Interview with Kyle Reynolds Productions

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

  2. A: Moved to San Diego in 2008, played in local bands, and served as the band producer, mixing and mastering on multiple projects. Completely self-taught, and been working producing music for almost 15 years.

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

  4. A: Any artist that is passionate about their music and is writing with themselves in mind first and foremost. You can't fake authenticity, and it's most important that you are inspired by what you are writing. I want to help your vision come to life.

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

  6. A: Have a great reference track. Knowledge of the sonics you are trying to achieve is a great place to start.

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

  8. A: I'd say pop, rock, indie rock, and singer-songwriter are my strengths. Though, Ive worked on hiphop, and am open to lending my ears to other genres as well.

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

  10. A: My ears, communications skills, and work ethic. I've recorded as a musician in pro-level million dollar studios with all the bells and whistles, but none of that matters unless the mixer and engineer is putting their all into the final product. My work isn't finished until my client is happy.

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

  12. A: Musicians: love bands of the 90s, Nirvana, Radiohead, Smashing Pumpkins, as well as classic rock like The Beatles. Production Professionals: Steve Albini, though I play much more in the digital realm than he does, love his drum sounds, George Martin

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

  14. A: Some audio editing, mixing and remixing as well as mastering of audio. My job isn't done until my clients are 100% satisfied and I've achieved their artistic vision.

  15. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  16. A: I mix in the box, so I live in the digital realm, though I use outboard compressors, enhancers, and preamps. A lot of the analog "warmth" can be achieved in the digital realm nowadays.

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

  18. A: I promise that I will give my all to their project, until they are 100% satisfied with my work.

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

  20. A: I like that it challenges both the analytical, technical, side of my brain, as well as the creative and artistic side.

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

  22. A: Who are your influences? Any great references? What's your time-table? What's your vision for the final product (a single you can release on Spotify, a four song ep released on vinyl, etc.)

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

  24. A: Have a clear vision of what you are trying to do with your music. Is it an ep, a single, a full length album. Make sure you are inspired by the songs themselves, and ensure the source material recordings are of the highest quality possible.

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

  26. A: My computer, an acoustic guitar, microphone, midi keyboard, and my monitors. Basically any producers starter kit.

  27. Q: How would you describe your style?

  28. A: I'm a laid back individual, but when it comes to mixing and mastering, I am very meticulous, and won't rest until I've given the project I'm working on my all.

  29. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  30. A: My ear for details. Its the little things that make all the difference in the mix, and once all those little things are added up, you have a great end result.

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

  32. A: First step would be a nice discussion with my client about their vision and artistic references. From there I'd review tracks and make sure I have good recordings to work with. I don't mind some audio editing, but the more time I can spend jumping in and mixing, the better. From there, I'd have consistent check-in and updates as I move forward.

  33. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  34. A: Started on Apple products, so Logic is my DAW of choice. Mostly an in the box setup, with amazing plugins, although I have nice external preamps.
