Interview with Greg Inman Productions
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What was your inspiration behind this particular record? Is there a specific feel that you'd want the record to feel like? Is there a reference song that you'd like the mix/production to sound like? What is your normal process when working with a producer or engineer? Do you guys speak throughout the process?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Make sure you give as many details as possible on what it is you're looking for. No matter how big or small the detail is, make sure to let it be known. The more details the better you have a chance of getting EXACTLY what you need.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I'd love to work with T-Pain. We have a similar creative energy in the studio. I love to watch his creative process on Youtube and Twitch. Amazing producer and songwriter.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: DON'T OVERTHINK IT! Music is a vibe, if it feels good, 9 times out of 10 it is good.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Hip Hop, R&B, Pop, Afrobeat, Trap. Pretty much whatever a client asks me for.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I'm very attentive to what an client asks for. Once a client tells me what it should sound and feel like, I'm laser focused on that. I'm great at communicating with a client throughout the entire process, to assure we have what it is we're trying to accomplish.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: A different type of creative energy. I take time to listen and understand my client's vision, then I treat it as if it's my own vision.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I like to start off by listening to a few songs similar to my client's request as a reference point whether I'm producing or mixing a record. Then without question I dive in, and start to create. I like to be in touch with my client along the way each part of the process, so they hear and see the progress. Whether its laying the drum pattern and a basic melody, I reach out to make sure it's what they need and continue that process until we have a completed record that we BOTH enjoy.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I produce original compositions for rappers, singers, top liners, and commercial ads. I also work as a recording/mix engineer as a work for hire. I do songwriting work as well whenever called upon.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Yes! Jayy Starr, she's a great writer, artist, rapper, top liner. We have done a lot of work together, I'm her main engineer actually. She is a great person to know, always has been. Very punctual, great communicator, did I mention she is great at what she does.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I do majority of my work on my custom built PC. I do most of my production in FL Studio 20 using virtual instruments unless a song calls for live instrumentation, I'll outsource if I need to. I do the majority of my mixing in ProTools 12. I use various Waves plugins, Izotope, and many other digital tools to achieve the high quality mixes, I've done. Everything gives a different color, so I try to have all of the latest software for production and engineering situations.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I'm most proud of the work I did on a 2 Live Crew project. My role was beatmaker, co-producer, and assistant engineer. I'm so proud of it because even though I didn't executive produce it, I played a big part in the overall sound of the project. Not only that, I got to work with a legendary group from my area. I still have a great relationship with those guys, which made me proud to be a part of that process. The executive producer also played a BIG part in my progression as a producer/engineer. He has around 10 platinum and gold records, so for him to approve of my work, and give me pointers to improve my sound, man that was super cool!
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I am currently producing, mixing and mastering tracks for clients from California, Miami, New York, all over! I'm just making music and having fun doing it.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise to give 110% and go the extra mile every time to make sure you're happy with the final product.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: There's no one thing, but I would say the client's reaction after I send them a final version. Just knowing I was able to be creative and satisfy my clients.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been involved in music since I was 9 years old. I wrote my first ever song at 9 (I still have it too, lol). I dabbled in being a performing artist for maybe 8 years, until I couldn't get production anymore. I took the initiative to learn production and I eventually left the whole artist thing behind. I attended Full Sail University for a while. I have a total of maybe 10-20 years in the field of music. Ranging from writing songs, to writing hooks, performing at shows, producing full projects for local artists, tried to be a DJ, got into engineering once I started at Full Sail.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: T-Pain, Pharrell Williams, Dave Pensado, Derek Ali, Ken Lewis, Zaytoven. Most of the clients I've gotten the opportunity to work with have inspired me as well. I've ran into some very very talented people.
