Interview with Leopolina Duranovic
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I am proud of each peace of work that makes my client happy. The more challenging the better as it pushes me to do new challenging things to achieve the best possible professional standards needed. I think there is always something new to be learned.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Currently I am working on some of my own music with my team as well as a Rock album of Ponocni Express and Van Milan
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: I am currently new to sound better as I recently heard about it so i don't know anybody that I could recommend but if you know anybody that is good I would love to know and check out their work.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I think this is a question where no serious producer can give a definite answer.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: My promise is that they will always get 110 percent from me and my team and that we will work hard to achieve what our client is asking from us.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I do not think there is a single aspect that I can pick. I think that each step in the process is special. From songwriting, to arranging, producing mixing and mastering. There is no greater feeling than seeing that hard work pay off and your client happy.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: It is usually weather what they want can be achieved? I always consult with my team when it comes to this question and most of the time our answer is yes. If there is will , there is a way.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: I think the biggest misconception is that as you get older its too late for you too get into music or do it as a living. I think it is never too late. As long as that is what you want to do, love to do, time is not a factor. Its never too late to share your talent with others.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I think the first question is what are your goals? In what direction you want your song to go to? What is a song that you like that you want a similar kind of atmosphere in yours? And the most important what you want done and by when do you need it?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: I would say that communication is the key. I want you to get exactly what you want out of your work. I am willing to take as much time as you think you need to get your product to a professional standard. I would also tell you do not give up. Whether you are working with me or somebody else , if this is what you love to do keep pushing.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: I would take my laptop, a solar power generated battery, my audio interface, guitar and my headphones because this would still allow me to continue working on music.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: My father is in music his entire life so from a very young age I have been introduced to the world of music. Professionally I have been doing this for the past 3 years and in the meantime finished music production and sound engineering school .
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I open to any suggestions and any style of work , as long as that style and way still allows me to follow the professionally set standards to make the music great and ready for release.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I think that working with any artist would be beneficial because like I said each artist brings a different thing to the table. If I had to choose one it would be Nickelback because they are what influenced my love for rock music and introduced me to that world.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: I would say the one thing that saved me is do not fix what is not broken. Sometimes we tend to over due it sometimes with adding too many things at once. The greatest quality is getting something to sound good with minimal support of instruments and processes in the mix. Knowing when to stop and when going forward will make the song go in a bad direction is a quality each producer should have.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I usually work on pop/ rock music , but can also work on country and other related styles
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I think my strongest skill in the studio is my ear. I can hear the song in my head before i even start working on it and once i know the direction i am going in the process moves forward fairly quickly.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I think I bring emotion into a song. I think music is supposed to make us feel things. Whether it be happy , sad , every note every word should have a meaning behind why its there and make the listener feel what the artist wants to portray.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I usually like to first know what the client is trying to achieve with the music he or she is working on. I want to know what they expect out of it before i get started. Then i go to work and bring it to what they want while getting it to an industry professional standard.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Currently i work out of my home. I have a shure sm7b dynamic. mic. , as well as a tannoy and a couple of stereo set mics along with shure sm57. I also have the focusrite isa one analog pre and the Boehringer ultra gain pro, i use yamaha hs8 and hs 5 studio monitors as well as pre sonus eris 3.5. I use cubase 11 pro along with Grammy award winning Waves plug ins and fab filter, blue cat, ssl plug ins, etc. i use the ur44c audio interface and have an assortment of guitars and pedals in the studio as well as a midi keyboard.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I am very inspired by all producers. I think each producer has its own signature and a way that they do things. I think that we can all learn from each other but I admire anyone who always strives to do the best work possible and give it their all to achieve that.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I mostly do arranging, songwriting, mixing and mastering. I love anything and everything that has to do with production and put a lot of work into it ,
