Interview with Manne Madsen

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

  2. A: It must have been when I got the call from the manager of a band saying that they had chosen my mix over a very famous mix engineer because they liked my version better. I was very new and didn't know what to expect but it really helped my confidence in my work after that.

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

  4. A: A project with Enrique Drageseth where we release one new single first friday every month for 10 months.

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

  6. A: Yes, Morgan Nicolaysen at Propeller Mastering. He's fantastic!

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: Digital. I work much faster that way even though I love to mix analog it's not for todays market that I'm trying to reach.

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

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

  16. A: That it has to be expensive. Today it's not always like that. Engineers like myself find ways to get more efficient.

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

  18. A: Sometimes I ask clients to put together a spotify playlist that i can reference from, which helps a lot to hear where they get inspiration from.

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

  20. A: Figure out why you want somebody to mix your song and tell the mixer exactly that.
