Interview with Joe Munday
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: The score for a documentary for Beats By Dre, a composition for Mount Gay and about 5 EPs/Albums, some my own, some collabs and some for clients
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Creativity and making things sound as best as they can
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Ableton Juno Vermona DDR 909 727
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: A career in music is never straightforward. I have toured the world in bands and as a DJ, run venues, programmed culture for brands and now work in the studio. I'd say i've been 'professional' (i.e paying the bills with music) for 8 years but ive been making records since i was a kid.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: First idea usually is the best idea!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I specialise in music that combines electronic and acoustic elements and can make sounds for the dancefloor and headphone listening alike. I feel comfortable producing across genres (and know collaborators and players that broaden that scope further) but my output would probably usually be found filed under electronica, house, alternative, ambient and modern composition.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Experience, enthusiasm and a love of the craft
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: With a client: Outline parameters, pull in references, negotiate and get to work! On my own: experiment, procrastinate, organise synths, listen to other music, generally mess about, get excited and lay something down. Repeat until something comes!
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Modest but professional personal studio as well as studio share with the Rhythm Section studio in London whose gear boats: Monitoring Geithain RL906 Monitors Pioneer RM-07 Monitors Eve Audio TS-108 Subwoofer Auratone Reference Monitor (single) Drawmer CMC2 Monitor Controller Recording RME Babyface Pro Audio-Midi Interface MOTU Ultralite MK4 Mac Mini w/ Logic X & Ableton 10 Loads of plugins; waves / fabfilter etc. However, we advise you bring your own computer / laptop if possible Midi Controller Novation SL MkIII 49 Key Ableton Push 2 Mixing Desk Soundcraft Delta 200 (32-4-2) Synthesizers Roland Juno 106 Roland J3XP with Mode Machines PG-300 (modded) Akai AX60 Siel DK 600 Ensoniq ESQ-1 Studio Electronics SE1X Red Eye Acidlab Bombass Freebass 383 (with resonance mod) Korg Arp Odyssey Module Korg Monologue Roland JV-1080 Roland SH101 Twisted Electrons MegaFM Eurorack Modular system including: Intellijel Atlantis & Intellijel Metropolis, DrumDokta 2, TipTop 808 Modules, etc. (enquire for full spec as constantly changing) Waldorf Pulse 2 Mutable Instruments Anushri Yamaha TX81Z (DX11 Rack Version) Yamaha MX49 Drum Machines Roland 909 Electron Analog RYTM mkI MPC 2000XL (8 Outs, CF reader) Pioneer Toraiz SP-16 Roland 606 Outboard/Effects Samson 48 Point Patchbay x5 Roland DEP-3 Reverb Korg SDD-3000 Delay Empress Tape Delay Empress Multi Drive Empress Compressor JoeMeek Stereo DAD Compressor Roland SRC 2000 Reverb Electro Harmonix Memory Boy Analog Delay Benidub Spring Amp II w/ 2 different tanks Drawmer DS 201 Gate Akai P1 Phaser Mutron Phaser III (one half of bi-phase) Rocktron Parametric EQ Dunlop Wah (vintage) Roland PH-2 Phaser Zoom 2001 Multi FX DBX 166 (1993 model) Yamaha E1005 Analog delay Way-Huge Supa Puss Analog Delay Roland DD10 delay Moog MF Drive Moog Ring Modulator Sansamp PSA-1 Distortion And heaps more or varying quality and vintageness….!
