Collaborated with many international top artists. Licensed many of my songs to movies and commercials, reached many charts, released on major labels and have millions of streams. I like to do powerful EDM & Pop mixdowns and masters. Check out my work!
I have been working as a DJ/Producer for almost 15 years. I have released on Spinnin' Records, Universal Music and many other big labels. Was invited to do a Masterclass for the Berklee College of Music in my country to teach my production techniques.
I really enjoy Mixing and Mastering songs. I've developed and perfected my skills as a mixing and mastering engineer with my own techniques for many years. I know how to use my gear and plugins and how to get the best of them. I use a combination of analog gear and plugins depending on the track. I'm ready to make your song stand out and sound incredible!.
I'm specialized in modern techniques to Mix & Master EDM (Electro, Progressive House, Future House, Future Bass, Trance, Techno) and Pop (I also do vocal comping, tuning and aligning).
I will work and communicate with you until you get the result you are looking for.

Interview with Oscar Troya
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I get asked constantly to Mix and Master songs for fellow artists. I love doing this so I decided to join SoundBetter just to do it more.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I get inspired by many producers and engineers, but mostly it's Axwell, deadmau5, Luca Pretolesi and Calvin Harris
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My studio runs on Logic Pro X. I use a Universal Audio Apollo Interface with Genelec 8040a Speakers and Yamaha NS10m Speakers. I have a custom made SSL Compressor that does wonders to glue my mixes and 4 Pultec Clones, no plug-ins can even come close for this task. I really know how to use my plugins and how to get the best of them. I use a combination of analog and digital processors.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I get the stems from my clients into Logic, then I organize them in groups and start working from there. I listen and then process each stem, one by one.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring that special sparkle that makes a song truly shine on the radio and streaming services.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I became obsessed with Mixing and Mastering, so I started learning from many engineers while I worked in Los Angeles in a studio. From there I developed my own techniques and processes.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I usually work on EDM and Pop music. But I also do other genres like Reggaeton, Trap, Dubstep, you name it.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Use less tools and plugins to get your work done. The more you specialize in the few things you have, the more you get out of it.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would like to work with Axwell or Calvin Harris. I just love their songs and production/songwritting techniques
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started really early, I was djing when I was only 11 years old. I have been producing for more than 10 years now. I'm touring constantly thanks to my songs.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: My laptop, my speakers and a midi keyboard. That's it
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I ask customers to provide at least 2 reference songs and their own render so I can have a better idea of what they are looking for.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: "In order to achieve those crazy loud volumes you have to do it in the master". WRONG!. The secret is in the Mix.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise that we'll work things out until you get what you expect.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both. There's something special in analog gear, it's that 3% at the end that makes a difference.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm constantly working at my studio on my music.
