I have been a mixing engineer and producer for over 10 years with a deep passion for electronic music. My magic is created on a hybrid analogue/digital setup, demonstrating a strong preference for the sonic character of outboard gear, and combining this with surgical tools in the digital domain.
I will mix, master and produce your productions with the utmost perfection possible. Every project is unique in its own way and I tend to take the time to envision what the artist is truly after. At the end of the day, my solemn promise is to make sure you are happy with the results, no matter how much time it takes to do overdubs, editing, and so forth. Compromise is not a word in my vocabulary, well perhaps with the exception of this paragraph. :)
Through many years of working with producers and artists from around the globe, I have gained focus is in electronic music (House/Techno/Electronica) but I have worked on countless Rock, Pop, and Hip-hop projects as well. I am confident I can achieve the sound you are after for your record.
Would love to hear from you.

I recommend working with Syrus! He is very experienced, communicates quickly and fully applies his musical talents to your project. Would use him again!
Syrus is a very knowledgeable mixer, producer and mentor who has help me uplift my productions. I love the enthusiasm with which he performs his job and the exceptional skills that he possesses. He flawlessly mixed/mastered several EPs for me just recently. I was going for a specific sound in my mixes. I wanted the low end to hit hard, but wanted the remaining song to be out front and present and
Syrus has a phenomenal ear for detail, delivering revisions quickly and accurately. He has an amazing ability to bring clarity and space to your mixes. The technique he employs with analog equipment bring warmth and precision to the mix (rare today). His ability and experience speaks for itself in an extremely high quality product and service.
Interview with Syrus Bagheri
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I work out of a few studios in vancouver (case dependant), but do most of the detail work from own studio. I have a hybrid system running Pro Tools HD and sum through a summing mixer with Apogee Symphony converters. I utilize a variety of outboard gear, Chandler Curve Bender, Neve 1073s, 1176s, and Avalon 737SP's to name a few. I generally use plugins from UAD, Massey, Waves, Sound Toys, Brainworx, and Avid. If it sounds good, I use it.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I would take the "or" out of this question and swap it with "and". I love the sound of analog. There is just so much character. I also love the infinite resources available to me in the box. Some things are best done in the analog domain, like summing for instance. The real question is what's best for the project?
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been producing music since I was 15 years old and studied Professional Recording Arts at the Art Institute of Vancouver. Since then I have worked at various recording studios in Vancouver, as well as, worked on hundreds of projects, including ghostwriting for several artists and productions of my own.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I have worked on all sorts of music, from Jazz to Dubstep. My main focus, however, is electronic music, which can be a somewhat demanding genre; it has to optimised for the club, retain clarity, while still sound decent on small systems! Although challenging, once you understand the laws of physics behind it (particularly for managing low frequencies which hold the most energy), it's fairly straight forward.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: My promise to my clients is to make ensure their music sounds the best it possibly can, without compromise.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I get to take long coffee breaks... Actually no, I truly love working with music in anyway possible.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: My ears.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: The most common type of work I do is mix deconstruction and reconstruction. I spend anywhere from 4 hours to 2 days on a given mix, depending on mainly the piece complexity and source quality. I'm very transparent with my work. There is no "secret" in making great sounding tracks, but rather detailed processes acquired through experience. Tools simply help ease the process.
