    WOW just WOW!! I cannot say enough good things about Ariel. He was an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish. He truly cared about making the record the best it could be and my goodness did he ABSOLUTELY KILL IT! He elevated my record to a level I did not know it could have gone to. I was very selective with who I wanted to work with because of how important the track was and it was a match made in heaven. I hope to work with him again very soon! This man is a WIZARD!

    I cannot speak highly enough of Ariel. His intuition and attention to detail are on another level. He brought out an emotional and energetic quality to my vocal arrangements that I couldn’t have imagined myself. Ariel understood the direction I wanted to go in with the references I gave him. Extremely communicative as well. I look forward to working with Ariel again very soon.

    I have always been a believer that music is magic...and I finally got to work with the wizard!
    Ariel was a great pleasure to work with. He made everything so simple and was in line with my vision for the mix and master from the very start of the project.
    I asked for a commercial hit mix and that’s exactly what he gave me!
    His skills are exceptional and so is his attitude towards working with new artists....especially when showing passion and insight.
    I am looking forward to our next project

    Working with Ariel was an incredible experience! I provided him with a list of effects that I wanted for my track. He was able to make them all possible while adding more. While I only required one revision there is no doubt in my mind he would have tweaked my mix until it matched my vision. He seemed truly interested and my work. I cannot wait to work with him again.

    I feel so blessed to have been able to create a whole project with Ariel. It was truly an extraordinary experience from start to finish. The songs are all mixed so well and sound very high quality. Having the opportunity to work with him as an independent artist is a privilige. Can't wait to release the music. He did a stunning job, I can't thank him enough.

    I reached Ariel to bring my track to the next level.
    He did vocal tuning, time alignment, beat, and lead vocals, add libs stems mixing and mastering + delivered mastered song, acapella track, acapella track clean version, song tv mix version, beat stems, mastered clean song version (no cussed words)
    I'm satisfied cause he's been able to interpret my vision of the song, satisfy my needs, and tell me what was good or not to do, breaking "The client is always right" rule!!

    Ariel is a talented professional. There's many producers/engineers here, at various levels of ability and experience. When I say Ariel is "professional," I mean in his communications with you, his standard of technical skill, and ear training from many years of mixing "hit" songs and award-winning artists.
    He approaches each track as a unique music form with a view to producing contemporary sounding radio ready tracks, no matter what the style. Ariel is this caliber of engineer!

    Finding a fitting mixing engineer for your music isn't an easy task - that's why I was thrilled when I discovered Ariel on this platform! 
    I haven't often had someone really understand the vision in my mind and then actually put it into practice. The final mix which I received is definitely one of the best results I've ever obtained. 
    It should also be emphasised that Ariel has always been very reliable and patient during the process and has also brought his individual class to the table!

And Lord knows I've been through more than my fair share. Would 100% recommend.

Interview with Ariel Chobaz

  1. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  2. A: Being able to realize the artistic vision of an artist while creating impactful, meaningful, and commercial mixes

  3. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  4. A: Both, it comes down to what works for certain sounds and songs. I've found a combination provides the most benefit of both mediums

  5. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  6. A: I put the same amount of passion and effort into every project, no matter the budget

  7. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  8. A: That I get to work on what I love most every day

  9. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  10. A: I am lucky that I get to work on an extremely wide range of genres and styles which keeps me learning, pushing, and passionate about all my projects.

  11. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  12. A: Passion for the project and a desire to make the song the very best it can be, I am only as good as my latest mix

  13. Q: What's your typical work process?

  14. A: I start a mix and about half way through I start the mastering. This allows me to adjust both as I finish and finalize the mix to ensure I'm getting the most energy, impact, punch, depth, width, warmth, and clarity possible. I also request reference songs to ensure I nail the vision for the mix and master

  15. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  16. A: It's a combination of analog and digital which allows me to have an unprecedented amount of automation (for example automating filter sweeps on reverb returns)

  17. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  18. A: Colleges and friends that inspire me would include Dave Pensado, Manny Marroquin, Serban Ghenea, and Jaycen Joshua to name a few

  19. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  20. A: Final mixing and mastering. Because I mix into my master bus I am able to adjust both throughout the mixing process, creating a synergy and marriage between the mix and the master that is undeniably musical and incredible sounding
