I had the pleasure of working with Igor on the drums for my 3 songs. In a short time he did a wonderful job.
Highly recommended, I'll work with him for the next projects. Thanks again Igor :)
Igor is a professional sound engineer. We worked together many times and the result was awesome.
Igor have mixed several our tracks. The result is perfect. Professional approach and a good experience. Drumset, vocal, guitrar - anything will sound like recoreded in a famous studio. I strongly recommend.
A great musician and arranger! Recommend!

A: First I imports the files into my DAW (REAPER), cleans up the edits, tunes the vocals, quantizes and replaces/adds drum samples where necessary. When the song is all in time and in tune. In a band mixing - I will start with the drums. The drums need to sound amazing. Then I mix in the bass, followed by guitars. I have a good library of samples and loops (Cinesamples, Spitfire, East West etc.), and I can add to my taste. In the end I go to vocal, background vocals and ambients.
