    Ariel's mixes are so inspiring. I compared his final mix to what we gave him and our drums sounded like a cheap metronome. He transformed them into the most massive beat imaginable. There is nothing I would change, just incredible! Thanks Ariel. E

    I didn't think Ariel could get any better but the mixing in the most recent track is out of this world. He made it sound absolutely massive and it's everything I wanted and more. Not only this but I've got to say Ariel is so good at delivering exactly what you want! There were some minor tweaks I wanted doing and within a matter of hours he'd already sent it over exactly how I wanted. Unbeatable service

    We had Ariel mix a single for us and after hearing the results decided to have him mix the remaining 6 songs of our project. He put the same amount of time, care and attention to detail into each song as he did for the single. Not only do all the songs sound great, but he took the time to make each one unique based on what the particular song needed. Communication is great and he is extremely easy to work with if you have any notes or changes. Highly recommend for your next song or project.

    Ariel is a talented professional. There's many producers/engineers here, at various levels of ability and experience. When I say Ariel is "professional," I mean in his communications with you, his standard of technical skill, and ear training from many years of mixing "hit" songs and award-winning artists.
    He approaches each track as a unique music form with a view to producing contemporary sounding radio ready tracks, no matter what the style. Ariel is this caliber of engineer!

    Ariel is mixing our entire album. Ariel's mixing and Mike Bozzi's mastering has proved to be a winning formula for us; we don't think we could get better results from anyone else. Thank you Ariel. E

    Ariel! My goodness! What words can I actually use for how I truly feel about his artistic abilities. I can say it again and again yet it will not and can not express how awesome he truly is. But what I can say is... he is truly a Godsend! Thanks Ariel

    Finding a fitting mixing engineer for your music isn't an easy task - that's why I was thrilled when I discovered Ariel on this platform! 
    I haven't often had someone really understand the vision in my mind and then actually put it into practice. The final mix which I received is definitely one of the best results I've ever obtained. 
    It should also be emphasised that Ariel has always been very reliable and patient during the process and has also brought his individual class to the table!

    To quote Ariel, "I can not send anything out that isn't perfect" and he means it. His mixes are perfect. They are huge, open, and modern. I genuinely cannot believe someone of Ariel's caliber is here on Soundbetter. We have gotten so many comments on Soundcloud and Spotify about how good our mixes are. Thank you Ariel.

    I've worked with a ton of engineers in the past few years and Ariel is by far the best engineer I've had the pleasure of working with. He's extremely flexible, and his attention to detail is exactly where any artist would want their engineer to be. He's happy to work on the mix until he's got it exactly how you envision it to be and is an awesome team player. It was great working with him and I hope I'll be able to do so again in the near future!

    Ariel did a great job of mixing and mastered my song. Incredibly accommodating and professional to all my requests. Took my production to a TRULY professional level.

    The proof is in the pudding, so if you want to hear the amazing work he did my song is called "Having A Day", by OGR-Scintilla.

    Ariel is an absolute pleasure to work with. His mixes come out super duper clean. Not only that, but Ariel goes the extra mile to make sure you are 100% satisfied with your mix, which can NOT be said about a lot of engineers. And Lord knows I've been through more than my fair share. Would 100% recommend.

    Thanks,

    One of the best to ever do it. Had the privilege to get spend some time in the studio with Ariel and see how he makes the magic. Ariel's precision, passion, and sheer talent make him someone you definitely do not want to pass on.

Interview with Ariel Chobaz

  1. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  2. A: It's a combination of analog and digital which allows me to have an unprecedented amount of control and automation

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

  4. A: Final mixing and mastering. I am able to adjust both throughout the mixing process, creating a synergy and marriage between the mix and the master that is undeniably musical, incredible sounding, and nearly impossible to beat

  5. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  6. A: Being able to realize the artistic vision of an artist while creating impactful, meaningful, and commercial mixes

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

  8. A: Passion for the project and a desire to make the song the very best it can be, I am only as good as my latest mix

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

  10. A: I start a mix and about half way through I start the mastering. This allows me to adjust both as I finish and finalize the mix to ensure I'm getting the most energy, impact, punch, depth, width, warmth, and clarity possible. I also request reference songs to ensure I nail the vision for the mix and master

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

  12. A: I am lucky that I get to work on an extremely wide range of genres and styles which keeps me learning, pushing, and passionate about all my projects.

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

  14. A: Colleges and friends that inspire me would include Dave Pensado, Manny Marroquin, Serban Ghenea, and Jaycen Joshua to name a few

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

  16. A: I put the same amount of passion and effort into every project, no matter the budget

  17. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  18. A: Both, it comes down to what works for certain sounds and songs. I've found a combination provides the most benefit of both mediums

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

  20. A: That I get to work on what I love most every day
