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

  30. A: I just gave this tip to a colleague of mine. When I receive drum tracks and the toms are dry and without resonance, what I do is: 1. With a semi-parametric equalizer like the fabfilter 3 or a spectrum analyzer, find the main frequency of the tom 2. Make a send (pre-fader) to a mono auxiliary bus, in that mono bus insert a test oscillator and set the frequency at which the original tom resonates 3. On that same bus apply a noise gate and link its input to the tom, this way the gate will respond every time the tom hits 4. Set the gate with a slow release and a medium attack, be careful with the hold, I suggest setting it to taste 5. This way you have your tom track and an auxiliary that adds resonance, calibrates volumes and is ready to MIX

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

  32. A: Rock, Pop, Latin, Urban, R&B, Ballad songs

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

  38. A: It depends on the music genre how I start a mix. But I always check track by track how is the quality. If there is an audio which has a "recording mistake", I fixed it by processing with different audio techniques. I don't start the mix until I get sure all the tracks sounds good without a plugin, that's the secret of mixing.

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: SSL2+ and Focusrite 18i20 Beyerdynamic 990 and Audio Technicca M50 Monitors KRK Rokit gen 5 Monitors ADAM A7V
