Its not the Gear its the Ear on SoundBetter

Hi everyone. I am a Singer, Songwriter, Producer from Greece. I have been providing music to T.V. series, releasing albums and performing for more than 20 years If you are looking to mix and master your track or need a full pack of Vocals , then you have come to the right place. I would love to help you get the best results for your music.

-Regarding Mixing and mastering:

Once you send me your track I will send you a sample of your song in 24 hours just to get an idea of how your song will sound like.
My goal is to make the best out of your raw tracks and highlight your music's character. I want you to have a smile on your face every time you listen to your track.
I am confident to say I can make any properly recorded track to sound on a radio - commercial level and also sound great to any sound device.
Reference track would be appreciated.

-Regarding Vocals.

Looking for a deep, warm, emotional voice to make your track stand out? Do you like David Bowie 's kind of voice?? Mark Lanegan? Maybe Leonard Cohen?Well.....here you are! Send me your song with raw vocals or an instrument that states the vocal line. Also the lyrics. It does not have to be top quality. Just to get an idea of the melody you are looking for.
If you do not have an idea of the lead vocal I will work with the melody and send a preview.

So regarding your project:
-I will record lead vocals , harmonies, ad-libs ,whispers (if needed) and any kind of vocal idea that sounds suitable.
-They will be edited, tuned,mixed and ready to use unless specified otherwise.
-Also I will work around the vocal line
-Im a mixing engineer so you ll receive mix ready crisp stems.
Looking forward for your next project.

    I gave my song to Nikotrip ( electronic down tempo ). The guitars i had recorded were really noisy and vocals were recorded from a low quality microphone so i didnt had high expectations on the result. He made my song sound like i actually went to a studio and paid for a proper recording. Really good mixing and mastering also.

  40. A: Once I was invited to play guitar at a venue with a nine people band which included cello violin,drums and a lot of other instruments.. It was a complitely inapropriate venue for live performances. No sound design. It was supposed to be a theater but it felt more like an abandoned parking lot. Also it had flouded the night before. The sound was awful there beyond any imagination.The sound engineer of the venue could not be more careless so I decided to bring my gear and set up the sound from scratch. I told the sound guy not to touch anything on the console.Just enjoy the gig I removed all the bad travelling frequences that bounced in the venue. I had to do a lot of work to get the sound right. Compression, masking of instruments e.t.c Eventually we could not believe how good the sound was during the concert and how succesfull it was despite the last nights flood and that night's heavy rain.

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

  42. A: I can't find one
