Barcelona based Mixer Engineer and Producer. I rather have a mix who gives the emotions the artist wants than a perfect sounding mix who gives you nothing. I always focus on the emotional part of the songs, the ones who can give you goosebumps, the ones who can make you dance or make you cry. I want to accompany the listener through de song making
I have my own studio called Camaleó Estudi de Gravació where I do all my mixing and recording. I have a great collection of analog outboard who I cant live without. I love character and attitude to the sounds. I'm creative and fearless when mixing.
I also run an independent label called Luup Records.

Reviews (3)Endorse Aleix Iglesias
Aleix mixed our new album and he totally killed it. He turn our boring rough mixes into something exciting, with a lot of impact, depth and dynamics. Great professional.
Aleix produced and mixed my debut album which I'm really proud of. He turned my demos into big songs, making them sound exactly how they sounded in my head, sometimes even better. His work ethic is brilliant, he is determinated to always improve and take everything a step futher. Highly recommend.
Aleix Iglesias produced "Seasons", my first EP released in 2014 as well as "Cotton Candy", my first album released in October 2015 and I couldn't be happier with the result. Aleix has the ability to find the perfect sounds for each song. Every session is highly productive thanks to his great communication skills and his passion for his job.
Interview with Aleix Iglesias
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I really like to work super fast in the beginning. I like to don't overthink it. I rather be guided by my instinct and feelings about the song. I do the most of the balance, eq and compression at this point. When I have the big picture as I like, I focus in small things and subtle effects. I may do some automation specially with the purpose of compelling the listener and make the different transition of the song interesting and exiting. Afterwards I focus on the vocal. I do all the rides it needs. Considering how I use to approach vocal compression I also need to check "s", breaths and other weird sound. At this point I use to take a little break just for recover some of the perspective that I may have lost. I check the mix again and I do the changes that I feel it needs. Sometimes, at this point I do more automation to enhance the excitement and emotion of the song. When I'm happy, I print it ;)
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Is hybrid a good answer? I love the sound of my summing box and the rest of my hardware. I can’t live without this bad boys. The artist I work love too, but I have to be able to do as many revisions we need. So what I do is: when I have a good balance and the song feels good to me and the artist I print individual stems with all of my hardware. Afterwards I’m completely ITB, so I can recall with seconds.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: What I love about my job is it doesn't feel like a job. I love being in the studio helping other artists to achieve what they want. There isn’t a greatest moment in this business than seeing someone getting thrilled after listening his mix. This is priceless.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Listening to what the artist wants. I always need to know what a song is about, what the story is telling. I think developing a great communication with the artist is crucial for the best results.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Pro Tools 12. Antelope Audio Orion 32 as AD/DA. Inward connections MIX690 as summing box. I use up to 16 hardware inserts such as: 1176s, LA2A, Chandler Little Devils EQs and Comps, Tree Audio The Branch, SSL EQ, Tube Tech PE1A and ME1B, Thermionic Culture Phoenix, Neve 1073 LB EQ, Distressor EL8X or API 527s. I use NS10 with a sub and Dynadio BM15 for monitoring. C24 for automation and plugin control.
