Guitarist | Audio Engineer

Damir Puh on SoundBetter

Award-winning guitarist, engineer, songwriter and producer. World-class guitar tracks and mixing services at affordable rates without compromising quality.

As a musician with 15+ years of experience, I've released original music both as a solo artist as well as being a guitar player and producer in a full band format. My latest band - Station: Innermost is set to release the new EP, featuring Derek Sherinian (ex-Dream Theater, Kiss, Billy Idol, Alice Cooper).

I've also mixed, mastered and produced local and international bands, working on projects in every musical style and format, collaborating with artists from a garage to a world-class level.

As a guitar player, I participated in several high-profile guitar competitions, where I was being chosen as a winner or one of the top picks (Guitar Idol top-8 finalist, Six String Theory "rock guitar" winner, Live4Guitar online competition winner). The list of judges on some of the competitions comprised of well-respected industry names such as Steve Lukather, Joe Bonamassa, Joe Satriani, Guthrie Govan, and many others.

I can offer services like:

- electric and acoustic guitar tracks for any kind of project
- mixing and mastering
- custom sound design and sound effects
- editing

As an artist myself, I understand that the way you deal with other people in this creative field is just as important as the work itself. Feel free to ask me any questions, so we can dig in and make some aural magic as soon as possible! :)

Interview with Damir Puh

  1. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  2. A: "What makes you the perfect choice for the job?" - Great ear, attention to detail, vision, experience and gear. I'm extremely dedicated and passionate about music and I treat every project like my own. As an artist who's releasing and performing music internationally on a regular basis, I know exactly what it takes. "Do you cover other musical styles besides rock?" - Yes! I've successfully worked on many projects outside rock music, including classical, reggae, edm, jingles, soundtracks, etc... Every project you're about to send my way probably won't be the first for me in that style or category. "Why are you so cheap?" - By keeping my expenses down. I live in Skopje, where the cost of living is lower than the Europe average so I can keep my rates down as well. I also own the real-estate where my studio is, so no rent expenses as well.

  3. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  4. A: Hybrid! Mixing in the box is the present and the future, but recording a big, fat signal through a couple of good hardware pieces helps a lot. I like tubes & transformers to capture sounds, bits to manipulate it.

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

  6. A: That they'll leave my studio (or online...space?) completely satisfied. 100%. No exceptions.

  7. Q: How would you describe your style?

  8. A: Punchy, smooth, lots of character.

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

  10. A: Do it right at every stage of the production. No "fix it later" mentality. Take your time, do it right, commit to the sound and move on.

  11. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  12. A: Having a clear and strong musical vision, the ability to hear & see the final result before it's done and the patience and work ethic to do whatever it takes to get there.

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

  14. A: Depends on the project I'm doing. I'm equally comfortable with both the creative and the technical side.
