Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
Robbie Morgan is a great producer and engineer. Really killer dude all around. Check out his profile here: https://soundbetter.com/profiles/13041-rob-morgan
Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
I produced an unofficial remix of "Bow Chicka Wow Wow" by Mike Posner that has been played over 100,000 times on Soundcloud alone with another producer by the name of Hi Five.
What are you working on at the moment?
I'm working on a ton of original music.
Analog or digital and why?
Depends where we're talking about in the signal chain.
What's your 'promise' to your clients?
I will give your song the same attention I give my own.
What do you like most about your job?
I love giving people back their tracks and hearing their first reaction. Its amazing to see how someone reacts when they can hear their original idea in its full and finished glory.
What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
"How did you get it to sound so clean and tight?"
What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
The biggest misconception is that you need hardware to do a good job mastering. You absolutely don't for a vast majority of tracks.
What questions do you ask prospective clients?
What track do you want yours to sound like? Is there any specific areas you are worried about?
What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
You'll be surprised how much of a difference a proper mix and master can make.
If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A corded mouse, my laptop, my headphones, a comfortable chair, and some solar panels for power.
What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
I started making music for fun, then realized I could make money doing what I loved while also helping those that needed it.
How would you describe your style?
My personal production style is breakbeat with dubstep, hybrid trap, and techno influences.
Which artist would you like to work with and why?
I would love to work with Drezo. His sound is uniquely dark while still keeping up with modern loudness standards and not sounding dull or overly echo-y.
Can you share one music production tip?
Choose the right sound from the beginning and your life will be far easier.
What type of music do you usually work on?
Electronic Dance Music (or EDM)
What's your strongest skill?
Sound design. By using the right sounds from the beginning, I make my life easier right off the bat.
What do you bring to a song?
I bring years of expertise of EDM production, mixing, and mastering to those that may not want to focus their time and energy into that part of the process. I do the legwork so that producers can get back to creating.
What's your typical work process?
I wouldn't say that I have a typical work process. It depends on the client's needs, the genre, and the song itself. I adapt to what the project requires instead of forcing the project to fit inside my own box, letting the originality and personality of the composer shine through.
Tell us about your studio setup.
I have access to two studio spaces. My primary studio has Yamaha HS5 monitors with an Adam Audio Sub7. I also have access to a more common setup with KRK Rokit 8's. This variety gives me multiple perspectives to make sure your track sounds great on any setup.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
I draw inspiration from across the spectrum of electronic music. My personal top influences would be Jauz, Wuki, Skrillex, and Gesaffelstein.
