Eli grew up in northern Israel after his parents immigrated from the USA in the 90's. He displayed an interest in music from an early age and at the age of 13 began playing bass guitar in a band with some friends. When he was 15, his band recorded their only studio album of youth "praise and worship" songs and it was then that his interest in recording and audio engineering was piqued.
After finishing his 3 year mandatory military service, Eli went south to Tel-Aviv to study music and audio engineering at the esteemed "Rimon School of Jazz and Contemporary Music". There he learned from some of the best audio engineers the ins and outs of the profession.
Once competing his studies, Eli spent several months interning at one of the largest recording studios in Israel - Bardo Studios - where he honed his skills in recording and mixing.
Soon after finishing his internship Eli moved back north with his young family (wife and two daughters) to take over his fathers studio - Future Vision Studios. It was there that Eli became enamored with mastering and began to experiment. He quickly discovered that he had a knack for it and began to master some independent music. He has since mastered a number of projects to rave reviews from his clients and other engineers.

Interview with Eli Ben-Moshe
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital. The reason is because companies like Waves, UA, AA, Slate and others create outstanding emulations of the best analogue gear. For instance in the digital world I can use a classic LA 2A optical compressor NUMEROUS times in a mix. In the analogue world each unit costs several K$ so most studios don't have more than one or two...
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Judge by their work portfolio and customer service.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Dave Grohl (Nirvana, Foo Fighters) is a particular insparation, both musically and how he has handled his career. I am also inspired by my fellow country man and producer/engineer extraordinaire Yoad Nevo.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I work mostly "in the box" using the best analogue emulation plugins money can buy. This setup helps both maintain a "warm" analogue sound while saving both time and money for my clients.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: I totally get the desire for DIY recording, mixing and mastering, but at the end of the day, 99% of musicians won't get the results they really want unless they work with professional engineers. I'm not saying don't record at home, I'm saying be honest with yourself. If your track isn't sounding the way you REALLY want it to, then turn it over to a pro and let us work our "magic"!
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I like working with artists who know what they want. As soon as an artist knows how they want their music to sound, the engineer can do his job, and not sidegig as a shrink...
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: A lot of people think they can DIY... To some extent that is true, but mixing and mastering are art forms mixed with science. Not everyone can really do it with good sounding results.
