Walter Monterroso on SoundBetter

Hey! I've been working in this industry for a little bit more than a decade and what I've realized is that music goes beyond a # on a chart, jumping on the first commercial wave or copy/pasting a template.

Working with me means allowing yourself to explore your craft and find your genuine intentions when making music. We can create the "hypest" club song or an alternative proposal, that's your call.
So, what can I do for your music? My wide taste in music enables me to make your songs be label-less. My technical knowledge and engineer background will help you traduce your ideas into great music for you to connect with listeners. I have various trained skills to help artists/bands develop their sound and identity.
Working with a wide range of genres made me capable of combining influences, allowing me to produce world class songs that engage with several audiences.

What can I do for you?
> Produce a whole track for you or just collaborate on arrangements.
> Program drums, synths or add textures and details to your songs. I like experimenting.
> My main instrument is guitar and I've recorded hundreds of guitar tracks for different producers and artists. Also commercial (publicity) music. I have Class A gear, four guitars (for different sound palette), various pedals, two amps (Jackson Ampworks Britain 4 and Fender Twin Reverb) and UAD Amps.
> Mix your song. I like to be creative with sounds, textures and focus on emotion.
