Hello, everyone, I'm a professional audio engineer that is located in Los Angeles, CA. I'm currently looking to work with new artists and expand my clientele. I can mix a wide variety of music including Rap, Pop, RnB, Gospel, Latin pop, Reggaeton, EDM. I hope to make hits, but most importantly to make visions come to life and dreams become reality.
Professional mixing and mastering that will take your song to the next level. Your vision is my priority and my end goal is to make your song sound how you envisioned it while competing with today's music. I specialize in anything that has to do with mixing and mastering as well as editing and pitch correction. Everything is done in Pro Tools and mixed with industry-standard software.

Interview with Gilberto Benitez
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That we just press a button that mixes everything.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Look for someone who is passionate about your project. Only then will you get the best service and love for your music.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: My Lauten Audio Atlantis, Neve 1073, Distressor and Apollo Twin, Oh and a MacBook.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I work with a lot of RnB, Rap, but I also work with a lot of live instruments, bands, and pop. I have even worked with gospel legends such as Eddie Brown and Daniel Johnson.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: As a musician and mainly a drummer I have an ear for pitch and timing. Autotune is cool, but when it. comes to pitch correction I use Melodyne. I use it pretty often too because even if a small grunt, the beginning, or the ending of a line is slightly flat or sharp, correcting it to the right note can take your song from 98% to 100%. Same thing with timing.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: If I'm recording the song then I always have a vision on what the end product will sound like before we even start. This helps me know how many tracks we should do, how many layers and what needs to be recorded as an adlib etc. If im mixing then I want to know the artist's vision as well as what the music out now sounds like so I can create a song that not only sounds good but stands out.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have my studio set up in an office space I transformed into a professional studio. Im running Pro Tools out of my Mac Pro with a Universal Audio Apollo x8 as the interface.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I provide an all in one shop for my clients whether it's recording, mixing, mastering, and even production in some cases. Most of the time I'm mainly recording and mixing.
