Ariel Cavalieri on SoundBetter

I recorded more than 30 studio and live albums. I've been touring with several artists. I played in the band of JULIETA VENEGAS (2004 / 2013) touring with her around all Europe, USA and all Americas Continent. Between 1993 and 1997 in Argentina, I did bass guitar clinics for WARWICK and FENDER. Since 2006 I'm CEO on CASA POP!!! recording studios.

If you have a previous bass line as an example, score or a specific reference for me, please send me that.

The project should include this information:
Bits: (16 or 24 or 32)
kHz (44,100 or 48,000 or 96,000)

Be sure that I will choose the best sound option for your song, your style, but if you have any specific requirements as to choose in my gear available (Ampeg Amp with Fender P-Bass or GK Amp with Warwick 5 string with pick or slap, etc) let me know when you send the first email.

If you are clear about exactly what you want, there is less chance of having to make any changes, so try to be as specific as possible.

Is better make any kind of questions before... not after!
So please feel you totally free, I will listen to any concerns that you have regarding about the recording, timing, package price, sounds, etc.

Contact me through the green button above and let's get to work.

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

  10. A: The first thing I do is talk to the client until I really understand what they are looking for. Many times without them saying it, I can understand what they need, and I am the one who proposes "that" to them. Some clients are very receptive and appreciate this, but others are more strict and are looking for something very specific, and in both cases I give them what they need. That method has worked quite well for me.
