Alex Bauer on SoundBetter

Music creates emotions, I always try to let those emotions shine through the mix.

BA Music and audio recording CSUDH. I have worked in several fields of the audio industry. I recorded and mixed the soundtrack of one of Mexico's biggest block buster films "Como agua para chocolate". Recorded, produced and mixed several albums but my highlight is mixing. My main goal when mixing is to find the right sound for the song. Whether it is an atmospheric track with lots of delays and reverb or an aggressive in-your-face track I will find the sound your track needs in collaboration with you.

  1. Review by Oscar Guerrero

    Alex is a great Producer / Mixing Engineer, he is highly dedicated. He is always trying to get the most of every instrument, of every note. He is always open to suggestions and gives his input accurately to achieve a greater sound. I've worked with him in different projects through the years from radio spots to my band's (Obra Negra) rock album, always getting the best results.

  2. Review by novelli

    I know Alex a long time ago and 2 years ago he started mixing my album "Venera" he's work is fabulous since he has very good idea of how things should sound, he is an excellent engineer and human being. I truly recommend his work.

  3. Review by Adan C.

    Alex has helped me accomplish the sound I've been after for a while. He is an incredible dedicated Mixing Engineer, he puts a lot of time and effort onto his work and has worked very closely with me to get to the sound I was looking for.

    I highly recommend him for any type of music. I do mostly electronic music but I've heard his work in rock, classical, and folk music.

Interview with Alex Bauer

  1. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  2. A: I will spend all the time needed until we are both completely satisfied.

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

  4. A: I live in Mexico city but was fortunate to study at CSUDH, I graduated with a BA in music and audio recording in 1992 and have been producing jingles and albums ever since.

  5. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  6. A: Brian Eno. I believe that he has worked on an extremely varied palette of artists and has introduced a unique sound to many of his productions.

  7. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  8. A: Mixing. I like to find a unique sound for every project.

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

  10. A: Emotions. Music evoques emotions and a bad mix can muffle what you, the artist want to convey. If I don't feel anything after I listen to a song I believe that something went wrong somewhere down the process.

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

  12. A: After I receive the tracks I try to establish the type of mix we are looking for. I always ask for songs you think could be a reference for the sound we are looking for. I also like hearing a rough mix so that I can hear the balance of the instruments.

  13. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  14. A: I own a Sony DMX-R100 console. I love it's sound and works wonderfully as a summing board. I have Eventide, Yamaha, Sony and Lexicon outboard gear and an arsenal of plugins. I believe that combining hardware processors and plugins gives you the best of both worlds. I mix on KRK VXT8 speakers with an ERGO room correction box.

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

  16. A: Brian Eno, Elbow, Bob Clearmountain, Patrick Watson, Bruce Swedien, Nicolas Jaar, Mark Needham, The Black keys, Bomba Estereo, Goldfrapp, David Byrne

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

  18. A: I do a lot of audio work for Radio and TV ads including jingles which has broadened my music palette since there is no main genre to focus on, one day I am mixing a salsa jingle, the next day it's a horror score but my expertise is Mixing. When it comes to mixing, sometimes I feel I shouldn't be paid for something I enjoy so much :)
