Marcus Akesson
Pro Tools/Logic/Studio One

I started my career in the studio world by setting up shop when I was 13 years old with a 4 track and a couple of mics. I've always been playing one or several instruments growing up in original bands as well as cover bands and in churches. I have my own 150m2 studio in a town on the west coast of Sweden, I can fit anything from a singer/instrumentalist to a 30 piece orchestra there. I work mainly in pop/rock, soul, old school RnB and singer/Songwriter. I have a clear vision when I'm producing, and that comes from me spending time with the artist/band that I'm working with long before we even set foot in the studio. I come visit the rehearsal space and meet with the artist at least a month ahead to work on the songs and make the studio time really worth it. That sets me apart from other studio owners and producers especially here in Sweden.

Teaching Experience:

I have taught recording and mixing techniques at the local university.

Custom Class:

I have an idea that the class will experience a whole production from me hearing the song(s) for the first time to a completed mix. This is basically divided into 5 or 6 courses in the main course but I would be something that really hasn't been done interactively yet.


Styles: Pop, Rock, R&B, Country, Praise and Worship

Gear: Harrison Mixbus, Waves, Uad, Mcdsp, Slate, Izotope, Softube, Sound Radix and then some...

(message instructor for details)

Mixing (Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced) - Tracking/Micing (Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced)

Editing (Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced) - Guitar pedals in recording and mixing (Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced)

Organic, inexpensive recordings that sounds like a million dollars. Mixing made available through the most precious gear that anyone owns, your ears.
I would like to explore the use of recording and mixing with the help of something that most of the home studio guys/girls have lying around. Guitar pedals! They can substitute far more expensive gear if applied properly.
