I am here to make your tracks impeccable and radio ready!
I run a mixing and mastering service called Tough Sale. I master mostly hip hop music and classical. My background is made of a lot of classical music because I am a successful classical musician, I have been touring internationally and played as guitarist in many renown venues around the world for 20 years and I believe that this experience made me develop characteristics that give me a slight advantage compared to other engineers and an extra edge in mastering and mixing. I am very passionate about hip hop music, I need it, and it drives my positivity in life. My masters are DIFFERENT because I try to impersonate in the vision and the story of the song. I am a deep listener and I try to recreate in my mind a profound picture of how the song should sound before I even start working on the sonics. My approach is music not numbers, sometimes I don´t use software at all because I feel it takes away a bit of soul in the tracks, I use mostly tube gear with high headroom to reach loudness with minimum distorsion and for conversion I use Burl IN & OUT. The results are big sounding masters and mixes and no compromises. I respect the idea of the artist or the producer, I just make the tracks sound polished, extemely musical and punchy when needed.
