Interview with Aidan Swift

  1. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  2. A: I have a pair of Focal Alpha 65s on IsoAcoustic stands, connected to an Apollo Twin X. I work almost entirely in the box, so I've accrued a vast majority of industry standard tools and effects. I like to control Logic and Pro Tools with an Avid C24 Console. I have a Komplete Kontrol keyboard when synthetic instruments need to be added to a production, and a collection of high-end studio mics to record anything from the real world.

  3. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  4. A: In this era of computer hardware, in the box processing has never sounded this good on its own merit, and can nearly exactly replicate all time favorite hardware units.

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

  6. A: I feel like the general public sees mixing as just moving a couple faders, and producing as just pushing a few buttons. It is far, far more complicated than that and I think that's the best thing about it. The more challenging the better in my opinion, that's what makes the possibilities endless.

  7. Q: How would you describe your style?

  8. A: I feel I am haphazard yet organized. I do what I believe is best for the song first, no matter how strenuous it may be to achieve, and then ensure it meets my technical-correctness standards.

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

  10. A: I would love to work with AJR. They have been my biggest inspiration for my own music, and I feel like the creativity we share would make amazing productions.

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

  12. A: I've worked on countless Indie-Pop records, rock songs, and synth-centered songs.

  13. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  14. A: My strongest skill is mixing music. I've done it for many years and imagine doing it for many more.

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

  16. A: I feel I bring a solid balance between a musical and perfectionist mindset. I enjoy a great sounding song on its own merit, and love to help make sure it is all technically up to snuff.

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

  18. A: I work primarily in Logic Pro X, but I also use Pro Tools from time to time. I import the given files into the session and start with mixing drums and vocals. I spend a lot of time getting a lot of the technical stuff out of the way, then as the channel strips grow I add creative processing such as verb/delay and saturation.

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

  20. A: My personal favorite producer is Ryan Met, his ability to warp instruments from multiple different genres into a single production encourages me to spend that extra time making sure I make the best sound-design choices possible.

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

  22. A: I typically do the final mixes and mastering for clients.
