Interview with Sam Wills

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

  2. A: I will do everything in my power to get the job done to your specification.

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

  4. A: Describe what you want with as much detail as you can from the start, and if you can provide a reference track of something you like and your own self master if you have one. It really helps projects move in the right direction from the outset.

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

  6. A: I started DJing when I was 16, decided in my 20's I wanted to do this full time so went to coallage and then on to university. In my second year I managed to persuade the guys at Wired Masters to take me on as an intern, 6 years later I'm still here.

  7. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  8. A: Im running the PMC MB2/XBD Active Loudspeakers with Bryston Amps & Crossover. A pair of NS10's which are as useful as everyone says thay are! A Weiss DS1 Digital De-esser/Compressor/LimiterWeiss & Weiss EQ1 Duel 7 Band Digital Parametric Equalizer and a Summit Audio EQP-200B EQ. and that's all going through the Prism Opheus. There is a bunch of other stuff but that's the work horse of the studio.

  9. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  10. A: These days digital, the work process is faster and in turn keeps the cost down of projects.

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

  12. A: I listen to new music every day before anyone else (and I get to keep my own hours).

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

  14. A: Compression fixes everything.

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

  16. A: Dont spend your money on £3000 fancy compressors if you have £400 speakers, put as much as you can into getting your room right, your productions will thank you for it.

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

  18. A: House, Techno, Edm, Pop/dance Anything with a beat.

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

  20. A: Whatever was missing in the first place.

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

  22. A: It really depends on the project, but first and foremost listen to the track all the way through, sometimes if you focus on one part of the song to begin with you can miss the point of the whole track.

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

  24. A: Full and stem mastering or stereo masters, plus the odd bit of general advise.
