4 ReviewsEndorse Serge Espitia
I have worked on Serge's mixes for years and they always are a joy to work on. Crisp and clear. Go-to mixing engineer.
I was lucky enough to have my studio room in the same building as Serge, a few years ago. From the moment we met I was impressed with his commitment to quality and professionalism, and also by his outstanding taste for music and audio gear. He mixed and mastered several of my TV and film music projects, and I couldn't be happier with the results.
Serge knows his stuff thoroughly and also has that creative spark that is invaluable for any producer/engineer worth his salt. On top of that, he is a really cool guy to be around. Some of my best studio experiences were with and thanks to him.
Serge is a consummate professional, bringing his vast knowledge, experience and passion to each and every project. As an engineer, I cannot recommend him highly enough. He knows all the current digital tech and techniques, but also understands analog, classic sound, blend and space.
I have worked with Serge for years now. I've thrown a lot of different styles at him - from solo guitar and voice to giant orchestrations with choirs - digital instruments, acoustic instruments, it doesn't matter. Serge has nails every mix. He will ensure you are satisfied with your final product, no question.
As a sound engineer, and now as a friend, Serge is the epitome of class and professionalism. He truly cares about the work that he does, and was as invested in my project as I was when he was working on it. His equipment is top notch, and my song sounded better than I could have ever imagined. My experience working with Serge was worth every penny and I cannot wait to do it again.
Interview with Serge Espitia
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I specialize in mixing and mastering. I mostly work on rock, hip-hop and singer-songwriter styles of music.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Tiny Thunder is a hybrid mixing suite. I use analog summing as well as outboard equipment for the mixbus and key elements of a song (drums, bass vocals, etc). All mastering is done trough an analog chain with equipment by Neve, Manley, Avalon, etc.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I will usually listen to the material a couple of times, after that I'll balance everything out and start processing from there.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: I would ask them to make sure that their project is absolutely ready for mixing. This way I'm always able to get started right away without any delays.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I will work with you until you are completely satisfied with the end result.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both. Best of both worlds!
