I am a music engineer, composer, producer from Russia. As a music engineer, I best work with electronic music with a cinematheque sound. My own sound is uniquely built around electronic music, piano, voice, and sampling. I bring emotion and personality into my work. Look no further.
I work from my studio and have produced, mixed a lot of music since 2002.
I can be your mixing engineer, sound designer (creating VSTi presets and FX), and sometimes a mastering engineer and lyricist.
I primarily work on Cubase 11 plus Neutron 3 Advanced for mixing and Ozone 9 Advanced for mastering.
As for sound design, my go to synths are Zebra 2, Retrologue 2, and Padshop 2.
Vocal tuning is done through Steinberg VariAudio.
I am a trained musician and an engineer who worked in different studios. Also, I used to play live electronic music with acoustic instruments.
Being educated in languages and philosophy, I write unusual and piercing lyrics. Normally, I create words around the vocal melody that is already in a song. However, I'm not limited to that and can do things from scratch. Here is one example of my text https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CVG-JWBTYPc
During my musical path, I have played gigs with electronic musicians and orchestra, and a rock band; written lyrics for musicians and vocalists; mixed electronic, dance, pop, and rock music; edited and mastered radio shows and podcasts; designed sounds for synths; etc.
You will definitely enjoy working with me.
