chris hodac owner of hoharastudio is musician since 35 years and has been working for many years as recording and mixing engineer.
My main goal is to take your song to the next level where it deserves to be and bring it to life, and I'm not done before YOU´re 100% satisfied.I use a powerful hybrid workstation of analog and digital processing to deliver analog depth and dimension in my mixes while maintaining modern efficiency.Though the gear is secondary to my experience and ears. I've been recording and mixing for over a decade, and the most important skill I've learned is how to listen, to the music and my clients .For local clients or session work, I have recording options to meet any need, ranging from world class recording studios to simpler home setups.
