I work as mastering engineer and I believe that every project need a unique sound based on the music and emotion that it could create.
When I receive a project I try to understand all the things that are behind the creation because I believe that your recording is the consequence of a serie of events that you live.
As an audio professional, I also work as a mix engineer, but most of the time I do mastering works.
I think the result of the sound of your project is not just hardware or equipment, it is a sensitive ear and knowledge that allows me to make the best decisions and processes necessary to apply to your project.

Nuestro primer EP fue masterizado por Sebastián. El resultado superó nuestras expectativas. Su trabajo es muy profesional. Muy recomendado.
Sebastián is one of the most brilliants audio engineers that i know. In my work as a producer and recording engineer, i always rely on him for the mastering process. He takes very seriously what he does and is very professional. He delivers the masters on time and always impress me with the good taste he has for sound. 100% Recommended.
Trabajé con Sebas para el master de mi trabajo con La Funk Organisation "Organic Taste" excelente en todo sentido: Cumplimiento, llegué a la Sonoridad deseada para este disco, de los pocos ingenieros que saben manejar un muy buen rango dinámico. 100% Recomendado.
Sebastián Lopera ha sido ing. de master de proyectos en los que he trabajado, como LA RAYA, e Ing. de mezcla y master de los proyectos Bohemia y Viajeros. Lo recomiendo 100%. No sólo por su profesionalismo y dedicación en todos los trabajos que asume, sino porque tiene MERA OREJA ("mera oreja": Dícese de su asombrosa capacidad de escuchar).
Sebastian does a truly professional job. It is a pleasure as an independent musician to have such a complete professional and an integrated person.
Kick ass work!!!! This guy made our music sound huge! Not only involved in mixing, but a very creative musician supporting the whole process.. highly recommend
Working with Sebas was great for me and my band (Phantos) because he was really focused on really bringing out the best sound quality and texture from our work in studio. Great composition and musicianship is nothing without proper mastering, so thanks to you Sebas!
As a producer, the most important thing is to make happy the musicians you work with. Sebastián can get the feeling in the mix that the musicians are looking for, and that (beeing a producer) let you concentrate in other aspects of the project you are working on.
I'm truly satisfied with the results of working with Sebastian. Such a great person, always giving the best and that's reflected in my mixes after the mastering process. I like his kindness and the attitude to achieve the best sound.
Great hearing for harmony, a very sensitive perception of rhythm. Sebastian really knows what to highlight, how and when, selecting those important 'climax' of your song and making it always better.
Sebastian has been my band's Mastering Engineer for several years, he's very professional and he always delivers the final product in time. I love the fact that he listens to your mastering needs and he works hard until he gets the result that you're looking for. Sebastian is also a musician, so he has a sensitive ear, and he will make your songs sound powerful, without losing the dynamics.
Great work and amazing person, happy with all that he did with our songs. He find what we had in our minds. Ask and work on the big and little things of our songs very meticulous. Don't be afraid to ask him for a demo session, is how he share his work.
Interview with Sebastian Mastering
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring new and fresh ears that could listen some things that maybe you have missed on the production process or only check that the sound that you imagine is on the final master.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: First I try to understand the artist or producer vision of the project. I want to know what are they looking for. Then I check if the mix is ready to be mastered according to their objectives, if it's not ready I send my feedback about the mix that let us get the sound goals. Then I send a master reference that let you listen my approach and wait the feedback of the master. I don't have any problem with making corrections, the most important thing for me is the artist/producer satisfaction.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My mastering setup is based on analog and digital processing, knowing the benefits of each domain. The most important hardware forme is the monitoring. I work with ATC SCM25A PRO combined with an EVE TSF108 Subwoofer that let me listen all the things that happen in the mixes, all of this controlled with a CRANESONG AVOCET IIA. My audio interface is an Apogee Symphony MKII and my DA/AD converter is CRANESONG HEDD QUANTUM. I believe that the tone control let me get the most powerful master from your mixes, that why I have SPL PASSEQ, CRANESONG IBIS EQ, TK AUDIO TKLIZER and ELYSIA XFILTER. For dynamic control I use CHARTER OAK SCL-1 and ELYSIA XPRESSOR. All of the studio setup is routed using FLOCK AUDIO ANALOG PATCH controlled digitally.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Mixing and Mastering their productions, sometimes some artists call me to record them.
