Interview with Aaron Ahmad

  1. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  2. A: Dom Morley. 100%.

  3. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  4. A: I don't think it matters much. It's more about flow and inspiration. Analog can be expensive, cumbersome, and fragile. Digital can be overwhelming, complex, and excessive.

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

  6. A: That it's not creative.

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

  8. A: I like to hear about their inspiration and references for their work. It helps me hear the music from their seat and helps me understand what they're looking for.

  9. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  10. A: Mac. Auratones. Quad amp. Push2. Backup drive.

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

  12. A: I've been doing this for almost 10 years now. I've was always learning, playing, and recording music when I was growing up, and just kept doing it.

  13. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  14. A: Find a set of headphone or speakers you can learn, and trust your ears.

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

  16. A: It's hard to say. I make sure to keep working on good music, rather than any one type. Good music is good music.

  17. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  18. A: Hearing the space in the music and manipulating the instruments to help build a better mix and picture.

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

  20. A: I help bring space and movement to songs, giving them a life outside the speakers so the listen can feel like they're in a space with the artists, whether thats transporting them to the club, arena, an intimate one-to-one performance, or out into space!

  21. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  22. A: I try to keep a balance of working in and out of the computer. I run everything on Macs and use Apogee, UA, and Avid interfaces. These allow me to record in and hardware insert gear around the studio. I then run everything to Quad amps to power the auratones, NS10s, and KRKs.

  23. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  24. A: I really like the work of Ariel Rechtshaid. His writing and productions are always so interesting.

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

  26. A: I'm often doing such a wide range of work with different clients, from recording artists, to editing and organising existing sessions, to mixing and mastering singles and records.
