recording bands since '97


INSTAGRAM: dad, husband, owner and head engineer of audioconfusion creative recording space I've been recording for over 20 years and dabbling with audio in general for even longer. I like "real" sounds. No over processing here.

Audioconfusion has been running strong in the valley since '97.

There are few Arizona studios with a loyal following like Audioconfusion and even less producers like Jalipaz. Known to generations of artists as a musical godfather and mentor, he unflinchingly captures the magic behind the soundboard at Audioconfusion. There aren't any one-size-fits-all gated reverbs or cookie cutter compression effects here. Every recording session is authentic and real. Where some studios bank on delivering a “signature sound,” Audioconfusion is based upon the premise of genuine musicality backed by a strong work ethic. Every recording session and album are unique productions where the artist's character can shine through. The results are honest, raw, and brilliant – just like the first album you fell in love with. ~ Jonathan Cisneros
