Javier Parés

Recording & Mixing engineer

Javier Parés on SoundBetter

Recording and mixing engineer from Buenos Aires

I started in 2010 in my home studio recording friends while I was a student, shortly after I decided to quit my office job to dedicate myself 100% to audio.
I worked for many bands and sound companies as a live sound engineer, this was very useful for me to get more bands to record.
In 2017 I started working in "El pie recording studios" as an assistant in parallel to my work as a recording engineer in my own studio.
This gave me the opportunity to start working together with the studio owner (Alejandro Lerner) as a stage assistant and then as a monitor engineer at his shows.
Currently I am still working on "El pie" but most of the time as a recording engineer.

Interview with Javier Parés

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

  2. A: Give it life, take to the maximum what each part of the song wants to express and generate emotion in the people who listen to it

  3. Q: What's your typical work process?

  4. A: My mixing process has a first version "MIX V0" where the song approaches (without many effects and automation) to see if it is what the client is really looking for. Once this version is approved, the most exhaustive mix will begin and it will be sent as "MIX V1" version, and if necessary any correction will be made on this version (included up to MIX V3)

  5. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  6. A: My studio setup is a Antelope Orion 32+ with Neumann KH 310D monitors, i have some outboard gear like Distressors, LA2A, Chandler Opto compressor, Clariphonic EQ, and some others.

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: Record using many processes, mix in the box (processing audios with outboard gear)

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

  10. A: Listen to new music every day

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

  12. A: Usually Rock / Pop

  13. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  14. A: My strength is to give it a lot of space in the songs, 3D sound.
