Interview with SBStudios
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Mixing is what i mainly do, But mastering comes through the way as well
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Chris lord, Dave Pensado, Fabrice Dupont, Phill Tan,
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My setup is not that fancy, Couple external compressor, eq, reverb, delays, Software i use Pro tools 10HD as of now, Monitors Yamaha's NS10, I have the option to completely mix in the box, or on my SSL Mixing board
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: My work process depends on what i get, What i do first is i organize all the tracks naming them something i can easily remember or that i can pin point really fast, I then do my gain staging if it wasn't done during the recording process or on preparation, And then i start mixing.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: My main goal to a song is to get it as clean as it can be and as soft as it can be without hurting your ears, Also i like making the song sound like your really in the song enjoying every moment of it.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Mixing i would say it is.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Rock, Hip hop, Rap, R&B, Acoustic, Everything that is musical, i can make it happen.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Yes, If you know how to correctly use an eq, compression, and reverb, you will be a great engineer.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Rihanna, Arianna Grande, I would love to because what leads a song is the singer and if the singer is a great singer is much easier to mix their record.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I would describe my style as urban and acoustical, I love acoustic songs, and also love urban songs such as hip hop, rap, R&B, Rock.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: One of a project that i worked on recently was a song called Mouche, From banda magda, Great singer very acoustic, with lots of instruments such as acoustic guitars, bass, kick, claps, congas, as so on, I'm proud of not only because i know i like acoustic songs, but because i know i can successfully mixed them.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have been doing this for 4 years now.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: A mixing board, a patch bay, compressor an Equalizer, and a computer.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: My advice to you, Before you send any of your tracks you first have to ask yourself, Do i like this song as is raw?? Your answer should be yes if your willing to send it of to a mixing engineer, Because if you don't like your song raw mixing it won't make you like it, mixing it just will make it sound properly balanced but you still won't like it, probably a little better but like a song you like from start!!, Now my second advice is never send a mix engineer a distorted track unless is the intention to, Why? Because if you do, theres nothing we can do to fix it, And you will just be wasting the engineers time and effort so that the client says no i don't like it, Never send your instruments with effects unless thats the effect you want your interments to have on the mix, is not so convenient to send them with effects because is going to be hard for the mixer to blend them and balance them properly, Third advice, Make sure none of your tracks clip. And if you have all those you'll be good to go.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Mixing and listen what i did to the mix and in what ways it improved them,
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: Happiness, Joy, And satisfaction, If they comply with the above requirements of how to send there tracks.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital because of so much headroom we get in todays music, We can do so much with it, without worrying about noise.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Not that i know of.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Mixing for other clients.
