Eray is a super talented mastering engineer. He mastered my two singles. The thing that caught my attention was his dedication and creativity working together. Projects always ordinate and on time
I have worked with Eray as a mastering engineer for years, he is very dedicated and punctual. Working with him on various genres, I realize that he has very good ears and he knows his gear very well. He never leaves my work unattended and brings my mixed to life.
I worked with Eray on one of my song's editing and mixing project. He took a deep interest in it on every step from editing to my revisions. We're working on my new song's mixing now. He has an endless energy and i love it!
he has very shiny top level analog mastering gears. every track that i ve mixed steps up after his mastering. It is always a real pleasure working with him. Highly recommended.
Eray produced and mixed my first album "karmakader". He is a trustworthy sound engineer, with sharp ears and very positive energy. He is a hard worker who surprises you with the accuracy of his musical approach. As an artist, I am able to say that he understands and puts his creativity to satisfy your demand and never let you down. Amazing guy :)
I've been producing and co-producing for more than 8 years now and I have outsourced around 20 tracks to Eray in a 2-year span for mix and mastering. Not once he failed to meet my expectations nor the artist's. He puts his creativity and know-how in every song and is always ready to go the extra mile as if it's his name on the cover.
