Studio Spotlight 8/12

Name:

Alejo Gonzáles a.k.a. Invader! (ohmicide on Gearslutz and IDMF)

Music Style:

Electro House, Dubstep, Drumstep, etc.

Workflow:

I basically just decide on a genre and tempo, bring some drums and maybe some synths from a previous project, then start writing and arranging. I mix as I go and am always constantly changing sounds to make them fit together better, same with my drums which never end up the same as other projects although still pretty similar which is part of my sound.

Mastering wise, I mix through a 20hz low cut and my limiter bossting around 20-25dB for all the headroom I could possibly need.

After going through a lot of phases, different hardware synths (analog and digital), midi controllers, recording interfaces, etc. I arrived at the conclusion that I much rather work all ITB, at least for now.
