Interview with Aaron Bryn
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I got the chance to produce a Jason Derulo pitch. What made it unique is that I got to work with his actual vocals, which made it extra special.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Focussing on my services as engineer while working on exciting projects and sessions on the side.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Luke Matthew & Fred Miller
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Q: What's your (lowest) price? A: Pricing can be found on my profile. For bigger projects, it depends on that specific project. For every budget there's a maximum of time, effort, priority etc. I can invest. The price I reflect will always be fair in relation to the effort I put into it.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Depends on the requested service, but anything to make sure I understand the vision.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Making sure the vocal editing and mixing is top notch.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: To perfect vocal performances, clean-up recordings and mix according to the clients needs.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Analog for character, digital for control.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I've got an acoustically treated studio, build to provide a space for what I do best; recording, editing and mixing. What I use on the daily: Logic Pro X, Universal Audio Apollo, Melodyne, Autotune, Soothe, FabFilter, Soundtoys, VocAlign Ultra, Gullfoss, RX, 1176, 2A, VOXBOX, Distressor, Lauten Audio Atlantis FC-387, Focal, Fender Stratocaster (USA), Taylor (USA)
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Connecting with creative and passionate people. I get the most joy out of making people their vision/ideas a reality. And specifically with vocal editing/mixing, it's a job where you learn your own secrets. Even when explaining them to others, they will never apply it the same way you do yourself. Vocals are never the same, so a lot of it depends on feeling rather than theory.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Making sure to be on the same page in what the goals are with who I'm working with. Know their style, taste and direction. The work and experience will do the rest.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That vocal production is just another part of a mixing engineer's job. Vocals are a delicate thing. Truly understanding the sensitivity and how to work with it is totally different than any other element in music. It's its own thing and an unique expertise.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: From a very early age I've played many instruments, but mainly guitar. In my early teens I discovered music production and with that found my true passion. I've had several artist projects with two that I signed label deals with (Montis, Small Talk). Since I was 16 I had sessions with other people, and by 18 I started having sessions internationally. I got a degree as Music Producer while exploring songwriting too. I've never stopped learning and growing as an all-round musician and will always be eager for self development.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I visit many writing camps/sessions as a songwriter/producer, but always take up the role as vocal engineer as well. At these sessions I get to work with many different voices in different recording settings. Nowadays I recognise any issue recordings might bring and most importantly know how fix them.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: - Guitar - Macbook - Headphones - Interface - Mic
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: As a kid I went to a Coldplay concert with my family. It impressed me so much, it's the highest entry on my bucket list of people to one day work with.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Don't be afraid to try things you don't know. Always stay adventurous and expand the possibilities. Trust your ears first, analyze after.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Find someone that respects your vision and can relate to your ideas. Someone you expect to have the right balance between improving and retaining the set goal.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I'll always stay true to your ideas and goals. Together we'll discover what is possible to make that idea and/or goal the best we possibly can make it.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Storytelling music and/or lyrics. Very clean while atmospheric and emotional.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Most of my work can be considered as Pop. But I also have a strong connection with the more experimental/indie side.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I've learned so much from many people I've had the pleasure of worked with, no matter the level. Everyone has something that inspires me or shed new light on the way to work.
