I am a mixing and mastering engineer from Canada, working with international artists.

From my father's home studio as a kid...

In a way I could end it here, as this is what it's always been about for me. Inventing, coloring sound, and the crucial steps that follow before releasing something out into the world.

But along the way I also got to work in incredible recording studios in both England and Canada, and have had the chance to experiment with the different aspects of music production through the years. I am constantly refining my recording, editing, processing, balancing and polishing skills and techniques. Studio work has become my profession, with mixing and mastering becoming my areas of expertise and focus.

I have a Bachelor degree in Digital Musics and Electroacoustics from the University of Montreal, with a year in Music Technology at De Montfort University in England. In the UK, I also worked as a research assistant in 3D sound engineering. I then taught the Acoustics and Aesthetics of Music classes at Recording Arts Canada for two years.

Recent highlights:

-Iram's album that I mixed and mastered got featured on Rolling Stone: India
-Black Givre, which I co-engineered, won in 2014 the GAMIQ for best experimental album.
-Ibero-Amerique was featured in Le Journal La Presse, following the recordings we made together.
-Folks & Pines, which I produce, mix and master, has been featured on numerous music blogs and art magazines

    Alex mastered a song we recorded with my band, and he added the perfect amount of energy, intention and colors, all of that in no time ! If you want a (musically) comprehensive and qualified sound guy to master your tracks, ask Alex Rights !

    Love working with Alex. He's been my mastering engineer for more than 2 years now. I produce electronic music and he knows how to make it to the industry standard.

Interview with Alex Rights

What questions do you ask prospective clients?
I often want to know the story behind the song and for them to name me an artist that they like.
What do you like most about your job?
The passion.
If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A Focusrite RED interface, a Neve 33609, Eiosis' AIR EQ, my studio monitors, and a guitar.
Can you share one music production tip?
Simply listen with fresh ears: They're the best gear.
What's your typical work process?
When mixing, I balance all the instruments together. I stay far away from the ''solo'' button!
What's your strongest skill?
I know frequencies!
What do you bring to a song?
I always listen to a song and identify what I can do to it in order to like it better.
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
Remote mixing and mastering, for international artists, is what I do most from my studio in Montreal.
