Anthony Galindo is a music producer, songwriter and mixing engineer.
I was born in New York City. A multi-instrumentalist, I'm a well trained guitarist, producer, songwriter and mixing engineer. I've have produced and engineered countless commercials and jingles for La Mega 97.9 FM. I was the studio manager at EMW Music Group producing, mixing and developing artists before pursuing my freelance career.
For the unsigned artist or those on an indie budget, I offer hands-on mixing using one of New York’s most unique hybrid analogue/digital studios. My vision of the dynamics and sonic quality is what can always be expected before passing a final mix.
As a producer, I know how to create the right sonic palette and enhance the vocals with arrangements, textures and grooves that support the song and make listeners jump out of their seats!

I've been working with Anthony for the last 4 years, and he is hands down one of the best NYC has to offer. He's extremely knowledgeable, and is very reliable when quick turnarounds are needed. I can honestly say that I know very few people on his level. Great person to have in your corner.

Anthony has one of the best ears for mixing that I've heard in a long time. Every time I work with him, he focuses 100% on the mixing. Not only vocally, but also musically. That's very rare to come by. He's extremely amazing at what he does. Very professional too.

Interview with Anthony Galindo
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both! With Analog there's just natural textures, colors and unquantifiable traits that you just can't simulate. I'm also super pro-technology, and today's digital tools allow to do amazing things as well.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: A great song is about the arrangements, textures and the groove. I always keep in mind that the music must enhance and support the song and the vocals. Making the listener feel the emotion that was in the room when the song was created takes discipline to execute. I know how to create the right sonic palette and make listeners jump out of their seats!
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: I encourage the artist to share a good reference mix and notes, in order for me to understand their vision on how the record should sound.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Focusrite Red Preamp, Manley Microphone, SSL GBus, Manley VariMu, Manley Massive Passive.

Q: What's your strongest skill?

Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I try to bring a passionate and energetic character to any song.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My studio is always evolving but it always maintain a good hybrid analog/digital balance. I use Focal Trio6's and Adam A7X's.

My outboard gear process is pretty elaborate but includes Pultec-style EQs and SSL G Buss-style compressors which are on all my mixes.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
