Having mixed, mastered & produced electronic music for artists from all over the globe, I bring to you my decade long experience in the world of electronic music. Having been previously running the Eagle I Stallian account on SoundBetter with over 46 reviews (all 5 stars), I've decided to start my own profile.
As an electronic producer, mixing and mastering engineer, I've toured the Asian market and have released music which has landed support by A listers such as Above & Beyond, Myon & Shane 54, Sander Van Doorn, Roger Shah, The Glitch Mob and more. My music has been featured on high end publications such as DJ Mag, EDM.com, Dancing Astronauts and more. I've also had sync placements on MTV and the Givenchy Fall 2018 campaign.
My focus here on SoundBetter is to provide my clients with professional mixing and mastering services. It's my mission to make sure my clients are highly satisfied with their production.
It's very important to make sure we communicate clearly before the start of the project. This will allow me to deliver what you need. I usually ask my mixing clients to send me their individual stems in WAV format, 24bit & 44100 Hz.
Turn around on a mixing & mastering project is about 5 to 7 days depending on current projects in the pipeline.

4 ReviewsEndorse Varti Deuchoghlian
Having worked with Varti on a number of projects this last year, his ability to bring ideas from a demo,pre production phase to a finish track with world class production is second to none. His control with sub bass and effects really give his productions a special quaility.
Varti is an amazing producer. I was lucky to work with him on my first instrumental solo album, and he guided me through every step of the process. From helping me find my sound to giving me valuable advice on the business side of things. Highly recommend!
A pleasure to work with!
I have sung on a few of Varti's tracks for his Electronic duo "Eagle I Stallian" and they have always taken the vocal recordings to a new production and mixing standard. The amount of vocal processing knowledge I have gained from Varti's professional mixes and productions have helped me understand how to better hone my craft as an Artist and as a newcomer producer!
It's always an amazing experience and a learning process when working with Varti. When I first started producing tracks, my levels were all over the place like most young producers. Varti thought me how to prepare a mix for mastering and how to hone in on my craft as a producer. I always work with Varti for Mastering and mixing my final output tracks. Great to work with, always listens to what you want and takes all the steps to make sure you get your sound.
Interview with Varti Deuchoghlian
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: The biggest misconception would be the idea that a mixing engineer can make you sound exactly like another producer. This is a misconception you see in producers that are just starting out. It takes years of production effort to reach at the level most new artists aspire to be. What a mixing engineer does to help in the process is to balance out the spectrum of the track and make it sound as best as it can. Often the foundation needs to be strong and that comes with years of experience producing music.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: While producing, I've realized having a proper reference to compare to is always important. Hearing how the kick and bass are sitting in the mix then comparing it to your track gives a good benchmark. This often makes you a better producer and mixer over time.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I usually work on all genres of electronic music mainly house. I've done some pop, hip hop & jazz as well.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: First, I make sure I understand what my clients need and then I explain to them what I will provide. Communication and clarity is key. I'm always open to revisions as I'm a firm believer that the client will be the one with the song at the end and I want to make sure they're fully satisfied with my work. Usual lead times vary between 5-7days for mixing and mastering but as for production, it usually takes a bit longer based on the project.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: A project I've been really proud of was my involvement with Eagle I Stallian. It allowed me to produce great pieces of work, release them on big labels and also tour internationally mainly in the Asian market. It allowed me to work with Rafi, my partner in Eagle I Stallian, to share ideas and learn from each other in the studio and during performances.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm working on several original productions and some work for hires for other artists as well.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: I'm sure there are a lot of great providers on SoundBetter I simply don't know them personally.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I'm more new school therefore more digital, in the box. I do have fun with the occasional analog gear such as the Culture Vulture or the Moog Sub37. It definitely adds a great element when you work with analog gear.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: My 'promise' to me clients is to make sure they receive a professional service making sure all their concerns are answered throughout the process.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love taking a track and making it sound as good as it can be. You get to kick back and relax and enjoy the track afterwards.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: The most common question is the lead time. It always depends but it's usually 5 - 7 days for mixing and mastering. Usually a bit longer for production work mainly due to more revisions needed in general.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I always ask my prospective clients the reference on what they are aiming for. I try to understand their background and what they're trying to achieve to provide them a better service.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: The most important advice I would give would be to make sure to properly communicate what you're looking for. Have a reference track and provide it to the mixing engineer. It's very important to do so as it helps the engineer better understand your vision on the track.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: MacBook Pro with Live 10, Apogee Duet, Beyer Dynamics DT770 Pro, Zoom H4N Pro to record nature sounds, Moog Sub37

A: My strongest skills would be mixing and mastering as well as sound design as a producer.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: What I bring to a song is the years of experience I have in the electronic music industry. I know what the standard references are and what labels are usually looking for. With all this in mind, I work on pleasing the client and setting them on track for a successful release.
