Interview with Dynamo Audio
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Last year Almost Honest. released their record “ Seiches and sirens“ it was very well received and reviewed by many magazines, websites, and bloggers. It’s up on iTunes and Spotify if you feel the need to check it out it rips. We are actually doing pre-production on their next full length now.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Right now I’m producing/tracking three solo artists albums, three bands full length records, and also some projects for myself. I also squeeze some engineering in for friends of mine when I can. Tracking some drones, re-amping guitar’s, lots of fun stuff.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I bridge the gap between both, I have such a respect for analog gear but at the same time there’s no denying the digital is really starting to catch up. My Studio is a great blend between analog and digital.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: My promise, is that I will do everything in my power to bring your vision to life. All I ask is that you be open and honest with me from the beginning of the process. If I know what you want it’s way easier to make that happen.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love creating, I love the process of taking the song and making it into its own entity. There’s a real power and taking what’s in someone’s head and making it a reality.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Mostly customers want to know about prices and what my rates are per song or our. Luckily here those answers are already on the front of my page.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Isn’t recording just putting a microphone in front of something and recording it? I mean it away yes it’s true, but there’s so much more that goes into this.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: The first question I ask any client is what are your goals for this project? Is it a passion project, is it something you just have to do? Would you still write this song and release it even if you knew you may never make a son off of it? A lot of people get into this business thinking that they’re going to be able to quit their jobs and just run away and for a lot of musicians this happens but at the end of the day are you doing this because you love music, or are you doing it because you think it’ll be a payday? If you’re just doing this to make money there a way easier ways to do it musics not one of them.

I ask this because,If you’re just doing this to make money there are way easier ways to do it, and musics not one of them
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Listen carefully to the mixes that they’ve done, make sure that they move you. Anybody can make a nice clean sounding mix but does it actually bring emotion to you?
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Manley reference cardioid mic Martin acoustic Gibson Les Paul Mac mini Apollo twin duo
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have been in the music industry my whole life but on the performer side. When I started the studio I took all my bad experiences in other studios to help me mold how I produce music today. There’s been a lot of times when I was younger that a producer took advantage of us or wasn’t fair about the work to money ratio. So every time I have a new client I’d like to make sure that they’re comfortable and they are heard at the end of the day this is their project, not mine Even though I put my heart into the process. I’m just the guy that has to help them get it to the next level. A guide on a critical musical quest.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I wouldn’t say I really had a mixing style that sounds like anyone else I just like everything to sound big And wide. There’s an old saying that goes “I want everyone’s mama to be happy in the band.” I wanna make sure that everyone gets their time to shine and that everyone’s hard work gets heard.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I want to work with people who have The drive and the want to be successful. I would rather help lift a new artist up, than record an established artist that won’t appreciate all the hard work as much. I’m just an underdog kind a guy and I’m always rooting for them.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Get it right at the source, anyone who tells you they’re going to “fix it in the mix“ probably isn’t going to be able to fix it in the mix.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Primarily rock, metal, and heavy metal. I also get heavily in the blues, doom, and some grind core music. I still feel like I’m very strong with pop rock and lighter styles as well I have just been working in Metal a lot longer.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Delegating, even if there something that I am not the best that I have a team of people I work with that can handle anything. Whatever you need is just an email away for me to get done for you.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I being a passion to make something great. I add as much, or as little input as you, and I agree the song needs. I get as involved as the project needs me to.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: The process depends on the client. I tailor my process to fit the clients needs, whether they need to start from the ground up recording drums all the way up to Vocals, or just need me to re-amps and guitars and then send them back to them.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a Protools/ and Logic set up using a Mac Pro. 24 channels of mic preamps, I can handle any drum session. Focusrite, Manley, Vintech, & presonus mic preamps. I have everything you need to record a full band right in my studio. I have a Control room, Live room, and a separate vocal booth for quiet recording.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: There are so many to name. Robert “Murr” Lange would be a huge influence. Joel Hamilton, Ross Robinson, And Bob Clearmountain to make some older school guys. Some more modern producers would be Machine, Adam “Nolly” Getgood, Carson Slovak, Grant McFarland, and Taylor Larson.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Full production of artists. From pre production, to recording the musicians, mixing, and mastering
