Christos Stylianides on SoundBetter

Having spent hours of hard work have enabled me to listen to almost every little detail that take a song from good to radio ready. Immediate communication in every step of the way to assure everything goes to the right direction. My job ends when you are 100% satisfied.

I am a Recording-Mixing Engineer, Music Producer and Songwriter. I am dedicated to music and very creative when it comes to music production. I strive to produce high quality mixes by analysing the work of the artists that I work with, help them bring their ideas to life and spot new areas for improvement.

    Another successfully completed job with Christos. Mix was already sounding great so it was pure fun to work my magic on it. As usual, communication, which is key for me, was great and everything i needed was provided beforehand. Very enjoyable gig ! Thanks Christos !

    Christos gave me a strong mix. He knew what he wanted for the master and communicated it clearly. Can't ask for much more than that!

Interview with Christos Stylianides

  1. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  2. A: That I pay attention to every little detail, I will guide them and work collaboratively to make their song shine.

  3. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  4. A: Listen to as many of their samples you can find. Bring the best quality recording possible.

  5. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  6. A: Which artists do they aim to sound alike either as a whole or specifically for each instrument.

  7. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  8. A: It enables me create something unique every day and I get a lot of satisfaction when people get enthusiastic while listening to my work.

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

  10. A: When creating a loop song from a progression that you want to achieve a nice and creative build-up, add as many instruments/sounds you need in a 2/4 bar progression and loop that for 3 minutes or so. Then start subtracting instruments during verses while reserving some for pre-chorus or other important sections. Keep in mind choruses can be arranged differently each time.

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

  12. A: I listen to the recorded track a few times and try to understand what is the edge of the song and what requires more particular attention. Then I do all the necessary editing, noise clean-up and fixing timing issues. I’ll start mixing the drums, bass, lead vocals (or instrument), guitars, keyboards, FX (instruments of less important role in the track). My favourite tool to start mixing is EQ as I use it to reserve room for each instrument to be heard in the mix. I will listen to the track from different perspectives including laptop speakers, car stereo etc. Once I finish the first mix I’d like to have a list of comments from my client with the good and bad elements. After discussing those, we work together until the end result is close enough to perfection!

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

  14. A: Mac, audio interface, guitar, bass and monitors.

  21. Q: What's your strongest skill?
