Interview with Marc McClusky

Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
I worked on a few Weezer records as a mixer. It was great for me cause I'm an actual fan of Weezer. It was a blast!
What are you working on at the moment?
Sia.
Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
Not sure Ill have to look.
Analog or digital and why?
It doesn't matter. Do you like a green wall or a green wall? If the wall is cracked and needs work it doesn't effect the green paint. Fix the wall and the paint will look the same.
What's your 'promise' to your clients?
You are going to be stoked when we are done and most likely learn quite a bit.
What do you like most about your job?
I get to inspire people its amazing!
What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
I don't get a lot of questions anymore. I guess I'm at the point where people seek me out for being me.
What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
That it's an easy job. You have to be creative everyday, while that is amazing somedays you got to really take a deep breath and find your muse.
What questions do you ask prospective clients?
What are you trying achieve?
What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
Be clear about what you are looking for but also be open minded enough to try something new.
If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
Well these days you can grab an Universal Audio Apollo and a mic and be good to go. Ill give a list of hardware and assume a recorder like a pro tools rig is already been dropped off on the island. My top five hardware gear list would be: a massive passive because its an amazing all around great EQ, an Empirical Labs Distressor like the Massive Passive it can handle anything you throw at it, a 1073 pre amp, a Lexicon 480L and lastly to capture everything a Manley Ref C. That mic make me look like a genius.
What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
I've been recording since I was 13 or 14 years old. I've been mixing and producing professionally for over 15 years. I am grateful everyday I wake up and get to do this.
How would you describe your style?
Forward thinking. I don't like to catch a wave , I like to create it!
Which artist would you like to work with and why?
Green Day. They have been one of my favorite bands since I was a teenager. I'd imagine you don't have to suggest a lot of ideas to them, I'd imagine its more of capturing their lightning in a bottle.
Can you share one music production tip?
The usage of compression is a lot like another saying...It's not how much your are using, it's how you are using it.
What type of music do you usually work on?
I work on all types of music but I probably work mostly on Pop Rock and Hip Hop.
What's your strongest skill?
My ears and ability to listen to my instincts.
What do you bring to a song?
I bring a different perspective and a push to do something out of your comfort zone. New and interesting always beats safe and trite.
What's your typical work process?
I like to have a gut reaction to a song I don't like to think about to much because thinking is counter intuitive to music which should be an emotional reaction. I just let it be that...emotional!
Tell us about your studio setup.
These days I'm more in the box. I have a pair of ProAc 100 speakers with a Bryston 4B amp. A Universal Audio Apollo 8 and Apollo 8p for tracking and plug ins and a slew of mics. I don't feel the need for tons of outboard gear anymore.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
I'm a big fan a people like Brian Eno, Chris Lord Alge, Bob Clearmountain,
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
I mostly mix and produce for all types of artists.
