Hi, my name is Maxim Kokarev, I’m happy to welcome you on the page of my mixing studio.
For over 10 years of working with sound, I have been lucky to collaborate with many remarkable musicians in Russia and out, among which were Pantommind (BG/USA), Mary King (BY), Symprism (UA/USA), and have acquired necessary knowledge of all the nuances of work with music and sounds – from circuitry of devices, basics of music arrangement and psychology of a performer, to the most important “secrets” of mixing and mastering sound.
I took part in a number of mixing contests, among the latest where I’ve got the first prize, were Provocation mixing contest organized by Kiss XL, Andi Vax and Diana Miro (2010) and the local Ola Englund mixing competition (2015).
I also participated in the process of Room Sound Drum Sample Library creation (USA).
I write educating articles for beginners in sound engineering.
Combination of means and methods for analog and digital processing ensures perfect balance of price and quality.
Outboard: fully analog guitar chain (Custom Peavey 5150, Celestion Vintage 30, Shure SM57 + many different stomp boxes) and aggressive analog compressor Alesis 3630 (distressor mod).
In the Box: UAD DSP cards with a variety of UAD Powered plug-ins, etc.
Your music will receive an individual approach, I always consider the vision of the musicians, as well as the reference material you have in mind – if you have one.
