Hello, My name is Maccoy Abeyta, I am a producer, and a Mixing and Mastering Engineer. I am experienced and professionally trained in both Pro Tools and FL Studio, as well as several industry standard plugin suites.
I am a Senior in High-School trying to make my way in the music industry. I am an artist myself and I always strive to make music sound the best it possibly can. My goal for 2022 is to create a larger portfolio and attract loyal clients.
I have been to a trade school learning both Audio Production and Live Sound and Event Management. I was taught by Randall Frazier, one of Colorado's most accomplished engineers, even making Westword's list of best audio engineers in 2018 (https://www.westword.com/music/denvers best-sound-engineers-in-2018-10161578).
And by Ron Gordon, an engineer who's been in the business for 30+ years and has been teaching for 12. He was voted best sound man in Colorado in 2007.(https://www.westword.com/best-of/2007/arts and-entertainment/best-sound-man-5156106)
I am self taught in many of the advanced techniques I use on my own. I am passionate about music, and I intend to continue my studies in college this fall.
I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

Interview with Prod. Asphodel
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: My newest EP "I Don't Think I'm A Good Person" is a very special project to me, I learned more in the process of making the EP than any other project and it resulted in being not only a very personal project but a developmental project that I don't think would've come without it.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Analog because of the rich and warm tone, there's a reason everyone is after it. Though I work with digital more because that's the limitation to the equipment I currently have.

A: I promise I will always put my best foot forward and make the best possible song I can.

Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I typically start off by listening to the stems of the record I'm working on, then reference tracks that I think fit the song well. from there I do some level matching to figure out how I want the levels to sound in the end product. I then mix the song. and if the client asks for it, master it. I send back both a mixed version and (if asked for) a mastered version to the client.

A: I have a home studio, nothing crazy, but it does the job very well
