Juan Miguel Gomez Montant

Audio Engineer / Producer

Juan Miguel Gomez Montant on SoundBetter

If you have an artistic vision you want to hear come to life I will work with you until we fulfil that vision. Years of experimentation and studies in audio engineering, mixing, mastering, and editing have developed a set of skills that allow me to interpret your ideas into something you are proud of and to bring a uniqueness to each project.

Mexican-Canadian Audio Engineer, Producer and Multi-Instrumentalist, I was born and raised in Mexico City, where I spent more than 20 years of my life surrounded by an exciting and uplifting urban music scene. I have since pursued and completed a Bachelors Degree in Audio Engineering and Music Production and Guitar Performance from Academia de Musica Fermatta in Mexico City. I worked in different recording studios around Ottawa including one of the most advanced and in demand studios in the city. After a few years of working for others I decided to open my own space, Zorro Recording Studios. This experience has provided me to opportunity to work with rock industry leaders such as Ron Nevison, Jeff Scott Soto, Alessandro Del Vecchio, and others.

Contacting me is always the best way to determine the overall cost as this is influenced by many factors.

Revisions are certainly allowed and encouraged as my satisfaction with a project is never fully satisfied until we are both happy, however due to time constraints additional charges for revisions may be required.

Editing and vocal tuning is also a specialty of mine and can be discussed in relation to the project needs.

Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.

Interview with Juan Miguel Gomez Montant

  1. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  2. A: Both. Nothing beats the sound of an excellent microphone going through a top tier pre-amp, but the digital world has come so far that almost anything can be achieved.

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

  4. A: I’ll never be happy until you are happy.

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

  6. A: Working with music that I like and I feel attracted to. Then it never feels like a job and it just feels like I’m the luckiest guy in the world.

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

  8. A: People tend to believe there is a set amount of time something like this should take. The time it takes to create a song is a fluid an evolving experience and the end result is much better with this understanding.

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

  10. A: What sound are you looking for? What are your favorite bands and artists? What are your goals for your music? What exactly are you expecting to get out of this experience?

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

  12. A: Have a solid conservation with the person/people you intend to hire for your project. Make sure that they are able to get on to the same page as you regarding your desired outcome. The creative process at this point should be a two-way street and your engineer should be working to bring your ideas to life, open and honest communication goes a long way.

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

  14. A: Never underestimate the importance of getting an excellently recorded take. Even though near-miracles can be accomplished with mixing and editing, nothing beats an incredibly well recorded performance.

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

  16. A: I believe the fact that I’m not only an engineer and producer, but also someone that understands music from a performer and writer perspective, as I am also a multi-instrumentalist, provides me the comfortability and understanding to discuss and suggest ideas related to the project in a deeper level than some others might be able to.

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

  18. A: I like to always have a chat with any potential artist I work with to make sure we are both on the same page regarding vision, taste and expectations for the music we’ll be working with. After that I book sessions to work on the project with and without the artist, as I believe both are equally as important. I always make sure to check with creator to make sure their vision is being accomplished as I continue working and I’m always open to edits, comments and a limited amount of revisions.

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

  20. A: Led Zeppelin, Royal Blood, Charlie Parker, Chick Corea, Bruno Mars, Vulfpeck, Snarky Puppy, Foster the People, Sigur Ros.

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

  22. A: Writing, composing, arranging, recording (vocals and all types of instruments), editing, vocal tuning, mixing and mastering.
