Idan Altman on SoundBetter

I am a minimalist, perfectionist and I will go above and beyond to make sure you get exactly what you want. I’m a full time producer / mixing engineer with 15 years of experience and I love what I do. Listen to my full portfolio and find out more on idanaltman.com

I aim to make honest, organic sounding music that represents the artist and not the technology. I want to create something unique that will survive the test of time.

As a producer I will play different instruments (Guitar, Bass, Piano, Keys, Synths), Program Drums / Beats, create Live String Arrangements and if necessary hire additional musicians if you want to add a live drummer or backing vocalist for example.

I regularly ask for your feedback as I develop the arrangement to make sure that you are involved as much as possible throughout the production and mixing process.

My production price includes Mixing and Mastering which means that you get a final master that you can upload directly to Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube etc.

Song Production turnaround is 7-9 days on average and I usually deliver a first draft within 1 day after payment. Mixing and Mastering turnaround is 1 day and in urgent cases I can deliver earlier.
Production price is calculated for 10 -12 hours of work during which you'll be able to revise the song as we go along . Mixing price includes Mastering and 4 revisions. Mastering price include 2 revisions.
I work for a fixed fee and do not ask for shares of copyright / royalties which means that you own 100% of the song (work for hire)

I also offer private lessons in music production, mixing and mastering - find out more on my website.

  • Is your song ready for production?Oct 25, 2018

    I believe that a great song starts with a solid Foundation so before you start adding endless layers of instruments to your demo, make sure to think about the following:


    What is the basic melody? 


    What are the basic chords that accompany that melody?


    Which octave are either of these on?


    What is the beat and tempo of the song? 


    Is the current key right for your voice?
