    She gives you the best quality in any way you want possible. She takes time to listen to tracks sent and embellishes her ideas to make the music come alive. Not afraid to give insight to make your songs greater. She is a go to!

    Stella worked with me on a project that I had wanted to try out a couple of different stylistic interpretations on, and she perfectly matched the style of both variations that I requested. Her technique, pitch and harmonization were always flawless. Moreover, her turnaround times were far ahead of expectations.

    Diligent work and very musical taste! Stella made classical instruments and synths sound together like they were always meant to be heard that way.

    I highly recommend Stella!
    Stella was my sound engineer for several projects. She has unique musicality, highly professional attitude and she is a wonderful person to work with. I always consult with her and listen to her advices. Whenever someone asks me for a sound engineer, Stella is always the first name I give.

    I have worked with a lot of engineers in the past and Stella is up there with the best of the best. Efficient, direct, resourceful and was able to embellish the mix from the demo I sent her very well. Like I told her, I'd love to have her mix everything. The voice came out warm and the effects that she likes to use were very similar to what I try to achieve, to begin with. 100% worth it.

Interview with Stella Gotshtein

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

  2. A: Mixing, Recording

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

  4. A: Don't ever settle for something less than mind blowing.

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

  6. A: The freedom of creativity.

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

  8. A: I started with classical training on piano and guitar at an early age. Later I started singing and writing songs, which brought me eventually to production and sound engineering.

  9. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  10. A: Doesn't matter, as long as you know your tools and have a creative workflow.

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

  12. A: PJ Harvey, Quincy jones, Nick Launay, Nick Cave, sylvia massy

  13. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  14. A: I record with 2 Telefunken preamps , 2 API channel strips and an Apogee Ensemble. I have some vintage effects processors like the Lexicon PCM 70, Roland SDE-100 delay, and many pedals. I love working with analog gear when I produce and mix but I mostely combine, depending on the time/budget and purpose.

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

  16. A: My personal unique taste and color.

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

  18. A: I love working with analog gear when I produce and mix but mostly I combine, depending on the time/budget and purpose. When I get a song to mix I always try to get as much information from the artist. About the vision, the references, the personal taste. Than I prepare the mix - arrange, make sure I got everything right, collect some references if I feel like it. I always send a first draft of the mix when I feel that it's in a good place, than when I get the artist feedback I do the fine tuning. I'll say my opinion about everything that I find important, but at the end - it's the artist decision.

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

  20. A: Folk, Pop, Rock, Funk, Electronic, Classical.

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

  24. A: Very exciting new albums....
