Mixing engineer for hire. Get your production ready for release in under a week.
I am a norwegian student doing a degree in Music Business - Production at INN, Innland Norway University. Over the last couple of years I mastered music theory and instrument arrangement. Now I specialize in post production.
If you are looking for someone who could clean up your session for you and mix it from start to finish, you are lucky to have found me. I do editing, comping, time alignment and vocal tuning. My favorite DAWs are Pro Tools and Logic Pro X, but I could work in Ableton Live if there is a need for that.

3 ReviewsEndorse Vlad Kolpak
This is the most hardworking human Ive ever come across. He's willpower and drive is beyond what you would ever expect from anyone. Vlad is extremely goal-oriented and has never turned down any challenge. He does this without it effecting his overall mood which might be Vlad's most important skill, he is just an overall great guy to hang out in the studio with. I'm a singer and an artist and I highly recommend everyone looking for a recording engineer and mixer to contact him. I consider him as a great friend and nothing less then a brilliant musician!
Vlad is a very dedicated producer who is really easy and fun to work with. He's great at recording and mixing vocals, and has a great ear for details in instrumentation. When working with him in the studio, he always motivates and spreads positivity, while still being able to remain professional and focused. I would definitrly recommend working with him!
Check out this guy, everyone! He is extremely hard-working, will often sit up the whole night just mixing and mixing... I've heard a lot of his work, and it is quite impressive and very well-rounded. Recommended 5/5!
Interview with Vlad Kolpak
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I prefer working digitally since it is the most flexible alternative. It is easier to load a saved session instead of having to patch outboard gear every time you need to make some changes to the project.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I will do my best no matter how much effort is needed to satisfy my client.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: My favorite part of working on a project is comparing the before and after.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I need to know what my client expects of me. Most people define mixing differently, so one should discuss client needs and goals before collaborating.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: The easiest way to find out if you really need me is to get in touch with me.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I always start by prepping the session. Every type of edit, fine-tuning and time alignment should be done before mixing begins. Then I go back and forth, doing small changes to the elements until I am done.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: My current projects consist of doing sound design for a film clip, as well as creating an EDM-track I will use for future collaboration.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Teletronix LA-2A, PSP MasterComp, Maag Audio EQ4, ValhallaRoom and a coffee machine.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Refined stereo field.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Synth pop, acoustic covers & EDM production.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I work mostly in the box, digitally. My setup is quite flexible in order to be able to collaborate with others while traveling. Occasionally I use outboard gear and mixing consoles at our school. UA Teletronix LA-2A and SSL AWS900 are my absolute favorites.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Andrew Scheps and Dave Pensado are my favorites. Although, I have got several other idols, such as Jack Antonoff and Greg Wells.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I am often asked to do mixes for others. Apart from that, I spend my time producing for artists that I work with.
