Recording Audio/ Mix Engineer, and Owner of GoldMindStudios (Est. 2015), Will Santos has spent the past 12 years growing and perfecting his craft of tracking and mixing music for artists of many genres specializing in Hip-Hop, R&B and Pop. Will’s passion for audio began early on, in middle school, with the purchase of his very first audio interface in 2003. He dedicated all his time and efforts into his passion of working with audio and the many ways you can manipulate sounds plus the effect it has on a person’s emotions. This same passion continues as fresh as the first time he hit record for his very first client. When Will is not in the studio (which is hardly EVER) he enjoys to venture out into nature for long hikes as well as having a genuine interest for the art of cooking which he believes could have possibly been his alternate career. Ultimately Will Santos hopes that his facility and team can provide the most comfortable in-studio experience, leaving a long-lasting impression for every single person that walks through the GoldMindStudios' door.
