    Excelente Ingeniero, excelente productor, excelente profesor, pero sobre todo excelente ser humano, lo que mejor sabe hacer, es hacer magia en Nomade Mix, o al frente del equipo que se le ponga al frente... Estamos trabajando en el nuevo album de ZionStereo en Colombia.

    hace 13 años trabajé por primera vez con Ariel en un disco que llegó a ser nominado a los Grammy Latino. en ese momento nos unió la casualidad. después nos volvimos a juntar para hacer varios discos más, pero ya por elección. un gran profesional, y más importante aún, una excelente persona. siempre es una alegría y una garantía de calidad.

    Ari is one of the finest engineers I've ever encountered. He is a consummate professional with incredible ears and flawless moves at the board. I had the great pleasure of working with him at The Bunker Studios in NYC last year and could not be happier with the work he did, absolutely brilliant all around from tracking to mastering, bravo Ari!

    Qué decir del querido Ari que no se haya dicho ya. Es un maestro en lo profesional y un excepcional ser humano, alguien a quien conozco hace casi 15 años y con quien me da mucho placer compartir cada nuevo proyecto.

    Makes any project studio recording sound as if you've been working at a professional studio. If you have the chance to actually record at a professional studio, then his mixes will simply blow up your mind.
    Great professionalism, flexibility and manners.
    Worked with him in four records.

    No solo es un referente para todos los ingenieros de argentina sino tambien una exelente persona. Largas charlas en su estudio Nomade Mix intercambiando y nutriendonos de data. El profesionalismo y la perserverancia ante todo.
