Interview with Sarah Caltieri
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I'm especially proud of my debut album. I wanted every single song to sound amazing on the 10 track album and I performed every song to a live audience before shortlisting them and co-produced it with a triple platinum award winner working with top session players in the industry to get every single note and sound on the album the way that I wanted it. It took 2 years and a remix to get it right, but I am proud of this art piece that I will leave to the world as my legacy!

A: Several dance remixes of my own compositions and also an original single release.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both as I feel the analog sound gives a vibrancy and a warmth that digital just can't do not matter what effects are put on it. It's like a magic vibration, but there are so many tricks with digital that can be incorporated in enhancing areas of song and production that analog just can't do.

Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: One I've learnt through my years is taking the best take of a vocal and tweaking any bits that may be slightly out of tune or pumping in an extra letter or word rather than putting a vocal through an auto tune when not needed as I feel the voice is the most prominent part of a song in some cases and should be expressed.
