    Aly is an incredibly talented, professional and patient creative. He quickly and efficiently eased any concerns regarding each draft created and produced a beautiful bed of music for my song to be held by. I am incredibly grateful.
    Respect

    Aly is hands down the best producer I have ever worked with. He is dedicated and willing to grind on a project, yet is super creative and always down to try a new sound or approach. He has a great ear for mixes and I highly recommend to anyone looking to bring their track/EP to the next level.

    Aly has put his all into every project we've worked on together. As a producer, he was a huge part of helping me to develop my sound as an RnB artist. I don't have the most technical background, but he's been great at translating my perspective into mixing/engineering terms to give me more control over the mixing process. He doesn't stop until we get somewhere perfect. His level of skill and passion for music is hard to find in someone so fun and approachable. I really could not recommend Aly more highly!

    My guy! Aly’s passion for music is hard to rival. He’s a self-taught jack of all trades who gives your music the same love and attention to detail as he does his own. Producing, engineering (or anything you need); he has the talent and the work ethic take your songs to the next level. And he can RAP 👀 YOU SHOULD BOOK NOW WHILE YOU STILL CAN

    starstarstarstarstar

    Aly is a beast - no question about that. I've seen him develop as a rapper and producer over the last 4 years, and he can handle any project you throw at him. His enthusiasm and passion for music make him an insane production force. He's not creating basic tracks either - they are layered, complex, and full of fresh ideas that anyone would be happy to have for their own music. If you need someone that's super dope to help out with your music, then Aly is your dude!

    Aly’s hard-working and passionate and it shows through what he’ll do for your music! He’s detail-oriented and won’t stop until he gets it right. I’d give him 6 stars if I could!

    There are few you’ll find out there with more drive or attention to detail than Aly. His passion for the music is infectious and makes the collaborative experience with him inspiring. Highly recommended.

    DUDE IS A MONSTER!! I’m mad picky when it comes to artist and this dude exceeds expectations from his flow, lyrics, and just overall creativity! Dude has been on of my favorite artists and that’s weighing up against the heavyweight in the game right now! Shit you not! 🔥🔥

    Sent Aly some stems for a track and I must say he exceeded my expectations. He got the song back to me in a timely manner and the attention to detail was incredible. I asked him to take complete creative control and he honestly blew me away. His rates are affordable and it looks like he can pretty much do whatever any artist might need done with their track(s). I’ve already began recommending him to other artists.

    I’ve been a listener of Aly’s music for some time now. He reminds me of Russ, in where his music production and musical talent sets himself apart from others, very professional & very talented.

    Aly puts his heart into every project that he works on. He works quickly and efficiently and is a great communicator throughout the process. Aly mixes his artistry with technical knowledge to create products that are authentic and precise. In my experience, everything he touches is better because he was involved.

  14. Review by Charlie Hackemer
    starstarstarstarstar

    Aly really gets the job done in a timely manner without compromising quality. He completely dedicates himself to the projects that he works on, and he has a good ear for grooves that just feel right. Aly has been fun to work with because he likes to bounce ideas back and forth while really listening to what other people are interested in pursuing within a project or track.

    Got the opportunity to send some stems over to Aly and got a couple of tracks mixed and can honestly say his attention to detail as well as the overall sound was incredible. He has a great musical ear and will turn your tracks into full on productions. I will definitely be continuing to use his services and I highly recommend him to anyone in search of an Engineer or Producer!!!

Interview with Aly Lakhani

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: I just dropped an album called 'Sweets.' It's made up of 12 30-second songs and they're all very different and diverse. For that project I produced, mixed, mastered, wrote, recorded, and performed everything. Really proud of that one.

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: My own music and SoundBetter projects. I'm also getting my commercial pilot license (in the midst of the epidemic!), so that's fun.

  5. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  6. A: If you need musicians, use Ben Pleasant for guitar, Charlie Hackemer for bass, Theo Kandel for vocals, Emmet Haden for horns/keys, and Noah Luna for drums.

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: Digital, we have emulations now! (Sorry, Mike Dean)

  9. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  10. A: The most common question I've gotten from customers is about my turnaround time. Usually I can turn around the first draft in about two days. From there we work until you're happy, however long that takes.

  11. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  12. A: That you need to just be good at one part of the process.

  13. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  14. A: How can I help? What do you need? What do you want this to sound like?

  15. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  16. A: Try to have all your files ready before you take on the project so we can turn it around as fast as possible. Whether that's vocals or beat stems, the more you can give us to work with the more we can do for you!

  17. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  18. A: Honestly, I'd bring my current setup and trade my last piece of gear for an unlimited supply of chocolate chip cookies.

  19. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  20. A: I started off as a pre-med student at Vanderbilt, and over time I found that

  21. Q: How would you describe your style?

  22. A: I pride myself on diversity in sound. I've made things that range from sounding like Drake to Mumford and Sons!

  23. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  24. A: Russ, his approach to music and business is incredible and something I want to emulate in my own career.

  25. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  26. A: Make room for your 808's!

  27. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  28. A: I love taking a song from start to finish, producing a full beat around a song, then mixing and mastering it is my favorite thing to do.

  29. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  30. A: I think my taste is the biggest thing I bring. Plenty of people are able to mix songs, but its taste and adaptability that make me the best option.

  31. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  32. A: My interface is an Apollo Twin Duo, my monitors are Adam Audio T7V's, and my microphone is an AKG C414.

  33. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  34. A: We're not done until you're happy.

  35. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  36. A: Helping others to elevate their creative visions, and of course, doing what I love every day.

  37. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  38. A: Hip-Hop and R&B

  39. Q: What's your typical work process?

  40. A: Typically I'll spend a lot of time with client songs just listening before I begin. I like to try to have as deep of an understanding as possible about the project I'm stepping into, and spending time with the music helps that. From there, I make notes about thethings I'm hearing that I could alter to enhance the vision of the artist. Once I've got my list of notes, I'll go through as many drafts as necessary to make sure my clients are happy!

  41. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  42. A: Alex Tumay, Mike Dean, Timbaland, Monte Booker, all incredible.

  43. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  44. A: One of the biggest things I love about SoundBetter, is the ability to help somebody finish their music to the highest level possible. My skill-set is diverse, so I'm able to offer help in nearly any stage of the process. Oftentimes, I'll mix and master songs to put the final polish on them. However, I'm just as comfortable building an entire track around a pre-recorded studio recording or voice-memo. Just happy to help.
