    I know that whenever I send him a production to master, that it will always come back sounding pristine and beautiful. Mauricio is also very consistent in his turnaround time.

Interview with Mauricio Gargel audio mastering

What do you like most about your job?
The fact that I can help musicians improve their art.
What questions do you ask prospective clients?
I like to know what are the final media for distribution so I can prepare the masters accordingly.
What's your strongest skill?
Critical listening.
Analog or digital and why?
It does not matter. I like analog because of the interface you have with the equipment... the ergonomics of 'real' gear are better if compared with a mouse. I really love the precision of digital processor, though...
If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
5!!! that is a lot:) Assuming we have electricity in the island, all I need is my speakers, converters and perhaps a good equalizer.
What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
I have been doing this for over 15 years. I started as an assistant engineer in a local studio and grew into mastering naturally.
What type of music do you usually work on?
As a mastering engineer, I think it is important to understand every style and update yourself on the trends and challenges in music production. I work on projects that range from acoustic jazz to electronic music.
What do you bring to a song?
Honestly, I don't think I bring anything to a song that was not there in the first place. All I do is bring to light the original intentions of the production that for some reason got hidden in the mix.
