2 ReviewsEndorse Baran Goksu
I have been in collaboration with Baran since the day we met (7 years) - both on stage and in the studio; and can safely say that he will excel at any task within a live, recording or mixing environment. He has mixed my album and various singles to their fullest potential, and I have seen him perform to the same standard in many other projects in countless recording scenarios and various styles and live shows including several massive festivals under pressure. He has fantastic ears for mixing and a great understanding of arrangement. Can mix perfectly in the box and work wonders in the studio!
One of the best ears in Istanbul. Passionate companion to every process you’ll need through a music production; recording, mixig, co-producing and even vocal coaching. He’s chief engineer at, Erekli-Tunç Studios -one of Istanbul’s most acclaimed and great equipped studios. Whether In the box or on analog domain Baran will wisely fullfill your needs to a great sounding music.
