Donald Manuel on SoundBetter

When it’s about bringing music back to life, you can talk to me. My main skill is to identify and enhance the potential in music projects and artists. I have been into the music scene since I’m a kid, working with great musicians and artists, developing own projects understanding all stages in creative processes.

I can record(drums,percussions, bass and rhythmic guitars),along with a varied group of music professionals around the world, produce(Pop, Afro-Caribbean, urban and Latin styles) and mix your projects(songs,EP, Album).My big advantage, I understand and live rhythm, that’s the base of everything. I can also understand the way harmonies work on vocals and instruments, also how to make them sound great according to the genre. I take your projects from the beginning till the mix but I can also help you in the process of making that recording become real as a live band coach, giving you all, the tools to be able to work as a team, to trust each other and communicate on and off stage. Leadership is key when you try to develop your music project, it’s the difference between having separated elements or performers or a team that can also be like a family together.

    Donald Manuel, the musical director of Minga 3 and a phenomenal producer. His talent in mixing and music production is unmatched, significantly enhancing our collective's sound and my solo work.

    Donald's technical expertise and creative vision make him a standout in the music industry. He's not only an asset to any project but also one of the most gifted musicians I've encountered.

    In short, Donald's involvement in music guarantees excellence and innovation.

    Donald is a very professional, reliable and creative producer, drummer and percussionist. Donald has a great knowledge and expertise particulary on Afro-caribbean and Latin music. Working with Donald has always been a very enriching experience. His feedback and creative contribution helped me to significantly improve the quality of my Reggae productions. I highly recommend Donald.

    I worked with Donald on my first Bavarian/Spanish music project and the result is awesome! Although I am not really a very professionell singer he always gave me a good feeling and strongly believes in our "song baby". I am really looking forward to our next Latin songs! You absolutely have to cooperate with this great musician, lovely person and incredible composer and producer. Thanks, Donald, for everything!

    A virtuoso on everything that can be beat. A fine ear when eavesdropping. The first work on an acapella piece was very satisfactory. I am looking forward to more.


I was the Producer and Mixing engineer in this production
