Adam Williams/Deamaitch Studio on SoundBetter

Credits include Mopotomus. Specializing in natural sounding recordings (folk, jazz, acoustic rock), and on an affordable budget.

I'm a mixing and mastering engineer. I produced, mixed and mastered "About Time", the debut album of Mopotomus. I specialize in folk, acoustic rock, and jazz (combos and big band) but can do other genres too. I focus on natural sounding recordings but I also let the song be what it is. That's not to say that I can't make it sound like the client wants. I believe as an engineer, it's my job to fetch. Point me in the direction you want, and I'll make it so. I'm also proficient at making "lesser than perfect" production sound better. So if you've recorded an album in your bedroom, which many of us do these days, it can sound like it was recorded in a spacious live room. I also understand that not everyone has thousands of dollars to spend on a song. If you want your material to sound professional and you're on a tight budget, I just may be your guy.

    Adam is a sensitive creative person and mastered my piano based music, adding so much to it. His communication is great and turnaround time was really punctual!

Interview with Adam Williams/Deamaitch Studio

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

  2. A: A while. I wanted to be a mix engineer since I can remember, but never had an opportunity until now because of the advancement in technology making it easier in terms of space and price of equipment.

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

  4. A: First release of Mopotomus. It was my virgin voyage. Producer/engineer, mixing and mastering.

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

  6. A: Tracking for the second release from Mopotomus.

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

  8. A: I don't know anyone on here.

  9. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  10. A: Digital....less physical gear needed (and thus less physical space required), and you can make it sound analog...

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

  12. A: I'll bust my ass trying to get you what you want.

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

  14. A: Love to mix....everything about it, from setting up, to the final print.

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

  16. A: ?

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

  18. A: That it's just getting a balance and that everyone has an ear for it....

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

  20. A: What ever comes to mind at the time. I don't have a checklist....

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

  22. A: Get samples....don't let them start telling you how your work should sound. It's their job to fetch.

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

  24. A: laptop, interface, headphones, a trackpad, and a boat.

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  26. A: Easy. I'm raring to go, but easy to get along with.

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

  28. A: Anyone. I'm not picky.

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

  30. A: Try not to overproduce. Keep it simple, and let the song lead the way.

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

  32. A: Rock, acoustic, jazz, big band, whatever I can get my hands on.

  33. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  34. A: Listening. It has to be. Whether it's to the song, or to the client, if you don't listen, you're not going to get the results they're expecting...

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

  36. A: What ever the client wants me to bring. It's my job to fetch.

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

  38. A: I like to listen to the song the entire time I'm setting up the session routing. That way by the time I'm ready to mix, I know what's coming and what to do, how to treat it.

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: Not a lot of high end pieces. You don't need millions of dollars in mics and gear to get a good sound anymore. You just don't. You don't really need it to get an "analog" sound either. It's all obtainable within a budget now. It's amazing really....

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

  42. A: Omar Hakim, Chic Corea, Dave Weckl, Michel Camilo, Wood Brothers, Bela Fleck, Al Schmitt, Andrew Sheps, Tom Lorde Alge
