10 SHORT QUESTIONS WITH ALPHAROCK


 

1. What is the best part about being a producer?
- The fact that you’re able to make music that other people listen to in their own free time or when they want to party is actually a very crazy feeling! And I definitely think that’s the best part about being a producer.
 
 
2. How did it all start for you?
- Well it all started like 5 years ago when I was in high school and I needed to make a choice on what I wanted to do with my life and at that time I was really into the house music. And I didn’t really knew what else I really liked. So I decided to take a leap of faith and to become a DJ at first but after a while I realised that I needed to make my own music to become known.
 
 
3. What would you be doing now if it wasn't for music?
- Like I said above I really didn’t knew what I wanted to do and still really don’t know what I would be doing if I didn’t have the music!
 
 
4. Is talent, hard work, or the connections you make the most important factor for being successful?
- I think that hard work is 100% the most important factor because it needs hard work to use your talent as much as possible and get the maximum out of it. And it needs hard work to keep you network up to date and do effort to meet new people!

 
 
5. When do you usually make music?
- Whenever I feel like it. Most of the times when I come home I directly go to my laptop and play the track I’m working on a few times and if I come up with some good ideas I start working on it again!
 
 
6. What is your favorite synthesizer? Which one do you use most in your productions?
- Hmm I think it’s a combination between Sylenth1 and Massive because they both have a really own sound and the possibilities are endless with the both of them. So it really depends on what kind of sound I want and then I’ll try to get it out of one of them.
 
 
7. Do you work on mastering/mixing by yourself? Favorite Compressor/ Limiter/Maximizer?

- I do all the mixing myself and most of the times I let the label do the mastering. The reason I do that is because I think it's good to have a fresh pair of ears listening to my track.
My mastering chain mostly consists of Fabfilter plugins...Really love the limiter of Fabfilter!
 
 
8. What was the best reaction you've gotten when a fan got to meet you?
- Sometimes fans come up to me and they say that I’m some kind of God. And that is pretty weird for me, because I used to be a big fan of a lot of artists and I would never say something like that to someone haha. But I appreciate all the kind words so much!
 
 
9. How did you discover Vandalism?
- Well I used to be in a producer school and one day I was in the studio with one of my classmates and he was going through a lot of presets with the name Vandalism and they sounded so good! So I needed to have them as well!
 
10. What makes you choose Vandalism over other competitors?
- For the genre I make they simply have the best sounds. It’s so easy for me to grab a Vandalism preset when I start a track to later tweak them in my own way. It’s really nice to have all these basic synths which you can adjust as much as you want!
