Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Take references, listen to the artist and let the music flow!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: There is no particular type of music, all works are different and I appreciate them as such.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I am a very open person to work in a team and empathize with what is asked of me.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I like to understand where the song is going and maximize its feelings with different tools such as reverbs, delays, eq, compression, etc.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: First of all, I listen carefully to the song for the first time and try to highlight everything that comes to my mind. I consider that the first impression is really important. Then, if I see that there is no problem or mistake in some step before the one I have to do, I start working on the song. I always try to maintain communication with my client, I need to listen to what he is telling me in order to perform. Normally, if it's a mix, I take at least 72 hours to give the necessary work to the piece. Also, giving it time allows me to make a final listen with a fresh ear. Finally, the client will receive an mp3 of the mix to listen to it and decide if the mix fits or if he wants to make any more changes. Obviously, once the mixing or mastering is finished, the client will receive the corresponding file.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Very briefly, my studio setup consists of high-end ATC SCM25A PRO loudspeakers and Yamaha HS7 monitors, which are used in an acoustically isolated room. I am also very familiar with the response of the system. I also have a Crane Song HEDD Quantum converter and a Whitestone P331 harmonic exciter.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: As a child I played the piano a lot and was fascinated by the pianists Glenn Gould and Bill Evans. Then I started to get into the music of The Beatles, Green Day, Charly García, etc. However, nowadays I listen to an incredible diversity of music, among them, many urban genres, folk, rock, jazz, R&b, etc. On the other hand, I value the work of many audio engineers who inspire me and open my head to learn more and more.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: The most common work I do for my clients is mixing and mastering. I do it with the real intention that they are satisfied. The only thing I want is for the song to sound amazing and for the client to have a good experience.
