Music Producer, Mix-Mastering

Vikas Makasare on SoundBetter

I'm a favourite "ghost producer" for many artists.

Tools used for mixing-mastering are Logic Pro X and Harrison consoles mixbus 32c.

Mixing is the step before mastering that involves adjusting and combining individual tracks to form a stereo audio file after mixdown. The stereo file is then mastered, which ensures that the song is polished and form a cohesiveness.

I'm into Music Production. Playing piano since age of 6 made me a well-versed musician. I love to compose, arrange, and produce music, which involves end to end production. Right from scratch to mix-master, I handle it all. I have produced music for various artists around the globe, and for some artists, I have been a ghost producer. And, for myself, I love to produce Hip-Hop/Rap & EDM and released a few of my Rap & EDM renditions on various digital music platforms.

  14. A: how you make a song ? my answer to this is.. Composing : Requires creative efforts Arranging : An arrangement is a musical reconceptualization of a previously composed work. It may differ from the original work by means of re-harmonization, melodic paraphrasing, orchestration, or development of the formal structure. Arranging involves adding compositional techniques, such as new thematic material for introductions, transitions, or modulations, and endings... Arranging is the art of giving an existing melody musical variety.
