Ryan Sanchez on SoundBetter

My name is Ryan Sanchez and I am a professional recording, mixing, mastering engineer and music producer. I have worked on many high profile projects including The Walking Dead, Outlander, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, 10 Cloverfield Lane, God of War and more. I have an immense love and passion for film scores and records across all genres of music!

I have been working as a professional audio engineer for over 10 years now. The majority of my success has come from music for TV shows, feature films, and videogames under Emmy award winning composer, Bear McCreary. In records, I have worked with Crooks & Castles, Kobe Honeycutt, Joey Djia, and more.

I consistently work under strict deadlines and understand how to work efficiently under pressure. I am not happy with a recording, mix or master unless my client is! I love collaborating with fellow creatives and truly enjoy the process of perfecting the music we work on together. I have the ability to deliver in Stereo, 4.0, 5.0, 5.1, and 360 for VR.

I am confident that I can work within your budget no matter what the project entails and I look forward to working with you soon!

    I've worked with Ryan many times, on both film/tv scores and songs. He is an excellent engineer and a great collaborator. His versatility is a particular strength in film scoring, which often requires a wide variety of instruments and styles. And his attitude is terrific - he's always on-the-ball while staying positive and level-headed.

    I’ve had the great privilege of working with Ryan on a variety of projects over the last two or three years, and I’m constantly impressed by his creativity, efficiency, and professionalism. He cultivates a positive studio environment, and genuinely cares about each performer's individual requirements. An all around outstanding artist and person.

    Ryan has both mixed as well as mastered some of my albums. Ryan is so talented, both as a mixer, composer and in mastering. He has a positive attitude. He really gets the sound you're going for and gives all of himself to a project and works hard. He is open minded and brilliant. I highly recommend RSL studios. My experience has been great!

    I have worked with Ryan on many overdub sessions the past few years and he is always very efficient and fun to work with; always ready to lend an ear to the production. As a player it is a real plus to have an engineer on the other side of the glass that has a great attitude and Ryan is one of those people!

    Ryan is a real pro. He's crazy talented and a great guy to hang with. He's great at contributing creatively to many types of genres and styles. Ultimately, with him you get the whole package, I'd recommend him to anyone, as long as I don't have a project I need him for. :-)

    Ryan possesses those elusive qualities so desired in ones colleagues; patience, an easy-going nature, and deference for others. On top of that he is a talented and tireless worker. I have worked on several huge projects with Ryan with grueling deadlines. He always manages to put people first all while delivering a stellar product.

    Having worked with Ryan for over two years on countless projects, I can attest that his speed and precision while engineering are extremely impressive to witness - yet, he manages to make the studio a very warm and welcoming place. His attitude and professionalism are top notch. I highly recommend working with Ryan.

    I've known Ryan a long time and have recorded everything from music to voiceover for videos with him. He's a hard worker with a positive attitude, a great ear and is immensely dedicated to his craft. His turn around time is fast, and he will keep working with you until you are both satisfied. Great engineer and also a fantastic, creative musician.

    Working with Ryan Sanchez was great! I was impressed with the quality of his mixes, but even more impressed with the fact that he was able to keep up this quality no matter how many tracks I gave him to mix, or how short the deadline. A great guy that I definitely plan to work with again.

    If you're looking for an awesome studio experience with a producer/engineer that is great to work with, Ryan Sanchez is your guy. I'm a composer working in Los Angeles on several major television shows, and have worked with Ryan on every single one. His professionalism and work ethic is unsurpassable, not to mention the great energy he brings.

    My name is Kory McMaster. I am a composer and orchestrator based out of Los Angeles. I recently hired Ryan to record and mix the theme song for "Kinda Funny: The Animated Series". His mixing was top-notch, his turnaround was faster than we even needed it to be, and he was an absolute joy to work with. I could not be happier. Highly recommend!

Interview with Ryan Sanchez

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: I'm proud of all my projects! Whether I'm recording musicians, mixing/mastering, or producing, I take pride in whatever part of the process I contributed to.

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: Outlander and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D

  5. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  6. A: I do believe the digital way of doing things is much more efficient and today's plugins are sounding closer and closer to the real thing! However, analog still sounds the best overall to me as there is just something extra special that you can't completely get from plugins.

  7. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  8. A: What are your rates? It depends on the amount of work needed to complete your project, however I am very reasonable and am open to negotiation. What have you worked on recently? http://www.imdb.com/name/nm4694876/ Can I hear some of your mixes, masters, or songs you have written? Yes, I have plenty of work on Apple Music and Spotify to check out. I'd be happy to send links to those! Do I have to pay you upfront or after a project is completed? Can you give me a general idea of what my project will cost? If you have an extensive project such as a full length album or score, then I expect a negotiable percentage paid up front before we begin working. The rest is expected to be paid upon completion of your project. This applies to projects with an all in flat fee. If we begin to establish a reliable and consistent relationship, then I become more flexible with payment for my services. If it's a project we have negotiated based on an hourly rate, then I require a 3 hour minimum for each recording session you book with me. This must be paid at the end of each session. The amount of hours needed to complete a mix vary based on the number of tracks in your project and the quality of the sounds used. I am open to both flat rates or hourly rates for a mix. Can I bring friends to the sessions I book? Yes, absolutely! Is smoking allowed inside? Absolutely not! What forms of payment do you accept? PayPal, Venmo, Checks, Cash

  9. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  10. A: I will give your project a 110% effort and will do whatever it takes to make it sound great. I will be respectful of your vision and will be as flexible as possible with you.

  11. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  12. A: I love what I do and have a very strong passion for music. I love the creative and collaborative aspect when working with my clients. I especially love to push the boundaries of the creative process and experiment.

  13. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  14. A: The most difficult thing is communicating exactly how an engineer records and mixes a piece of music. The records and film scores you hear on the radio, on an album or on a feature film take hours and hours of hard work from the writing and recording process to the final steps in the mastering process. Engineering is a very specific skill that requires a high level of attention to detail and only comes with experience. There are no shortcuts in getting a great final product.

  15. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  16. A: What is your budget? What are you hoping to accomplish with my services? Do you have a specific deadline? How flexible are you with a session date and what times of the day are you available to work?

  17. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  18. A: I started playing guitar and bass at age 10 and then began playing for various bands throughout high school. I eventually picked up piano as well. I started interning at various professional recording studios during my freshman year of college and began learning from working industry professionals. l attended The University of Southern California (USC) and majored within the notorious Thornton School of Music. I have worked at some of the best recording studios in Los Angeles over the past 8 years.

  19. Q: How would you describe your style?

  20. A: Big, Cinematic, Atmospheric mixes and production

  21. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  22. A: Talented and hard working individuals who are open to collaboration. Being able to share your opinions honestly are crucial to the final product!

  23. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  24. A: Picking the right sounds and live elements for your song is crucial!

  25. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  26. A: Film scores, Hip Hop, R&B, and Pop music.

  27. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  28. A: Recording, mixing, mastering, and producing.

  29. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  30. A: High quality audio, professional mix and master, high quality recordings of vocals and live instruments. I also bring an experienced 2nd opinion and executive producing skills. I write music with artists as well, so I bring my own style of production to their songs.

  31. Q: What's your typical work process?

  32. A: Totally depends on the project.

  33. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  34. A: Too many to list!

  35. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  36. A: Recording, mixing, mastering, and producing.

Terms Of Service
