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 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 one week 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.

    I hired Idan to make a full production of a song I had written (I only had a ukulele+voice demo). He kept me in the loop during the whole process, was very patient and ready to make any changes and adjustments.

    Idan is a joy to work with. He is insightful, respectful, and made some excellent additions to my ambient / cinematic song. He tracked a new electric guitar part to enhance with my own and it was beautiful. Idan as zero ego and made great suggestions - but never forgot that it was my song. He is also a great teacher and was able to explain some of the corrections he needed to make. Will definitely work with him again.

    My daughter had two tracks that she wanted to produce both with vocals and guitar chords. Idan did a great job of replaying the guitar chords so they were of much better quality. After my daughter resang the vocals to the new guitar track, Idan did an excellent job adding some additional instrumentation and mixing the vocals and instrumentation together. The final master of the songs also had a nice finish to them.

  • 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?
