Want to Sound Professional? Look no further! The Key to a Professional Sound is more about what we Know and How we Do it, and has Nothing to do with the Looks of the Studio or the price tag on our Gear.

I'm a young, upcoming, latin Music Producer, based in Mexico City. I'm up for any kind of project in any area. We'll decide, before starting, which would be more appropriate: remote, or on-site.

Even before learning to speak, I was already accurately following rhythms, like those on the Unplugged version of Hotel California. I've been playing guitar for 18 years now. Music is my lifelong passion! For the last 9 years, I've been constantly studying, learning (by doing) and mastering every single step in the process of Record Production. So, I'm totally familiar with the production process of modern, memorable musical artworks.

I'm all about passion and creativity, and I've also trained myself to be highly organized. I'm here to help you either developing your very own sound, or taking that unique sound of yours to a new level! I love teamwork, and I personally consider a fresh set of ears "platinum" ears, reason why I've carefully chosen my team of amazing professionals to count on when I'm in the Producer role.

My sound is influenced by my favorite genres: R&B, Soul, Funk, Jazz and modern Pop music; and everyday I'm more into mixing those with my Latin, Caribbean heritage.

Audio Sample: My most recent work, enjoy!

    I had a great time recording with Alex. He mixed two of my songs and I'm very happy with the result! Totally recomended.

Interview with Alex Eben

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: I have three projects in mind: La Magia, Samuelshots's first solo single, amazing musician and personal friend. Available now on all streaming platforms! I recently teamed up with Red Sombrero Records in Mexico City, they had some recordings with an international artist in the vault because they were not happy with previous mixing attempts, so I got down to work and now we're all enthused with the results! (Including the Artist) Last but not least, the Original Score for a Short Film by ImaginaCinema on environmental hazards and solutions, set around 40 years in the future. Personally, I'm moved by this kind of topics! Edited excerpt available on my Vimeo channel

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: Music Production (in general), Content Writing & Studying Web Development (Coding).

  5. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  6. A: Whichever, or even both! Because it depends on the needs of each project and we're here to be professionals.

  7. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  8. A: I just discussed it in the previous question on the biggest misconception, but I know what most artists reading this have on their minds is: can I trust you? My answer: Look, I know it's not easy to trust and decide to do business online, but one thing I can assure you is: as long as you take the time to effectively communicate with and get to know your service provider, you'll make an informed decision. Music is my passion, my life. My business is how I put food on the table. So it makes sense to say my business depends on my reputation, right? That said, I would ask you in return: you think I can afford a bad reputation?

  9. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  10. A: That an uncompelling songwriting and recording can be fixed in the mix. Don't believe that myth, if you want your music to be amazing, make it amazing right from the start. I'm here to help on any stage of the Music Production process!

  11. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  12. A: Take your time, talk to your service provider and get to an understanding before making your decision. It's best to make informed decisions, it will set the best tone and make everything smooth for both right from the start.

  13. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  14. A: I started playing guitar 18 years ago, and played with several bands in my teens. About 13 years ago, I decided to find my own sound and pursue a solo career. I discovered my true passion for audio in high school, when I had to edit the backing track for a theatrical play. So I made my decision and majored in Audio Engineering & Music Production. Started from the bottom, carrying cables, setting up mics, taking chances to Record & Mix Live Sessions for the artists when the Control Room was available at my first job: a rehearsal/recording studio. Now we're here: making music for a living!

  15. Q: How would you describe your style?

  16. A: Modern and of course unique (as we all are).

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

  18. A: As a mix engineer I enhance the message and the vision of the artist. As a musician I either complement with my own sound or tag along with what's already there. It's all about effective communication and being specific on the goals of each project.

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

  20. A: Among the most useful things I've learned: it's best to take care of the technical and customary parts first in order to have more time and less pressure, thus making the most out of our creativity.

  21. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  22. A: Computer, audio interface, keyboard, electric guitar, acoustic guitar, microphones, mouse, synth, external hard drive, monitors, headphones, Original Pro Tools, Original Plug-ins and a highly trained set of ears.

  23. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  24. A: Samuelshots! He left a review on my profile. Amazing fellow Songwriter & Musician.

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

  26. A: The emotional aspect of every song. It's amazing how telepathic music can be, and how unique each and every song is.

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

  28. A: I'll always go the extra mile to meet and excel expectations!

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

  30. A: Basically who they are as artists (vision, objectives, their message) and all examples and specifics they can provide on what they're looking for.

  31. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  32. A: Songwriting, Playing Guitar, Recording & Mixing.

  33. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  34. A: Weird Al, for the laughs!

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

  36. A: As Engineer: Recording and Mixing. As Musician: Songwriter & Session Guitarist.

  37. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  38. A: Fender Electroacoustic Guitar, Sennheiser HD 280 Pro, Apogee Duet, MacBook Pro with Logic Pro X and top-notch satellite internet.

  39. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  40. A: Trust your ears more than EQ curves and meters.

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

  42. A: R&B, Pop, Latin, Singer-Songwriter and Film Scoring is where I have the most experience.

  43. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  44. A: Eddie Kramer, Al Schmitt, Hugo Gutierrez, Gaby Cárdenas, Rick Loera, Pascual Mercury, Alejandro Fernandez, Elmar Leal, Alfredo Thomas, Jimi Hendrix, Eminem, George Benson, Sam Smith, John Legend, Justin Timberlake, Michel Jackson, Juan Luis Guerra, Orlando 'Cachaito' López, B.B.
