Interview with AdrianKViolin

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

  2. A: Rick Melick is an ace keys player. He's played in my Venue a fair bit, & played with Joe Bonamassa all over the World.

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

  4. A: An above-quality standard of performance

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

  6. A: the sounds. Creating Something from Nothing.

  7. Q: How would you describe your style?

  8. A: I am trying to make your track sound like You, so the answer to this question is "your style"

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

  10. A: Understanding how to EQ large numbers of strings, & how to pan them is a fundamental. I am aware lots of producers try to "problem solve" using compression. Only introduce compression as the final ingredient.

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

  12. A: let's say a commission to do 15 strings on a track, 'carte blanche' I will typically have the track on rotation randomly the day before I get into it I may record a couple of bars as a memory aid if I think of something solid. If all goes well at the time I start recording I treat the track as if I'm improvising along with it, then use this as a guide & rebuild the harmonies etc from the bottom up. I actually found this is about twice as quick as me writing an arrangement, then performing it!

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

  14. A: typically multitrack string backings as arranger.
