Adrian Gariba on SoundBetter

I've mixed, produced and written projects for Warner Music, Armada Music, Strange Music, Auryn64. Produced and mixed top 5 Billboard charting soundtrack. I currently own a commercial studio in Toronto, Canada. I have a Diploma in Audio Engineering from IAR in New York and have worked in the industry for 20 years.

If you are interested in working with me I usually like to hear a rough mix from your song first. I thrive on communication and enjoy hearing as many ideas as possible. I am able to mix, tune vocals, and edit to a high level. I can also mix both in the box and in console or as hybrid depending on the needs of a project. I have had mentors in Pop, Rock and Rap/Trap throughout my learning years and have no leaning towards a specific genre. I've also designed synthesizer plugins for Reason Studios "The Synthwave plugin" and have an affinity to nostalgic music programming. I am also able to speak basic Mandarin, French and fluent English (My first language). I do include a master in all my mixes for free but always recommend my clients to seek 3rd party mastering if their budget permits.

    I have been working with Adrian for years. He has always delivered on time and with the utmost quality. I have also got an analog console mix from him recently and it sounded amazing. Not only is he a talented engineer, he is also well versed in production and composition.

Interview with Adrian Gariba

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

  2. A: I produced and mixed a song on the In Search of Darkness soundtrack. I'm proud of it because I was a huge 80s horror movie fan and anything connected to John Carpenter was big for me. The soundtrack also charted on Billboard top 5 Electronic which also helped. :)

  3. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  4. A: Both! Analog has a tone that is still hard to capture in plugins. Digital has instant recall and much better automation and editing.

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