Music Producer-Mixing Engineer

Tunç Çakır on SoundBetter

I am producer and musician. I have been professionally working with music since 2001. and I have been making electronic music since 2003. I am very interested in rock music and jazz, especially electronic music. I have done hundreds of projects including the producer, arranger, musician and sound designer.

I can produce on your electronic or acoustic music.
I can make arrangement on your music.
I can make sound design on your job.
I can programming synthesizer and drums.
I can deliver on your song like a going to mastering.

I built my studio on my living room. I have analog and digital synthesizer, drum machines and effects units at my studio. I would prefer place the synthesizer patches in a precise frequency range for mix. I collect the synth channels in an analogue mixer and record them on the computer. I complete the mix with analog gears and in the box.

When I was working a new song at my studio, I can not start to work another song until this song is over. Because a lot of equipments are analog. So I can't save this patch presets. It is important that you can e-mail the revisions as fast as possible so that we can work quickly.

For the details, please contact me.

Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.

Interview with Tunç Çakır

  1. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  2. A: Whatever it takes for music. After all, I have both when producing or mixing music. I prefer to use whichever sounds better and whichever is more appropriate. This situation varies a lot according to music or genres.

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

  4. A: Computer-Neumann KH310-My Modular Synthesizers (9U box at least), a discrete rack with 1 transformer - can be one of the Custom Magic Box or 1176, a sequencer like Arturia Beatsetp Pro

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

  6. A: I started by playing the first instrument and concert. Then I started playing recordings in studios. Then I started writing and arranging music myself. After a while, I started recording and mixing myself. Now I spend half my time in synthesizers, electronic music and studio. I have been playing the instrument for 25 years. I have been playing professionally for 20 years. I have been making production and electronic music for 15 years. I have been mixing professionally for 8 years.

  7. Q: How would you describe your style?

  8. A: I like to process sounds, transform them into another sound. In general, I like a strong, tough and in your face style. I love to hear a very big sound. Of course, the music itself always guides me more in my preferences. Even in an acoustic project, I like to use electronic and acoustic sounds together. I love what technology adds to music.

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

  10. A: Respectively, first of all, a beautiful composition, the right tonality, a beautiful rich form, a beautiful arrangement with beautiful harmonies and a correct orchestration, good musicians, good quality and well tuned instruments, good musicians, a correct recording in a beautiful and correct room, correct microphones and the right microphone setups, good cable, the right electricity, a good listening room and listening system, a team that understands and works well, a studio where you feel good and has good equipment, choose good songs, edit and correct them correctly, then go to the mix. should be given. If everything is very good until here, it can progress very well in mixing. Otherwise, if the files you give are bad and have a small sound, it will not be very good when a compressor passes that sound very well.Everything you will do from here on is like making a make-up on the mistake. If the mixing went very well, now it's time for mastering. The fact that it passes very accurately at this stage will determine the fate of the project in the last step. As a result, when we look at the end of the work, in fact, a good job is a result that depends on how correctly all stages are done.
