    Alex is a professional in every sense of the word, from his punctuality, to his down to earth vibe and his open minded creative nature makes him one of the best if not the best Ukrainian sound Engineer right now in the music industry. From his knowledge of mic set up (witch is crucial for any recording) to his extended knowledge on analog and digital consoles (not to mention he knows how to operate a Neeve Console like no one! ) Alex really separates himself from the rest it’s been true pleasure working with him.

Interview with Alex J Kramer

  1. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  2. A: - Kramer, is Eddie your grandpa? - who is Eddy?)))))

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

  4. A: Yip :)

  5. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  6. A: Analog(console) because I like the idea of mixing together analog signals instead of 0 and 1 ITB. All that digital stuff is good enough for any situation but for my ears it's still far away from analog sound.

  7. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  8. A: I'll do my best!

  9. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  10. A: Ahahahahaha I think that they will not help me to save my ass so I don't need any for that situation. ;)

  11. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  12. A: 10+ years

  13. Q: How would you describe your style?

  14. A: Bright and Punchy

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

  16. A: Deftones, Chick Corea, Dream Theatre, Eminem, Limp Bizkit, Muse, Metallica, RHCP, the National, also withsome of the newest Hip-Hop/RnB stuff. I don't know why but I think it would be interesting to work with them.

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

  18. A: Sure! I use automation instead of compression for creating right macro dynamic of each song.

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

  20. A: Pop, Rock, Jazz.

  21. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  22. A: Psychology

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

  24. A: Life and vibes. :)

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

  26. A: Usually I start from finding the right balance by using only faders and pan knobs and when it works the best possible way I start to eq and compress each instrument but only when they need to be eq'd and compressed. Right after that I start to use delays, reverbs, modulation for creating extra vibes. And the last thing that I normally do is automation. Normally it takes 4-8 hours for each song from the console setup to the final mix.

  27. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  28. A: I use 48-channel Neve VR Legend analog console with Flying Faders. Monitors: - Genelec 1238A - Yamaha NS10 Studio -Auratone 5c. Converters: - Apogee Symphony 56 ch. analog I/O - API A2D. DAW: - Pro Tools Ultimate Mix bus compressors: - API 2500 - SSL G-bus. Outboard: - 2 x Empirical Labs Distressors - Shadow Hills Vandergraph - UA 1176 - 2 x dbx 160 XT - a few 500-series modules like an API 550a, API 525 and Pultec EQP-1A - Lexicon 300 - Universal Audio Apollo 16 as my external delay/modulation rack. Other: - Waves Mercury Bundle - UAD all plugins bundle - Steven Slate Trigger 2

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

  30. A: Andy Wallace, Chris Lord.

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

  32. A: Mixing! Mixing! Mixing! :)
