Agustín Pugh on SoundBetter

Top quality mixing engineer, highly experienced in genres such as pop punk, hardcore, rock, and pop. Big, modern, impactful, polished sound.

Hi!

I'm Agustín Pugh, a producer and mix engineer from Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Working professionally for 5 years now, I'm also a mastering engineer, audio editor, musician, and founder of my studio, Estudio Dookie

I find great inspiration from artists like Green Day, Blink 182, State Champs, Silverstein, Bring Me The Horizon, Dua Lipa, Justin Bieber, Charlie Puth, and also producers like Zakk Cervini, Sam Guaiana, Chris Lord Alge, Tom Lord Alge, Serban Ghenea, and Manny Marroquin.

To me, mixing is about enhancing emotions and creating excitement.

I define my sound as big, modern, and polished with lots of impact, but I'm happy to explore different vibes for the artist. My goal is to help the song reach its full potential while translating the artist's vision as purely as possible. For this reason, I put 100% into everything I do, no matter how big or small the project.

For quotes or any questions you'd like answered, don't hesitate to get in touch with me at any time. I'd love to hear from you!

    It was a pleasure that you worked with us in this song called "Tuve Suficiente". This great work was up to you and your music production was amazing. As a band we made the perfect call by chosing you.

    Contacted him to help me mix my songs.
    He's a professional at what he does and helped me to make the best of my songs, I couldn't have done it better or faster by myself.
    Great knowledge of music and fun to work with!

    As an artist, every time I write a new song feels like giving birth to a little baby. Therefore, I try to spoil each of my children by surrounding them with the best people and give them everything I have at hand. Fortunately, I've met Agustín, someone who understands and shares my passion for music and someone who I can now call a friend. He is a very nice person and works with lots of dedication whenever he encounters a new job. Can't stop recommending this man as a partner in an artist' journey. Thank you Agas!

    I worked with Agustín on several projects, he always gives 100% until you reach your expectations, he is also very kind and delivers on time.

    He was the mixer (and producer) of the last Santa Garcia record.

    Agustín is a very talented mixing/mastering engineer, producer and arranger. We've worked together on both short and long term projects with excellent results. He puts his best on every song and truly knows how to listen. If you are looking for someone who will take your song to another level, he is the one who you are looking for. Don't hesitate to ask him precisely what you need because he will get to it fast and beautiful.

    I work with Agus whenever he's available, he's so attentive and talented. Every time I need a work done with no corners cut I go to him.
    I do mostly mastering with him and he just does magic, he becomes so involved with the work at hand that the artist, the musicians and me, we all listen to the finished track astonished, like we just found out what the meaning of real art is.
    Every time.
    I cannot overstate how good is to work with him. 7 stars

Interview with Agustín Pugh

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: Tuve Suficiente - Reicaiga They had a very bare-bones demo that needed a lot of work and an extremely low budget, but we had a pretty clear vision of how it needed to sound. So I did most of the production myself, recorded all the guitars and bass, hired a session drummer, get them to re-record the vocals, and did all the editing, mixing, and mastering. The result was pretty epic and they loved it!

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

  4. A: Mixing an album from an artist called Fabo, and an EP for Días Después. Both amazing punk rock bands from Uruguay.

  5. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  6. A: Pablo Alvarez Vilariño, best bass guitar player I know and a joy to work with!

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: The sound that is in my head, I'll get there anyway. I just work faster and more efficiently in Digital.

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

  10. A: That I will always be going to do my best for them.

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

  12. A: Hearing the clients get happy and excited about the song is the best.

  13. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  14. A: Q: How the hell did you do that?! A: The song is great!

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

  16. A: That we make everything sound poppy and steal money from our clients.

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

  18. A: What is your vision? What do you wanna say to the world? What sounds do you like?

  19. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  20. A: Try to make a connection with someone who respects you, understands your vision, and is willing to grow with you.

  21. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  22. A: My laptop and a pair of headphones it's all I really need.

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

  24. A: I've been surrounded by music and art since I was a child, I play piano and guitar. I started studying music back in 2016, then discovered the world of production and mixing, and fell in love with it. I graduated as a Music Producer/Musician from EMC (Berklee Affiliate). I've been doing this professionally for 5 years now.

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  26. A: I love emotional music that makes a statement.

  27. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  28. A: I'd love to work with an artist with a fresh, clear vision that brings something new to the industry. Maybe that is you ;)

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

  30. A: Work fast, don't overthink and rest in between sessions. Reference with the best artists.

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

  32. A: I work with a lot of different genres: punk, indie rock, pop, and pop punk. I love music with dense instrumentation and - in your face - vocals.

  33. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  34. A: Making the song tell a story.

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

  36. A: Clarity, energy, impact.

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

  38. A: If I'm going to mix, I first start by doing my prep. Create a session and keep it very organized, so that when it's time to mix, I can move fast and efficiently. I found that the less I "think", the more exciting the output. Also, it is extremely important to listen to the song, understand the vibe, and have a clear vision before moving any faders.

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: I have a pretty minimalist setup: Near field monitors, headphones, an audio interface, and a couple of mics and instruments ready to go. For me, it's about maintaining an efficient and focused workflow.

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

  42. A: I find great inspiration from artists like Green Day, Blink 182, State Champs, Silverstein, Bring Me The Horizon, Dua Lipa, Justin Bieber, Charlie Puth, and also producers like Zakk Cervini, Sam Guaiana, Chris Lord Alge, Tom Lord Alge, Serban Ghenea, and Manny Marroquin.

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

  44. A: Mixing.
