Ryan's turnaround time is really quick. What's more he was super cool to work. Not to mention I loved the tracks after our mastering job was complete. If you guys have mastering work in the Rock/Pop/Alternative space I'd recommend Ryan as your "go-to" guy!
Ryan is a great mastering engineer. Easy to work with and very fast. His tracks are very natural sounding but still loud. I would highly recommend working with him.
Interview with Ryan Alexander Morris
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Analog and Digital are both important and should be regarded with equal respect. There are certain applications where analog gear should be used, and certain applications where only digital should be used - it is completely dependent on the song, style, and the desired outcome.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love getting to hear unique and original music from different musicians, and getting to make it even better than the original track. It's incredibly rewarding.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: The biggest misconception is that louder is better. One of the most important elements of a good master is dynamics, so the loudness of a track should never be the main priority.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I work a lot of different genres, from punk to r&b, rap and EDM. I honestly don't know which genre I enjoy working on the most.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I try to capture the emotion of a track, while maintaining transients and clarity. I know I've finished mastering a track when I start dancing to it involuntarily.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My studio setup its pretty minimalistic. It consists of my Mac with various plugins, monitors, and speakers. I try not to get new equipment until I know how to effectively work with the equipment I currently have.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I've had the opportunity to observe sessions with John Mayfield at Mayfield Mastering, and to learn from him. He's such a fantastic engineer that it would hard not to be inspired by his work.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I typically master music, as it has always been the most rewarding process for me.
