I've created and mixed/mastered tracks for Amazon, Freeform and NYX Cosmetics campaigns all within the past year. I understand what it takes to work with different types of clients and genres. Patience and communication is key!
My name is Tyler Falcoa and I own Coloring Silence Media. I just started using SoundBetter again, however I have been professionally mixing and mastering for more than 9 years. I have worked with companies like "NYX Cosmetics", Disney's "Freeform", "Amazon Prime" and artists like "Jannine Weigel", "shye." and "Nikita Afonso". I have found that clients appreciate a one on one relationship when creating the sound they want. As an artist myself, I understand what it takes to make that happen. I'm hired to edit individual tracks, mix, master and record any stringed instruments as well. Message me to hear more work from me or to ask any questions!

Interview with Tyler Falcoa
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I currently use Pro Tools and Logic when it comes to recording and mixing. Many of my plug-ins are Waves and Native and Slate however I have also recently been loving Universal Audio's selection as well. I mix on a 21.5 inch Mac that runs on 20 GB of ram so it's fast and effective. I mix and master with KRK Rockit 6s while also turning to my Sennheiser headphones for an alternative option.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I just finished working on the trailer audio for an upcoming feature called "Charles" which is a take on the infamous Chucky Doll. I also just finished writing/mixing and mastering for NYX Cosmetic's TikTok campaign "Brow Fitness"! That campaign got over 3 billion views on TikTok and that to me is a huge accomplishment.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I am currently working on a solo EP for myself and I go by the name TY Falcoa. It has a mix of 80's Pop with New Age guitar influences.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I like both processes however I grew up in the digital age with digital equipment. We live in a digital world and I think it's important to keep up with the tides in this industry.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: The question I get the most is, can you fix my pitch. I can fix your pitch....yes I can.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: The biggest misconception about what I do is that it's 'easy'. It is most certainly not easy because every job is different. Every vocal is different and was recorded in a different place with a different microphone. This job takes patience and a trained ear with experience to get done right.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: The first question I ask them is do they know how to export on their program. It all starts with their files. Making sure they have files that are clean and effective will ensure their mix comes out how they want it once they send it to me.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: My advice would be to read up on these questions and compare based on what you need done. Everyone has different goals in mind with different budgets and so compare to figure out what is best for you.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I would describe my style as very modern. I constantly watch videos and read up on what producers and engineers are doing right now and I think that's important when competing in today's music world.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would LOVE to work with Lauv. I think the fact that he does pretty much his own engineering with the same family of equipment is inspiring to me. I also like the creative choices that he makes dynamically.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: The music I typically work on is Pop and Hip Hop. However, I have had the opportunity to work in Country, Rock and New Age.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill would be vocal mixing. Being in a Pop duo, I had to work with harmonies A LOT! That can be tricky waters if you don't understand how eq/panning/multi-band compressing/bussing works. There are a lot of elements into making the vocal stand out in a mix (especially on a Pop or Hip Hop record) and I have gotten much practice with that.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring my own unique 'artist ear' and 'producer ear' as I call them. I understand what it takes to be a recording artist in the studio and I also understand the balance that needs to be shared with the producer in the studio. It's a give and take. I can bring that balance and expertise of working with various genres around the world, to you.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Charlie Puth is one of my inspirations as a producer and engineer. He knows how to make all elements of a Pop record actually 'pop'. I'm also a big fan of Joey Moi who has been a game changing producer from Rock all the way to Country.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: The most common type of work I do is mixing and mastering. Those two are the most important aspects of a song if you plan on competing with countless other songs on all streaming platforms!
