Alex MacKay on SoundBetter

I'm a music producer and artist from Berkeley, CA. I've produced for myself and others for over ten years, in both DIY settings and large-scale studios. My specializations are mixing, songwriting and vocal production.

I have studio experience in both studio and DIY settings - I worked for two years at NYU as a production assistant, assisting the students and troubleshooting signal flow and mixing board issues. These days I have a home studio in Queens with a drum kit where I can do 10-channel tracking and mixing.

I'm proficient with Logic, ProTools, Ableton Live, and Izotope RX7 repair software; I'm familiar with analog and digital mixing workflows and I have experience with cassette and reel-to-reel recording.

In 2017 I worked at Mophonics, a music house for commercial licensing and sync, where I wrote and pitched custom bespoke pieces of instrumental music to working briefs and synced to picture, for clients including Target, Playstation, Ford, and Ken Burns’ The Vietnam War.

I often work in music technology and multimedia, and last year I oversaw all audio for the augmented reality David Bowie Is iOS app that released in January 2019.

I've written on, recorded, and produced over 10 records since 2015, including releases by Cutouts and Jae Luna, and I have extensive experience as a studio musician (vocals, guitar, bass, drums) and bandleader. In January I graduated magna cum laude from NYU Tisch's Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music.
