    I have worked with Andros on a few projects already and every single time he surprises me turning each song into something beyond what I could have hoped for. This particular project was unique. It is a very sentimental song with a lot of feeling and emotion and I wasn't sure how it would turn out as it is much different than the other projects we have worked on together. Andros nailed this song. I was in a puddle of tears after the first listen. It was heavenly to say the least.

    This is the second project I have done with Andros and this one turned out absolutely more incredible than I imagined it could be. Andros didn't just make this song come to life but he literally made it move. He was able to produce the emotion I was aiming for and gave suggestions of how we could build it vocally and I cannot say enough about how excited I am with the results. Andros is professional, exceptional quality, personable, and quick. I will be hiring him again for more!

    Andros is exceptional to work with! If there were more than 5 stars to rate I give him them all. He most definitely knows his stuff and has a long repertoire of experience to back it up. Andros is personable in his communication. He really does care and has worked with me to make sure we had a finished product that exceeded expectations. I'm working with him again on another project that is more involved and that is going great too. His turnaround time is excellent. Definitely recommend Andros!

    If you want a world class mix/master person this is it. Super patient and helpful, even worked with me long distance as I am an independent artist, located in Bangkok, Thailand, and he is based in New York. Will definitely work with him again as I continue with my album. We might even get a Grammy!

    I've known Andros for a very long time now. No only is he one of the nicest guys you'll meet in this industry, he is also an established professional and a master of his craft. All you need ti do is take a look at his credits to realize you're in great hands (and ears). Highly recommend!

    I have been working with Andros for many years on both coasts. He is a top notch professional who has worked with some of the world's biggest artists in the most legendary studios in the world. Aside from that, he is a great person and an absolute pleasure to make music with. His stellar resume reflects that and if you are lucky enough to work with him, don't hesitate!

    I first met Andros in 2006 at Quad Studios where he was one of the house engineers. I've been fortunate to work with him many times over the years. His ear and passion for music are unparalleled, and on top of that he's a super kind and welcoming person who has been a pleasure to know and collaborate with. I'd hire Andros in a heartbeat, and recommend anyone else to do the same!

Interview with Andros Rodriguez

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

  2. A: Everyone can do it

  3. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  4. A: However I usually begin tracks at home. Fully blown Mac Book Pro with pretty much every plugin/ a multitude of soft synths and Adam A7 monitors. Then finish in a professional studio.

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

  6. A: The most common work I do includes mixing, mastering, and song production,

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

  8. A: When it comes to mixing and mastering, the usual process involves the client providing a "rough mix." Subsequently, I engage in a dialogue with the client to understand their creative vision and sonic preferences. Are they aiming for an enhancement of the existing qualities, seeking to maintain the same essence but with improvements, or are they open to a complete reinterpretation? Once we align on a shared creative vision, I do a mix and provide an MP3 for their review and approval. Once approved, I deliver the final high-resolution versions in WAV format.

  9. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  10. A: The Super Bowl LIV Halftime Show with Shakira and J-Lo. I was programmer, engineer, and mixer.

  11. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  12. A: both

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

  14. A: Creating something that didn't exist before

  15. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  16. A: "How quickly and for how little money can we get this done for?" Clients usually want three things... Good, Fast, and Cheap. You can't have all three.

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

  18. A: 1. What do you want listeners to feel when they hear your song? 2. Where do you see yourself performing this song? (stadium, club, coffee shop etc...) 3. Who is your audience? 4. What are you wearing in the video/ on stage?

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

  20. A: Find someone who truly and humbly will do whats best for the song and not what they "thnk" is right.

  21. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  22. A: 1. Computer with Pro Tools 2. 1176 compressor 3. Neve 1073 preamp 4. Sony C-800 mic 5. LA-2A compressor

  23. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  24. A: My career in music began producing bands in college back in Washington DC. In 2002 I relocated to New York City and secured an internship at the renowned Quad Recording Studios. This opportunity allowed me to gain invaluable insights while assisting and learning from legendary engineers like Michael Brauer and Serban Ghenea. During my tenure there, I had the privilege of collaborating with an array of esteemed artists, including Coldplay, Mariah Carey and Kanye West.. Eventually I became Quad's chief engineer and went freelance a few years later. Since then I have produced, engineered, or mixed songs for Justin Timberlake, Madonna, Shakira, and Christina Aguilera just to name a few.

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  26. A: I would describe my work style as collaborative, enthusiastic, diligent, bold, yet tasteful.

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

  28. A: Listen to all types of music!

  29. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  30. A: pop, electro, singer/ songwriter, rock, hip-hop, broadway, film scores

  31. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  32. A: In terms of music production, I feel my strongest skill is being truly objective and doing whats actually best for the song.

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

  34. A: I think what I bring to a song is discovering it's fundamental feeling and bringing that to life. Is the song suppose to make you dance? Maybe it's suppose to make you cry? Whatever the feeling, I really try to tap into it and express that emotion onto the listener.

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

  36. A: I am inspired by the sounds of "classic" pop producers like Max Martin and Timbaland as well as the newer innovative productions of Finneas.
