Interview with Cameron McMichael
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: One of my career highlights was recording an amazing live session for the Los Angeles string theory which went on to get a 2019 Grammy nomination.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Invisible, emotional, hyper-real, accurate.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I like to work with anyone who cares a lot about what they are creating. Preferably an artist who doesn't mind having detailed conversations about the aesthetic and intent of the production before I ever begin to mix.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: A great performance is more important that anything. If you felt the magic in the studio it's the mixers job to just get the technical aspects out of the way and let the emotion shine.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I like to work on whatever music has emotion in it. Music that takes a risk. Genre is irrelevant.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Switching back and forth between listening like a technician and a fan.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Pro Tools 12 HD, Logic Pro X, Ableton live 10, UAD Plugins. I work on an Apollo system with Neuman speakers and DT880's. I have mobile access to top studios for referencing.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Some of my favorite engineers are Roy Halee (Paul Simon, Graceland) Mike Shipley, (Allison Krauss- Paper Airplane) Bruce Swedien (Thriller- Michael Jackson) and Del Palmer (All his work with Kate Bush). Oh yea- and whatever amazing magic is happening on most Devo tracks.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I mix music, or am hired for studio recording sessions. I love film audio and do post production work- editing and mixing.
