Get your songs that polish needed to take your music to the next level!

Hello! My name is Bryan. I am based out of Los Angeles where the hub of rock and pop music exist. My background is pop/rock and electronic/dance. I am also a classically trained pianist where I earned my Bachelor's in Music - Piano Performance. Afterwards, I attended the film scoring program at USC where I earned my Advance Studies Certificate in Scoring for Motion Pictures and Television. I then got an internship at Media Venture (now Remote Control Productions). It was there that I got to witness some of the world's greatest talent in the studio. I was especially fond of the mixing and mastering process that went on there. At that point, I realized that the audio engineering techniques that went on for film music also applied to rock and pop music. All of these genres have allowed me to develop an extraordinary ear for various genres.

I offer mixing and mastering services. I will take the artist's song and after repeated listens will evaluate what needs to be done. Be it more reverb on the vocals to achieve that dream-pop sound or to punch up the drums on that rock track. I have numerous experience mixing and mastering songs of various genres. My specialization is approaching each mix differently depending on it's genre and the needs of the artists.

I will give each client the utmost attention they need for me to realize the sonic potential of their song!

Interview with Bryan Galvez

  1. Q: What's your typical work process?

  2. A: I listen to the rough mix to get a feel for it. Then I load up the multitrack session and start to chisel away at the song until the sonic potential is revealed.

  3. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  4. A: Both! Analog and digital have their place in the recorded music industry. I would say analog for synthesizers, 2 inch reel-to-reel tape machines as well as guitar tube amps. But digital is perfect for editing precision and long term storage.

  5. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  6. A: I promise to give each and every client my best work possible!

  7. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  8. A: I like taking another artist's song and seeing what I, as a fresh pair of ears, can do to enhance it's potential.

  9. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  10. A: What are you looking for in your song? How do you want it to sound? Modern, old-school, mellow or in-your-face?

  11. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  12. A: Give me as many notes as possible regarding what you are looking for in your song. That way I'll be able to start off on the right path.

  13. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  14. A: ARP Odyssey synthesizer, Macbook Pro running Logic Pro X, Roland TR-808 drum machine, Korg SQ-1 sequencer and Yamaha NS-10 studio monitors.

  15. Q: How would you describe your style?

  16. A: My style is very unique in that I do not mix in the conventional manner. For example, just because I'm mixing a traditional rock band doesn't mean that I'll make the final mix necessarily natural-sounding.

  17. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  18. A: The Weeknd. He is the perfect blend of the vintage and modern sound.

  19. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  20. A: Don't let the technical details get in the way of the music.

  21. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  22. A: I like to put my own sonic stamp on the song. Ultimately, the track is up to the artist so I will make sure that they are 100% satisfied with my work.

  23. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  24. A: I have a strong sense of the big picture of what a song needs. I then zoom in on the details to realize their sonic vision.

  25. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  26. A: That mixing and mastering audio is just a technical job. It's very much a creative endevour as well.

  27. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  28. A: I mainly work with electronic pop, electronic dance music and pop/rock music.

  29. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  30. A: My studio setup consists of Logic Pro X and HOFA CD-Burn.DDP.Master. I have a pair of industry-standard Yamaha NS-10 studio monitors. I believe these speakers give me the most accurate sound to create the best mix possible.

  31. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  32. A: Kraftwerk, Depeche Mode, Madonna, Lady Gaga and Andy Wallace.

  33. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  34. A: The most common type of work I do for my clients are mixing and mastering audio.
