"The king of audio, Alberto has great intution, taste and a magical inclination towards the sublime. An expert in his field."
- Keith Mulligan , Musician - The Hooks
"Alberto is an exceptional engineer and human being. Like any world-class engineer, he has a great ear, fine attention to detail, problem solving skills, can-do attitude, ultimate professionalism, and endless patience. The reason I have worked with Alberto so often is that he's a musician who can quickly make sense of complicated contemporary classical music scores. He's also a good person to hang out with for many hours at a time while tracking/editing/mixing. As a classical musician specializing in modern music, I am grateful that I can just give Alberto a score to any piece at the start of a session and we can get to work with minimal discussion."
