Interview with Le Charles Blue
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I worked on Persevere by Oceans Were Ink and i was the Mix Engineer for it.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Working on a track by Oceans Were Ink and some Indie Rock projects.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Adam Bentley
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Currently i have a digital system but i use different saturators to bring in that analog feel. So if I had the resources i would love to have a meld of both worlds because there are certain things like the reaction of an analog device on an audio file that hasnt been emulated by digital plugins yet. A couple of compressors and EQ's and a good AD DA convertors should be perfecto.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: My promise is that I'll be able to deliver as per the demo of what you have recorded currently.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love to go through all the intricacies that somes with each and every track just to make them sound the best as they can.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Can you make the Kick punchier? Ans. Yes I feel the guitars aren't wide enough. Ans. oki I'll just tweak the tones a bit more to feel the width.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Everybody thinks I just compile all the tracks together and give them a render. They even think i use presets to get what i need for the music.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What mood or vibe are you trying to bring into the song? How sterile do you want the mix to be? Why do you think that something didn't feel right? Which part of the song can be made better? Where do you think the track doesn't translate?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Look for something that the track needs and not what the track wants. Sometimes the mix that you have in mind might not be the processing that would suit the track so its best you let the engineer make that call. Listen to what he provides and then tweak or share your thoughts and go ahead with things accordingly.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: If electricity exists on that island i would definitely take my PC, Audio Interface, Monitors, Bass and a MIDI controller.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been doing this professionally for the past 3 years. I've been honing these skills for the past 5 years. Started off by mixing my own bands tracks and then slowly once I racked up the experience I started working on other people's projects.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I have a style that takes shape accordingly to each track i work on. It totally varies according to that because i might approach things differently than stick to a preset approach.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would love to work with artist s from every genre so i can learn new ways to approach my mixes.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Parallel processing is something thats underrated.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I normally work on Progressive rock music but I do work on projects ranging from ads to regional music to electronic to anything as long as its music.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill is definitely mixing. I'm still honing my mastering skills and techniques.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I do some processing that overall polishes the song and make some interesting effects that further adds to the vibe of the song.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: When i mix i prep the whole mix by analysing tones, cleaning up tracks etc. The mix process happens over two or three days where things are sculpted sonically in their space. Then i spend a day or two maximum for the mastering process and do the final tweaks before i deliver the track.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a basic setup with an Audient interface and Yamaha MSP5 monitors. I work on Presonus Studio One 5 and i have a Fender Jazz Bass to help me with recording live bass and some Kontakt libraries to help out with programming drums and bass.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: They inspire me to always create something new and not just be another duplicate. Justify the song, make it even more unique.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I mainly do Mixing and Mastering, I even Program drums, Track or Program bass or even help in the composition of the song.
