Add a bright tight brass section to your music in less than what you think. Produce and sound professional any sketch song you have

I'm a professional trombone player based in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I also play guitar, ukelele, synths. I am a music producer, I have my own home studio with professional equipment.

I have a degree in Jazz Music and an upper graduate degree in Music & Technology called Música Expandida dictated by the Universidad Nacional de San Martín (UNSAM).
I'm offering trombone recordings in professional quality, in my studio I use an Apogee duet II as my sound interface and an Electrovoice RE20 as a mic, in order to be able to deliver professional audio files. I can produce songs, compose brass arrangements and record them, record guitars, ukeleles, synths (Moog Subphatty, Arturia Microfreak, Eurorack modular systemsand many virtual instruments)
