This was my second experience with Eray to mix and master a song. Again, his work was great as the previous time. He is accurate, professional and patient. It was very easy to communicate with him and he did his best to meet the various requests that I had. In the end, the sound of my song was transformed with more clarity, quality and balance. Would definitely collaborate with him again :) Thank you very much Eray!
I was using SoundBetter for the first time and I came across Eray's profile. I immediately felt identified by the sonority of the track he had on his page. Now I know I made the right choice for my mixing and mastering. Eray is an excellent professional, very patient and kind. I felt comfortable to exchange with him during the whole process and he understood my ideas easily. Will definitely collaborate with him again in the future. Thank you Eray :)
Eray is a super talented mastering engineer. He mastered my two singles. The thing that caught my attention was his dedication and creativity working together. Projects always ordinate and on time
I have worked with Eray as a mastering engineer for years, he is very dedicated and punctual. Working with him on various genres, I realize that he has very good ears and he knows his gear very well. He never leaves my work unattended and brings my mixed to life.
I worked with Eray on one of my song's editing and mixing project. He took a deep interest in it on every step from editing to my revisions. We're working on my new song's mixing now. He has an endless energy and i love it!
he has very shiny top level analog mastering gears. every track that i ve mixed steps up after his mastering. It is always a real pleasure working with him. Highly recommended.
Eray produced and mixed my first album "karmakader". He is a trustworthy sound engineer, with sharp ears and very positive energy. He is a hard worker who surprises you with the accuracy of his musical approach. As an artist, I am able to say that he understands and puts his creativity to satisfy your demand and never let you down. Amazing guy :)
I've been producing and co-producing for more than 8 years now and I have outsourced around 20 tracks to Eray in a 2-year span for mix and mastering. Not once he failed to meet my expectations nor the artist's. He puts his creativity and know-how in every song and is always ready to go the extra mile as if it's his name on the cover.
