Being an experienced recording, mixing and touring engineer I've learned how to follow the artist's vision and how to be extremely flexible in every situation. I've also learned, through my 20 years of experience, to recognize when I have a pure talent in front of me and give my best to make it shine.
I own a recording studio facility in Greece and a PA rental company. I mainly do recording and mixing for a very wide variety of music genres. I also provide touring engineer services for national acts here in Europe.

I’ve had the chance and pleasure to work with Petros at many levels and on several occasions, both as a performing artist with my band The Rockin’ Dead and as a Festival organizer (ΦantastiCon). His valuable touring engineer skills, PA setup knowledge and quality equipment combined, always bring out an outstanding sound outcome and end result in requiring environments! His deep technical expertise, thorough professionalism and positive attitude make him a key partner on which one can rely no matter the endeavor and so I strongly endorse and recommend him!

I have worked with Petros several times in both live & studio and I’ve always been really satisfied with his professionalism. He is a great sound engineer but also a great musician. He loves analogue sound and his studio has amazing analogue equipment.

Analog mixing at its finest! Experience, knowledge and world class equipment. Petros's skilled engineering can bring any project to a top level. Possitive attitude, outstanding results and overall true professionalism.
I ve recorded my demo at Polyphoniki Studio and i have to admit Petros is a true PRO. He has the skills to reach the best possible result, the studio has specialized equipment and something that really mattered to me as a female vocalist, the studio is sooo clean. Apart from his technical skills he is super fun to work with! Thank you Petros, it's been a blast!
My cooperation with Petros started in 2014 and since then I haven't find someone as knowledgeable as him in sound engineering and music. He will give 120% of himself to get the best possible result. Both his experience and technical skills will help you to overcome yourself and be better.
In Petro's recording studio (very spacious) me and my band managed to find our unique sound. The equipment is amazing, in every way, and you can create music like nowhere else.
I have worked with Petros several times in both live & studio recording conditions and I’ve always been really satisfied with the result. I am happy to have trusted Petros to record my piano compositions. Recording an acoustic piano presents enormous challenges and Petros, thanks to his great experience as a sound engineer and musician, has been the right person to undertake this demanding task. The sound was impeccable, balanced, warm and natural, exactly what I was looking for! Excellent engineer, great person, full of ideas and really hard working. Can’t wait to record again!
Petros is not only a great sound engineer but an experienced musician as well! Being both has helped him become a truly professional in his field, who can be efficient and flexible at the same time. He is able to understand the needs of a musician, provide technical solutions and present interesting ideas. I have collaborated with him many times in the past and experienced his talents in the field of both performance and sound recording! I have recorded many piano pieces in his natural piano at his studio and the result was excellent. I highly recommend him to anyone who is interested in high
Absolutely professional, with a first class hardware in his studio.

It is also highly equiped with , among others, a classical piano, a range of mics, and an analogue mixer. Last but not least, Petros is a great professional and person to work with, offering his valuable advice whenever needed.

Combining great equipmet with excelent technical skills, years of experience and, most importantly, a super kind and helpfull personality, he WILL get the best possible performance out of you and he WILL help you find your "sound".
My first recording was like my first love !! Unforgettable ! Petros was gentle, guiding and patient. I brought my favorite gear (cymbals and snare) and he handled them with utmost respect. That tells ME, a lot about an awesome professional. Thanks for the experience!
Great engineer and great guy! Whenever I've recorded drums with Petros, the results are always superb and he has a unique ability to capture the drum sound I have in my head with minimal effort!
Also, the studio drum kit he uses is one of my favourites (the always spot-on Yamaha Recording Custom)!
I recently met Petros and I am very happy that I found at last the right guy to collaborate for my projects :-) Petros has a very deep knowledge of the sound engineering technical aspects, in addition has remarkable artistic taste in a variety of musical genres, so he is very helpful in all stages of musical production, from arrangement to the final mastering. Last but not least has a very gentle personality, sessions with Petros are always in very good mood, helping musicians to give their best!
Petros Petropoulos is a highly skilled audio technician and an exquisite collaborator. I'd trust his ears with ... my eyes closed!
I started recording at Petros' studio back in 2013. Since then , all my recordings and music projects have his sign and his "magic touch". A very talented and experienced sound engineer who has a deep knowledge in the art of recording, mixing and mastering. If you "work" your music projects together with Petros it is extremely difficult to work with another sound engineer. 5 stars are not enough to rate him :)
I trust Petro as a mixing Engineer in the studio as well as in concerts. He can really deal with my complicated projects. Including wide variety of music genres.
I've worked with Petros a lot of times in the past and i was always satisfied. Very good knowledge and Engineer skills combined with class A equipment.
