Open minded approach to all projects and willing to give an outside opinion to help deliver a quality final product.
I have been twisting knobs for over 10 years professionally. I graduated from L.A.R.S (Los Angeles Recording School) and earned a degree in Recording Arts. After working at Cherokee and Nightbird Studios in Los Angeles I came in contact with Grammy nominated Producer Johnny K and Engineered the Plain White T's "Big Bad World" which led to the opportunity to work along side Johnny K and engineering all his future projects at Groovemaster Studios in Chicago. While doing so I've had the pleasure of Engineering Sevendust, Disturbed, Plain White T's, Anthrax, Alien Ant Farm, Finger 11, Pop Evil, Nonpoint, Airbourne, Staind, Trapt, and many other major label acts. I currently own and operate Command Space Audio in Chicago.
As every artist will have a different vision, each project will be approached differently but will still have the same professional quality result. I am flexible with multiple song discounts to cater for bigger project feel free to inquire.

Reviews (11)Endorse Daniel Salcido
Daniel has been a pleasure to work with. "Tanked" was our first project with him. Also the first time our master came back extremely fast and he nailed it on the first try. We definitely will be working with him again. 5+stars.. Definitely give Dan a shot, you'll not be dissapointed with the results. He-Nis-Ra
I've worked alongside Daniel for the past 5 years at Groovemaster Studios and can personally vouch for his ability and professionalism. The importance of a laid-back and confident vibe in the studio cannot be understated, of which he surely possesses. He's pretty damn good…for a Lakers fan! ☺ Highly recommend!
The first time I worked with Daniel, I brought to him a rag tag group of musicians to record the meat and potatoes of 7 new songs in one day. His utilization of equipment at his disposal as well as knowledge of the room was indispensable. He was meticulous with tones, tuning, and faster than Clint Eastwood with a gun on editing and clean up. A+++
Daniel is an absolute pro, and one of the single largest reasons why our previous album achieved the successes it did - two singles in the top 20, and both of them accumulating over a year total on the top 40 as well as topping numerous "most played" lists for various national radio, satellite, and internet stations. One of the best in Chicago.
Amazing engineer with an incredible ear. Tells it like it is and will push you to get better. A true professional.
My experience working with Daniel has been incredible. He has taken my original music to a whole new level of quality and professionalism. A high level professional in every way. I plan to work with him on all of my future projects.
Great to work with and does a great job
Best engineer in Chicago. No question.
Daniel is an amazing producer with a stellar ear. Having worked with him along side platinum selling artists he is the first person I call for my artists records.
Daniel is one of the few producers who have the ability to listen and truly taken in a song - understanding how to not only deliver killer sonics but help shape the song
A fantastic, attentive engineer who is absolutely on top of his game. Probably one of the top hard rock engineers in Chicago, and an absolute pleasure to work with. I fully plan on working with Daniel again in the future!
Daniel's a total pro. He's got an acute ear for drums and guitar tone. I've hired him as an engineer as well as worked alongside him. In both cases he was professional and easy to work with. Given his pedigree of major label experience and almost freakish sense of hearing I'd trust him on just about anything.
