27 Reviews - 3 Repeat ClientsEndorse Eliud "Liu" Ortiz
Eliud Is not a mixing and mastering engineer, he is a Magician !!
I gave him 10 songs for mixing and mastering , he returned to me a totally different 10 songs !! Eliud was very professional, very patient and very nice guy. This was our first experience with Soundbetter, we believe that having Eliud among their list is quite enough to come back again .
Eliud mixed and mastered our last track. We are very impressed with all of hard work and time that Liu put into our music. Communication was excellent, and we gave us everything he got and made our song his as well.
Eliud is a beast! As pro as you can get! The mixes he did for me sound awesome. There was great communication from the start. Eliud is a real pleasure to work with. He was able and willing to address the very minor adjustments to the mix I requested. I highly recommend Eliud's mixing services! I'll definitely be working with him on future projects.
This was my first mixing and mastering experience and Eluid has set the bar extremely high. His knowledge of music and experience is impeccable. He continued to improve the mix even when I thought it was great, his ear is great. Friendly and easy to work with. Highly recommend.

Liu is legend!
I had excellent communication and turnaround of the tracks I wanted with rough mixes to show the direction of travel to begin with. This was really appreciated and meant I was able to trust we were on the same page and he gave me a lot of encouragement in the music.
Liu showed professional engagement, genuine enthusiasm, understanding when I wanted to tweak aspects of the sound, responsive to adjustments, offered his own insight and the quality of his mix was incredible!
Eliud is extremely professional and incredibly reliable. He understands the client's needs and idea. He's a perfectionist and a hard worker, too. Thank you very much for your great mix & mastering on my produced track. It's real pleasure working with you! Very good job, I'm really very happy with it!!!
Eliud has lifted our songs amazingly!! With the recordings we sent him he has managed to brighten and polish them attaining a professional sound. He understands and believes in our art! He has become another band member. we are happy working with Liu!
Eliud took our mix and turned it into a full and well rounded professional song. He was with us on every step asking for our opinion and being very focused on what we wanted to achieve. He turns into another member of the band and doesn't rest 'till the song is perfect. 100% totally recommend him!
Liud is like another member of the band! He has polished our mixes and mastered our songs the best way we could imagine. He knows best and we are glad to worik with him.
A++ service guaranteed!
Time and time again Eliud has proven himself to be the finest mastering engineer I could imagine. The levels that Eliud takes my music is beyond what I thought the music could go. He is enthusiastic, willing, talented, and most of all he takes consideration into what is best for THAT track in particular, as a-pose to presets mastering. I have used other mastering engineers previously to Eliud but never considered looking elsewhere from the moment he mastered my first Single. HIGHLY Recommended.
Amazing job! Recommended!
Eliud is a serious engineer. If you want someone who is passionate and ready to work he's your man! My song needed a lot of different revisions and tweaks. And Eliud was willing to keep working to make sure everything turned out well! I even had to leave and go on a trip, and when I came back he was still accessible and willing to work with me. Creating music is a very tedious process and having a dedicated Engeneer like Eliud has made a huge difference.
Hands down the highest quality engineer on soundbetter.
He did a nice crispy master
Eliud's work on my project was top-notch, and I am totally pleased with the results he got. During our initial conversations, he really listened to my ideas and told me truthfully what was possible and doable on my budget (given the fact that I didn't have multi-track source material). I appreciate such honesty and professionalism, and I highly recommend Eliud for mixing and mastering work.
Amazing the only word that remotely even comes close to the experience I had with Eliud. Please believe the hype there is a reason why this guys credit sheet is so long.I have never worked with a engineer, that was dedicated to seeing my songs vision come to life. The art of music is still alive because people like Eliud exist. This guy was a blessing from above
First time working with Eliud on a track and definitely not the last. He has a vast musical knowledge as well as passion for the song. He took my song and added that little extra that I couldn't have thought of taking the song to the next level. He is very reliable and works quick to achieve a great result. Pleasure to work with. In the words of my husband: Eliud has a sophisticated ear. He produced a vintage yet modern sound on the mix he did for us, which is so infectious.
He was very professional and discussed his ideas with me before implementing them. extremly satisfied!!!
I have known and worked with Eluid “Liu” Ortiz for many years now.
Everything that comes off his fingertips sounds great!
I endorse him as being a sonic expert and creative with his mixes.
Whoever has the pleasure of working with him, just know that you have a seasoned professional controlling the buttons, knobs and faders.
Quentin Entertainment Inc
As an Artist Manager, Producer and Label Owner I have had the extreme pleasure of working with some of the giants in this industry of music. I have worked w/ Teddy Riley, Quincy Jones and Bruce Swedien. I have watched Liu mature as a musician and a mix engineer. Lui is my go2guy because he understands frequencies and how they go together make a superior sounding record. If you want that knock he will give it to you without compromising quality and if there is an adjustment that you may require one phone call or text to Lui & he is own it w/o having ANY ego about it. In 2 words "the Greatest"
I am a songwriter /producer and it was my first time working with Liu.
Liu' s mixes are awesome! Very transparent,perfectly EQed, not overcompressed yet really solid with the thick and thumpy low end - simply beautiful,creative and thoughtful mixing. This is what you get if you are dealing with a truly talented person with an in depth understanding of what music really is,no matter the genre.
Even though personality compatibility is hard to predict, let me assure Liu is a great professional with a great personality, the person you want to sit next to on a long plane flight.
I am a Grammy nominated music producer and composer. I have worked with Liu on several projects and I couldn't be happier with his work. Asides from being a great professional he's incredibly easy to work with. Love your work Liu and I am looking forward to working with you again!!!!
Liu Is a master at what he does! He is passionate about the music and presenting the finest product possible. As a team player he gets into the hearts and minds of the music creators to understand the feel they want to convey and how to take it to the next level. He is committed to the music and creates a level of trust not easily found in today’s music landscape.
I’ve been working with Liu for years, starting when we did some work with Shaggy. I was so impressed I hired him to record and mix my next production project. His technical skills are off the charts and he’s a great problem solver and colleague. So it was a no-brainer to have him do mixing and mastering work on my solo album, coming out soon. Liu doesn’t quit until you’re happy with his work.
Lou is one hell of a guy and someone I’m proud to call my friend. I’m an independent artist and we all know how hard of a road that is. So many people blow smoke up your ass and say they got you or can help, until it’s time to put up or shut up. Lou not only showed up he showed out 100% I will definitely be hiring him again in the future and I look forward to making more beautiful music together
Lou is a masterful engineer. Within a couple days he delivered his first mix of our track, and it was a night and day difference from the previous mix. Over the next couple weeks, Lou took my feedback and experimented with 6 additional mixes before we were both very satisfied with the result. I highly recommend Lou for both his mixing and mastering prowess.
I’ve hired and worked with Lou on various major label gold and platinum recording projects. Lou has always gone above and beyond the call of duty both professionally and sonically. His keen understanding of both music and technology coupled with an appreciation of multiple music genres is what makes Lou one of the leading mix engineers in the business

A: I work on a little of everything. Hip hop, Latin, Pop Reggae and rock(metal). I LOVE music!! All MUSIC!!! Well maybe not all. LMAO!
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I like to listen to the song demo before I start mixing a song at least a few times to get a feel of the song and to see the direction the writer , artist or producer was going in. As I am mixing the song I strive to carry that feel over to the mix. As well I talk to and listen to what the producer has to say in what he or she wants. They have to express themselves to me as to how they see the song. I am rather old school.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Sure just Listen! Listen to the producer. Listen to artist and most importantly Listen to the music your making.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: They ask me at times "do I mind trying something different?" While working on the song. And my answer is "let's do it!
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill is my ability to understand and translate what the artist and producer want to hear from their song.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: To many to mention. But one of my favorites is when I mixed a record for Luther Vandross on his album "The Best Of Love" Volume II, the song is "It's All About You" .

Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What is it that you want this song to sound like? Or what do you feel it should be.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Make sure that you hire someone that doesn't see you as a dollar sign. Because if he does he'll only put in as much work as you pay him.

A: Ok the abridged version is I started as an intern cleaning tiolets and making coffee at a studio in midtown Manhattan called Sound works(the original). And worked my way up to eventually recording engineer to mixing engineer. Through many different studios.
