3 ReviewsEndorse Edgar Vargas
Edgar was an extreme pleasure to work with!! Very professional and very talented!! Will def be working with him in the future!!!
I am currently working a few songs with Edgar to release an EP and it has been amazing! He really understood my type of music and vibe. The production of one of the songs is almost finished and it sounds even better than what I imagined, in just a few hours of production he created something magical. He is really talented and passionated about what he does. Recommended 100%
Working with Edgar has been really great. He is mastering a live project for me and we are extremely happy with his services! He is excellent and has taken our music to the next level. Definitely will want to work with him in the future!
Interview with Edgar Vargas
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: A bit of both. A little bit of the past with a little bit of the future is beautiful.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: That I will do everything in my power to exceed your expectations!
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: That I get to be creative every day!
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Probably that people think it's fun ALL the time. Most of the time it doesn't feel like work, but sometimes it's hard work!
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Invest in your craft and goals; if you don't, why would anyone else?
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been working in the music industry for 15 years!
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Dave Grohl because he's the goat!
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Do be a afraid to draw outside the lines and edit later
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Mostly Pop, Urban, and Latin
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Sound design
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring my musical taste and attention to detail to make it perfect
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: It ranges from artist to artist. Some artists like starting with a simple acoustic guitar, and some like to write to full tracks. My turn around time is pretty quick when it comes to mixing and mastering.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a Symphony I/O chained with a Manley Vari Mu, Neve DPA pres, and 8 SSL dynamics & eq channel strips. Speakers are Focal Solo 6 and Augspurger mains.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: My favorite producers are The Neptunes and Rick Ruben!
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: It's an even "mix" of production, mixing, and mastering. I started out as an engineer and worked on some big records like All Gold Everything by Trinidad and won a latin grammy for an album I mastered called "Sentimientos". After that, I got into production since I've been a musician all my life!
