Had an extremely good time working with Juan as he mixed and mastered my songs until I was comfortable with them. He enhanced the sound I was going for AND more. He went out of his way to stay in communication and was fast and professional while also staying very friendly. Even during the times when I wasnt exactly sure of how to describe the sound I was going for he knew exactly what I meant and knew exactly how to do so even with my lack of knowledge on how to communicate what I wanted. I definitely plan on going back to Juan in the future because of high quality and ease.
Amazing mixer and engineer. Goes out of his way to polish the artists vision until it's perfect. Have worked with Saucy on various projects and every time I'm amazed at the outcome. Highly recommended!
I've worked on countless sessions with Saucy as both an assistant and a fellow engineer. I highly recommend him for any recording, editing, or mixing needs.
All of the sessions I have done with Saucy have been successful. He is a cool, calm and collected presence in the studio that helps any type of artist feel comfortable enough to get their best performance. He is then able to enhance that performance even more using his vast knowledge and experience in Engineering. Not to mention, he has an extensive credit list that hasn't even been documented.
I've known Juan for over a decade as we went to college together. During that time he has developed cutting edge professional sensibilities without losing his good nature and keen musical awareness from a musicians perspective and not just a technical standpoint. Juan has obtained accolades and prestige from doing excellent work for lots of different artists, including many famous people, and yet, he seems to always have time to answer a question, check my mixes, offer career advice, and he's been doing that since before my career.
I COULD NOT BE MORE APPRECIATIVE OF JUAN. I've traveled across the country recording and trying to work with good engineers to make music that lives up to the original vision, and my search is over for finding the right engineer to work with. I came to Juan with a project and he was so understanding and determined to help turn that vision into reality while adding his artistic input and expertise when needed. I'm SO HAPPY I found him. Even as my budget grows, I plan on coming back to Juan. Great guy and great engineer.
I’ve worked with Saucy frequently over the years and one of the things that jumps off immediately is his understanding of an artists vision. Saucy has a high understanding across all genres and transcribes every artists language to meet the desires. In 5 years I’ve never gotten a bad mix from, everything is pressed and ready when he’s done and he does it without leaving you feeling like “somethings missing”. No matter what you ask he does it with a smile and a “no problem dude” and its done. I’d give him 100 start if I could because there’s no way you’d be disappointed with his work.
Juan is very professional and timely. I Highly reccomend him as a engineer and mixer. Juan has engineered and mixed over 15 songs for us and he was very pleasant to work with.
I have worked with Juan several times over the last decade in a variety of capacities. He has proved himself a valuable engineer, producer, and consultant. Through each step of the process, Juan has always been accommodating to me and my players both sonically and collaboratively. Most notably, I have worked with Juan on the production of two EPs and several singles in which he not only produced, but engineered the sessions and mixed and mastered the material through completion. In other instances, Juan provided mixing services as well as consultation on best approach and technique.
