  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: In my case I prefer digital because it offers you many facilities when working, such as portability, with current plugins it is possible to do a completely professional job, but it is also important to add that the analog world has its advantages and it is that music sounds much more natural and alive to the digital world

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

  12. A: What I like most about my work is expressing myself through music because I am a somewhat shy person when it comes to sharing with people and because my art helps me break down those barriers created by me, I like to transmit sensations through of my art

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

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

  16. A: to believe that there is an absolute truth in music, to believe that there are rules in music, to inhibit an artist in his art

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

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

  30. A: The best advice I can give is to be free when you're making music, that's what this is all about, enjoy the process and that's how people connect with your art.

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

  32. A: House, EDM, Trap, Hip hop, Reggaeton, Afrobeats, Dancehall

  33. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  34. A: the creation of beats, because I capture all the music that I like and summarize it in that composition

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

  36. A: I tried to give it my personal touch both in composition and in post production, I like that the songs transmit a message and have a soul, if a song does not have that, then I will try to take it there

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

  38. A: It depends a lot on what the objective is where you want to take the production, if it is creating a beat I really like creating a chord progression that carries the vibe of the whole song, for me the chords are the main axis of the song along with the drums, when I'm mixing I work with the top down mixing technique because I have more control over the dynamics of the mix and it helps me reach my goal quickly, for mastering I like not to take the songs to absurd volumes because that takes away the life to the songs maximum 7lufs

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: I don't have a million-dollar studio, I have a home studio where I have only UAD Apollo Solo, for voice capture I have an AKG C214, some Rokit 5 monitors, but I do the mixes through headphones, which are the Audiotechnica M40x

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

  42. A: I really like the type of music that kanye west makes which is hip hop but he takes it to the next level doing experimental things with the genre, I also really like the new generations like travis, post, drake

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

  44. A: I usually do mixing and mastering works of Latin urban genres, but I have also mixed genres such as trap, rnb and soul.
