Interview with Dan Letson

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: One of my favorite projects that I am particularly proud of is not yet released, but I had the opportunity to work as both a music composer and audio engineer. It was a challenging project that required a lot of creativity and technical skill to bring the artist's vision to life, but I was able to collaborate closely with them to create a unique and powerful sound that captured the emotion and intensity of the music. It was a great experience to see the project come together and I'm excited to share it with the world when it is released.

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: At the moment, I am working on mixing and mastering an EP for a big artist, as well as producing music for sync placement in film, television, and advertising.

  5. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  6. A: No, I don't know anyone on SoundBetter.

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: I prefer digital over analog because of the convenience and flexibility it offers in terms of workflow and editing capabilities, as well as the high quality of digital audio technology. While analog equipment can provide a unique and warm sound, digital technology has come a long way in replicating that sound and even surpassing it in some cases, while offering a wider range of options and possibilities for audio manipulation and processing.

  9. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  10. A: My promise to my clients is to deliver high-quality, professional audio engineering and music production services that meet or exceed their expectations, and to communicate clearly and openly throughout the process to ensure their satisfaction. I am committed to providing a collaborative and positive experience for my clients and delivering a final product that they are proud to share with their audience.

  11. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  12. A: What I like most about my job is the creative process of working with clients to bring their artistic vision to life, and the satisfaction of making them happy with the final result.

  13. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  14. A: One common question customers ask me is "Can you give me a rough estimate of how long the project will take?" and my answer is "It depends on the specific needs of the project and the level of complexity involved, but I will always work to deliver high-quality results within the agreed-upon timeline."

  15. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  16. A: One of the biggest misconceptions about what I do is that it's a quick and easy process to mix and master a song or produce a full album. In reality, audio engineering and music production require a lot of technical skill, creativity, and attention to detail, and can often take many hours of work to get the perfect sound for a project. Many people also underestimate the amount of time and effort it takes to communicate with clients, collaborate on creative decisions, and deliver a final product that meets or exceeds their expectations.

  17. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  18. A: When I work with prospective clients, I ask a variety of questions to understand their creative vision, goals, and specific needs for the project. Some of the questions I typically ask include: What is the genre and style of your music? What is the purpose and intended audience of the project? What is your timeline and deadline for the project? What are your specific needs for the project, such as mixing and mastering, vocal tuning, or production elements? Can you provide any references or examples of songs that have a similar sound or style to what you are looking to achieve? By asking these questions and more, I am able to gain a clear understanding of the client's needs and goals, and work collaboratively with them to bring their vision to life.

  19. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  20. A: If you're looking to hire a provider like me on SoundBetter, my advice would be to do your research and take the time to listen to their previous work to make sure it aligns with your creative vision and expectations. Additionally, communicate clearly and openly about your specific needs and goals for the project, and be open to constructive feedback and collaboration throughout the process. Lastly, make sure to establish clear timelines, deadlines, and expectations upfront to ensure a smooth and successful project.

  21. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  22. A: If I were on a desert island and could only take five pieces of gear, I would choose a solar panel to charge my MacBook Pro, my MacBook Pro itself, my favorite headphones, a keyboard, and an audio interface to record and produce music.

  23. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  24. A: My career path started seven years ago when I began studying music production, and later pursued a degree in sound engineering at Abbey Road Institute, which has given me a solid foundation in audio principles and technical skills. I have been working as a professional in the music industry for five years, providing services such as mixing and mastering, vocal tuning, and production to clients. Throughout my career, I have continued to learn and grow my skills, keeping up with industry trends and exploring new techniques to bring the best possible service to my clients.

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  26. A: I would describe my style as a blend of technical precision and creative innovation, where I use my knowledge and expertise in audio engineering and music production to enhance the sonic quality of a project, while also bringing a fresh perspective and creative vision to help the artist achieve their unique sound and artistic goals.

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

  28. A: Both The Weeknd and Dua Lipa are incredibly talented artists with unique sounds and styles, and I would be honoured to work with either of them. The Weeknd's fusion of R&B, pop, and electronic music has pushed creative boundaries in the industry, and his music always has a cinematic quality that would be exciting to work on. Meanwhile, Dua Lipa has an infectious energy and catchy pop hooks that make her music irresistible, and I would love to help bring her dynamic vocals and upbeat production to life.

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

  30. A: One music production tip I would recommend is to prioritise finding the best sound possible during the creative process, even if it takes you more time to finish the track. It's better to spend extra time tweaking and experimenting with different sounds and effects to achieve the desired result, rather than settling for a subpar sound that may negatively impact the overall quality of the final product.

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

  32. A: As a versatile professional on SoundBetter, I work on a wide range of music genres, including but not limited to pop, electronic, rock, hip-hop, R&B, and singer-songwriter.

  33. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  34. A: While I possess a variety of strong skills in audio engineering and music production, my top priority is always to make my clients happy by providing them with exceptional service and delivering high-quality work that meets or exceeds their expectations.

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

  36. A: When working on a song, I bring my expertise in audio engineering, music production, and creative vision to enhance its overall sound quality and emotional impact, whether it's through mixing and mastering, vocal tuning, or production elements such as arrangement, instrumentation, and effects. Additionally, I strive to bring a fresh perspective to the project and work collaboratively with the artist to help them achieve their artistic vision and goals.

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

  38. A: My typical work process involves starting by discussing the client's specific needs and goals for the project, then importing their recorded tracks into my digital audio workstation (DAW) and editing them as needed, applying various effects and processing tools to enhance the sound quality, then mixing and mastering the final product to achieve the desired sonic results. Throughout the process, I maintain open communication with my client to ensure their satisfaction with the project's progress and final outcome.

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: My studio setup includes a combination of high-quality hardware and software equipment, such as a powerful mac system, digital audio workstation software, studio monitors, headphones, microphones, audio interfaces. I also have a sound-treated room with acoustic panels and bass traps to minimise unwanted reflections and optimise the sound quality of my recordings and mixes.

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

  42. A: There are many musicians and music production professionals who inspire me, including names like Quincy Jones, Max Martin, Rick Rubin, Finneas O'Connell, and Ludwig Göransson, among others, who have each made significant contributions to the music industry with their unique styles and innovative techniques.

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

  44. A: The most frequent type of service I provide for my clients is mix and mastering of their audio tracks, which involves balancing, equalising, and enhancing the overall sound quality of their recordings to make them ready for release on different platforms such as Spotify, Apple Music, etc. Additionally, vocal tuning is another important aspect of my work, which involves adjusting the pitch, timing, and tone of recorded vocals to ensure they are in key and sound polished.
