Interview with Quentin Rieux

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: In 2019, I did the mastering of a big band album. It was an unforgettable experience. It was a tribute to a deceased French composer. These original arrangements had never been played. It was broadcast a lot on social media because the music was great.

  4. A: A cover of Elton John - Can You Feel the Love Tonight for an album with a singer in Toulouse. 2 albums of current artists and I help my friend techno DJ, Space 92 (best seller Beatport in the world 2020) with these new tracks.

  6. A: No, but I recommend the other mix engineers on the site because I have observed a lot of professional people.

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: I mainly use the analog emulation plugin for now because it's more practical. When I could I would equip myself with more analog because it's deeper but many emulations aire good.

  10. A: I finish my job when he is satisfied.

  11. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  12. A: The artistic creation

  13. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  14. A: Can i ring as loud as... ? If the reference is similar, I say "I will do what I can". But if the reference has nothing to do with it, I tell the client that it won't sound the same, because the reference is not the most similar.

  15. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  16. A: it has no artistic choice in what we do.

  17. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  18. A: Comment a été fait l'enregistrement ? Si les pistes peuvent être le plus bruts possible. S'il a un morceau de référence dans le même style.

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

  20. A: De régler les problèmes dès la prise de son et de ne pas attendre.

  21. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  22. A: My headphone Focal Clear Pro because without good listening we can do nothing. Fabfilter for clean Waves plugin Melodyne SSL Channel Strip

  23. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  24. A: I have been a musician for over 15 years. I went to the music conservatory specializing in computer-assisted music 7 years ago. Since then I have been composing, mixing mastring for various projects. I had the chance to approach recording, mixing and mastering studios where I learned a lot. I have done several trainings like that of MJtutoriel which is a reference in France, David Guetta has also done it. I am also working at Sacem, copyright of musical works in France.

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  26. A: Modern and Clean.

  27. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  28. A: I would have liked to have worked with the Daft Punk because they are real robots who work in a surgical way to obtain perfection, that would be very instructive.

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

  30. A: You always have to wonder about adding an instrument or a plugin, what does it bring to the song? If the intake is nonexistent or even worse, do not be afraid to remove it.

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

  32. A: I work on very different genre music like pop, trap, EDM, Jazz and more and more instrumental.

  33. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  34. A: I work as a scientist but above all am a musician with a keen ear.

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

  36. A: After my intervention, the mix is ​​clearer, more harmonious and the master warmer, punchy and brilliant.

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

  38. A: There are 3 distinct phases in the process. First, I make sure that the project I receive is finished from a musical point of view, if necessary I adjust (rhythm, pitch correction ...). Two elements, I mix on a logic Pro X file already set (instrument groups, Reverb bus, Delay, Parallel Compression ...). I check the staging gain and do the mixing. Each track receives a special treatment, with cleaning and coloring, compression, and if necessary clipping, limiting, saturating. I very often use the side-chain to connect the kick and bass but also on all the melodic instruments. Specialization often comes at the end. Three that I do the mastering on a separate file, again with presets that I fine-tune according to the style and the reference track. For example for a jazz or orchestral piece, I make sure not to overwhelm the dynamics. I refer to the following LUFS rules if it is for pressing or broadcasting on streaming platforms.

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

A: 🎛 Audio Interface : MOTU, Universal Audio Apollo Twin 🔈Focal 80 Alpha,Yamaha HS8🎧 Focal Clear Pro🎤 Shure SM7, SM57, SM58, ProjectB1, 💻 MacMook Pro, Mac Mini 32 Go Ram💽 Logic Pro X🎚 Plugin : UAD, Waves, SSL, Melodyne, FabFilter, T-RackS, Serum, iZotope, Soundtoys, ToonTrack, Native Instrument Komplete 13 ultimate, NI komplete kontrol S88 MKII.

  41. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  42. A: I love Kygo because he makes recognizable and modern sound. I like Docteur Dre because it's a great producer et business man. For me Dave Pensado was the best mix engineer of the world, his songs are amazing.

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

  44. A: Before embellishing the stems with a specific routing chain for each type of instrument, I clean one by one the stems. I carefully make pitch corrections on vocals in order to have something musical and natural. I work a lot on kick and bass to get a balance on the other groups of instruments.
