Canelada HC new EP selft-titled is out! 

This was a fun one to work on: we tracked the instrumentals live in a few hours (just a few overdubs and doubling guitars) and vocals were done on a different day.

Input chain is the same as “always” with Apollo x8p with API Vision strip and Studer tape in all inputs.
Drum mics were from a cheap Chinese drum mic kit (I don't even remember the name/brand) but the overheads were a pair of Warm Audio WA84.
Vocals through a SM7.

Enjoy! 

Lugubra - "Decolonial" new single is out now! 

From about 20 years of collaboration (different band names, but the same musicians) comes this new single called “Decolonial” from the Brazilian metal band “Lugubra” (previously Drearylands).
I was tasked with mixing and mastering a self-produced and self-recorded (apart from vocals) album that comes out soon.
For now, you can enjoy their first single below
 

Briga - "La Fête" music video out now! 

This is a good one, mainly because I was part of the whole process, from rehearsal, to tracking, mixing and mastering AND because it is NOT my typical rock/metal type of project that you see here often.
We tracked the song's rhythm section live and Hotel2Tango in Montreal, overdubs were made at Music Salad's studio, and all that in just a few weeks, from start to finish.
I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did!

Thiago Castro - "Why Not?" single is out now! 

Last year I had the pleasure to spend an afternoon inside a normal rehearsal room  with some extra-talented musician friends (Thiago Castro on Drums, Lucas Barnery on Guitar, and Thiago Baumgarten on Bass) and that afternoon generated two awesome tunes, this one linked below and a fully live jam, named “Peanut Butter”

Thiago Castro, Lucas Barnery & Tiago Baumgarten - "Peanut Butter" live recording 

A few months ago I went to a rehearsal room with three long-time friends and amazing musicians from Salvador, Bahia - Brazil.
They jammed for a few hours and two songs came out of that jam. This is one of those songs.
The setup was pretty simple:
Universal Audio Apollo x8p and another silver face Apollo.
All tracks were recorded through API Legacy strips and Studer A800 tape, all committed to the recording.
No samples were used.
The guitar was recorded direct via a Kemper and the bass was also recorded direct, no amps in the room.
Enjoy,

Malamor - "Dead To The World" mix 

Hi there,

This was supposed to be part of a mix contest that I did not have the time to submit to (nor do I believe in mix contests), so I just mixed it for fun, so I don't have anything to do with the recordings (they do sound great though)

I'm using mostly native Universal Audio plugins (just a couple of DSP-based ones), no samples, all from the multi-tracks (actually, the kick is from an Alesis D4) 

Enjoy

The Superstitions - "Snake Charmer" single is out 

Welcome to 2023,
The first release of the year comes out as a single of an EP I had the pleasure to play drums for, and engineer the recordings for the rest of the instrumentals during the pandemic.
Tracks were mixed and mastered using UA's LUNA.
Drums were tracked in a low-ceiling basement using a UA Apollo x8p with 8 channels of API Legacy strips via UNISON. Tracks were EQ'd and compressed "to tape".
- RE20 on the kick
- i5 on the snare
- 421 for toms and floor toms
- Ribbons for overheads
Guitars were recorded through an amp and DI, the same for the bass tracks with the added Darkglass B7K (main bass tone) track. 
I hope you enjoy it!
