Alex Krotz on SoundBetter

I have worked with and learned from the best in the industry, such as Shawn Mendes, Three Days Grace, Billy Talent, Drake, and many more. I have many tricks up my sleeve to make your productions sound tight, big, and professional. I will make your vocals perfectly in tune, and your instruments perfectly in time, without sounding edited!

INSTRUMENT EDITING
I have spent many hours with Pro Tools, and use very meticulous methods to ensure editing is clean and tight, without sounding edited. Guitars, Drums, Bass, Keyboards, anything you need put to the grid.

VOCAL EDITING
I have learned and developed a very natural way of editing vocals, to ensure great tuning and timing, while not sounding edited! I use a various combinations of manual edits, melodyne, autotune, elastic audio and Vocalign in my creative workflow to ensure the best results for your sound.

I only charge $40 per track for any editing.

MIXING
If you need your vocals or guitar, etc mixed into an existing instrumental track, you can send them to me and I will make them fit perfectly! I charge $150 per song for vocal mixing, or $120 if you also use one of my editing services.

If you need your whole song mixed, just send me the multitrack, and I will send it back sounding like perfection! For many years, I have worked on projects alongside the best engineers and mixers in the world, and I know the techniques from the biggest names combined with my own methods and trained ears to ensure the best mix for your song that you and your listeners will love!

$450 per song.

    Alex did a great job editing drums for me. They sound natural, but super tight. Far too many people rush their drum edits and end up with digital artifacts, phase issues and a lot of other problems. Not Alex, he did a great job, good turnaround time, overall good dude!

    Cannot recommend Alex enough!! Very professional and timely. He has a perfect ear for tuning and timing vocals. If you want your projects to stand out, Alex is 100% who you need. He also has a huge credit list. Check out his discography, he’s worked with some of the biggest names in the music industry, so he knows exactly what he’s doing. It was a great experience working with him and I will definitely be returning to him for future projects.

    I’m simply blown away. I needed Alex to deliver on a ridiculously tight deadline and was nervous about the quality I’d receive on such short notice, but Alex wowed me. Not only did he deliver ahead of time, but his work was top-notch, and his communication was excellent. His incredible ears, friendly attitude and impeccable timing mean that he’s already a mainstay for my work moving forward.

    It was an absolute pleasure to work with Alex, he is truly a jack of all trades. From producing to mixing to singing harmonies over my song, he was a lifesaver. With extremely fast turnarounds and generally just a great person to be around and work with, you’ll want Alex in your corner! If you have any project in mind that you would like to see come off the ground, I would highly, highly recommend shooting this man a message. Couldn’t have asked for a better person to work and learn from!

    I’m extremely proud to have Alex on our team. Knew when we spoke had an instinct he would be the one to record Cole’s EP. Surprised me many times with his professional skills & sense.

    Fantastic work on vocals from Alex. Fast, to-the-point, processes tracks actually sounding super-natural - exactly as if they were not processed! Got the final product exactly as we wanted it - and a bit more.
    Strongly recommended.

Interview with Alex Krotz

  1. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  2. A: Alastair Sims

  3. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  4. A: I’ve worked extensively on both analog and in digital, in a lot of hybrid setups but also on tape exclusively. I now find myself in digital due to the flexibility and ease of notes, recalls and travel with projects. If you know what you’re doing, digital sounds amazing and comparable to analog these days, but just easier.

  5. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  6. A: What genre is your song that you’re working on and what is the deadline you need it by.

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

  8. A: I started out recording with a DAW in grade 6, before that only small tap recorders or maximizing voice memo recorders. In high school I built an isolated sound room and control room in my parents basement and opened a studio, I also started interning for a local mid level studio, where I worked my way up to engineer and worked with them fo years. I then went to school for recording, before moving to Toronto and landing a job at my dream studio where I was for over 7 years working my way from runner to house engineer before going freelance in 2018.

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

  10. A: A production is all about the ease of creation and comfort of the artist, I try to bring that to a project whether in person of through the internet, bringing the highest quality work all the time so they don’t have to second guess anything I do.

  11. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  12. A: My strongest skill is in Pro Tools, I have been the Pro Tools operator for many big records and artists, which comes with great urgency in quick workflow. Every time, clients are amazed how quickly I can accomplish what they ask for and nothing phases me, which greatly helps the production process.

  13. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  14. A: I do a lot of work off my laptop out of my apartment or at my office (which I have for other businesses). I also work out of various studios, big and small, when I need to work with clients in person, depending on their budget.

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

  16. A: I tend to do a lot of editing like drum quantizing or vocal tuning & timing. I’m also very good at doing extreme editing on every instrument in a song,while making it sound polished, natural and not sounding manipulated.

  17. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  18. A: David Bendeth, CLA, Max Martin, Matt Squire, Robert Orton, Derick Wibley, Josh Wilber, Gavin Brown, Randy Staub, Gggarth Richardson
