Im a music producer with 4 years of experience with independent alt-rock bands, folk and pop bands. I used to play in a rock band and tour around Latin America. I did 3 albums with that band in different studios. I left the band to focus just in music production and mixing.
I can mix songs at my studio where I can use some outboard gear as well as UAD plug-is.
Also Im a guitarist and I can record some tracks if is needed, I have lot of gear for that.
Finally I produce albums of bands in Colombia so if is not a problem I can produce songs from Colombia even if the artist is in another country. However if someone wants to come visit for a production everyone is welcome.
PS: I work with video too, cleaning dialogues, doing Foley, ambients and sound effects for movies.
