Petros Gailas on SoundBetter

Looking for a mixing engineer who doesn't settle for anything less than perfection with Unlimited Free Revisions? Look no further than my online mixing services! With over 20 years of experience in the industry, I've worked with a wide range of artists and producers across different genres and styles of music.

I take a unique approach to mixing, seeing it as an overall production process rather than just a technical task. I'm not satisfied until you're 100% happy with the results, which means I'm willing to put in the extra time and effort to make sure every detail is just right.

My hybrid or digital mixing setup allows me to blend the best of both worlds, using Pro Tools as my main DAW and incorporating analog equipment like a Neve preamp/EQ, LA2A tube compressor, and 1176 analog compressor to give your music warmth, depth, and character.

I pride myself on my quick turnaround times and excellent communication skills, and I'm always happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have throughout the process. Whether you're looking to re-amp a guitar, re-record vocals, or add some distortion to your bass, I'm here to help you achieve the best possible sound for your music.

Don't settle for anything less than the best - choose my online mixing services and take your music to the next level!

    I would like to thank Petros for his excellent job working with me in the preproduction, recording, editing and mixing of numerous tracks included in my published CDs but most important for being an esteemed member of the highly skilled sound engineers involved in the production of "Alexander The Great" Rock Opera, produced by the National Theatre of Northern Greece! -Cοnstantine Athirides

Interview with Petros Gailas

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: Recording a symphonic orchestra and chorus of 130 people with only 6 microphones (cause of a lack). This was a live concert at St. Stephen's Basilica church in Budapest/Hungary. You can listen to a sample of Mozart's Confutatis on my list tracks.

  3. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  4. A: Maor Appelbaum

  5. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  6. A: I just finished the drum recording for the band Aliens In The Church.

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: First of all, I believe that the best way is the Hybrid but I prefer analog as about the sound quality that analog gear brings into the mix. For example, an analog compressor keeps the vocal clean without destroying frequencies even if you pushit hard. An analog console like the one that I am using, gives me an analog saturation, punchy sound on drums, wide stereo field on the general mix, and analog EQs. But, is not possible to accomplish the best results without the digital world. For example, an Active EQ plugin like my McDSP AE400 can cut the hi-hat from my snare channel which is hard to do this in the analog world. Also, I can create several different FX in two minutes. And last but not least I can trigger drum sounds with my Slate Trigger2 plugin. So I believe the combination of both worlds is the best for today's productions.

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

  10. A: That I will do anything that is possible to get the best results for their music according to the editing, reproduction, mixing, and mastering in order to be 100% satisfied!

  11. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  12. A: To turn a recording to an awesome production that serves the artist and the song!

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

  14. A: How do you want me to send the song? I like one set of files wet and dry and the current bounce you've been listening to.

  15. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  16. A: It's hard to make a bad recording sound like a great mix. So, in that case, I will rerecord guitars, bass, and trigger the drums if needed for better results but of course if the band agrees with that. But I always try to be upfront with people what I can actually do with the source material provided.

  17. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  18. A: I like to know what DAW your song is currently in. Also, if you're not sending a session, I ask for the files wet and dry so I can hear what you've been hearing. Also what they want to achieve with their music plus a reference track/band that they believe their music is more close to it.

  19. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  20. A: Find someone that you believe he is gonna bring out the best result and feeling for your music.

  21. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  22. A: MacBook Pro, Sound Card, U87, Neve 1073 and an LA2A.

  23. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  24. A: I started at the age of 5 to play guitar and when I was 11 I had my own band and gigs to play. I started to record my own compositions at the age of 16 on a 4 channel tape-recorded and a Roland Sound Canvas midi synth soundcard. From that moment I'm falling in love with production.

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  26. A: Love for music.

  27. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  28. A: Muse, Alter Bridge, Five Finger Death Punch. They are incredible musicians with incredible compositions.

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

  30. A: The rhythm section to be glued/locked together for all the instruments and to serve the vocals and the main intro melody. Anyway, if there is no groove, there is no music!

  31. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  32. A: rock, hard rock, heavy rock, pop, instrumental, jazz, acoustic, classical

  33. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  34. A: The balance of frequencies.

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

  36. A: The excitement, the feeling that is needed, all the instruments to glue together in order to make you want to listen to it again.

  37. Q: What's your typical work process?

  38. A: Spread the multitrack channels to my console and correct phase issues. Then I am trying to find the balance of any instrument and listen very carefully about what is needed for the song. Listen to it several times helps me to know what kind of feeling I have to give on my mix in order to help the song to step out. Then I am checking the harmonies in case if something does not sound right and then start mixing.

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: I am using a Soundcraft console with a lot of analog compressors like 1176s, LA2As and so on. I am using also plugins but most for fix problems so my mixes are like 70% analog and 30% digital.

  41. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  42. A: I listen to a lot of music, I am composing, I'm also a guitarist, I like to play live with bands and I preferred rock/hard rock. I love the way of work of Chris Lord Alge and I follow all of his works.

  43. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  44. A: I usually make editing (various kind of editing), mixing and mastering songs
