Interview with Robert Back

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: The Misadventures in Love EP by Lexene was the first time I got to produce an artist from beginning to end. I recorded the beds and vocal tracks in a few different rooms to get the space I was looking for. I got to practice layering acoustic stringed instruments and vocals in the mix to create lush and haunting textures. check out the EP here:

  3. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  4. A: You will leave satisfied with your mix, and feel confident to share your music with the world.

  5. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  6. A: I shape the mix for an emotional impact thats right for each song. I use some of Brauer's bus compression techniques to maintain separation and dynamic range. I love saturation and find it's a great alternative to compression especially when a track needs to feel special.

  7. Q: What's your typical work process?

  8. A: Make sense of everything. Lots of soloing and labelling. Once everything in is it's right place, I can get the rough vibe of each track by establishing a balance. From there it all depends.... and thats where the fun begins!

  9. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  10. A: Treated home studio space with some outboard gear, Hybrid workflow. 2 Monitor Setup.

  11. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  12. A: Put your hands together!

  13. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  14. A: The right type and amount of saturation can add glue and flavor to just about anything. Sometimes I will have an aux track with a Tape Simulator on it that I will send my main instruments to. This provides everything a fat consolidated feel, and can tame some harsh transients on drums and plucked sounds.

  15. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  16. A: Rock, Jazz, Hip Hop, Electro-Acoustic, and Pop influence Electronic music

  17. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  18. A: Vocal Tuning! It's a lot of fun.

  19. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  20. A: Michael Brauer's Bus Compression, Max Martin's formulaic composition. also the experimentation of Led Zeppelin!

Lil Bit O' Ever by Old Jack Tap
