Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
In My Place, a humble band with no resources that I made it sound big. They were so happy with the results as much as I did.
What are you working on at the moment?
Now I'm making sound design for some commercials about Mixed Reality.
Analog or digital and why?
A mix of both, I think the digital era is making the things really great and of course it's the upcoming future, but sometimes you need the analog friend to make the things sound better.
What's your 'promise' to your clients?
All my best hardwork and creativity.
What do you like most about your job?
What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
Could I sound like this band? No, it's impossible because you have your own sound and we're going to make it big!
What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
I'm not a magician.
What questions do you ask prospective clients?
If they ever used a metronome, If they know how to tunning their instrument, and If they did a preproduction sessions.
What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
Have your mind clear before start!
If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A mic, audio interface, Mac laptop, cubase software and of course my beloved headphones.
What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
I've been doing music productions since 2008.
How would you describe your style?
Mmm, a little commercial and a little rough.
Which artist would you like to work with and why?
I love to work with singers, I think the most of the singers have a special potential inside and they don't know that it's in there.
Can you share one music production tip?
I'm consider myself an expert in vocals. I love to make a lot of layers in the background depending on the part of the track to give that background that the vocals needs.
What type of music do you usually work on?
Metal and rock mostly.
What's your strongest skill?
Creativity. I love to imagine a song on its biggest potential.
What do you bring to a song?
I love to produce meanwhile I'm working on a song, I don't like just to operate and say of this is what you wanted and here you have it.
What's your typical work process?
Firstly, I used to talk with the musicians what hey expect for and what they really wants, I'm trying all the time to translate what they have in their minds to the production. Later and just later when me and the musicians have this simbiosis we start to work.
Tell us about your studio setup.
In my studio I have everything to produce an entire album from the beginning to the end, combining analog gear with digital up-to-date gear. I have AKG, Rode, Shure mics to record drums, guitars, etc. Analog and digital preamps, analog compressor and a powerful sound station combining Mac with Cubase.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
I like musicians that produces their own work, I think that the owner of some music piece is the only one who knows what they really want, the producer only can make shape on that and make it sounds as great as possible.
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
I use to do sound design for any kind of work (commercials, motion graphics, corporate clips, etc) and music producing for bands mostly.
