Mixing, Guitars & Sound Design

Alex von Oppenbach on SoundBetter

I´m a musician and audio creative and my most essential tools are my ears. No matter the job - I listen first.

I am a guitarist, mixer and sound designer from Cologne, Germany. Since I was a kid I was obsessed with sound and music, what led to a vivid and consistent musical education, both on piano and guitar. Beneath just playing music I also started to record music and experiment with sound tweaking as a teenager. Since then I´ve attended a lot of workshops and classes to constantly develop my qualities as a musician and audio creative.

In the last years I started two musical projects, mixed and mastered three albums and a lot of single songs, played instruments in different productions, did sound design and composition for a short film and played concerts on a regular basis.

I worked for and with: Parsnip Fields, Richard Schumacher, Straight Vibe Records, plusma, Vida Afsari Rad, Jens Köhler, Raw Suppliers Beat Collective, Virtual Day and more.

My main services are mixing, mastering, guitar tracks(electric and classical), piano/key tracks, composition and sound design. I can also offer saxophone tracks and custom beats.
