Hear the difference you’ve missed all along.

Hello Universe!

I’m finally offering my mixing and engineering services to the public at large once again.

I have have been afforded the luxury to work in the music industry for over 20 years and collaborate alongside some of the best and most iconic artists, producers and engineers.

I worked as Mick Guzauski’s mix assistant from 2001 until 2013. I can bring that dedication and attention to detail to your next production.

I work in many genres and have been part of numerous Grammy and Latin Grammy Award
winning projects.

All this experience can now be put behind your next endeavor.

Contact me today!

I generally work on a Mac-based hybrid protools system running PT 12, with RME interfaces and gear by ADL, Yamaha, Urei, Eventide, TC Electronic, Lexicon, etc.

Plugins include but do not exclude any offerings by most major manufacturers.

Monitoring:
Tannoy SRM10B
Russ Berger “Uber Tones”
Vergeance NT2

I am currently the concert mixer (FOH) and technical director for James JT Taylor, the iconic voice behind hits like “Celebration”, “Too Hot”, ”Ladies Night”, “Get Down on it” and many more.

Interview with Dennis Rivadeneira

  1. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  2. A: Listening and production. Collaboration.

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

  4. A: A carefully honed set of capable ears.

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

  6. A: Nothing typical about any one of my days. It all involves critical listening and a caring, mindful approach, done within the context of the music.

  7. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  8. A: I own three PT systems. Two at a home studio and one traveling setup for exactly that. I also use some of this gear in my Live Sound endeavors. Monitoring by Tannoy, Precision Kinetics, NHT Pro. Gear by, Yamaha, Avid, TC Electronic, Anthony DeMaria Labs, Zsys, Lexicon, Urei, dbx, Altec, Ampex, akg, Neumann, Shure, Sennheiser, RCA, Roland, etc.

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

  10. A: I would need a whole week to think and write down the names of everyone who ever made a deep impression on me. I aim to learn as much as possible; not just about the music but about the artist and her/his sensibilities.

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

  12. A: None of my client’s needs are common so a common approach is never advisable in my opinion. An careful eye (ears) and experience are needed in order to accommodate for sudden creativity, which is more often than not, the norm.
