Interview with Leonardo Ortegon

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

  2. A: I will take any project with full attention. I will analyze your music in detail, in order to come up with the best posible plan of action.

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

  4. A: Ask many questions in order to know if the provider is able to fulfill your needs. Always listen and analyze their previous work.

  5. Q: How would you describe your style?

  6. A: Simplistic, detailed and professional.

  7. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  8. A: Less is more. Do not over power your productions with too many elements just to fill up the space. It is a better choice to use less elements, and have each element perform a stronger rhythmical or musical idea.

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

  10. A: Electronic Music.

  11. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  12. A: Detailed listening.

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

  14. A: Tonal balance. I believe tonal balance is the most important goal in Mastering. Unfortunately in this age, we as mastering engineers and music producers, have to compete with overall loudness/volume in a song. But I also think that dynamic range is far more important than overall loudness. Which means that in my process, I will always give priority to volume space, tonal quality and dynamic range, even if I have to sacrifice a few decibels in the final loudness result.

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

  16. A: The very first step, which I believe is the most important one, is to listen to the song in detail from beginning to end. I carefully analyze the song, not from a production standpoint, but from a frequency response/balance standpoint. My main focus when mastering a song, is to understand its overall tonal balance! The ultimate goal in mastering is to achieve a satisfactory tonal balance, in order for the song to be able to perform well in majority of sound systems.

  17. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  18. A: I currently work on my professional studio which was designed specifically for Mastering. My studio monitor placement is located about 7 feet apart from me, giving me the ability to properly listen to all the frequencies, as well as the volume balance in between each element. I have never been a fan of sitting too close to any speaker, since I believe that will not portray an accurate sonic representation.

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

  20. A: I currently do Digital Mastering for Electronic Music productions, as well as full song productions in the Electronic Music genre.
