I'm a sound and audio engineer, i currently working as a freelance. I have worked in different studios of mixing and mastering in Medellin, additionally i also have experience working for different artists in LATAM, USA and another contries for some time.
Mixing is the process where we will create that coherence that we seek between our tracks, we will make each and one of our instruments have a place in the audible spectrum, that is, that they all have the presence we need and no sound is hidden when we listen to the set of the tracks to our song.
Once we have each of our tracks "in place", occupying its place in the audible spectrum and without "stepping on" between them, we can allow ourselves to make a final touch-up by attacking all these tracks through the master channel, with the in order to generate better coherence, and in most cases, achieve a higher volume level.
When working on an album, mastering engineers usually perform this process on all tracks equally, in order to guarantee that they will all have the same volume, ensuring that the album has a specific logic and coherence.
I haved worked for some years for some different artists from several countries of Latam, North america (USA,Canada, etc.), Europe, etc. I study sound engineer in the University of San Buenaventura and i specialized in mixing and mastering in El Faro studio.
