Interview with Joey Tong
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Mixing to produce atmosphere or warmness.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: Multiple revisions as required.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Equalizer, limiter, expander, saturator and chorusing gears.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Over half a year
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Closer to listeners and not in a gigantic overcrowded stadium. Warmer sounds closer to the frequencies of speech.

A: Freemasons (UK)
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Recording, mixing and a tiny bit of mastering of 4 singles for two singer song-writer / producers.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: More digital. With clarity being a key focus, digital systems help with that. Analog processing may produce changes in harmonics, unless u like them too :D
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What are you limits on clarity? What kind of sound /style do u like and from what sources if any :) What kind of space / environment do u desire, or not. What is your theme or desired emotion or state of mind from the product? What are your priorities of the various tracks / elements? Which parts do you not want, touched? Which parts do you not mind being overlooked? Which parts do you want to be more creative with?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: A more dry and clear mix is what you can look forward to.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: A lot of noise or unwanted sound may be recorded, whether we hear it or not. But, reducing as much as possible, as early as possible, makes mixing and compiling a lot smoother and clear when it all comes together in mixing. No surprising noise!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: A bit of rock, alt rock, blues, country rock, funk, synth pop, electro pop.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Pushing lead elements out above other sounds at directed/appointed time.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Focus on clarity of leading elements as they come or more warmness to the sounds closer to frequencies of speech.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: (1)Clean up (2)Little to some gain staging(I prefer to use your preferred volume as i receive them) (3)Small realignments(if any that's obvious to me or as u direct) (4)Small EQ changes initially to highlight the various elements you'd like more of. (5)Small effects unless stated otherwise. (6)Start of overall mix from background elements to side and then, front.
