Classic top-Quality sound, Mixing and Mastering Engineer, also Producer and Ghost Producer.
Hey, thanks for reading this.
I've been in the world of music since I was 12 years old when a relative made me visit a record studio, and all I can say is that it was magic!, it opened a new whole world that made me focus on it 100% since that moment, so I did everything on my life to be able to own my own recording studio, and to be able to do what I really love: music.
I've been releasing my own music for a while, and I spent the last 8 years of my life preparing myself to be the best sound engineer and producer out there, studying 2 degrees and 2 masters at Berklee and being super lucky having some of the best teachers in the world.
You can count with me to do any track you want in any genre (as a producer or ghost-producer) and to be your master and mixing engineer.
You can count with me to treat your track as a baby, I will focus on every single detail, it doesnt matter how small it is, and I won't be happy and I won't consider it finished until you are 100% happy with it.
Later I've been working on Latin music, Reggaeton and Dembow, includying top artists.
Thanks in advance for this opportunity,

Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Sadly no, but I'd likely recommend anyone I know he/she is a good professional!
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Analog, I don't like mixing and mastering digitally because there are many screens, plugins and stuff, I preffer to sit calmly with a coffee, listen to the track calmly, and just keep working on it using analog gear, I feel way more conected to the track this way.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: At least we will both learn from each other!
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I feel like it's giving birth and educating a track, until it's fully grown and can be released to be shown to the rest of the world, also I learn a lot from my clients.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Could I sound like X?, X has a huge career, just try to avoid focusing on sounding like someone, be patient, and get your sound, you will be surprised how fast you forget about sounding like X.

A: I never felt like there are misconceptions.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What was your idea when producing this track?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: I know you are in a hurry and maybe you don't have time, but crossing a few words with anyone you are looking to hire, even if you won't pick that person, could give you a lot of surprises.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: my iMac Pro, my Ableton Push 2, my Audient ASP4816, My Retro Instruments Revolver and my Aurora Audio GT4-2.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Since I was 12, I studied another career, but I wasn't able to move from music, so here I am :)
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Warm (even if that word seems hated today) and I try always to give a ear hug to everyone.

A: Anyone, I love music, love what I do, and I want to share and enjoy it with any artist that gives me the chance to work with them.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Don't trust your eyes, trust your ears.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Lately I've been working mostly with big artists in Dominican Republic (where I moved recently), so latin music, reggaeton and dembow, but I always keep producing other genres to stay strong on them.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I guess listening and patience, so I always try to give the perfect results.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Anything!, I love recording day by day sounds and evolving them to a full song.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I just sit, load my production template on Ableton, and begin adding samples that later I delete to add custom MIDI melodies, bass, etc... But I always begin with samples to get a idea for the track.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: It's pretty basic, an iMac Pro (18 cores and 64GB ram), Audient ASP 4816 (Console), SSL Fusion, Heritage Audio HA-609A, Retro Instruments Revolver, Antelope Orion 32+, Shadow Hills Dual Vandergraph 500, WES Audio Hyperion 500, Elysia 500 Karacter, Aurora Audio GT4-2, Warm Audio Buss Compressor, A few channel strips that aren't worth mentioning, Chandler Mini Rack Mier (my console group outputs are conected to this inputs so I get it's amazing sound!), Dangerous Audio 2-Bus+ (that sweet transformer sound!), Manley Pultec, many mics, mostly from Telefunken (4x TF39 and 2x TF51), and a whole sound treated studio :)
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Nearly every sound engineer, that magic they show making a track sound properly and nicely, with everything on its place, is something I always love to watch.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Usually I produce a track/beat, then mix and master it.
