Interview with Ton-E
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm releasing an instrumental EP based on different genres and vibes of music. Also, always working on building my catalog of sound and music to present to other artists.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I will bring my positive energy to our collaboration. My mission is making sure the music vision you have is made a into an exceptional final song.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I enjoy doing something that I'm passionate about. I've loved music all my life so it's a joy to do something that makes me feel very happy and fulfilled. Plus, have I said already that it's fun for me.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That music production is easy and not important to a song's final completion. That an artist is what makes a song great. All people involved in the completion of a song are important to making the final mix sound amazing.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Tell me more about yourself. What inspires your music? What ideas for music do you have in your head you want to create?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Just be yourself. I would rather work with someone that is authentic than someone who is wanting to sound like someone else. Also, just have fun! Music is fun for me so I enjoy when the person I'm working with also is having fun.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I don't know if I can define a style per se, as I like to challenge myself to adapt to each artist I work with. Eclectic might be my style.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would really like to work with Justin Timberlake or J Balvin. Both of them are very talented and I know they would bring the best out of the music we create together.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Less is more when it comes mixing a song. Adding too many effects on a sound or mix can make it sound worse than intended.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Hip-Hop, Reggaeton, Trap, Pop, and Singer/Songwriter to name a few. I'm always inspired by new sounds and genres of music.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Adapting to each unique artist and creating their musical idea.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I like to bring energy and a feel based on the song's vibe. It all comes down to the energy for me. The end goal is to create a professionally sounding song that is what the artist's vision was in their head.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Depends on the project or inspiration in the moment. I usually have musical foundations and ideas to present to an artist, and the music sort of organically grows from there. I also enjoy working with artists from scratch with no music done to start and just an idea.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Pro Tools with numerous professional plugins, Logic Pro, Macbook Pro, Focusrite, Audio Technica, Boss drum sampler, countless vinyl records
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I enjoy working with artists on the idea of a song and vision they have. I've created a complete musical composition for artists, and also had a complete song idea to present to a singer/songwriter. I also do mix and mastering work for other artists.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I am extremely grateful to have been a part of a music project that brought together 22 different artists for the benefit of musical healing. The motto of the project is "Change the Music, Change the Mindset, Change the World". The project is called Album22.com and I created an original composition on the album called "You Are Loved". I had the honor to collaborate with an amazing singer in Laura JeH and also had light language spoken by Denise Exler. It was a truly amazing experience to be a part of.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I like both. I think there's limitations in analog yet it sounds so good. Digital is really starting to catch up in regard to sound quality. Plus digital makes things so easy and efficient.

A: Macbook Pro, MIDI controller, iPad Pro, Condenser Mic, Audio Interface
