Joaquin Carcedo on SoundBetter

Musician of 10+ years, producer with experience recording, producing, mixing and mastering different styles of music. My main objective is always to improve the sound universe of each project, where I dedicate the necessary time to achieve a maximum result that leaves it according to the client.

I'm a musician, with a greater affinity for drums.
I have an instrumental band with friends called Los Pencales! check it out!
This led me to discover the world of audio and my love for it.
So I signed up for the sound carrer.

Once I finished it; I soon began an internship in Buenos Aires at the production company of Mario Breuer, a renowned sound engineer in Latin America. I ended up working for him for two years, as a production assistant. During that time, I worked in several recording/mixing n mastering sessions at Mcl studio(Buenos Aires) as principal assistant; At the same time i started to work as a freelance engineer.

¨Cachito studio¨ is my own music production station, where I am updated in tools to improve your music and make it sound great !
I also offer drums recording for adding organic texture to your song. High quality recording with Universal Audio Preamps.

I love helping new artists. No project is too big or small, so feel free to contact me with any questions you have.

Send me an email through 'Contact' button above and I'll get back to you asap.

    I am thrilled by the organic drums Joaquin did, they added the perfect texture it was missing. The mastering made my mix more coherent and dynamic! Working with Joaquin was a pleasure, he kept me in the loop every step of the way, and I will for sure work with him again.
    I highly recommend him!

    Joaquin totally get what I was looking for my record! He managed perfectly well all the dynamics and hues of the different songs and instruments. I give a lot of attention according to lyrics in every song, and he put the vocals in the precise place I wanted.
    I highly recommend this guy for any kind of mixing and mastering.

    I recorded my first album 15 years ago. during these years i met and worked with so many people but always felt i didn't find the right one. until i met joaquin. not only he read and understood my music within our first meeting, but he also offered himself to record the drums from the album, and he's the best drummer i've ever had! His mixes and masterings took the album to another level of professionalism. he is always on time with deadlines. i highly recommend his services. FIVE STARS!!
