Patricio Böttcher on SoundBetter

With years of experience and a passion for music, I am committed to bringing creativity and expertise to your tracks. I will work closely with you to ensure that your vision for the song is realized. When you partner with me, you can expect a high level of professionalism and attention to detail.

I also put a big focus on the quality of my recordings; I record in a acoustically treated studio and I use the following gear:
- AKG C414 condenser microphones
- Electro Voice RE20 dynamic microphones
- AEA R84A ribbon microphones
- Universal Audio 4-710d preamps
- Universal Audio Apollo Twin audio interface

I play soprano, alto, tenor and baritone saxophone, clarinet, bass clarinet, flute, piccolo, alto flute, bass flute and wooden flutes. I also record: Trumpet, flugelhorn, trombone, french horn and tuba.

If you have a specific melody or idea, I can record exactly what you ask for, or I can also contribute my own ideas along the way. If you don't have anything specific in mind, no worries, you can leave it completely up to me to create a melody or an improvised solo for your track. I can also compose, arrange and record horn sections with any combination of horns.

I can also deliver your tracks really fast if you’re in a hurry.

All my work is one time fee/work for hire, which means you own the rights and royalties of the recording.

Here's a short video reel:

    A very pleasant and highly professional collaboration with Patricio!
    The song was very complex with central African rhythms and melodies from Congo.
    Patricio played tenor sax and coordinated the recording of trumpet and trombone.
    Thank you for another great and successful collaboration.
    See you very soon with the next song!
    Cheers!

    Patricio provided an extremely fast turnaround (I hired ten people for this project and his tracks arrived first), easy communication, and honestly more than I asked for -- multiple mic options, etc. I wholeheartedly recommend!

    Second time working with Patricio on an original tune, and he killed it again. I don't know if you can go wrong with this guy. Responsive, professional, and great sound (and in both cases for me there was no need for revisions).

    Patricio is amazing.
    Not only a true professional player (and with fantastic recording quality), he works fast and is a great communicator
    Really brought a level of satisfaction and light to the my song.
    His efficiency and keen ear to detail has earned I respect
    & admiration indeed.
    Now looking forward to engaging him again in the near future.
