Nacor Zuluaga Morelo on SoundBetter

Working with Pop and Latin artists like Enrique Iglesias, Q, Andra, and Gente De Zona; on films like Deadpool, and for brands like Tom Ford and Shiseido, has led me to a fruitful and fulfilling career in mixing and mastering Grammy Nominated & Multi-platinum stories that turned into songs.

After moving to NYC from Bogotá, Colombia, I was mentored by Mark Christensen in 2011-2013 mastering projects for artists like Robin Schulz (on the Grammy-nominated Remix of 'Waves' by Mr. Probz), Trey Songz, and 50 Cent.

Working tirelessly in commercial studios in NYC since 2011, surrounded by Grammy-winning engineers, motivated me early on to dedicate myself exclusively to Mixing and Mastering in Stereo + ATMOS in 2014.

Privileged to collaborate with creatives like you, engineer for 300+ production teams around the world, and release my own records, I learned the importance of genuinely connecting as creatives first to craft songs that capture your vision and convert new fans.

After lockdown and with a deep desire to connect with new people in 2021, I joined Alex Tumay at DWSG to assist on releases for acts like Jessie Murph, 21 Savage, and Kid Kudi.

Whether you are just debuting independently or have the support of a label team connecting the dots, my sole intention remains the same: TO CONTRIBUTE TO YOUR DREAMS AND PURPOSE BY CREATING WORK THAT IS DRIVEN BY EMPATHY, MOVES PEOPLE, AND IMPACTS OUR CULTURE.

    I've been working with Nacor for quite some time now and he doesn't disappoint! His skills and level of professionalism is on another level. He gives quality work and service that brings satisfaction to his clients.

  3. Review by Fred S.

    Nacor set an impossible standard for mastering and I hope he will work with me again!

    I've worked with a lot of engineers to master and they never seem to get it perfect. Nacor did and even offers different options to make sure its perfect for YOU.

    I'd recommend Nacor to anyone who wants to master music correctly.

    My second job with Nacor! Outstanding work! Exemplary! No revisions needed. He didn’t know that I was using his work as a benchmark to another engineer on soundbetter, who used to much compression. “Girl I’m Ghost” Tanuke ft. Styles P of the LOX drops 2023 @tanukemusiccompany (IG)

  5. Review by Diego Deleville

    Nacor is a great engineer and a lovely guy, very methodical, professional and efficient. He really is in touch with your expectations. I hardly recommend him.

  6. Review by Matt G.

    Nacor works super hard to get the best possible results. Patient and knowledgeable with an amazing ear. Couldn't ask for more.

  7. Review by Hosanna S.

    Nacor is the best engineer I've worked with to date. First and foremost, his mix and master capability is so good. My song sounds so clean I can't get enough of it, cleanest song on my discography (Seruksessions - Mamacita). Even aside from his proven ability, his patience and willingness to cooperate and bring the best out of you as an artist, going above and beyond what you signed up and "paid" for is incredible, he was teaching me as we went along. He clearly cares about the craft more than $

  8. Review by k_rawofficial

    Nacor is not only a well knowledgeable, talented, and detail oriented engineer, he also has great communication skills! which is extremely important when picking someone on a site like this as it can be difficult to communicate sometimes. There’s not many I trust with my tracks as I strive for high quality work, but Nacor never disappoints! Look no further you’ll be glad you picked Nacor!

  9. Review by Kanika P.

    Nacor is 100% a life-changing engineer. Not only is he easy to work with and communicate with, but he's also willing to work around tight timelines. I was surprised to see how few revisions I needed with him; he seemed to crack the cleanest sound from the get-go; all while hyping up the project. Will definitely be working with him again and recommend him to everyone looking for a stress-free experience.

  10. Review by Curt K.

    Nacor was very patient, relaxed and a great listener. This is very rare in today’s short attention span society. Hired for some basic vocal tuning and look forward to using his services again in the future on my Simulated Recordings imprint. Highly Recommended.

  11. Review by Tobias S.

    Excellent service, quick turnaround! Nacor was VERY helpful as well as professional. My project was completed quickly and the finished product came out better than I wanted. I would recommend him and I look forward to coming back. Thank you Nacor!

  12. Review by Sareesh S.

    Nacor is an amazing mastering engineer with a great ear. He also promptly answers any queries and he works fast.

    I highly recommend him!

    Nacor is the man! No need to work with anyone else.

    Great work, Nacor! I appreciate your services.

  15. Review by DaveJavu

    Nacor was very patient and professional to work with. He truly took the time to try and understand what I was looking for in a mix. I would definitely recommend working with Nacor.

  16. Review by Sam Schimek

    Nacor delivered exactly what I was hoping to achieve. He's particularly skilled at taking client feedback into account while maintaining friendly, clear, and open communication. Very pleased!

  17. Review by Brandon K.

    Nacor is legend status. Just when you think the sonics of your song can't improve anymore, they somehow do with Nacor. The experience was very custom tailored, which can be rare when moving into mixing and mastering. Highly recommend Nacor if you are looking to take your track to the highest level possible!

  18. Review by Matt G.

    The mix came out sounding amazing. Even in a song with many competing sounds Nacor found the perfect placement for all parts. Nacor has an excellent work ethic, coming back with revisions quickly and hitting all the outlined points.
    Highly recommend working with him, as I will be again as well.

  19. Review by Nicholas M.

    Best mix/master I've ever received and it's not even close!

  20. Review by Edward M.

    Nacor is the ultimate professional and our experience with him was amazing. He was patient and accommodating. He showed that he is out to help artists achieve their goal by creating the sound they had envisioned. Very responsive and passionate about his work. Would highly recommend him and will be working with him again.

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: Having a blast mastering the album of the Music Tech senior class of Edward R. Murrow H.S

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

  6. A: The absolute best of me on each song I touch. I will make sure our experience working together is a remarkable time where we unveil the purpose of your music.

  7. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  8. A: The personal connection I build with each client and their craft.

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

  10. A: I started as an immigrant student, shadowing studio sessions while learning English at Engine Room Audio. After graduating in 2012, I became a part-time intern and got a promotion soon after to become a full-time Mastering Assistant. Later on, I was promoted to become Operation Manager in 2015 and through that opportunity I discovered a strong passion for education becoming an Audio Engineering teacher to new students coming through the studio.

  11. Q: How would you describe your style?

  12. A: I like to craft clean and big-sounding records that translate effortlessly on any speakers.

  13. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  14. A: Pop, R&B, Hip-Hop, and Latin

  15. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  16. A: Artistic sensibility, emotional intelligence, and healthy communication.

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

  18. A: 1. Get in touch with me to discuss your project. 2. Send assets 3. Make a deposit 4. Expect the 1st Mix or Master (Main Pass) in 4-6 business days.

  19. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  20. A: I run a Shadow Hills Console as the center of my mixing and mastering workflow feeding Pro Tools for mixing and Wavelab for Mastering through an Orion HD 32-ch AD/DA converter. My current monitoring includes Barefoot Footprint 01 speakers and Audeze LCD-x headphones.

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

  22. A: Camilo, Jungle, and Pharrell Williams.

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

  24. A: Multitrack mixing and stereo mastering for independent artists.

  25. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  26. A: Clients don't hire me for my gear or to create a mix. Clients hire me because they respect my taste in music and know that I can help them make their music sound professional and well crafted.

  27. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  28. A: When clients ask me how they can make their records sound bigger and more mature I encourage them to use the least amount of tracks in their arrangements. When I produce, I try to keep my track count as low possible and avoid layering unnecessary elements. Keeping things simple is certainly the key to massive/in your face records. The abundance of space within the production lets the mix breath and reach greater perceived loudness without having to max out your headroom or doing much EQ carving. In music, less is certainly more.

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

  30. A: A creative set of ears and a skill set that carefully crafts a story for each song I work on. A refresh and assertive sound.

  31. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  32. A: I always ask people about their goals and needs on any given project, understanding people's background and dreams allows me to structure a plan and engineer the record with precision. Every project is DIFFERENT.

  33. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  34. A: Both, you can achieve incredible results in both domains if you are CREATIVE and experienced.
