My experience with Auragraph was absolutely fantastic. I hired him to master an album I had produced and was blown away by what he was able to do. My mixes became so much fuller, clearer, and lounder. Anyone looking for professional sound engineering should go to Auragraph.
Carlos helped me take my mixes to a place I could have never imagined. Really polished the sound and helped clean up all the nitty gritty areas to make my tracks shine.
Interview with AURAGRAPH
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise to work with you to get the desired results that you are seeking.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Mixing shouldn't drastically change the way your song sounds (unless you want it to do that!) Mixing should bring out more space and dynamics in the song as well as glue the song together.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Attention to detail
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: My typical work process includes sculpting and EQing tracks to make each sound live in their own space, as well as adding dynamics and character by bussing out different components to outboard gear and bringing them back in the box for additional warmth or saturation.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I really enjoy seeing musicians or other music professionals that do their own thing and are unique instead of trying to sound like everyone else.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I like to work with both, and especially love the sound of analog and digital elements in a song mixed together !
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have been recording and mixing music for over 10 years. I began in high school by recording and engineering my band, and kept up with it throughout college. I moved out to LA and was fortunate to land my first job working in the music side of the film industry and learned a lot through that process. Now I am thankful to be mixing full time !
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: My style tends to lean towards a more analog / warmer sound. If you're looking for authentic sounding vintage tone, please feel free to reach out !
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I usually work on electronic music, typically more experimental or darker sounding, but have worked on all genres !
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I can bring depth, dynamics, and warmth to your song.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My studio set up is an array of analog and digital synthesizers including the Roland SH101, TR606, TR808, Prophet 600 and more. I run my audio through my stereo pair of 511 Neve pre's and if I desire some analog saturation, my Otari MX5050 tape machine.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: The most common type of work I do is mixing and engineering work.
