Interview with Lucas Dellaporta
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital; it makes my life much easier when engineering in the studio and especially mixing live shows, but I do also enjoy the use of analog gear when tracking artists/talent
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What type of sound are you looking to achieve? What are your goals for your project/song? How do you envision the final product?
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Typically metal, but I'm just as well rounded in other types of music as well, including rock, funk, jazz, R&B, classic rock, and even country.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Before recording, make sure that you have a solid plan of attack. A great example of this would be to map out any tempo/time signature changes. Make practice tracks with a click in order to get acclimated so that way you can nail your takes once it comes time to making the recording.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: The most common work that I've started doing have been mostly live sets, and I've recently been doing studio sessions, both in person and remotely.

A: Rhythm, Tightness, and Creativity
