Interview with Zach Lachance
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both have they're pros and cons, as far as ease of use and lower cost of entry, digital is a lot more accessible to most.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: From start to finish I always promise my clients that they have my all. I give my everything to making sure it's right.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: I can't magically change your tracks. So often people thing a mix engineer can transform a song from meh to WOW. More realistically what I do is take your tracks and present it in its best light, rather than "change" the sound.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I like to get a feel for the background/context of a particular song/album/production. Which can be a band bio or a short blurb about the "why" of a song. Usually I will ask for links to previous work/youtube channel/etc to do my own digging to try and enter the headspace of the band or artist
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Communicate, communicate, communicate. Be up front about expectations, and be receptive to feedback. Generally the sellers on this site have some experience, let them use it to make your project better!
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I got a drum set when I was 11, a couple years later I was playing in bands, couple years later I was gigging regularly, couple years later I was recording albums and touring, then got married and had kids, now running my own studio out of my home in the country.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Parallel Processing and creative use of routing will completely change the way you handle music production, both at the tracking and mixing stages.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: When I receive a song to mix, I import to the DAW and loop it while setting up the session getting a feel for the song parts and overall feel. Then I will listen to the artist rough mix (if one is provided) then dig in starting with drums/perc up through bass, keys, guitars, vox as the song dictates.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I mostly use Reaper as my DAW. with a suite of Waves, Plugin Alliance, Slate, Softube, etc plug-ins and some of own crafted techniques to make songs pop.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Andrew Scheps is a big influence to me
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I do a lot of tracking in the in-person realm, but online/remotely most I do is mix work and some minor arranging.
