Emrah Celik on SoundBetter

Hey there! I am an audio engineer from Sweden, 2X nominated (2014-2021), and won the award in 2021 as "audio engineer of the year" in L.Heroes Sweden. I am also a certificated mixer by Grammy-winning Andrew Scheps, Greg Wells, and John Paterno. With my 24 years of experience in audio engineering, I will make sure that you receive a masterpiece.

I am an officially registered Apple Masters provider engineer and in the Apple Itunes Provider List and have been producing, mixing, and mastering music for years. I'm an expert, especially on the EDM genre. A mixing engineer simply cannot deliver a masterpiece on multiple genres. I strongly believe that engineers should also have their own genre of mixing and mastering like doctors have expertise on the specific parts of the human body :D. You can't simply deliver a great EDM track if you used to mix, master rock, country, metal, etc genres. Or vice versa.

EDM is not an easy topic. Most mix engineers who mix multiple genres have issues delivering "club-ready" songs as they mostly focus on "radio-ready" mixes. My focus is only on computer-based music. Also, a mix engineer is not often a club DJ who can test their mixing jobs on a real club system on the fly in front of 100s of people. I have been dj'ing since 1997 and I know exactly how an EDM track should sound on festivals, on nightclubs. So if you are looking for an engineer who is focused on EDM and has all the experience he needs to deliver "club/festival-ready" tracks then you are looking for the right profile. Feel free to contact me. I will help you to have that magic on your EDM tracks...

Contact me through the green button above and let's get to work.

    Emrah was incredibly flexible and easy to work with. Not only did he master my song, but he also gave feedback on my mix beforehand and had some amazing suggestions and practicly re-mixed it again. He has completely exceeded all my expectations!! I can’t wait to work with him again!!! Thank youuuuu!!!

    What more can I say about Emrah-? another successful project with him at the helm this year

    I think he is a clairvoyant engineer-every track I've sent him has been treated with incredible technical precision, deep musical understanding and artistic touch.

    He gets me the sonic results Im after with each track, but also unlocks new dimensions within them. Amazed by his skill, dedication and results: he is a true master and we're lucky to have him around!

    Working with Emrah was a real pleasure. He knows both the electronic genre and his craft meticulously and works like a real professional from start to finish. He's highly communicative at every step letting you know what exactly is happening and why. And he's just as adept when it comes to listening and taking onboard feedback.

    It would be extremely difficult to find someone who truly cares about treating your work properly as much as Emrah. I look forward to bringing him in on future projects!

    This time I asked Emrah that I wanna get warm, clear and solid mastering. He replied "Here is the mastered version which on this type of tracks pushing to limiters is not good for it's motion and soul, so I kept it as competitive loudness with smoother response with huge dynamic."
    Yes~He understood exactly what I want.
    It was fantastic worked with him again. Truly recommend!!

    For the first time ever I heard one of my songs in a professional way, that is thanks to Emrah. How he managed to mix the many different layers in my song to something consistent, that was amazing. For me audio mixing is a question of taking decisions and it's clear Emrah has a lot of talent in doing that. So I don't have think twice to recommend Emrah to anyone!

    Just finished my second project with Emrah- he is a master and magician! Every mix has turned out fully realized: precise and technically perfected- yet always serving to unlock the actual music. He is like a great conductor of an orchestra- finding the emotion , heart and story of each track and delivering it with his incredible DJ/EDM aesthetic and style. He turns tracks into records- competitive and familiar in the best way. In short:Emrah is simply a world class engineer- !

    I always believe his high quality skills that control whole range of sound spectrum. This time I love the bass enhancement especially.

    In my opinion Emrah Celik is a brilliant engineer, both technically clairvoyant and also 100 % musically inclined and gifted. Up and down, left to right, front to back.

    He is no doubt as self described in his profile: a master of his genre and craft. Beyond that He has been a pleasure to work with every step of the way, totally responsive and genuinely invested in the quality of the work.

    I feel lucky for having got to work with him and 100 percent would encourage anyone to get in touch !

Interview with Emrah Celik

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: There are a lot of them. Every song I work on I'm proud because they all sounded better than it was before.

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: I am working on mixes that I get daily basis.

  5. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  6. A: Well, no I don't know anybody so I can't recommend to my clients.

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: It does not matter, both are tools. Tools are not making sound better but the experienced engineer does. I can make sound better in both analog or digital. You can't tell the difference.

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

  10. A: It will sound better than what it is now. 100%

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

  12. A: Make somebody excited and happy is the thing I like most about my job. That's why I started with my illegal radio when I was 13. I started making my neighbourhood happy first, taste was great and I will continue until I die.

  13. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  14. A: Can you make this track sound better? - Ohh hell yeah!

  15. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  16. A: Great mix start with great production. You can't just produce bad music and expect it to be most viewed song on Youtube. But no worries, I'm here for you to tell you truth that can be hurt in the beginning but good days are coming :)

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

  18. A: How can I help you to feel magic?

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

  20. A: Always credit the passion.

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

  22. A: No need 5 piece of gear. My computer, a pair headphones and a soundcard are good enough for me to deliver high level of music.

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

  24. A: It was back in 2010 when I entered the top charts with my productions but I have been collecting information, knowledge since 1993.

  26. A: I am very very passionate about music and I love to rule sound.

  28. A: I can work with any EDM artist on the planet and add a magic to their songs.

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

  30. A: Make music with heart and do not try to be too technical. Music is soul not a robot.

  31. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  32. A: EDM-EDM-EDM. Anything that you produce with computer I can make it sound better!

  33. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  34. A: Experience of course. I have been in music business since I was 13. I put a radio transmitter and started sending illegal radio signal on my neighbourhood and my playlist nothing but all the 90's great EDM songs. My illegal radio become very popular but shut down by officers later so I was hired by an official legal radio to keep playing great music. Since then my strongest skill is feeling to the great music and my experience. I KNOW exactly how good song should be and should sound. Grammy winning genius Greg Wells told me that I can compete with the top engineers like the f**king best one once he listened my mixes. Andrew Scheps could not find any issue with my mixes and told me "bravo!" which is a proof that i'm on the right path and my experience and knowledge is at highest level.

  35. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  36. A: I bring life, story, competition and sonically perfection to a song.

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

  38. A: I start by listening the song that i'm working on entire day. I live with the track that day to feel where to go with the track. I try to sketch a story with it in my mind and then I open my session, first thing I do is to put that story into the track, balance everything nicely, get the vibe going and then I start mixing the channels that I feel they need to be enhanced. Once I'm done mixing, I listen the story again and if it's exactly like in my mind I start testing it technically to make sure it's also competitive with industry standards. At the end of work process I all have nothing but a perfect sounding song.

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: I have a private studio which I'm not sharing with someone else, I spend most of my time in the studio making sound better. It's acoustically fantastic, I have multiple monitoring system to not miss anything from the sound source also I have Powered Speakers that can be used in a club so I can test my project on that system too to make sure everything is perfect. 1000's of plugins that worth more than 10K USD, some gears I use here and there, great converters, powerful computer and the most important than anything in my studio which is my ears. :) They are golden.

  41. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  42. A: I don't really follow or check some names in the business, I like to dig deeper and find great songs that is mixed great and it does not have to be a professional. Professionals are just the lucky names and I have seen much better works than a grammy winning pro produced, mixed or mastered. I love music that is not coming from like a robot is mixed, mastered or produced. I love music that is made by heart.

  43. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  44. A: I usually mix and master EDM songs. I don't just mix what is there but I give advices if there is missing in the arrangement, song structure, harmonic problems, instrument performance, sound selection, phase issue etc. This is complete job rather than just EQ'ing or compressing the tracks.
