My name is Alécio Costa. I am a musician/singer/producer/recording engineer.
I own a small digital recording studio in the south of Brazil based around Yamaha 02R/01V, Pro Tools Mix and some nice but not expensive outboard gear.
I am 32 years old. I have a background in electric engineering, specialization in power electronics ( many many time ago!!!-hehehe) and have produced over 30 CDs in the last 5 years.
Some jobs have been quite good, being exposed at GUITAR PLAYER BRAZIL , MTV as well as received some local prizes.
I have lots to learnr and like to trade experiences and tips.
I also teach a course named INTRODUCTION TO DIGITAL RECORDING SYSTEMS AND UPGRADE IN MUSICAL TECHNOLOGY. I have had lots of students but that also makes me research and learn a lot from guys like Nika, Ronny Morris, Brad B, Joe and very good friends I have met at other forums like the DUC, the prosoundweb, rec org and now very recently on here.
I generally have to deal with budget projects, so due to the situation of the dollar in Brazil very recently, things shall become quite difficult. As soon as possible, I want to upgrade my consoles to the 02R 96K and at the right moment, go from MIx plus to PTHD2.
Thanks and keep up the good job!
