    This was my first time getting something mixed/mastered and I'm so glad I went with Alex!! Right from the very first draft, he took my very vague minimal notes and turned the song into exactly how I have been hearing it in my head. He is responsive, kind and delivers really high-quality work. I'll be sending my next song ASAP!

    Alex was my first "online" colleague I have ever worked with and was also the best choice as he never complained about the amount of my notes :D I provided on every version of our track. He provides unlimited revisions which is essential for my feeling of a safe place for my songs! We created a great sounding piece of music together!

    Added a different dimension to the song with his input. I couldn't be happier with the finished product.

    Due to my indecision, Alex made 2 final versions for me to pick from, and I couldn't go wrong with either!

    Another incredible job from Alex.
    We're now at our tenth song with Alex, with styles moving from pop-rock to hip-hop to jazzy arrangements or more experimental pop and each time Alex is able to make the songs sound voluminous, bright and heavy, with a cohesive sound through the bodies of work.
    We're super happy and will continue to work with him !

    Alex has been an absolute pleasure to work with! He works so fast, has a great ear for mixing and technical skills to match. Ended up with exactly what I was hoping for from the final mix, with minimal revisions needed for a top notch end product 🙌

Interview with dontaskalex

  1. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  8. A: My style is simplistic and straight forward.

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

  10. A: I would love to work with Post Malone because he just seems like a chill dude to hang out and to work with.

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

  12. A: Give it time and try to spread out your sessions over multiple days or weeks. Sometimes you just like an idea because you heard it too often in a row.

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

  14. A: I am working on lofi, indie pop, pop and chillout music. But i am really open to every kind of genre.

  16. A: Understanding the clients idea.

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

  18. A: I bring a lot of experiences from mixing and mastering hundreds of songs. Sometimes my own, sometimes working with other singers and sometimes for complete strangers. I think i can understand the ideas of other people pretty well and i can translate them into the song.

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

  20. A: There is no typical work process for me, its different everytime and thats the reason why its never getting boring.

  21. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  24. A: I'm working on an album with a singer and i am also producing my own songs.

  25. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  26. A: There is another mixing and mastering engineer called Fred who does really good work.

  27. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  28. A: Digital, because a lot of digital plugins have algorithms implemented designed to reimagine analog tools, for example reverbs and delays.

  32. A: Its possible from everywhere and with everyone

  34. A: How should you prepare your pre-master: make sure it has some headroom about -6dB

  35. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  36. A: Even though mastering and mixing is pretty technical it has a creative component to it.

  37. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  38. A: Where do you want to publish your track and what sound should be accomplished.

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

  40. A: I am focusing on mastering single tracks, or tracks within a bigger project, for example an EP or LP. I am also doing mixing services, so there is the possibility to combine both services into one order.

  41. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  42. A: I am working on a Desktop PC with two KRK 8 ROKIT G3 Speakers and DT770 Pro Headphones. The DAW i use is FL Studio 20. I invested in a few Plugins from Izotope, Youlean and Soundtoys for mastering and mixing purposes.

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

  44. A: I am a big fan of the producer Rick Rubin. I just love his positive energy and the calmness in his approach of making music with different styles.
