Caio Molena

Recording/Mixing Engineer

Caio Molena on SoundBetter

I am a strong believer that mixing and recording is an artform. I dont think anyone can achieve a "good" sound if they are not passionate about what they do. I am in love with music and especially mixing, recording and experimenting. If you share the same perspective as mine, check out my profile, we might end up getting along pretty well =)

My name is Caio, I'm a recording/mixing and electronics engineer from Brazil. I have 2 years of experience recording and mixing and I also work with a collective in which I record and mix live performances of local bands. I've been in independent bands since 2009 and today I'm lead singer and lead guitar player from an indie/alternative rock band.

I absolutely love bands that sound like real bands. And by real, I dont mean "raw" or unproduced, I mean bands that are true to their sound and identity.

I always hear what the client wants and I try to get as close as possible to what it is being wished. I also like to mix relatively fast.
