I'm very passionate about what I do. I love to create music, either through writing, recording or mixing. I always set myself to create something special and unique. You can expect a lot of hard work, creativity and a strong will to thrive and improve.
I'm currently proving two main services:
DRUM RECORDINGS: I’m a 13-year drummer, with a considerable experience in writing, recording and playing live, and by working on the field of Music Production for the past few years, I've gained a lot of know-how when it comes to recording and getting the right drum sound for mixing. You can expect a lot of creativity, dynamism, musical sensitivity and just a good, full and professional-sounding drum recording. To do that, I have a full equipped and prepared studio, besides a lot of cool and top-notch pieces of gear. I feel comfortable working somewhere between Rock, Punk and Pop. I can either write a drum line for you, keeping in mind any instruction/reference you provide, or I can record a line previously determined by you.
MIXING: A crucial step where the possibilites are endless, and where you truly shape the sound of everything. While mixing, I always try to combine two major aspects: the creative side and the technical side. It's not easy to be creative and create something original, but it's even harder to do that while trying to achieve a technically balanced and good mix, in terms of frequencies and levels. I'm experienced in working with low budget recordings; I've come across a lot of messed up tracks and I've made them work. If that's your case, I'm always up to discuss how much I think I can fix or work around.

Terms of Service
For drum recordings, since I make sure we are on the same page before I record anything, there isn't usually a need for revisions. For mixing & mastering, I allow up to 3 revisions.
Reviews of Francisco Cristina
Francisco is very easy to work with. He remains focused on understanding the kind of sound you are looking for and is always open to feedback and discussion. His deliveries are always on schedule and he takes you through his thought processes while working on your music. I have utmost regards for his professional conduct.
It was a pleasure working with Francisco. He was easy to communicate with and did everything he could to meet my expectations. He is also a drummer and can record and mix a drum track from scratch. If you both look in the same direction he can make your mix sound as good as your recorded tracks allow.
Thank you, Francisco.
Francisco... A very talented drummer and musician overall... He worked on my studio as engineer...Great great job, and a very nice guy... He"s also a great producer on his own things.... Conclusion.... A man with a great future ... And a respectable present already.... Not so good like lead singer :-) ...
While he worked on my studio, Francisco's attitude and behavior were impeccable. He has a bright future ahead of him.
Francisco remixed one of my songs a couple of months ago. He did a great job, I was so impressed! He was really inventive and gave it a complete new twist. I highly recommend him!!
