I was really nice to work with Alex, he is really talented! I hardly recommend him
Alex was fantastic to work with. I love the sound design ideas he had for the remix. He was both able to put his own creative spins and interesting interpretations on the song, as well as following more specific directions with revisions and adjustments. I would definitely work with Alex again in the future.
Alex is hands down the best man for the job!! Not only did he give back an awesome remix, but did so quickly after the inquiry! His knowledge on drums is through the roof, would recommend to everyone

Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Not Currently.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both, digital can definitely recreate sounds very closely and you can get some really cool effects, but analog and acoustic instruments still have a specific feel and theres always slight inconsistencies that make each instrument/synthesizer sound its own way.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: People think that I'm not a musician because I produce off of a laptop, but they don't know that to produce you need to know more skills, such as sound design, mixing, mastering and on top of that I need to know the fundamentals of music theory.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What Genre do you want me to produce? What feeling do you want me to portray through the music? Do you want Live instruments, if so which ones?
