Ricardo Camargo on SoundBetter

Brazilian sound engineer, producer, guitar player, living in New York. Owner of TidalWav Studios and sound engineer of Stomp.

I have been working with audio for over a decade, I started in São Paulo, Brazil, working with bands and music/dubbing studios, then worked on cruise ships for 6 years running sound for all kinds of bands, musicals, ice shows, flying shows, parades, etc. After that I moved to New York City where I started my studio (www.tidalwavstudios.com), recording, producing, mixing and mastering songs, voice-overs, podcasts, and everything audio related. I spend my time between the studio and working as the sound engineer for the Off-Broadway show Stomp, either in New York or doing the US/Canada tour.

Interview with Ricardo Camargo

  1. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  2. A: What's the deadline, the budget, if they have an idea of how the mix should be, and very important, what reference tracks or bands I should use.

  3. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  4. A: I will always deliver what/when I said I would

  5. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  6. A: I love music, so been able to make a living working with music is the best thing possible

  7. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  8. A: I use a MacBook Pro with Logic Pro X running through a Focusrite interface, plugged to JBL monitors. I have a pair of Sennheiser HD headphones that I use with the Sonarworks Headphone Calibration plugin. I have the whole Slate plugin collection, as well as several Waves plugins. When I work with voice overs, I run them through Izotope RX first, to get rid of noises, clicks and pops, then export to Logic Pro X to finish the mix.

  9. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  10. A: Mostly rock, and heavier genres, but I mixed all types of music

  11. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  12. A: Very responsible. If you give me a deadline, I'll tell you if I can deliver or not. If I say yes, unless I die, I will meet the deadline. I am always learning, listening to new music, reading, talking to other engineers, so I am always improving my mixing skills

  13. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  14. A: Mainly mixing, sometimes arrangement/production. And ocasionally record guitars.

  15. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  16. A: I always try to bring something unique to every song, either in arrangement or the mix. Sometimes I feel like a song is asking for something more. But of course, there are always those awesome songs that don't need anything else to be great. I learned that there's a time to be creative and a time to play safe. But in the end is always the artirt's decision
