Interview with Dominique Moody

  1. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  2. A: Various songs and projects for my clients at Suburban Pro Studios.

  3. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  4. A: I'll say that good, quality analog outboard gear is definitely important during the recording process. But during the mixing process, not so much. It's all about taste.

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

  6. A: I promise to do my best to give you the best quality work that I can.

  7. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  8. A: Making dope records. It's fun.

  9. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  10. A: That anybody with a laptop and a cracked version of ProTools can do it lol.

  11. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  12. A: I always ask my clients what their vision is for their record(s), sonically. I feel it's important for an artist and their engineer to be on the same page creatively.

  13. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  14. A: I started off as a producer making beats, around 2008. In 2010 I started taking production seriously and started selling my beats on Soundclick. In order to sell more beats, I realized that I needed to learn how to mix my beats so that they would sound cleaner and more professional. That's how I got into engineering. Eventually I realized I liked engineering more than making beats, so in 2012 I started to focus more on being an engineer. Through an internship at my local community college I landed a gig at Suburban Pro Studios in St. Louis, MO in 2013. And I've been here ever since.

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

  16. A: I'd say 85% of my clients are rappers.

  17. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  18. A: My ability to listen.

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

  20. A: I do my best to bring my clients ideas that sonically take songs to the next level. Mixing is a creative function as well as a technical one. Mixing is an ART.

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

  22. A: When I've been given a mix to do, the first thing that I do is make edits or do any "clean up" work to organize the files in the ProTools session. I do this is to make the mixing process faster and more efficient. Secondly if time allows, I like to do a rough balancing of the levels before I start the actual mix. This is in order for me to draw a mental "road map" of where I want to take the mix. And then after that, I start on the mix itself.

  23. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  24. A: At the studio I work at, we have two ProTools 12 HD rooms with various mics and pieces of outboard gear. LOTS of plugins!

  25. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  26. A: As a full-time audio engineer, my day to day work mainly consists of recording and mixing records.
