Meticulous and accurate editing/comping/quantizing/tuning on Pro-Tools 12
Former in-house editor at Soundscape Studios before relocating to London.
Comping/Editing is the essential step that lies between the Recording and Mixing stages of a track. It can involve a light polish or major reconstructive surgery and I love working in either case!
Comping involves using the best takes for each part and 'compiling' them with the other best takes to get the best version possible. This compilation is then merged and fine-tuned using various Editing techniques (crossfading/cropping/copying/tuning/shifting/quantizing/gain+-/de-breathing/de-essing etc.) to bring the final result.
I work from Pop all the way till Metal and have a particular love for drum editing with Elastic Audio (although leaving everything to EA is not always the best approach).
As a multi-instrumentalist and through my understanding of music theory, I appreciate the fine-points behind rhythms/melodies and what the player was trying to achieve during the recording. This is extremely helpful when dealing with full band editing sessions.
I can also hold back on 'robotic' editing depending on what is suitable and what the artists' tastes/visions are for the track.
Please feel free to get in touch with any questions. I look forward to working with you!

Excellent No-Nonsense quality work, very musical! - Great experience!!!!!!
It's been an absolute pleasure working with Elias on a debut album project featuring some high profile musicians. His editing skills are of the highest quality and he pays meticulous attention to detail which really has made a huge difference to the overall standard of the production. All his work is carried out with a sympathetic ear for the music. Great communication thoughout the project. I look forward to working with Elias again on future tracks and albums.
Elias has a magical touch when it comes to editing. He knows what it takes to make a track sound professional and radio ready.
Did a meticulous editing job for us on very short notice. Really made a fingerpicked guitar sound more in time while still feeling human.

Elias is a professional musician and he knows what he wants. But most importantly, he can communicate what he is after, which makes working with him a breeze. I would work with him again any time.
Elias did a great job editing my album "If I Fall". He has also helped with many other edits of different covers and live sessions I have done. He is very fast, professional and cooperative. I would definitely recommend him :)
Elias proved to be a highly skilled and professional editor when we (Waterblack) recorded our EP at Soundscape Studios in 2016. We highly recommend Elias' editing skills and we would definitely chose to work with him him again in the future.
