Musician of 15+ years, producer with experience composing, recording, producing, mixing and mastering many styles of music. I have a professional-grade home studio in London - originally from California.
I like to make soulful music of any kind - sounds that invoke emotion and "vibe".
In addition to vocal recording, session instrument performance, song composition and arrangement, I will mix and master your music. I use top of the line mixing, mastering, library and effects plugins from Fabfilter, Waves, Softube, Native Instruments, Spitfire Audio, Xfer, Positive Grid and more, in Logic Pro X.

Interview with Alexander Plam
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Tom Misch, Jordan Rakei, FKJ, Andrew Huang, to name a few.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Mostly mixing and mastering things that they've already began working on - occasionally it's doing the entire process with an artist, from fleshing out songwriting, arrangement, composition, then recording, mixing and mastering the track. Those projects I often have a hand in producing instrumentation and doing sound design, whether that's with synths or samples. I occasionally work as a session guitarist in productions.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Nicholas James in LA - I've worked with him a number of times. He's a fantastic producer and composer, and has taught me a lot.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I will communicate clearly, kindly and promptly. I will be sensitive to your requests, yet direct about what I can and cannot do. I will put in my best work as if it was my own music.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I'm never bored... I work on something different every day. Working on styles of music I wouldn't necessarily make myself gives me a fun challenge and allows me to grow as a producer and expand my abilities.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What are your reference tracks?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Give a TON of detail about exactly what you're looking for. Include references. The more detail you give, the better the result.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: MacBook Pro, a pair of good monitors, audio interface, midi keyboard and a Strat.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: In addition to working with clients, I am hoping to put out an EP of my own later this year.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: It's not enough for something to sound good on its own - it has to sound good in context with every other sound in your mix. Enjoyable listening experiences are so dependent on dynamic. Consider how one sound is impacting the rest.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I like to make soulful music of any kind - sounds that invoke emotion and "vibe". I love hard hitting drums, heavy bass and dark, vibey melodies - whether instrumental or with vocals. These days it usually falls into the categories of RnB, Soul and Lo-fi Hip Hop. I also have a sweet-spot for metal, since that's my background.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I've got a pair of Tannoy Reveal studio monitors, Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro's, running out of a Native Instruments audio interface into Logic Pro X on my MacBook Pro 15" w/ Touch Bar. I use a little M-Audio Keystation Mini 32 to get quick ideas down, and then sit down at a Yamaha digital piano for more intricate performances. I have 3 guitars, a Martin Dreadnought acoustic, a 50's prototype Gibson SG w/ P90's, and a custom HSS Strat that I built. I use an Audio-Technica medium diaphragm condenser mic for vocals and instruments, as well as a little portable Røde shotgun condenser mic for foley stuff and quick sampling. As far as software, I use mostly Fabfilter and Waves stuff for mixing and mastering, and Serum is my synth of choice for just about everything. I usually use Spitfire Audio stuff for strings and piano libraries.
