastering... It can't. On the mixing side, there tend to be people who think that mixing will change the song. In an ideal world, mixing is enhancing/bringing out the heart of the song, but not heavily changing production or basic presentation.

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

  16. A: Mostly what aesthetic they're going for, who their influences are, what's their audience. The same song could be released with a Pop, Country, Indie, or "Coffeehouse", vibe. I can get clues from the production but ultimately it matters most what the song means to you, and who you're looking to reach with it.

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

  18. A: Work with someone who's not gonna only just mix your music to sound good, but make sure they will also take the extra time to be creative. They must have the vision. They must have a good ear. They must exceed your expectations!

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

  20. A: My laptop, interface, external hard drive, headphones, and microphone.

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

  22. A: My career is Music. I've been doing music for over 10+ years now.

  23. Q: How would you describe your style?

  24. A: Simplicity is key!!!! I keep the mixes simple but yet really creative and clear

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

  26. A: Kriiispy , I would like to work with him because I love his style and creative process.

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

  28. A: Don't ever be afraid to be different and creative. Sometimes it may work and sometimes it may not. But always try new things. Music is all about ideas!

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

  30. A: I usually work on R&B, Hip Hop, Pop, EDM but in my career I've worked on a lot of other genres.

  31. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  32. A: My strongest skill is mixing and production. These are 2 very important elements in my music.

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

  34. A: Creativity, Clarity, and Power

  35. Q: What's your typical work process?

  36. A: Mixing: After I receive files I import everything into Pro Tools, and get a pretty decent rough mix happening. Then I confirm with the client that we're either good to go, or there's something missing or that needs to be fixed. I then put the mix on my schedule and either send it the day I mix it, or sometimes give it a night to finish with fresh ears. I then shoot this first pass to clients, and then if they have notes I recall and address as needed. Turn around depends on my calendar, and the scope of project but is usually around 2 weeks start to finish. Mastering: I generally listen to the song outside of the DAW, making sure it sounds like a decent mix, and that there's no technical issues. Once I've confirmed everything is good to go, I schedule it in and hit it usually within a few days.

  37. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  38. A: I work off iMac. I mix in ProTools. I use high quality professional UAD and Waves plugins!

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

  40. A: Benny Blanco, Gawvi, Joe Bellion, Pharrell, Daft Punk

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

  42. A: Mixing, Mastering, Vocal tracking , Demos
