Interview with Robert Rodriguez Del Toro
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I always make it a goal to make my most recent project my best, so this amazing artist Kingblue's most recent single "Try To" is what I'm most proud of. The rest of his EP, when it's all finished will be what I'm most proud of when I finish that.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started capturing sound when I was around 13. I wrote songs and played guitar so I got my cheap USB mic and an amp that had a software component to sing my songs into the mic and record everything else through that amp as an interface. Years later and with a real interface I would produce my band's first album and from there my love for making music became a love for capturing it. In 2016, engineer and close firend, Edwin Gonzalez was just starting out as an intern at a couple studios in North Hollywood and when he had downtime to offer we would pull several all-nighters producing and geeking out about the SSL and Trident we got to use. That is when I began to get a hold of real gear and learn real techniques from studio professionals. When he began to get his own sessions with artists he was producing I would come in as his runner. In 2020 I graduated from Cal State Dominguez Hills with a degree in Digital Media Arts - Audio Recording. A year prior, I began interning at High-Frequency Tracks, a boutique music licensing studio run by award-winning composer Eddie Grey. I became his assistant helping on various sessions, zoom conference calls for the teaching he does as well, and most recently I got to wire his new home studio from the ground up. While at High-Frequency I have gotten to compose for TV and Film, music supervise, mix and master and even got to proofread the Pro Tools Graphically Enhanced Manual by Edgar Rothermich. I also teach beginner Pro Tools courses on skillshare and continue to freelance produce for several indie groups here in the Valley.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Indie rock and songs of all genres when it comes to tracks for music licensing.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: My process, whether it's mixing, mastering, tracking or tuning, is approached with the same mindset: serve the song and serve the artist.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Less is more and your ears ALWAYS come first. The best and biggest sounding songs happen because they were written and arranged that way. Dive into a track creatively and follow what sounds right.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I run an up to date MacBook Pro with Logic and ProTools DAWs. I have the complete Soundtoys bundle, complete Slate VMR, Iztope RX and Ozone Elements, and several Waves plugins along with various other plugs from great small companies. Hardware-wise I have a simple but effective set of mics: several SM57s and 58s, a pair of modded MXL 603s, a Lauten LA220, and a couple of DIs and Reamp Boxes.
