Hi there! I am a sound engineer, music producer, audio editor, performer, arranger. I have my own studio "ППШ records" based in Riga.

I often record, mix, edit and master different stuff, most preferably rock music with live instruments with minimal presence of samples (however I often resample live drums). Also I have experience mixing live gigs, I regularly work as a live sound engineer in the biggest Riga's hard rock and metal club "Melna Piektdiena". I seek for individual clients and bands, who need to mix, edit and/or arrange their own material. Broadcasting, soundtracks, etc. I am highly qualified in audio editing - I can manually edit every material to grid, from live drums to guitars, including manual vocal pitch editing. Production is also one of directions of my activity - I can fully arrange a musical composition, fulfilling song with live guitars, bass and drums and midi-vst effects, if needed. You can check my works at my soundcloud profile.
