C. Sainz on SoundBetter

As it sounds in your head, I´ll put it on your speakers.

I am a musician, producer and sound engineer with more than 25 years of experience. I have worked both live and in the studio with dozens of artists.

I have composed and recorded the original music for many documentaries of companies like Transglobe Films and Explora Films, directed by well-known filmmakers such as Manuel Morales or Gerardo Olivares (who was awarded with the "Espiga de Oro" at the Valladolid Film Festival).

I still have the same passion and enthusiasm with which I started and I would be happy to mix or produce your project in my studio.

I have a wonderful Solid State Logic 4000 E/G 64 input analog mixer in perfect condition. My main DAW is Pro Tools nurtured with a huge collection of pro audio plug ins from various top brands. I can also import sessions from Logic Pro.

I have multiple peripheral processing equipment both analog and digital. Modern and Vintage.

By the way, in a few weeks we will install an original Studer A800 24-track 2-inch recorder completely restored and overhauled so we can play with it ;)

Tell me about your project and how I can help, through the 'Contact' button above.

    I’ve worked for so long with Carlos in his studio. He worked in 9 records made for the best 9 emerging bands in Spain as a part of the Contest Vodafone yu Music Talent.

    The result was always perfect: the quality, the cost, the timing, the empathy, the intuition with the artists…Always better than predicted. His dedication & knowledge is incredible. His productions skills are very amazing.

    I will work with him again, and I would always recommend him!
