Producing vocals and guitars.

I like to think that what I bring to a song is an eclectic approach to music and my multicultural background.

Tell us about your studio setup.
The studio setup at our studio (EOG Producciones) is a well balanced blend of classic analog gear and digital equipment. My particular taste almost always tends to favor our classic Neve 1073 Preamps and our U47 or M49. This with respect to a vocal song, for example.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
George Martin, Daniel Lanois, Trevor Horn, Don Was, Miles Davis, Gil Evans.
