Founder of Capiroto Records. Music producer, but in the meantime I help artists have the best audio-quality possible to release their own music. In my studio, I use Push 2, in Ableton Live, plus Waves Plug Ins, my preferred mastering plug ins are Abbey Roads Mastering Chain and the tape simulators, Kramer or J37. I am endorser of Ollo Audio.
I usually work with electronic related genres, but I also like to explore new genres, such as psychedelic rock or more organic recordings. I offer mix and mastering services, but I can also help artists have their music produced and released, specially in digital platforms, with the correct loudness levels in LUFS.
