Hi, I'm Aaron. I make records. I've been doing this for the past 7 years. I love working with music that pushes boundaries. I like weird sounds!
Mainly working out of Australia's premier studio Sing Sing Recording Studio, where I have my own mix room. I've been able to work with artists such as The Avalanches, British India, Ceres, Amanda Palmer, G-Eazy and X Factor, as well as a whole host of others.
I love mixing, I love taking a tracks parts and bringing it all together to sound amazing.
I love guitars and drums.
I believe working together on a mix is important, I want to understand how you're hearing it in your head and make that a reality.

Interview with Aaron Dobos
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: The latest Ceres album "Drag It Down On You". I recorded and Mixed it. The songs are amazing and I think that all the sonics of that record really bring life to what the songs were about.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: either, depends on the production and workflow.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: you'll love it
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: All of it
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Its easy and that the hours are good.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have been doing this for 7ish years. I started as an Assistant and then Engineer/Mixer at Sing Sing Recording Studios in Melbourne and have gone from there.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I try to just make the song speak for itself, i want the song to grab my attention and make me interested, so whatever it is i have to do to make that happen.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Paul McCartney, because he's a genius and the man doesnt stop.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: why be cool when you can be awesome
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Generally music with guitars, be it Indie , Emo, Folk, Punk. But I try and do all sorts of genres, it keeps me on my toes and everything informs everything else.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Bringing the good bits out of songs and making it punch but still feel warm.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: When mixing i want to hear the rough mix so I know what you've been hearing. I want to get a vibe for the song, move with it and see what is the most important part in each section, is it the vocal, the bass, the guitars. I want to make sure thats the part that leads in those sections. Then I press play on the session and go.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My personal studio is running protools, I've got Barefoot Monitors, NS-10s. A bunch of vintage and new outboard such as; Retro 176, 1176s, Distressors, AKG Bx20 Spring, Smart C1, and a other pieces. I also have a lot of cool guitar pedals and other random toys that also work their way into mixes. I also have access to various large format consoles at Sing Sing Studios for an additional fee.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I love John Congleton's style of production, the way he can take a sound and twist it but still make it seem real inspires me.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I like to make the sounds people hear in their heads come to life, whether thats a recording some weird fucked up guitar sound or a beautiful violin, i want to get it out of your head and make something new.
