My work has been featured on top Spotify Playlists and for artists with over 1 million streams globally.
I have been involved in recording, engineering, and production since an early age, interning and working at local recording studios in Atlanta such as Zac Recording and 800 East Studios.
I have recorded and mixed hundreds of songs covering a wide variety of genres from Pop and Rock to Jazz and Classical.
I currently run my own company that offers high quality mixing, mastering, and editing services.
I am very flexible and can work within most budgets and time frames.

Alex helped mix my A Capella group's album and did some really amazing work balancing both sound and texture of the multiple voices. He really knows exactly how to craft the sound he's looking for, and was open to critique and suggestions whilst simultaneously achieving a very specific vision. I would reccomend him to anyone recording or mixing an album.
Alexander produced a professional quality mix for The Telescreens. We gave him a recording that was laking life going into the mix, Alex gave the song exactly what it needed in order to really reach its true potential. He was punctual and a pleasure to work with. I would defiantly recommend Alex and plan on using him again in the future.
Interview with Alexander Bean
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: ...Why pay to have someone mix a song you recorded when you can just do it yourself? Why is the role of a mixer even necessary in this day and age where mixing "in the box" has become so efficient with DAWs and plugins that can be used to achieve virtually any sound you desire? That I am a vestigial role from a past era of music. ... While you may be able to create and bounce a "mix" of your song, having someone like me with another set of ears, a different approach, and years of experience can make all the difference in your music's ability to stand out from the competition. I will make your song sonically clear and focused so that it is listenable on any playback system (from your iPhone speaker to the club speakers) and ready for any application (TV, film, video games, commercials, etc...). And for those early in their career, my mix could mean all the difference between a someone in the industry skipping over your song due to its poor production quality or giving it the time of day it deserves because it sounds clean, full, and professional sonically. Doesn't the music you spent so much time and effort writing and recording deserve to be presented properly? I allow your music the freedom to stand on its own without judgment from those who would rather comment on the poor quality of your track instead of praising its musical content. After all, as an artist, isn't it all about the music? Why let anything get in the way of your amazing work manifesting the way you envisioned it?
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Tom DeLonge because his vision, imagination, and lust for life inspire me endlessly.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Don't trust all the fancy software. Trust simple tools and your gut.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Rock and Pop.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Clarity. Period. I strive to make all of my work sound neat, punchy, and full, but I want to make sure that each element occupies its own space and builds off one another.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: First and foremost, clarity. I want to ensure that every detail shines and stands out the way that the artist envisioned it. I know how difficult it is when you are done tracking a song and you think it's lost its magic. I bring that magic back by making sure all of the elements that you worked so hard on are placed in the song at just the right level and occupy just the right space.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I like to familiarize myself with a rough mix that is sent. Come up with my own ideas about where things should go, and then start my mix from the ground up. I usually turn around projects very quickly and like to stay in constant communication with my clients to ensure their happiness!
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a pair of Yamaha NS-10 speakers, and two sets of bass heavy powered monitors for extra reference such as JBL and Halfer. I run a Pro Tools 12 rig, but also support Logic Pro X and Studio one.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Chris and Tom Lord-Alge Tom DeLonge Butch Vig Ryan Hewitt Rob Cavallo Billie Joe Armstrong Travis Barker Eddie Kramer Jerry Finn
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Mixing and Mastering
