I'm an independent music producer, mixing, and mastering engineer whose passion is making great music and connections with people around the world every day. I love mixing Pop, Indie Pop, Alternative Rock, Indie Rock, Folk, and Soul tunes, but I'm open to all genres as well.

I use Logic Pro, and you can send me your demo as a project file if you're a Logic Pro user.

  9. Review by Arda E.

    Orcun was absolutely incredible with everything one could wish for when it comes down to a discipline like this. His ability of empathy combines perfectly with a solid compassion for art and builds a bridge between friendship, arguments and creating the perfect way for a sound. Patient, deeply informed with different genres, market, artists of different range from various circles, a good professional and shows obvious potential to become top class in the game.
