  1. Review by Eduardo del Aguila

    Ari, gran trayectoria!, gran ingeniero y un reciente buen amigo, 100% recomendable.

  2. Review by Guilo Villar

    Conocí a Ari Lavigna para mezclar mis primeras composiciones. A través de aquella experiencia entendí un principio básico y elemental para todo ser humano que hace música: La música no va separada del sonido... Todo esto es un gran fenómeno que es capaz de alterar el orden del tiempo, del espacio, e incluso de nuestros cuerpos. Y para que ese fenómeno suceda es indispensable la visión, el oído y la sensibilidad de un ingeniero como Ariel (quién más que un ingeniero, es un superhéroe del sonido). Agradeceré por siempre a Ari por abrirme las puertas de Nomade Mix y transformarme!

  3. Review by Carlos Mena

    Ari's energy in and outside of the studio is professional, friendly, calm and focused, this makes things easier in the moment of recording or producing. His knowledge of mixing and recording is vast. Just take a moment to listen to what Ari has done!

  4. Review by Juan Quiceno

    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.

  5. Review by Pelu Romero

    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.

    Como productor musical tuve el privilegio que Ariel sea el ingeniero de mezcla en uno de mis trabajos, su profesionalismo sumó mucho a la producción la cual la dejó con excelente calidad, también es una persona sencilla y gran ser humano.

  7. Review by Nelson Foltz

    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!

  10. Review by Martin V.

    Ari has an extraordinary vision about the music (Record and Mix) on several perspectives (sound, music and technical). Also, as a producer, he reach a top quality level, that is not common to see, great ideas focused on music, art and get your work to the next level. A truly audio professional.

  11. Review by Andres Mayo

    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.

  12. Review by Martín Elizalde

    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.

  13. Review by Nicolas Shahbenderian

    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.
