Interview with Angelo Rodriguez

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

  2. A: There is one song I'm working on currently that has a lot of dynamics in it that I'm really proud of working on. My role is the mixing and mastering engineer for the record, and the reason I'm proud of it is because I was able to let everything breathe and flow so well with each other in the mix, letting each track have it's own space without it interfering with other tracks in the song, and the sonic clarity is superb.

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

  4. A: I'm working on various records for Debris of Titan.

  5. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  6. A: No preference. Whichever gives you the best and fastest results you're looking for.

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

  8. A: My promise is that I will make your vision for your record come to life in the mix, while being competitive with the rest of the market in the master's.

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

  10. A: My job doesn't feel like a job for me, it's almost 2nd nature for me to always make music sound better.

  11. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  12. A: One of the main questions I get is how long will it take me to work on their record. My response is simple, as long as there is clear communication during my process, there should be a fairly quick turnaround.

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

  14. A: People think production work is part of the mixing and mastering process, which it is not.

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

  16. A: Which direction are you leading to with your record? Is there a certain sound/style that you like the most?

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

  18. A: A lot of times you need another set of ears to work on your records. Let me be those 2nd set of ears that you can trust to make accurate adjustments.

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

  20. A: UAD Apollo Twin X, beyerdynamic M 88 TG, Audeze LCD-5, Moog One 16-voice Analog Synthesizer, MacBook Pro laptop.

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

  22. A: I went to Mercy College back in 2013 for a Bachelor's degree in Music Industry & Technology. I knew going into college that there is nothing else I would want to do career wise than work in the recording studio scene.

  23. Q: How would you describe your style?

  24. A: I like to shine light on records that I work on without altering the sound too much. Everyone that I've worked with have their own unique production style sound, so I like to make that present in the mix and master.

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

  26. A: I would love to work with Deadmau5 one day. He has been such a big inspiration to me growing up and has played a big roll in my music making process and engineering.

  30. A: Mostly indie rock and house music.

  31. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  32. A: Communication with the client, trying to see what direction they are heading towards with the record, then applying my skills to achieve their vision.

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

  34. A: What I bring to the table is sonic clarity and balance, leaving you with a fresh perspective and peace of mind, knowing your record will sound excellent anywhere it is played.

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

  36. A: Typical work process usually starts with importing all audio stems for a song, editing all the stems, & mixing the stems to give them sonic clarity and balance. Once the client approves of the mix, then mastering is the next and final step.
