What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
Know what you want and have your Stuff together. We do this for far less than what we should be paid. It's important to have a project that’s ready to be mixed and not expect the engineer to fix things when it's sent to them. This means comped Vocals Leads and Backgrounds. comped Gtrs. A Complete arrangement.
What questions do you ask prospective clients?
Is it in Pro Tools? Are you sending separated .wav files? Is the songs arrangement complete? Can I hear a reference mix? Is the song Organized?
What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
That the song can be something that it’s not. Or that the song will be on par with other music that i've done in the past. It’s just not realistic if the production isn't there to begin with.
How long something should take?
Depends on the material that’s sent. The more elements in the song i.e. kicks snares gtrs vocals background vocals.... well the longer the song will take.
What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
How long will the song take? Depends on the Song.
