My name is Diego, a professionally trained mixing and mastering engineer from Mexico. I care about your music, tell me what inspired it, who are your influences, and describe how you want it to sound so that we can make great music together.
I have been professionally trained and I have a college degree on sound recording technology, I know what I'm doing. I work hard to make your music sound exactly the way you pictured it in your head, wether you need a great mix or a master for commercial release, I can give you a unique sound that no one else could give you, and I am particularly good at matching the sound of a particular production that you really like, so I encourage you to give all the reference music you want and to be very descriptive about the sound you are looking for. Also I don't mind giving you a couple extra revisions if it is just for small fixes.

Diego is a great guy to work with and a very knowledgable audio engineer. I met him and worked with him during my time at Del Mar College, and he recorded for my band Balsam Grove. It was easy to communicate ideas to him, and his workflow was rather quick and smooth. I'd recommend him to musicians and bands who are new to studio recording, as well as established bands who want to get a more natural feel on their recordings. This guy will take of you as he did for us!
