Lu is amazing man! very easy to-work with and gets the job done. He treats you like family in a business that can be very cutthroat. I would recommend any one to work with Lu!
Lou is a wonderfully talented engineer and musician, his ear for Sonics and his overall music and gear knowledges is next to none. He mastered my project preachers kid with little to work with, he made it shine!!! I recommend him to anybody that wants a serious ear that engineers with precision and care!!
Lu is simply one of the best engineers in my book period. He pays attention to what his clients wants and he goes over and beyond to achieve his clients goals. I would recommend him to anyone.
Thankful to work alongside Luis @ MidSideSound. Even though I'm a mix engineer as well, I still hire Lu & he knocks it out of the park every time. Having an engineer that can turn your ideas into much more is a key essential especially when you have a client roster jumping from Dreamville all the way to a punk rock band in Delaware. Lu has mastered 4 projects I’ve brought to him and together we have worked on over 28 singles from start to end. Go to Lu if you want your vision brought to life.
This man is the next big engineer coming out of Los Angeles, he doesn't just mix the project just to get it done like every other engineer. He mixes with purpose, passion, wisdom, and determination to take your home studio tracks to the next level. If you get the opportunity to work with him, sit in the comfy seat of worry-free. Lu will take your sound to the next level indubitably. I mixed with him for a few projects and keep coming back! Thanks again, bro!
Lu engineers at the highest levels, his work is truly industry grade & nothing less than professional. His humility & work ethic allow him to go above & beyond his peers & accomplish tasks with a higher degree of efficiency. Lu is very personable which makes working with him that much more enjoyable. I highly recommend his services to anyone seeking optimum quality with no compromises!
Not only is Lu a kind, patient, and great person to work with, but he is also a STELLAR audio engineer! His work with top industry artists should be enough to know that he is the real deal. He has taken my vocals to another level and it's always been a pleasure to work with him. Hire Lu! :)
Lu is amazing at what he does. I went in for a session with him and he took his time to make sure my project sounded perfect. Lu is professional, personable, and a joy to work with. Definitely will be booking another with session with him at my next opportunity. 10/10 recommendation.
Lu is by far the best engineer i have ever met and used. Humble, professional and just a real brother and lover of the art of SOUND! I’m glad our paths crossed via keyshia cole. As her MD, i was interested in who her engineer was because no matter how good you are, people remember the sound! And i met lu, who engineers for keyshia. Marriage made in heaven!! I’ll forever use him for all my engineering needs! Get “LU IF YOU NEED TO”!
If you are looking for authentic, professional, and expert quality mixing, look no further. I cannot put in to human words, just how phenomenal Lu's attention to detail, energy, rhythm and flow are. I absolutely cannot wait to send you my next project!
Luis/MidSide Sound is my go to Audio Engineer, Producer, and everything in between. He has some of the best gear out and more importantly, he knows how to use it to get the sound you desire! Truly impressed with What we’ve worked on🙌🏽 5stars! Thanks for all your help!
Luis is a rare person who goes beyond the term “the real deal”. He is extremely knowledgeable of the tools and techniques of his craft, he is sensitive to every aspect of the situation at hand, and he delivers high quality without fail. He’s hungry and he will literally lose sleep to make sure that the work is done right every time. He does it all with a smile on his face and decency in his heart. If you need someone to record, produce, mix, master, provide live audio support for a gig or corprorate event, consult on and install an audio system, Luis is your guy. Don’t hesitate.
Luis is professional and highly knowledgable. He approaches every project with musicality in mind, whether he is producing or engineering. Whenever I work with Luis, he always makes sure to go the extra mile-despite budget- to make sure the project reaches its full potential. Luis also empowers his clients through education so that they can become self-reliant and knowledgeable. Always with a great attitude and willingness to work with good people, Luis is developing his name as a go to pro in the Los Angeles area and beyond.
Luis is a great engineer! Very honest and thoughtful gentlemen. If you're in Cali, MidSide Sound is the place for you. Highly Recommended!
Interview with Lu - RIAA Gold Award Winner
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Attention to Detail and Movement. Nothings worse than a flat mix!
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I like to communicate with client first and see what their vision is, I don't like walking into a project with my view alone as it doesn't always mean thats what the client is looking for as well. I listen to their references and bounce notes back and forth and like to play devils advocate so that we can make a plan that works for everyone.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I love the production value by Pat "Teezio" with his work on Chris Browns music. Clear, Lightly Distorted Top End with enough vocal presence in the mix that you just say "WOW, Good Job Man!!!". If you look him up after he may very expensive but glad hes been doing great in his work!
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: As Keyshia Cole's Personal Engineer and work with other clients I work on allot of RnB and Hip Hop. I do funny enough come from a metal back ground working with Greg Hampton getting to work on allot of Rock n Roll, Heavy Metal and Synth Pop Rock!
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Ive got lots of cool toys to play with honestly but its more about what I do with the toys rather which ones they are, right? But, lets share the usual asked about pieces! I have a few setups I work with but most commonly I use my own room which features Lynx Aurora Mastering Converters which connect to my Bull Dog CPU (14 cores, 64gb Ram, i9 5.0ghz) via the Lynx AES16e Card for Extremely Fast Audio with Surreal Quality. Love Love Love the Combo! Happy to be a dealer for the CPUs because of how many big names use them like Dave Pensado and Ken Lewis! For Vocals I am using the very popular Lauten Audio LT386 Eden mic which everyone is seeing around with Cardi B, Keyshia Cole and many others. I like to run it through my Avalon 737 Channel Strip which has been a staple in this industry for decades now. Great Top End and a familiar professional sound!
