I will dedicate myself to your project as if it were my own production. Using years of expertise, intuition and love of music, I'll take your music to the next level.
I have been involved in the music industry for more than a decade and experiencing the industry across many countries. I graduated in Audio Engineering from the world-renowned SAE in Los Angeles. For the last ten years, I have been working as a Mixing and Music Producer teacher in a film and audio school.
I mix, produce and master if needed. With mixing I have a curated acoustic studio with high-end monitoring and converters (Mastering Grade). I use a hybrid digital/analog system, which grants me the flexibility and the depth 3D sounding that analog always gives you. Additionally, with a rich background in this industry, I have amassed a great amount of contacts including musicians, songwriters and producers of every genre. If required, I can bring these onto the project for assistance.
To know and cherish the music industry as I do, I also bring with me an innate ability to know how a track should work. Aware of how it needs to sound in headphones, earbuds, on the radio, in the car, and on the dance floor is a skill I have honed.

Interview with Salva Ballesteros
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a tuned and acoustically treated room with the amazing Dutch&Dutch 8C and Auratone Monitors. Also some Dangerous, Merging and Croockwood Mastering grade converters to have the highest listening. Every track is analog summed in the Dangerous 2BUS+ and processed by some finest gear like Elysia Museq, Bettermaker mastering EQ and Comp, Dangerous Compressor.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Work in great music every day.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: For 15 years.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Don't over-process your music. Less is more.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Mostly electronic-based music. So basically most of the actual genres.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Listen and find what make your track sonically better/worst. Being perfectionist and treating every track as if it was mine. I think your track will talk about me too. So we better nail it!
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Modern, 3D, profundity, open, and spatial sound. I won't limit to mix the track and go to the next one. I will listen properly to the project and offer my vision if there is anything that I can do to make the track better.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: First of all, I chat with the client and know the project and what he wants to achieve. After we both on the same page I will work on the track until I get the track to its best. I will do final corrections if needed live in contact with the client for better results.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I mostly Mix. But I also produce and design sounds with my modular, analog synths or digital software.
