Interview with Robtix Communications
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a small , mainly post production studio and a mobile setup to track on location.
Q: What's your typical work process?
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Transparency, dynamics, a "live"feel.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Working with the artists as if it's my own project.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: A very personal approach and being transparent in communicating and of course keeping the transparency in the product as well.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started as amusician in the 70's and started working in a demo studio in the 80's. From there on my work expanded to where I am now.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: At first what their plans are and what they expect from me, like only the tracking, or do they want me in the mixing and mastering process aswell. After that we go into details like the location to record, what instruments etc. Then I will explain how I work, by this I mean from the first preparations to the final product.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Hhhhmmm, don't really know what you mean by that.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Hahaha, most commonly is the fee I charge, wich is a difficult one as one never knows exactly how long the production will take. After all you want a satisfactory product, not one that has been rushed of because of a lack of time and/or budget
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Meeting al different musicians and helping them to create. From my side it will be facilitating and delivering the tools to expand their creativity to an extend where even they might not have been yet.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: That I will deliver as we have agreed on and if possible, even more
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital, nowadays the digital domain has advanced so much, and I mean soundquality wise that it's more convenient to track on a laptop with pristine interfaces on location than having a truck with a mixing desk and a tape machine outside a venue with long cabels etc. etc. Also the workflow when I mix or master is much more convenient.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: If there is electricity, defenitly my Antelope interface, my Tannoy monitors, my laptop with all my software, my old DX7, my outboard reverbs the Roland SRV 2000 and my Yamaha REV7 and most of all my Pearl BLX drumkit ;-)
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: No unfortunately not I don't know people on Soundbetter.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Recording, mixing, mastering and producing
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: It varies from pop to baroque to jazz to world music
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: First of all try to meet in person to find out if you can create a great product together. If it's not possible, try to be as clear as you can about what you're plans are and what to be expected.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I try to be proud of every project, because of the way I like working with people, but if I have to choose, it will be Tango Cosmopolita with Omar Mollo & OTRA. We have been nominated for a Latin Grammy. Then it will be Stef van Viegen's CD "Äutumn girl". On this project I recorded, played, co-produced, mixed and mastered, also the CD layout was my doing, so being involved in the project from beginning till the end was a fun trip all the way!
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: On a modern classical album with a septet called Septime. We finalized the tracking and are now editting, mixing and mastering.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Listen to what the musician wants, they know their instrument, voice the best.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Billy Cobham, because I'm a fan and I like the sonic colors of a big drumkit
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Billy Cobham, Andrew Scheps, Andy Wallace, Bob Clearmountain, Sylvia Massey
