Ricardo is the most easiest and professional person I have had the pleasure to work with
His professionalism was mind blowing to witness. I’m very much looking forward to our next project
You have the artist’s interests and goals clearly in mind, I’ve never seen a person run that smoothly – letting the free flow of ideas move ahead uninterrupted.
He’s a pro. World class…I will certainly use you for all future projects. Seriously, you’re awesome at what you do
Ricardo Assuncao is a # 1 choice for Music Production, Mixing, and Mastering. He has completed several songs for me. I have found him to be professional, very knowledgable, and always responsive to my needs, he is a True PRO : )
He is great to work with. Fantastic.
This is my third time working with Ricardo, and like the other times, It was very productive. I was stuck on a song that needed some backup vocals and was ready to be sent out for mix. Ricardo did a great job with the vocals and even added something special in the bridge. I am very happy. You will not be disappointed when you hire Ricardo for your next project.
I am very happy with the arrangement Studio Assunção just finished for me. This song is very special to me and I had been working on this song for a few years but could not nail down a good arrangement. I sent it to Studio Assunção and they produced exactly what I was looking for. Can’t wait to send them another song.
I'm very happy I was able to find Ricardo here. He was a pleasure to work with and I'm looking forward to the next project he will help me on.
I recorded drums to a track he produced. Super smooth!

Interview with Ricardo Assunção
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: There is a Christian church in a city near mine, they have a project called "We are Church". In this project they help people who need emotional and spiritual support, go to schools and many other places, bringing friendship and love to those in need. One day they came to me to record live musics that their band composed. I realized that the environment and the situation in which we were going to record would not be easy and I tried to give some suggestions, until I postponed the recording, but they said that they just wanted to capture the moment and then remember it fondly. So I understood what I was supposed to do. After recording, they gave me the tracks and I started working on the first song, and despite all the limitations I had, I did my best and sent the first sample of the result to them. They said that they had no idea that it would be possible to obtain such a good result. After we finished the first song they released, and today they already have thousands of views on social networks. It was a very simple, but difficult job. Their joy made me even more determined to always do my best in all jobs, regardless of conditions.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Responding personally, I definitely prefer Digital. The practicality and speed with which you work with digital tools is getting more and more incredible. I don't even need to go into details about the sound of the latest-generation plugins and equipment, which are increasingly surprising.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: To think that I'm going to fix problems that should have been avoided in the recording. If you want an excellent mix, make sure you have made an excellent recording.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I like to give the proper coloration for each song, and make the person feel within the environment that sound proposes, so that he can understand the message that the song wants to convey.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Mixing and mastering. Clients hire me to record, mix and master their songs, or they already send me the tracks ready for work.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Is there a correction for this or that? It all depends on the recording, because it all starts with the recording. For some things there are solutions, for others a different way of using it, but for others there is no solution, you have to rewrite or even give up.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My ear. I have a very developed relative pitch, since I have many years of experience as music, mixing and mastering, and in that time I developed the strong ability to understand each sound and frequency.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I often talk to the client a lot, before and after work to understand the purpose and sound of where we want to get to music, so it is much easier to have a happy and satisfied customer.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Copyright Music Projects, and Client Projects.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: Rest assured that I will do my best to make your music sound as beautifully as possible.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Realize that I made a song come to life and personality, making my clients accomplished with my work. It brings me joy.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: A Macbook Pro, an Apollo Twin X, a Fender Strato American Delux, a box with cables (hahaha), and a Shure sm57.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Bethel Music, Tenth Avenue North, Hillsong, Jesus Culture, Newsboys, Michael Brauer, Andy Wallace, Warren Huart.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: The right color, the right ambient sound, and the right size and weight for each sound. I like softness in high frequencies, I try to avoid exaggerations.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Could you tell me about everything you plan for this project? Could you send me songs or links that look like the result you want to get to? Are you aware of the Terms of Service?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Before closing any business always contact us, and fearlessly ask all the questions necessary to answer all your questions.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: It's been about 10 years working with music production, more than 15 years of experience with guitar, for some years I also followed a career as a singer making several trips, taking my songs through Brazil, Portugal and Italy. Studying and gaining great experience in the Art of Mixing and Mastering, I have participated in several projects and obtained the joy of bringing fulfillment to each of my clients.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would love to have worked with Michael Jackson, he was a very rich guy in knowledge and creativity, I would very much have had the opportunity to learn from him.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Knowledge. Studying hard, and never stop studying is the best advice I can give. Study the type of sound you love, study the type of sound you want to make, and of course also study the types of sound that people love most today.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I love rock, pop rock, blues and any style that has guitars with a lot of feeling.
