I am audio engineer with 15+years experience in recording, mixing. I am also session / live drummer with tour experience. Most of my initial experience was on post production studios and live, but after some years now I can really focus on my music recording studio which is my passion.
I have a full studio for recording, mixing and mastering in Malaga, Spain. in addition to the studio gear I can offer great backline instruments for session recordings. The studio rooms have been treated with very high quality materials by best acoustic analysis professionals in the city.
I am using Cubase Pro 9.5 as my main system , but I also have ProTools 12 with Antelope interfaces, and a vast variety of plugins from the best companies.
When I work with an artist, I usually like to carefully listen to the songs and identify the best features from the artists and the song itself. I love to hear also any ideas about the direction of the mix, maybe with an audio example from another artist, just to make sure we are in the same page. A rough mix is not necessary but welcome, but a few reference mixes are mandatory. It saves time and it is easier to show the direction when you have something to compare.
I hope we can work together soon!

Reviews (1)Endorse Maze Studios
We've had an amazing experience with Fer in Maze Studios! It was our first time in a studio. We have learnt a lot in just 2 days.. So much new inspiration and the importance of rhythm and sound. We are very thankful to Fer and we've already booked some more days for recording with him in July.
Interview with Maze Studios
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Well, this last Elderdawn album has been a lot of work for me. I had to rewrite all drums, resample them, reamplify all guitar and bass guitar parts and mix 90+ track sessions for 12 songs. We are almost done, just need to record a few vocal parts and we are good to go for mastering.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I am working on the Elderdawn's album. All mixes are finished, but we need to re record a few vocals. They recorded themselves at home and some takes were not high quality, so I told them to come and record them at my studio.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Well, unfortunately I don't know anyone yet other than the big names like Yoad Nevo, Andrew Scheps, Shachar Gilad, M. Marroquin, etc. and I recommend them all!! But hopefully I will get to meet awesome people here, I am really excited!
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Well, if I had a bigger studio and bigger budget, I would buy more analog gear. I mainly work on digital, which I don't dread. The speed and edit possibilities is a life saver!
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: The challenging and creativity parts. I used to work on post production studios but this work was too repetitive and not inspiring at all. Music is my passion.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Listen to the music shared on my profile. If that sounds good to you, your music will sound good too, even if it's not the same genre. I think all providers here are good professionals who only want to get the best from customer's talent. If unsure, contact provider and explain what you need, noone better can tell you if they can reach your expectations or not.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Whenever I play drums, guitars or any other instrument or I mix, I always try to be very clean and accurate so that the listener can feel the music as clear as possible.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Anathema. I love their music and everything they do. If I am able to be part of their talent legacy at some point, it would be awesome! And Demi Lovato too, I think she is an outstanding singer and working with her would be a dream come true.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: If you are using one process and hear a big difference, it's already too much. Everything in music, music production is based on small layers of detail. Know where and when to process is probably the hardest thing to master.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: From Pop/Rock to Heavy/Progressive Metal.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: All these years of playing, listening very carefully and mixing songs granted me the ability to plan in advance and make sure what will and what won't work for the final mix.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Listen to the song and think about what it says to me. When I have a clear picture of where I want to go with the production, I speak to the artist and together we get the best possible results.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I record with my Yamaha dm2000v2 / UAD apollo and then mix on the box using external gear as well.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Everyone! I try to learn as much as I can from everyone. This business is so wide and full of people to learn from and get inspired.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I generally do drum tracks, production and mixing. People bring me a small demo or ideas to work on and improve it together.
