Interview with Apricot Music

  1. Q: How would you describe your style?

  2. A: Chill.

  3. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  4. A: I've never really thought about it.

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

  6. A: Inspire to play music as if there's no mixing, then mix as if there's no mastering.

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

  8. A: Rock n Roll, Metal, Punk Rock

  9. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  10. A: Proper microphone placement and use, capturing raw performances accurately then fixing minor performance imperfections with small edits that a listener would never be able to tell.

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

  12. A: In addition to basic mixing techniques to enhance clarity and tonality, I also really like to create more excitement in songs by altering its overall dynamics.

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

  14. A: I like to get an idea of what my client has in mind as their end goal. Then we track, overdub, then edit if and when needed. I like to think of mixing as enhancement only. I prefer to have mastering done at a mastering house mainly to get one last set of professional ears on a project before it goes public.

  15. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  16. A: At the heart of my studio I am running Presonus Studio One as my DAW on a quad core iMac. I am linking that with a Presonus interface and an Alesis HD24. My mix board is a Mackie which has nice clean preamps with a lot of headroom. It is a board that would normally be used for live sound but I have it routed mainly for monitoring and in a way that provides zero latency. I use JBL monitors, and a growing collection of outboard processors and microphones.

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

  18. A: I have a mentor who is seasoned in old-school style live sound reinforcement, and a good friend friend at a top mastering house. It's amazing how much we can learn and teach all at once.

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

  20. A: Typical clients of mine are full bands with real acoustic drums, guitars, bass and vocals. They bring their musical creations to my studio where I multitrack record, edit, and mix down to produce a full album.
