I can get the most out of your budget with highest quality results. I have my own studio based in Barcelona.
If you are an artist or songwriter and you need a Single/EP/Album produced I am the producer you are looking for. No matter if you only have a guitar/piano or a pre-produced demo, we will turn it into a song.

I am an experienced string and horn arranger.
If you don´t know the style you want for your production, I will give you my best advice.
I´ll prepare a pre-production for you and once we agree on it, we can start recording.
I specialize in recording and editing vocals including comping, cleaning, timing and tuning.
I work with the singer to attain the most emotional and professional vocal performance.
We can also create great harmonies and background vocal arrangements.
AFTER THE RECORDING

Also, we can master your song in Nashville at extremely reasonable rates with a great mastering engineer who worked at Motown for many years in the 60’s and 70’s.

Wonderful to communicate with & such an easy personality! Very clear of his vision and gave me everything I needed to work with! Looking forward to working more in the future!
I recorded my first album with Marcelo and it was the best experience of my life. I was new in it and he tought me a lot of things. I dind’t even know what I wanted my album to sound like and his big professionality and great taste in music made it even better than what I could have ever imagined.
He is also such a great person, very sweet and meticulous with his work. The production he made for my album was absolutely special and he made all the string arrangements with a very personal touch.
I honestly feel very happy and proud every time I listen to my album and that is so priceless.

We also have all kind of instruments and guitar amps (Fender Reverb Deluxe, Vox AC30) and an amazing vintage Yamaha Recording 9000 drum set.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: We start by listening to the client, knowing the person and the artist. Then we listen to the song(s) to be produced or arranged. Once we know what we need for the song, I prepare a pre-production. If we are happy with the result, then we proceed to the recording.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I´ve worked with dozens of artists through the years; my goal has always been to find the soul and substance of both artist and song and translate those qualities into music.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Patience! I always make things happen.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Pop, pop/rock, choral, playbacks for TV.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?

Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I am very versatile. Working with different artists make you learn that the producers are at the service of the artist. We should develop the artist´s personalities and styles.
