Interview with Jonathan Saint-Dic
If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
Laptop, Headphones, audio interface, Synth, Generator.
What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
I started Freelancing one year ago but I've been producing my own projects for 4 years from now.
What's your typical work process?
For Editing i mostly use protools, at first i find the bpm if not given because it's going to make me work faster. Mixing : Fist I Groupe the tracks by Frequency. Secondly i set up my Fx with auxiliary channels : long verb, short verb, delay, etc. Then I start mixing by rising the fader one by one from the lowest to the highest Frequency. Mastering : My mastering Suit is "Ozone 7". Depending on how the mix sounds I start looking for resonant frequencies with a Stereo or mid-side EQ. I don't do big changes when I'm doing a master, they are subtle and the final product will sound the way the client want it to.
Tell us about your studio setup.
it's a small home studio, I use a paire of Yamaha HS8 as monitor, and a Apollo Twin as audio interface. Everything else is in my mac book pro : Protools for recording and editing and Ableton Live for Producing
