Mix & mastering engineer are my main roles on most of the projects that I'm working on now.
My journey with the music started playing bass when I was 12 years old. I grew up listening all kind of music (fully influenced by my dad): Genesis, Yes, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Beck, Foo Fighters, Jamiroquai, Aerosmith and more.
After that I started composing and recording my own music and I fell in love with audio engineering.
My influences, when it comes to mixing: Josh Gudwin and Jaycen Joshua, and for mastering: Chris Gehringer. After listening to them I felt very identified with their work.
In my past, sometimes I was really overwhelmed about the amount of work that I had, mainly when it comes to produce a record. Nowadays, I delegate all the editing work so I can be fresh for the mixing stage.
Compete with yourself, not others.
Besides using them to check my mixes and masters, or doing binaural automation in my mixes, I always use my headphones when I record in a studio that I'm not familiar with the monitoring.
The first thing that left me amazed was the amount of detail that I have now in my mixes, and the mid-low it's so clear. For mastering, I can detect better the differences between songs when I am working on an album. And last but not least, I can clearly hear the amount of distortion in a track.
The funny thing is that sometimes I take my LCD-X off because I think that I'm hearing my monitors. I can't believe how close to a good monitor system they sound.
Currently I'm working with 5 artists at the same time:
