A: A project that I keep with love was 11 years ago, I had to record the sounds of a shirt factory, and compose a song with the sounds of that factory synchronously with a video.I'm surprised that they still have it on their website.

A: I started in 2003 as soon as I finished my higher studies in sound.I started my first studio 17 years ago.

A: What I usually achieve in each song is clarity, punch and dimension. That everything sounds its in place.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: The first thing I do is listen to the song well, if I have to mix it I see that each track is at a suitable level, phase etc. Then I insert everything into my summing mixer,It depends on how you want to sound, I put it in transparent mode or with the color of the SSL 4000 and from there I start to process all the elements of the song. If I have to master a song first I listen to the song and observe the levels phase and after that I apply my chain, normally in M / S mode passed through by my dangerous liason.
