Interview with Davion Knight

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

  2. A: While I attended college I got to work on a pop record called War. In which I was the mixer and was graded on the rubrics of a professional mix.

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

  14. A: That mixing is easy and that there is no structure to it.

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

  16. A: What is the vision that you have as to how you want your mix to sound once it is completed? Do you possess every single audio file that makes up the entire session?

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