CAGAN TUNALI on SoundBetter

I Mix, Master, and Engineer for artists like Monality, Oscar and The Wolf, Pilli Bebek, Allen Hulsey, The Away Days, Oceanvs Orientalis, Beduk and many others.

Cagan is a sound engineer who records and mixes albums as well as does FOH engineering for high-profile artists and start-up bands alike, both at local jazz clubs and at major festivals all around the world. But he’s also the founder of Istanbul-based Noiseist Music Production Company. The Noisiest label, which he’s been actively running since 2009, aims to create a sincere and independent environment for alternative musicians, letting them freely express their music and be heard both in the studio and around the world.
Throughout his career, Cagan’s Tunali has recorded/mixed thousands of albums and countless concerts while also producing and supporting various local indie bands. He also teaches at universities and other institutions while giving as many workshops as possible whenever he has time. In this way, he’s been keeping the spirit of rock ’n’ roll alive with a combination of great work and discipline for many years now, though he says this is only the beginning of his journey.

    We had the opportunity to work with Çağan Tunalı. He made the mixing and mastering of one of our songs. We were very satisfied with his work at the end. The result was even better than our expectations.

    Mr Cahan Tunali is one of the most incredible artists in music business today.
    Living on the edge of Europe in the amazing metropole Istanbul he is a true master of arts.
    He represents the modern music producers skills from a very nice recording studio in Cihangir.
    Mr. Tunali is a hardworking music fanatic who brings your mix into unexpected areas.
    Besides that he's a very nice person for small talks and a beer in the evenings.

    I had the opportunity to work with Çağan in the mastering stage of my first solo album ’Belki Sen Belki Ben’ that I recorded and released in 2015. For my new single ‘Kayboldum’ that will be launched nowadays, we worked together in recording, editing, mixing and mastering. And I think we've done a permanent and quality job, especially at the sound point. Among the music people I’ve met and worked until now, he’s among the people that I’ve put at the top of my list with his hard work, positivity, friendship, work completion, patience, humanity and experience. I love him.

    Cagan is really reliable and professional sound engineer.He has self confidence about what he's doing and always uptades himself with his tools, equipments and technology also he likes to share those knowledges during the daily life or in conference halls.

    Çağan is a very talented, very professional mixing and mastering engineer. He will mix and master your songs to industry standarts with ease, he really knows what he is doing. There are very few people in Turkey who has the means, the experience and the vision to make your music shine like him. I really adore his mastering technique, the low end on the tracks he mastered are so perfectly controlled, round and punchy and that is the thing what seperates a semi-pro engineer from an Industry Pro. If you've got a chance to work with him, consider yourself lucky.

    Good and peacefull personality and a hardworker. Always gets your job done asap and thankfully we have one specisific person like him in Turkey. Good listener, analyzer and researcher. Worked in many genres and understands music. Apart from being a succesfull sound engineer, he also plays guitar with great feeling. So thanks to Çağan that he makes mixing&mastering work much easier for musicians!

    I am delighted to work with Cagan since the first day we met(around 2 years).

    Besides his perfectionism and perfect professionalism, he has the real passion for music, mostly these three don't go well together.
    He is very elastic between genres and well knowledged, eager to learn. When it comes to final work, you can feel that all elements suits well.
    Really good sense of compression, grip feeling of low ends, crisp but not sharp high range and control over effects.

    We have been working with Cagan since the beginning of our label Whirling Wolf for the mastering of almost all our releases.

    Professional, good in communications, fast with revisions and always up to date with the latest developments in the field of sound and mastering, Cagan keeps the technical quality of the music we release to the high standards we aim for.

    Cagan is always searching new techniques for recording and mixing. He read everything about music technologies and listen every releases. It's not a job for him, it's becomes a lifestyle for him. He actually enjoy when he was working. I must say he is changing music in his town in in a good way.

    I worked with Çağan on my last EP -mix&mastering-. I find him to be a very talented and dedicated musician and producer, with eclectic taste. He is strikingly up-to-date with global advancements on sound engineering, in-terms of information, equipment and software. Working with Çağan, he was patient, eager to communicate, giving the attention and care every individual song requires. Contrary to many, alongside with his years of experience and many achievements, he is friendly, decent, modest and always spreading positive vibes :)

    Working with Cagan was an enormous pleasure. He’s extraordinarily talented, agile and solution-focused. It makes projects 10x more fun and easy when doing work with a producer his caliber. He’s also incredibly efficient who motivates and excites his associates production-wise.

    Cagan is the pioneer in Turkish indie / electronic scene. He’s the one and only. It’s simply a blessing and a marvellous experience working with him.

    It is always a huge pleasure to be working with Cagan Tunali. His technical capabilities about producing, recording, live mixing is supporting and helping many musicians such as mine for years. Beyond his mixing engineer and producer skills, I believe, his personality is just right for his business. He is not only becoming the engineer or producer of the music he is working on it, he also puts his heart and sincerity into the whole process. Since I had chance to observe him for many years, Tunali always serves the best mix and production to his customers. He is dedicated himself for good music

    While I was looking for the right guy for my first album to record, mix and master and guide me in this equation with multiple variables, Tayfun Polat who is one of the most important music man in Turkey recommended Cagan to me and I found my best-man in my professional musical journey. He knows what he does perfectly, is an expert about sound managing and mixing processes. Also, he is genius about live mixing and this is what makes him stand out from the others. If you’re looking for the guy who is equipped about all producing processes from recording to mastering, it’s Cagan Tunali.
