talented engineer, good listener and collaborator
IITRX is a consummate professional. From the get-go, he was clear about his process, rates, and timeline. He communicated with me throughout the whole project, promptly informing me of any upcoming delays and providing updates on the project regularly. He's very much worth working with and I plan to do so again going forward.

Currently, I freelance at a studio in Philadelphia and plan to move back to Atlanta.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I believe my strongest skill is vocal production. When I'm recording an artist I usually try to get the best take(s) of their performance. I also try to keep the mix in mind while recording, this thought process allows me to suggest ideas to an artist while they're recording. When I'm mixing a record, I usually fine different creative ways to make vocals sound interesting and stand out. I often am able to do this the most with R&B records.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?

A: Rap, R&B, Gospel and Latin
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Noah "40" Shebib, Jaycen Joshua, Manny Marroquin and MixedByAli to name a few mix engineers.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: As a recording engineer, I'm capture the artists energy and performance. I usually collaborate with them to get the best performance need for the song they are recording. While doing that I'm also sculpting the sound of the record with a rough mix. As a mix engineer, I'm blending and amplifying the elements I'mm given to work with. Usually I will tune and mix my clients vocals. Depending on if I am given beat trackouts, I will mix that as well.
