Loved the song, mix was beautifully crafted and on top of that, Santiago was great to deal with ! Such a nice guy :-) Thanks Santiago, had a great time mastering your track !
Muy profesional, y cordial, siempre a tiempo para responder. Lo recomiendo!
Santiago and me work together for already 6 years. I had my first gig in his band when I became professional musician and we wrote together my first album The Secret Moment (smooth jazz). Title song is still played in smooth jazz radios around the world. He made most of the arrangements and played multiple instruments...guitar, percs, drum programming, synths.
Second album he mixed, mastered and played guitars (smooth jazz, electronic music).
Third album "Christmas album" he mixed and played guitars.
Santiago is amazing talent with professional approach.
Go and listen ;)
Santiago Ferreira is a very skilled musician with complete command of the creative songwriting process in various musical genres to the entire technical recording and post production process. A true asset to any cooperation as he himself is a highly skilled multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, and seasoned performer. I have had the pleasure to cooperate with Santiago on stage as well as in the creative process of composing. Furthermore it is important to note that creates an enjoyable and fun atmosphere. Attention to detail, highly highly recommended.
Sehr professionell und zuverlässig. Mein Album wurde von Santiago mix&master und er hat eine absolute Klasse Arbeit abgeliefert. Die Kommunikation war immer flexibel und problemlos. Ich durfte meine Wünsche offen äußern und Änderungen wurden auch sofort berücksichtigt. Durch seine lange Jahre Erfahrung weiss santiago genau worauf es ankommt und hat mir sehr geholfen mein Album perfekt zu machen. Durch seine Musikalische Erfahrung und Kenntnisse liefert er professionelle und inspirierende Arbeit ab. Ich werde ganz sicher noch mal mit ihm zusammen arbeiten. Definitiv weiter zu empfehlen.
