Spanish musician/vocalist/sound engineer based in Cambridge, UK. Experience in rock/metal production, with several albums mixed and mastered. At the moment, endorsed with Joey Sturgis Tones as tutor. Singing since 2000, specially oriented to rock and metal music, though I adapt to different styles. Musical background of 10 years of piano.
I am going to mix and master your rock / metal song in a level that meets your needs. All the mix is done ITB (In The Box) with high quality plugins provided from the most important companies, ensuring a high quality final product.
I am constantly training and updating myself in mixing and mastering these specific genres, though my musical spectrum can be wider (i.e., hip hop, indie, classical, acoustic...), but I like to focus on the ones I am more proficient.
Feedback is essential for achieving a win-win both for the artist as clients and for me as a professional. That said, I am very open to it as long as we keep the things to change and/or improve in a clear and concise way, just in order to avoid unnecessary delays and misunderstandings that can affect the turnaround of the final product.
Requirements for mixing:
- Tracks in WAV format, 24 bits, mono/stereo when applicable.
- Labelling clear and concise (i.e, "GUITAR L", "VOX 01"...).
- Also, numbering off the tracks at the beginning would be appreciated (i.e, "01-kick", "02-snare top"...)
Requrements for mastering:
- Full song, WAV stereo 44.1kHz 24 bit
- Pre - mixed WAV format stems (individual tracks). No corrections/edits.
