Rick is the fastest, most thorough and laid back engineer I've ever worked with. I've made two records with Rick, "New Monsoon V" w my band New Monsoon and another record called "Which Way World" with a band called The Contribution and both records are in my opinion perfectly recorded and mixed. If you need the best, Rick Vargas is the man for the job.Feb 8, 2013
Rick is a real pleasure to work with. I am producing a CD at TRI and Rick's engineering and mixing skills are stellar, and he always has some very astute suggestions to improve the sessions. I can always trust Rick's high sonic standards and willingness to operate outside the box!Feb 7, 2013
Our band, MerryGold, won a contest to record with Rick at TRI Studios for a day. Thanks to his talent, efficiency, and professionalism, we were able to make the most of our time there and accomplish our goals. It was a pleasure working with him and we hope it won't be the last time we do! Top class!Feb 7, 2013
I have been working with Rick tracking vocals, electic and acoustic guitars for some original music I composed. My experience has been outstanding. Ricks technical abilities, knowledge are first rate and he has an incredible ear. If you are looking for an outstanding product, I would highly recommend Rick and Popworks Music.Feb 7, 2013
Excellent Engineer and Producer has a great understanding of music theory. I've been working with Rick for years and having some one so talented behind the board really makes my job easier as an artist.Feb 6, 2013
- How did you get started doing this type of work?My whole life I've been a fan of listening to music. Coming from a family of technicians I also had a understanding of how mechanical and electrical things work. My fascination of recording came from seeing old photos of the Beatles and Motown artist being recorded. My grandfather obsessed over classical music and composed small pieces in his spare time. His passing was a final push into following my dreams as a producer engineer.
- What types of customers have you worked with?Engineering and Mixing is my passion. I strive to achieve a sound my client is looking for. To replicate Motown classics or polished modern day recordings. The past few years I feel I have produced quality mixes and mastered albums. I've had the privilege to work with such artist as DJ Shadow, Santana, Bob Weir, Journey and Sammy Hagar. Other artist such as Jonathan Wilson, Jackie Greene and Lucas Nelson are current mixing projects
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Don't be afraid to ask what rates are. If I'm into the music I'll do what I can to make it work within your budget. I work with all types of genres and recordings. Voice Over, Audio Books and Motion Pictures.
