My name is Alberto Echevarria (artistically I go by the name of Liam Wheeler) and I am an Audio Engineer graduated from Middlesex University, London. Prior to this, I also studied Audio Technician (Certificate of Higher Education) and Piano and Music Theory from The Associate Royal School of Music (ABRSM, UK). Currently, I am attending a Masters in Music Production and Recording at the University of Stavanger, Norway.
Since I finished my Bachelor studies I have always been consistently working, mainly as a mixing engineer or producer, but I also have a background working in Sound Desing for video games, shorts and corporate videos. Regarding music, I feel more comfortable working with any EDM, Pop, Hip-Hop, and in general other mainstream genres.

I hired Alberto for the mix and master of my album "Passive Aggress Me!". He did a very good job, we went through the details via text and e-mail. He was understanding and respectful with the sound concept I wanted and the results of the job were just what I expected and needed. Overall, I am very satisfied with the sound he achieved for my album.

Interview with Alberto Echevarria
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Being able to create art every day.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: -Analyze the material sent by the client and try to understand what is the message of the song. -Check references and establishing a plan, try to figure out which approach could fit the song. -Mixing. -Resting. -Checking and corrections before the final adjustments. -Before delivering the material to the client I always check my work in different listening environments. -Client Feedback.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My priority is always a good listening environment, so I always take care of the acoustics and a good pair of speakers, Focals is normally my first choice but I also like checking the mix with Genelecs and KRK. The core of my studio is a MacBook Pro linked to my UA Apollo, Cubase 10 and also Ableton Live when it comes to more creative matters. I also count with analogue equipment and tons of plugins, gadgets and miscellany but experience has taught me that the key factors are always the talent of the engineer and a good listening environment.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both. Each one has its virtues and drawbacks. A part of my job is to analyze what the client demands and the project needs.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: I guess some musicians with less experience sometimes expect magic from the mixing and mastering process. A great engineer, a great mix or mastering is going to make your song to stand out but the first and most important factor is always a decent raw material, a good song.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Trust your engineer and try to judge the mix he/she delivers in several systems.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Speakers - Focal Alpha Twin 6 BE Top computer with Cubase 10 PRO and Ableton Live Interface - Universal Audio Apollo X8p Microphones - Neumann KM184 Stereo Set And an acoustic guitar ;)
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Music has been always my passion but it started to became serious and more technical when I was 18 and decided to start studying sound technician after high school. Since then it has always been a non-stop development process.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Try to understand the song and what and how its message wants to transmit before starting with the mix.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Pop, EDM, Hiphop-Trap and mainstrem genres in general.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Bob Ezrin, Alan Parsons, The Neptunes, George Matin, Quincy Jones, Dr. Dre, Timbaland and many others great producers along the history.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I have a wide background within the audio production (from sound design to music producer) but my main and most required job is mixing, mastering and producing.
