Alan Garcia on SoundBetter

I know how much you care about your music. Let's work on your art and make sure it truly represents you as an artist. I've been Mixing and Mastering records for the for more than 15 years.

With every song, my goal is to make it create a universe of it's own, having the listener to feel immersed in it from top to bottom, keeping the artist vision and also offering my knowledge and skills to bring out what's best for the song, be it rock, pop or any genre.

My intention is to give every artist a sound that they feel proud to call their own, and still manage to remain transparent and true to the heart of the song and the atmosphere created by it.

I'd love to work on your song and give it the attention and care it needs so that the drums are punchy, the vocal upfront, guitars are wide or whatever it takes to make it pop out of the speakers.

Trabajemos en tu arte y asegúrate de que su sonido te represente como artista. He mezclado y masterizado discos desde hace 15 años.

Con cada canción, mi meta es que tenga su propio universo, y que el escucha se sumerja en él desde el primer acorde hasta el final de la canción, y que a la vez refleje la visión del artista, aportando mis conocimientos, técnicas y habilidades para sacar lo mejor de cada producción, sin importar el género.

Mi intención es darle a cada artista con quien trabajo un sonido del cual se sienta orgulloso y a la vez ser lo más transparente posible.
