Tudor Nacu on SoundBetter

Professional Mixing & Mastering engineer with a Master of Music in Music Production, Technology, and Innovation from Berklee College of Music and a BA in Sound and Music Production from the University of Lincoln, UK. My vast knowledge of both post-production and production can bring any song to the commercial standard you so desire.

My name is Tudor Nacu, a sound engineer from Bucharest, Romania, currently established in Spain. I have graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Sound & Music Production from the University of Lincoln in the United Kingdom and, afterwards, decided to further upgrade my skillset by attending a master’s programme in Music Production, Technology & Innovation at Berklee College of Music, the leading college of contemporary music. This extensive education provided me with foundation stretching across all genres.

Having been raised on Alternative rock, Pop-Punk and Metal, I have a strong expertise in these areas, however, that has never limited my musical curiosity which pushed me to experiment with sounds ranging from Hyper-Pop to niche ethnical music.

My experience, dedication as well as my passion for music ensure that I will deliver the mix and master you dream of, whether that is a clean Jazz tune or an experimental track meant to break boundaries.
