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

  32. A: We either start from scratch (I make a beat and you write to it), or, what many of my clients do, and what I prefer to do, is they will write a demo (either to piano/guitar or even a Youtube beat they found), they'll send me a voice memo, and I'll build the song around their idea. Some of the best songs I've made have stemmed from voice memos. Usually, my clients will send me 2-3 references songs so I can can get an idea of how they want their song to sound. We'll toss ideas back and forth and I will produce the song to completion and do revisions until the client is 100% satisfied. For mixing/mastering: The client sends me the stems (all tracks rendered as separate files–e.g. kick.wav, lead vox.wav, claps.wav, etc). Then, I mix them and send it back for any feedback/revisions. Then I continue with revisions until the client is satisfied.

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

  34. A: Producing, finishing projects, mixing, mastering, creative layering, editing, tuning, quantizing etc.
