Adrian Schinoff is a Musician, Producer, Composer, Mixing and Mastering engineer who moved from Argentina to Spain in 1998 to produce and play keyboards with different artists. Since 2013 Adrian has lived in both Spain and California, traveling between them as needed for work.
In 2016 I was nominated for a Latin Grammy Award as Mixing engineer for the Spanish Singer/Songwriter Pablo Alborán in the "tres noches en las ventas", as best recording of the year.
I have two main works in the projects, producing Artists and Mixing and Mastering what other producers do. Meanwhile, I compose and record my own music.
I started playing keyboards and doing arrangements for local artist in my town (Rosario, Argentina). In my home I listened all kinds of music, because my dad was a musician and my brothers were DJs, so I had access to all kind of vinyl from the 80´s and 90´s!
I used to listen to local bands in the radio and I was a fan of one of them, years later, this band called me to join them, so I started to learn this kind of music. We played Soul and Funk, so the lead singer showed me some of my heroes: Stevie Wonder, Al Jarreau, Prince, and many others…
This moment was at the beginning of the pandemic, I had a world wide tour with the Spanish singer Pablo Alboran and all concerts were canceled, so I started to compose and record my last album. In some way was a positive situation to have more time to experiment new recording and mixing techniques, and to enjoy the process. Now, I realise that the world is smaller, you can produce, mix and master from your “Home” Studio…
Always follow your instincts, we all have a special talent, so there is a place for everyone in this path. Never give up if you love music.
I started doing music with headphones, I’m a headphone addict. I begin a Mix or a Mastering with speakers, and always finish it with cans. I can fix little details that I cannot find in the studio monitors.
And another main reason to wear headphones is when I need to learn a new repertoire, to have focus in the harmonies and feel into the music.
I spend most of the time using headphones, helps me to make fine adjustments in every aspect when I´m programming, mixing or mastering a new song. So, I appreciate the work of brands like Audeze, who seek to find the greatest detail in what we hear...
With the LCD-X I can focus on details that my monitors can’t, also I can notice any minimum adjustment in the equalization... The Audezes save my time!
I’ve been Mixing and Mastering my last Album: “El Embalao Vol. 3”
