Interview with Marten Tromm
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

A: I'm working on couple of commercials and produce a new project.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I will try my best to meet your expectations
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Being creative and having fun in the process.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: My usual answer is "The more effort you put in, the better the end result will be". Works for most questions.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: I can "fix it" later.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What is you wanna do? How do you envision you sounding?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Does my style fit your sound and vision? If so, why not give a shot!
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: A computer with Pro Tools, a midi keyboard, a mic, headphones and an unlimited data plan.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started producing 2009 but have been in the business a long time prior to that as a freelance musician, songwriter and artist.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I like doing a lot with less.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Brian Wilson, because he's a master.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Don't be scared to start over.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I typically work on pop/electronic music.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I play multiple instruments and I'm well versed in programming so I'm able to build tracks around melodies and ideas.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I tend to start from a specific idea, usually recorded as voice memo. I then build a track around that idea and then try to find a good key for the artist it's intended for. Once a song is starting to form, I adjust the track around it and do a little pre-mixing. If time permits I like to let it sit for a few days and then come back and fix what needs fixing.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I work in Pro Tools. Audio runs through my Apollo Twin. I use variety of plugins and soft synths and samplers.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I usually co write with the artist. Sometimes they come in with an idea, other times we start with a pre-made track/hook idea I've made for that artist prior to the session. When it comes to scoring for tv/commercials, they usually have a specific feel or sound in mind and it's my job to interpret that and turn it into music.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Brian Wilson, Max Martin, Pharrell, Dr Dre.
