    Another great session with Jacobo... I came looking for congas on a track, but he went above and beyond and built an entire percussion arrangement that was just amazing. He's super creative and knows these instruments so well. Looking forward to the next one!

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

  12. A: I get the song without percussions, or with midi percussions. Then I suggest which percussion instruments to add, and in what style to do it. Sometimes I send examples that I recorded, or famous songs. Then I make the client an offer with the price, usually between $60 and $120, depending on the time and number of instruments. After I get the approval of the client, I record and deliver the job in the next three days maximum. Then we check if it needs revisions. Finally the client gives me his/her feedback.

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

  20. A: Always record the main percussion instrument (like conga or drumset) then do the other simpler instruments. Keep the fills very simple if you use many percussion instruments!

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

  22. A: I bring dinamism, I can make it sound "full", I can add creative grooves, creative ways of using an instrument. I can add things that normally a producer who is not a latin percussionist, would not think about, but they would sound really good.
