I live in a small/medium radio market in central texas. Very often, when channel surfing on the radio I stop and listen to one of the two Spanish language radio stations (I think they're playing Christian music by what little I understand of Spanish). The reason I stop is because I like the sound of the recordings. The acoustic guitars and vocals are especially pleasing. It's something about the tone, it seems old and familiar, and I often listen even though I have no idea what they're singing about.

Is it just me, or has anybody else noticed this? Anybody here record for this market? What are you doing different from the pop and country market in terms of gear/techniques to get that great sound?

If it's just me, never mind. And if this is the wrong forum, sorry.

youll probalbly have to be more specific as to what style of latin music. is it texmex-country type, is it pop adult contemporary or rock in spanish. rap, regeton?

i heard some banda music or texmex styles music thats horrible but then you also have bands in south america that go to hollywood to record their albums. ocean way etc. so it varies a lot. if u are in texas maybe a lot of the recording come from monterrey mexico, from "el cielo" which is defenitly bigger better etc than anything ive seen in hollywood.



so in short, is basically the same gear , way etc. maybe its THE engineer who has his little secret recipe.

Style: contemporary Christian, sounds to me a lot like the classic singer-songwriter/slick folk stuff you'd hear on the "Loft" on satellite radio, only in Spanish. Definitely different from a lot of the Tejano music.

Thanks, I'll check out el cielo and I'll see if maybe the stations have a play list and I could run down the credits, maybe it is an enginero magnifico. Thanks.
