Mode on SoundBetter

Producer, Audio Engineer, Vocalist and Multi-Instrumentalist.

My name is David UrΕ‘ič. I'm an artist and producer from Slovenia. My music journey started when I was eleven when my uncle borrowed me his guitar. I instantly fell in love with it. Later on, I discovered the world of electronic music and started to learn how to produce music. In 2015, I released my first single Mixed Emotions on π—¨π—»π—Ήπ—Άπ—Ίπ—Άπ˜π—²π—± π—₯π—²π—°π—Όπ—Ώπ—±π˜€ and two EPs independently in 2015 (It’s Not What It Seems) and in 2017 (Years). With my experience in my solo career, I developed my signature sound which stands out from all other modern productions.

Genre is not an obstacle to me. I've worked with rappers, local bands, pop singers, etc.

I still make music for myself and for my band but I also love helping other bands and solo artist to achieve their true potential.

    I like working with Mode because he is very patient when it comes to work with people who are new to this and he is really good at mixing beats..

Interview with Mode

  1. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  2. A: I am working on a debut Album for a band that creates experimental rock music. They are pretty cool and talented.

  3. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  4. A: For recording and getting the sound into the computer gear is very much required. But digital vst's for mixing or creating the modern style of music is all you will ever need. At the end is all what kind of budget you have and what works for you.

  5. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  6. A: That I'm going to offer the best services I can provide. If somehow the relationship just doesn't work I give back full refund and we all go our ways.

  7. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  8. A: I like creative part of it and seeing the customers satisfied and happy with my work.

  9. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  10. A: I'm limited when it comes with bad recordings. There is only so much it can be done if the recordings are noisy and badly recorded. I can clean them up to some point but there is always going to be some quality reduction. Also if you can't sing I can't make you sound like Adele.

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

  12. A: What is their vision for their art. What they want to achieve with it.

  13. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  14. A: Make sure that provider can provide the result you want.

  15. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  16. A: Laptop with Ableton Live, my guitar, small audio interface, SM 57 microphone and that is it.

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

  18. A: I've been doing this for the past 9 years now. I started with playing guitar, then I've got into making electronic dance music. Later on I just keep going on learning and I'm still learning, but now I mostly work with "rock" bands.

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

  20. A: If you have problems on your song in the production stage, try to fix them, don't expect to fix them at the mix stage. Good production makes better mix.

  21. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  22. A: I usually work on rock music with electronic elements. But I don't restrict myself to genres. If the artist is talented and passionate about their music I am more than happy to provide my knowledge to them.

  23. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  24. A: Good communication with clients and providing them with finished work they desire.

  25. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  26. A: I bring my experience as a songwriter but also as a listener. I can bring professional production and songwriting that can make a song, but still not get in the way of the artist vision.

  27. Q: What's your typical work process?

  28. A: It depends on the job. If the job is to mix the song I will ask the client for their vision of the song and then I will send a couple of examples. When creating a full song It's goes the same I listen to clients wishes and then I send them a couple of ideas and they pick the one they like the most.

  29. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  30. A: For my DAWs I use Ableton Live and Reaper. I mainly do everything in my computer. My audio interface is M audio eight track. I have KRK G4 sound monitors and a MIDI Keyboard. I also have one electric guitar and bass guitar.

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

  32. A: I write, produce and mix songs. I help the clients reach the full artistic potential. I also offer other audio related services such as cleaning audio recordings, editing podcasts, mixing.
