Interview with Joshua Logsdon

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

  2. A: So one of my clients by the name of Allen Griffin is currently working on his project right now, so it isn't finished, but I love it already because it is pulling me out of my comfort zone in all areas. I'm the producer, recording engineer, mixing engineer, and mastering engineer on this project. I love a challenge and when it all comes together the way my client envisions, it makes it all worth it to me.

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: I'm currently working on releasing my own music, but I just finished mastering a project for a friend well-known in Christian Music. In also producing, recording, mixing, and mastering a full length album for 2 clients as well as an EP for another client next year. I'm very excited for this coming year.

  5. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  6. A: I'm actually very new to SoundBetter, but I hope to build friendships with the people on this platform!

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: Both. Digital may be cleaner, but analog has those natural tones that add texture and flavor to a mix especially in vocals.

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

  10. A: I promise you that I won't stop until you're happy. I will put your wants and needs first because your music is your life. Being an artist myself, I understand how important that really is.

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

  12. A: I love interacting with artists and helping them develop a sound they can call their own and be proud of. It also gives me a personal opportunity to discover new music that I can listen to on my own time. I always support my clients the best I can.

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

  14. A: "Hey can you make me sound like this?" or "Hey can you make a beat like this?" My answer is usually always "yes"

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

  16. A: It's hard for people to understand how I work so quickly, so they think I'm not doing much. in reality, it's the years I've put in that allows me to be able to push out a quality product in not much time at all.

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

  18. A: Why do you make music? What or who inspires you? What in life is most important to you being an artist/creative?

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

  20. A: I can't stress enough how important it is to label your stems/tracks. Just doing that makes my job so much easier. And also if you can, provide a reference track.

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

  22. A: Gotta have the Focusrite 18i20 with me! Along with the DBX 286s, ART Pro Channel 2, my Shure SRH940, and my Bluebird Condenser mic.

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

  24. A: I never really had a career path. This has always been my side job, but I've been doing it for 10 years now constantly growing in clientele and skill.

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  26. A: I try to keep my tracks warm but punchy at the same time keeping up with modern mixing methods and standards but with some flavor.

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

  28. A: I would love to work with Drake because of his versatility. His sound is such a vibe and it never fails to be a hit.

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

  30. A: Mix quickly.

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

  32. A: I usually work with rap, hip-hop, pop, and R&B. I have worked on country and rock, but not as much.

  33. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  34. A: My strongest skill is being able to work quickly and efficiently without compromising the quality of the mix.

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

  36. A: I bring passion to the song, giving it my everything making sure that my client is happy. I will treat it like it was my own and put my 10 years of experience to work for you!

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

  38. A: Once I get the stems, I start with organization of the trackout I've been sent if it needs labeling. I generally start by mixing the melody of the song, then the drums, then I usually do the vocal last to really sit it down in the mix.

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: I work exclusively with FL Studio 20 as my DAW because of its simplicity, user interface, and smooth running operation that won't burn out my CPU. I work with both plugins and outboard gear creating a hybrid setup. I use a Focusrite 18i20 as my audio interface. I have an ART Pro Channel 2 and a DBX 286s for vocals. I have 4 additional preamps from ART and DBX. I also have a collection of Behringer and DBX compressors. I mix and master with a pair of Shure SRH940 headphones.

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

  42. A: I mostly work in the hip-hop, rap, R&B, and pop genres. They all share similar characteristics nowadays and one of my go-to engineers for these genres is Larry Ohh.

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

  44. A: I mostly do production, Mixing, and mastering. I have more online business, not giving me a chance to record in-person a lot, but I still record from time to time.
