we make music
Don’t you think that all applications are similar to each other? Let me try to interest you in another way.
I’m professionally engaged in producing, mixing tracks and mastering them in the genres edm, indie and pop.
WHY SHOULD I BE CHOSEN TO DO YOUR JOB?
1. I am guided by popular musical genres, so you do not have to draw me a map - I will understand what you need perfectly.
2. Always in touch. I am in touch most of the time of the day, so I promptly respond to your messages in the process.
3. Your adjustments. I’ll try to make it great the first time, but if you don’t like something, I will make changes until you say “I’m happy with everything.”
4. I love what I do. I know that many of the poor countries are here, and they work here only for the sake of earning money rather than for pleasure. I am a singer and I produce myself, I have my own brand. I love a lot of genres, but not all of them, in principle, can be monetized within a single brand. So I want also to help other people make music.
1. The work is carried out in full.
2. Your data will not be passed on to third parties.
If you have read to the end, it means that you are already interested in my proposal.

Interview with stevenson
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Now I am working on my personal songs. Besides the fact that I produce your songs, I also produce myself, because I am also a singer.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I will choose digital, because firstly, plugins have now learned to emulate the sound of an analogue so well that it is almost impossible to distinguish them, secondly, using an analogue greatly complicates life, and thirdly, it is not about what you use, but how you use it ... For example, look at the production process of Martin Garrix songs. He practically does not use an analog at all, he just hangs plug-ins on the tracks and that's it.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: My guarantees: 1. The work is carried out in full. I love to work “perfectly” the first time, so I write everything down and don’t forget anything. 2. Your data will not be passed on to third parties. Everything provided for work remains in strict secrecy and is not disclosed.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That a producer is someone who gives a lot of money.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I have no questions for potential clients. If you want a cool song - come to me.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: A person's portfolio is sometimes more eloquent than himself.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: One guitar and one woman would be enough for me. I would sing her songs with a guitar and be happy.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have been making music for over 12 years. At first I was a musician, playing the accordion and keys in the orchestra. Then when I grew up I realized that I wanted more, so I created my own cover band, which I produced, and for which I mixed and made songs. We covered blues, soul songs (pee wee ellis, rick astley), and even managed to go on a tour in Ukraine. After that for some reason the band broke up, but I realized that I wanted to produce and mix the songs further. Since then I have been doing what I have been doing for almost 6 years. Many people ask me if the fact that I have no higher education hinders me. I don't think it matters at all. I personally know sound engineers who graduated from the university as sound engineers, but in reality they are complete mediocrity and can not do anything. What kind of producer or sound engineer you are determines not where you studied, but the amount of your experience and understanding of what you do. There is a lot of information on the topic of sound engineering, and even free information on the Internet on forums is certainly no less than in universities. There would be a desire to master all this.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I mix all styles in a row, but in a way that sounds holistic. My approach is somewhat reminiscent of producer and singer EDEN.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I want to work with Justin Bieber. He is a pop music legend and I truly believe that he and his producer changed history. Even if he is not involved in the creation of his songs, it would be cool just to communicate with him as a person who is in this environment.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: The arrangement must be balanced across all frequencies. That is, there should be instruments at low frequencies, at medium frequencies, and at high frequencies. Part of the point of arranging is to correctly arrange the instruments along the frequency range to facilitate the work of the mix engineer.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Electronic Music, Indie, Pop, Orchestral, Folk
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I know how to make a competent arrangement. I have 11 years of experience playing in an orchestra, so like no one else I understand what should be where to be.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Each song is the fruit of my sick fantasy. I could lie about how vital each song is to me, but it would be a lie to be honest. I believe that the strongest emotions are what you have inside, and no matter how cool your life is, if you don't know how to fantasize, you will never write a good song.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I do not like to describe the details of the workflow, because each song is written differently, but still I will outline something. I produce, mix and master with the reaper and fl studio programs, I don't use any other software. When producing, I write music in an absolutely chaotic manner, that is: I can sketch a demo on a synthesizer, I can sing something by accident, or something can just come to my mind. When mixing, I first split the instruments into groups, and mix the instruments separately in each group. Then I mix these groups together, and in order to better glue all the groups, I apply collecting compression. Then I do mastering at high volume. It is unlikely that I will describe here all the mixing techniques that I use, because there are so many of them. But in any case I use different techniques for each track, because the tasks are different everywhere. Somewhere the main goal is to remove flaws, and somewhere the main goal is to improve an already excellent recording.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: SE Electronics X1A, Tascam VL-S3, Focusrite Scarlett Solo, Superlux HD669
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Bob Sinclar, David Guetta, Chris Willis, Fergie, Redfoo, BMTH, Conor Maynard, Nothing More, Asking Alexandria and many other good musicians
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Most often clients ask me to produce a song for them.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: In my work, I love absolutely everything, I am happy to be who I am. In addition to ghost producing, I have my own brand and as a singer I produce myself.
