Hi, Remote Mixing & Mastering, DJ, Drum programmer and producer at your services. i am currently new in this but 5 years as a hobby and ready to take it as a job. I have been working in my father's factory since i was 12 and recently i decided to chase my dream and give my everything to this. I Live in a country where is hard to live from the music and i decide to give at least 30+ hours per week for this. I have been always curious about how things are made and what it takes to get them, and that's where i start to love and enjoy sound processing and production. Check The soundcloud links if you are interested on knowing about my DJ Mixes.

Interview with Reymon Ovalle

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

  2. A: Mixing: First Eq, Second Amplify the sound (If needed), then Compression (If needed), next Delay/Reverb/Distortion (If desired or neded) and last but not least leveling. And in the case of layering sounds, its almost the same process but with compression more present in the picture. Mastering: Check For noise or Crackling in the Song, Apply a Limiter, Boost the low Frecuency, then the high Frencuency. After that Then i proceed to Boost the mid frecuencies and last but not least apply Tape Effect to the recording for the best wideness for the track. Also In special ocassions i use a parallel compressors make it a bit more detailed the overall sound
