Stella Gotshtein on SoundBetter

Worked with Assaf Amdursky, Eviatar Banai, Eran Tzur and more. Recording & Mixing engineer, producer, and singer-songwriter specializes in folk, rock and alternative.

Hi, my name is Stella,
I'm a recording and mixing engineer and a singer-songwriter based in the vibrant music scene of Tel Aviv.
I've been fortunate to work with some of the local industry's top musicians, including Eviatar Banai and Assaf Amdursky and now I would love to work with musicians around the globe.

I've worked in the plugins department at Waves Audio and In the past 5 years I was the house producer and engineer at a top studio in Tel Aviv.

As a performing artist, I released three albums, performed on international stages, and collaborated with many celebrated musicians including Rockfour, Noam Rotem and more.
I also composed music for dance, film, and theater.

I love analog gear, synthesizers, effects, and all the wonderful sound tools at my disposal. But my greatest love is bringing an artist's vision to life through the power of sound design.

    Stella was willing to help me in every capacity I had hoped for when signing up to the Soundbetter platform. She went above and beyond in her duty of care for my music. For what little it is worth, I highly recommend artists of any genre to touch base with Stella. I am glad I did.

    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.

    Unbelievably professional. I've never really been happy with my own music until Stella made it feel fresh and dynamic. Considering we are in opposite parts of the world, Stella understood my message and gave it a life that it may not have otherwise had. For what little my opinion matters, I definitely recommend Stella to any artist, no matter where in the world you are.

    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: What are you working on at the moment?

  2. A: Very exciting new albums....

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

  4. A: PJ Harvey. Because she is simply the best.

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

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

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

  8. 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.

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

  10. A: My personal unique taste and color.

  11. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  12. 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.

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

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

  15. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  18. 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.

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

  20. A: The freedom of creativity.

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