Specialized in recording melodies, improvised solos and horn sections. From a 1920’s dixie clarinet to a modern sax hook and everything in between. I have a great amount of experience recording and would love to be a part of your project!
I play soprano, alto, tenor and baritone saxophone, clarinet, bass clarinet, flute and piccolo. I also work with a great team of players to provide all the horns you need at the same place: Trumpet, flugelhorn, trombone, french horn, tuba, alto flute, bass flute and harmonica.
I record my woodwinds with AKG c414 condenser microphones and an Audient iD22 Interface.
You can ask me to play a specific line or you can ask 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 guarantee professional quality work that will exceed your expectations and I can deliver your tracks really fast if needed.

I brought in Patricio to play Sax, Clarinet and Flute and he's impressive with all three. It really added to the project and took it the next level. Great pro.
Beautiful tone, did an additional take to give me EXACTLY what I needed. Fast turnaround. Couldn't be happier!
I appreciated the quick turnaround. Recording sounded great.
Brilliant... I had quite a specific project... bit weird, nostalgic vibe and Patricio picked it up right away. melody plus improv solo. first take made it into the song. Can fully recommend!
Patricio played an awesome tenor sax solo on our song. He has a great understanding of harmony and had the right "jazzy ears" for our project :) The sound of his sax is very warm and clean, absolutely love his work.
Was a pleasure and definitely willing to repeat!
It was a pleasure working with Patricio!
Fast, communicative, but best of all, the alto sax track he recorded for me was awesome. :-)
Super happy with the saxophone take Patricio recorded for my track. Thank you! Would love to work on more stuff soon!
Working with Patricio was phenomenal. This was my first time using SoundBetter so I was nervous about putting my trust in someone over the internet to record parts for my score.
Patricio was easy going, fast to respond, helped with sheet music and arrangement suggestions, and, of course, performed his parts with passion and accuracy.
I highly recommend Patricio.
Working with Patricio was great! I asked him to play 2 subtle solo's and 1 improvisational solo on one of my longer prog-rock tracks, and he just nailed them. He sent me a couple takes so that I could have options. Awesome! I would definitely work with Patricio in the future. 5 Stars!
Patricio was the first musician I had the pleasure of working with on Soundbetter, and I could not be more thrilled! He is an extremely talented saxophonist and the other horn players he works with were excellent! He is also very professional, efficient, and communicative. He got my tracks completed and returned to me very quickly, and was willing to make revisions as needed. Patricio is the first musician I will go to for any of my future projects, and I recommend him 100%! Don’t miss out!
I've had an absolutely great experience with Patricio. He was quick to respond and deliver my tracks. He was truly professional and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for pro Clarinet and Horn tracks.
Great player and person, he did an Amazing sax solo in one of our Song, with the perfect mood! We're really happy to have worked with him.
Fantastic work, Patricio is very talented and musical. An an absolute expert who imparts a special tone and emotion in to his playing that will elevate your music. Highly recommended.
Patricio was great. He hit all my notes and delivered a professional sounding track on a really quick turn around. Would definitely hire him again.
Patricio just executed another amazing job & fast too. If I could rate him higher than 5 stars I would!
Great soloist, great job and a lot of availability!
Great work from a very talented Sax player!
Worked very well, even suggested phenomenal musicians to contribute to the track, will definitely stay in contact!
Knocked this project out on first try within a day with very quality work.
Great to work with, fast turnaround, nailed 3 quality projects on first try, very talented-- I definitely will be returning for future projects.
great professional, fast and accurate. great Patricio
Excellent musician and great communicator - Thank you Patricio !
Very professional! Patricio performed even better than I had hoped for. He immediately understood the nature of the song and made a great performance. Also a very quick delivery time and a high sound quality of his recorded files. Very good!
Patricio is for me a real musical encounter. Thanks to him to help my tracks climbing a step ahead.
Patricio did a perfect job, and knocked it out in a matter of hours. Total pro!
Another track with Patricio. Perfect wind ensemble played with flutes and clarinets, and a wonderful solo of bass clarinet! Beautiful.
Once again Patricio did an amazing job! Such a professional besides being a very nice guy.
When someone plays your music, sometimes there's a thrill. It's the case with Patricio and its fabulous playing. We are working on three tracks. In a hurry to do more.
Patricio is a great talent, with exceptional ear. Easy and flexible to work with, even though my vision was kind of blurry. A dream!
Patricio is an absolute professional and a great musician ! I would recommend working with him in a heartbeat.
Another perfect job - both times I've worked with Patricio, the first takes have been spot on. Not only that, but the recording quality is great (including the space he records in), and he was able to work with a super fast turnaround.
I very highly recommend Patricio!
An absolutely stunning woodwind player! Patricio played 8 parts on a piece I'd arranged, including: piccolo, flute, clarinets, alto sax, tenor sax, and baritone sax. He played them all with real joy, and truly brought the song to life.
I wouldn't hesitate to ask Patricio for woodwind parts in future, and would highly recommend him for your project.
Patricio is professional and a pleasure to work with!
Another great job with Patricio, and another great woodwind section - thank you Patricio!
Patricio did a fantastic job performing a woodwind section on my song. He was friendly and quick, and the recordings were beautiful. Highly recommended to all! A+++++
