“I woke up from a dream and knew I had to build a studio in Ibiza. I fell in love with the island after a visit the previous year and it was clear to me I needed to make a leap,” Sarmiento explains.
Three weeks later, Sarmiento moved to Spain and launched Sonic Vista. It was the first studio to have Pro Tools | Ultimate and HDX on the island. “I’m always evolving the studio, but one thing remains: it will only ever be Pro Tools for me. I’ve tried other DAWS, but the stereo outputs sound terrible. I can’t go there. It’s HDX or nothing.”
