    Alex is an absolute magician!!! He was constantly clear and precise in his professional manner. His idea around the fine-tuning of the bass truly transformed our song into something beautiful.

    I'm most definitely looking forward to working with Alex on my future projects.

    A very pleasant and helpful experience.
    This song was an experiment and I was a bit nervous entering the mix phase, especially as it’s remote.
    All I needed to do was to share the vision with my own not technical words and Alex got it immediately, and was very patient as always throughout the process.
    Excellent job.

    A great job as always. Alex did some edits for me on my previous mixed version. He understood the assignment and took just 2 iterations to get it done. Will definitely recommend.

Interview with dontaskalex

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

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

  8. A: My style is simplistic and straight forward.

  9. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  10. A: I would love to work with Post Malone because he just seems like a chill dude to hang out and to work with.

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

  12. A: Give it time and try to spread out your sessions over multiple days or weeks. Sometimes you just like an idea because you heard it too often in a row.

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

  14. A: I am working on lofi, indie pop, pop and chillout music. But i am really open to every kind of genre.

  16. A: Understanding the clients idea.

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

  18. A: I bring a lot of experiences from mixing and mastering hundreds of songs. Sometimes my own, sometimes working with other singers and sometimes for complete strangers. I think i can understand the ideas of other people pretty well and i can translate them into the song.

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

  20. A: There is no typical work process for me, its different everytime and thats the reason why its never getting boring.

  24. A: I'm working on an album with a singer and i am also producing my own songs.

  26. A: There is another mixing and mastering engineer called Fred who does really good work.

  27. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  28. A: Digital, because a lot of digital plugins have algorithms implemented designed to reimagine analog tools, for example reverbs and delays.

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

  32. A: Its possible from everywhere and with everyone

  34. A: How should you prepare your pre-master: make sure it has some headroom about -6dB

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

  36. A: Even though mastering and mixing is pretty technical it has a creative component to it.

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

  38. A: Where do you want to publish your track and what sound should be accomplished.

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

  40. A: I am focusing on mastering single tracks, or tracks within a bigger project, for example an EP or LP. I am also doing mixing services, so there is the possibility to combine both services into one order.

  41. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  42. A: I am working on a Desktop PC with two KRK 8 ROKIT G3 Speakers and DT770 Pro Headphones. The DAW i use is FL Studio 20. I invested in a few Plugins from Izotope, Youlean and Soundtoys for mastering and mixing purposes.

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

  44. A: I am a big fan of the producer Rick Rubin. I just love his positive energy and the calmness in his approach of making music with different styles.

  • ROLAND CLOUD #001Sep 10, 2020

    I just discovered the Roland Cloud application and i am curious if it would be worth a shot. It's basically an emulation of the real synthesizers by Roland like juno-106. I think it would be fun playing around with different presets and discovering some new sounds.
