Interview with Mikromix Studio DMV
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: My work on HBO's The Wire (season 4 and 5) was pretty fun and fulfilling. I wasn't sure the songs would make it but 8 tracks actually made it to the screen.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Mixing a project for NFT creation.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Yes, cuz why not. I know both worlds and take advantage of that in my mixing.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: Satisfaction guaranteed
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love mixing and creating music so just being in the lab is like the beach to me.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Are you available today? Depends.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What artists do you listen to and who's mixes do you like the most.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: A good pro will save you lots of time and allow you to be more focused on the artistry.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: SSL Six, Akai MPC, MacPro, a Mic, and my Adam Monitors (I'll just count both as a set lol)
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Audio engineer since 1990. Started on reels then moved to ADATs/DATs around the mid 90's. Fully digital in 1999 and began incorporating analog again around 2004ish.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Analytical and Musical
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Don't make any changes unless you know exactly why and never use templates or presets for a custom fit product.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Mostly Rap and R&B but also Pop, Reggae, some Jazz and more.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Mixing and Editing Audio
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I let the song become what it needs to be received in a sonically clear and emotional way.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Video of mix breakdown on my site. I usually listen to what I received to digest what is needed and then I do what the song needs. Sometimes its a lot; other times it's pretty close and just needs some refinement.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Hybrid Analog and Digital - Protools, Logic, and other DAWS + the best plugins + SSL SiX, Dangerous Music D-Box, 500 rack for vocals and some other analog processing gear. I have been refining my rig for the last 15 years and its dialed in quite nicely these days. You won't be disappointed.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Young Guru, Mike Dean, Alex Tumay
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: My most frequent action is mixing a rnb or rap song with around 10 stems give or take. I do vocal tuning on more than half by my estimation. I include 2 revisions and mastering with all the mixes.
