Elias Chrysochos on SoundBetter

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 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!

    I am a frequent repeat customer for Elias. I am still learning guitar, but am not letting that stop me from finishing songs to show my friends. Elias puts a very subtle yet very powerful touch on my recordings that prevents me from wasting time second guessing myself. On to making more memories with sound!

    Elias took on a tough job (editing a doubled guitar track) and did an incredible job of syncing up each take. He has a great ear and great judgement, and I know I can count on him to always do an excellent job.

    Another job, another unbelievably good end result. Elias pushed through another challenging no-click(!) drum editing job and nailed it once again. Elias has top-shelf talent and drive and he will use it to make your project sound incredible. Can't wait to work with him again!!

    I hired Elias to do some no-click drum editing for me, a difficult task in it's own right made even more difficult by the fact that I sent him a drum take of me jamming free form and occasionally changing tempos. I was stunned by how good the end result was - the drums were still groovy and natural but completely smooth and in time. Elias was also incredibly nice, attentive, and humble despite being ridiculously talented. If you need something edited, HIRE ELIAS - it's a no-brainer!

    Elias always does an excellent job comping and quantizing drums for me. The edits are seamless, and the final comp always has a great feel, never sounding robotic.

    Elias was brilliant to work with. Very professional and so helpful. Communication was clear. He made sure exactly what I wanted before proceeding to work on my track. My new track which I received back from Elias very quickly (within 2 days) was faultless. Exactly what I wanted. Crystal clear audio too. If you need any audio files editing Elias is your man.

    Great job with time alignment and tuning vocals. Was conscious of keeping things natural and receptive to my feedback. Best part was that he did an additional revision on his own. It did take a little while for the delivery but delivered within the allotted time frame. Thanks my man.

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 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.
