Nikos Pavlou, the "Porcupine" on SoundBetter

Sound engineer based in Manchester UK. Originally from Athens, Greece. Owner of a Bachelor degree in the Science of Sound Engineering. Working actively since 2007 as a freelancer live or studio sound engineer.

I've worked with many artists, most of them live. I believe that sound engineers should work with any artist (under any occasion) in the best possible way. That's why I tend to maintain my professionalism but also add a more personal feeling in my artist-sound engineer relation. Anyone has to feel cozy and familiar with a new partner, and especially when that is the key to bring out the greatest potential!

So, for anything you need remember to ask freely!

Also a list of some live console brands and models I have used on live gigs or in a studio: MIDAS (Heritage 3000), SoundCraft (GB2), Allen & Heath (GL2200, GL2400, ZED436), Yamaha (M7CL48, LS9, 01V96), Mackie (8 Bus), Dynacord (PowerMate 1000), and many more, I can't really recall at the moment.

    I recorded the music for the theatrical play I directed in February at Nikos' studio. He is absolutely professional,eager to find solutions to the problems you meet and I am absolutely satisfied from the final project.Considering the difficulty of the organs (greek traditional music),he showed great comfort in handling different sounds.Thanx,man !!

    We are working with Nikos for about a year, and he is our sound engineer in our live gigs. We are completely satisfied and we trust him 1000%. He is doing a great job with our live and monitoring sound. And he is also a great guy. Work with him if you want to get proper services for your music.
