About me

Gabor Terjek

Hi, I’m Gabor Terjek better know by my artist name “Fiddler”. I’m a qualified audio engineer, music producer and an experienced acoustician. I’ve been awarded for scholarship at SAE Institute Dubai and finished my Bachelor’s degree studies with HD grades. In the past decade I’ve been working on different music projects including, but not limited to theatrical music, background music for websites and e-brochures, and instrumental songs for various artists.

In addition I was involved in film projects as well. I'm also a studio enthusiast, love to collect studio gear and have fun with them. In personal life I'm a proud dad and I love to fish inshore and in deep water as well. 

Technical Experience and Skills

I gained hands-on experience in the past 15 years in professional audio softwares including, but not limited to Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase, Maschine and Wavelab. I’ve been using these softwares for composing music, recording vocals and various instruments, recording dialogs and sound effects for film (ADR, Foley) as well as repairing, editing, mixing and mastering audio for music and film production.

The 6 years IT support experience have always been a great benefit to me. I’m able to install, configure, maintain and troubleshoot hardware and software of computers, audio equipments and other electronic devices. My hardware knowledge covers soldering and cabling of electronic devices, maintaining and troubleshooting small mechanical devices. 

Room acoustics is something that I’ve picked up in the past years due to home studio installations and also I’ve studied acoustics in SAE Institute. The desire for continuous acoustic improvements encourage me to understand room acoustics, theory, practical measurement, and prepare my own acoustic panels, bass traps and speaker stands.
