Interview with Echotect
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I worked on John David Williams "Under the Lights" I was a junior recording engineer on that project and it was a live session, so everyone was playing at the same time. It's a really cool feeling to have 4 talented musicians in the same room with perfect chemistry making music that you are actively working on.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Currently, I am working on my own album.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: I don't know him personally, but Matt Sim knows how to get perfect clarity in his mixes. every element of the music is perfectly clear to the listener.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital. I was raised in the digital age and can troubleshoot and modify software all day and night. Digital has become so diverse that it can even mimic analog gear.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise that what is in your head is what you will be listening to in a week.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love seeing people become emotional when their finished project is done, when what they had in their head comes to life as a finished product and it is more than they ever wanted.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: "Can you make me sound like Billie Eillish?" Response: "I can give you vocal effects and atmosphere that matches hers, but how you deliver your vocal is what gives you your unique sonic signature".
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That I just turn volume knobs up and down until it sounds good.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What are 3 words that describe the atmosphere of your music and track?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Know what you want. As an artist, it's your job to make sure your art comes out the way that you want it. If you make metal music, don't go to someone who specializes in worship music.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: A vocal shield (rigid fiberglass), a guitar, my shure SM7B, an apollo twin, and a pair of sennheiser headphones.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I am developing my career currently. I have been mixing freelance for 6 years.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: My style is very aggressive and punchy. I like when you can feel kick drums pumping in your chest even on low-end speakers.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would love to work with Jasiah, he is one of the most aggressive rappers I have ever heard and I would love to hear what my aggressive mixes sound like with his lyricism and aggression.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Learning how to compress and EQ properly is half the battle. It takes trial and error but your mixes will improve tenfold with these 2 simple tools. Also, with reverb, less is generally more.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Pop, Pop-Rock
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Empathy, which is my ability to feel what an artist feels to help them make music that is exactly what they want.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Energy. If a song's mix doesn't "hit" you right, it will not sound professional. This is especially true for the low-end, around 80hz.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I mix based on frequency response. Generally bringing in low end first and working my way up the spectrum analyzer. I call this the sonic pyramid approach.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have an apollo twin DAC, a shure SM7B, ableton live 11 suite, an assortment of guitars, arturia MIDI keyboard, and a pair of JBL 305p's.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Machine Gun Kelly, Bring me the Horizon,
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Mixing, I take raw tracks and turn them into a song full of life that is radio ready.
