Interview with Mountain Kauri Studio
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Tristan Barton if you need some music for your visuals.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Analog because it makes us feel good and digital because it's easy to edit and cheap to buy.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Working on new music every week.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That you just have to be good at music or sound. There's a lot of patience and people skills that a lot of would be producers don't have.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Think about what you want to sound like. Or at least what you don't want to sound like, then at least we'd have a starting point.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started playing in bands but soon decided that producing was what I wanted to do. I recorded my first band for money in 2006 and I've been doing music full time since 2010 and producing full time since 2012.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: A lot of acoustic/authentic music but I like electric guitars and also adding in some electronic flourishes.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Dealing with drummers!
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I like to help get great sounds, doubling parts with different instruments or cutting instruments to help it breath. Happy to help with chords and lyrics but I also understand that stuff can be precious. I can offer advice on arrangement to help it flow or to make it a 7 minute opus.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: It's simple. A control room and a live room. I record in Logic with a bit of out board gear. The live room sounds great, it's purpose built, wooden floors so acoustic instruments shine. Room pics make the drums sound great.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Recording in the studio. Bands or solo artists
