    In addition to being one of my great friends in my profession, Esteban, as a composer and sound engineer, not only surprises you but also the following, turns your ideas into music, sounds and silences in an extraordinary way. His work has printed the soundtracks of my short films with superlative artistic quality. For my next short film I wish to count on his talent again.

    He trabajado con él un par de veces, es un productor muy pulido y muy paciente. Me ayudó mucho con la voz, maneras de grabar y manejar mi voz para que sea mejor. También me dio algunas clases de mezcla y es el mejor profesor que he tenido.

  7. Review by Gabriel L.

    Esteban is a great professional in production, mixing and mastering. Skilful, recursive, meticulous and full of ideas that grow any project in which he is a part. He has a secret weapon and is his musical training since he was just a child that makes him an excellent partner when you work with him.
    Working on a project with Esteban is having the true balance between the artistic and the technical.

    I've been mixing and mastering some of my songs with Esteban for up to a year now, and I found not only a very neat and proficient sound engineer with a great music background, but also a helping hand creatively speaking. He's very prone to detail and the pieces to him must convey emotion as well as sound quality which makes him a great element to ensure great results. Recommended 100%

    Esteban did a fabulous job recording and mixing my 27-min. long piece for large orchestra and 3 soloists. During the mixing process, I was able to see first-hand his outstanding engineering skills and his deep artistic concern for the details. In addition, he's just a cool guy to work with.
