X:144

Producer, mix & mastering engineer, dialogue supervisor/interactive speech specialist for games, and filmmaker. A list of titles like this sounds how it would be to describe most artists in the future. But the future starts somewhere, and that is the generation X:144 represents... The modern day renaissance artists.

With a long history in the music industry, from artist to producer to engineer, X has worn every hat in the creative process of music creation with undeniable success. His imprint lives in the work he does behind the scenes for many musical legends such as Ms. Lauryn, Qusai, Fredwreck, Kool G Rap, Joell Ortiz, Blueprint & Aesop Rock, and more.

Currently making his stamp in the gaming industry as one of the leading specialists in Interactive Dialogue Production; from Madden NFL for EA Sports, to now the acting Dialogue Supervisor for one of the world's most renowned game studios in the world, Naughty Dog Inc. - there's plenty more we have yet to see from Maged Khalil Ragab aka X:144 for years to come.

X:144 and FabFilter

"After transitioning to Ableton Live I went on the hunt for what was fresh and new in the 3rd party plug-in world being that was so fulfilled by Logic's set of stock plugins. I then stumbled across FabFilter, and life has been nicer since. I've used Fabfilter on every project from that day. They've become a critical part of my mastering chain and my favorite set tools during mixing."

"My desert island of the bunch are the entire Pro Bundle, with Pro-Q 2, Pro-L 2, etc. All of which have replaced every rendition each discipline those plugins represent as my go to's. But the most important thing that makes FabFilter so special is the GUI. It's literally the best interface and user experience I've had since the advent of digital audio. It's a good time to be alive."
