Leo Josefsson on SoundBetter

I'm a Producer based in Stockholm, Sweden. I specialize in producing, mixing and mastering pop, electronic pop, dance music and traditional rock. My passion for analogue and vintage synths combined with my rack of analogue outboard has become a part of my trademark.

I'm the first to admit that it’s amazing what you can do in the digital world (with plugins and standalone software), but it’s when you combine the digital world with the analogue domain that the true magic happens.

For inquiries or more information, don't hesitate to contact me.
I'm looking forward to get my hands on your music!

Best

    Ive been working with Leo for the last couple of years.
    All I can say that he is a super talented engineer and producer.
    He works fast, accurately and stays right on time.

    For me as an artist this makes live super easy.
    As long as I have everything in order I know that Leo will keep the deadline.
    Leo is not afraid to use his freedom as an engineer to come with creative ideas as well.

    So in short.
    He’s fast, Has great gear, Fairly priced and is creative.

    What more do you need?

    Leo did an outstanding job on co-producing, mixing down, and mastering my track "Rumors".

    He was a pleasure to work with and produced amazing results. I couldn't be happier with how my track sounds now and it has given me the confidence boost I needed in my music.

    I look forward to working with him again, he is a real professional and top bloke!

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

  18. A: In the mixning process I start by listening to the song a few times and focus on the strengths of the composition and arrangement and try to get an early idea of what the song needs in terms of dynamics and what the listener should focus on. Technically I bring all tracks and stems into Pro Tools, Then I put the SSL channelstrip on all channels and create a first balanced mix, busprocessng and gainstaging. Then it’s time to get out of the box and step into the analogue domain and get the track ready for mastering. I'm the first to admit that it’s amazing what you can do in the digital world (with plugins and standalone software), but it’s when you combine the digital world with the analogue domain that the true magic happens.
