Who’s Behind Mixing Mastermind?
Hi, My name is Gelot Macaranas aka GMac.
I am MixingMastermind’s creator as well as the founder of GMAC Productions, my own production company. I am a freelance music producer, audio engineer, youtuber, singer-songwriter residing in the Philippines.
A jack of all trades, I used to be all over the place, confused as to what to do in life. Seems like I’m bragging, but I was born with so many gifts. I remember my much younger self announcing to the world, “I want to be an astronaut someday!” I had this unusual feeling in my gut that I couldn’t comprehend. Oh, man, I was so sure of the dream. Then, after wanting to become a space walker, I thought of becoming a computer engineer, a painter, an airplane pilot, a doctor, a social worker, a newscaster and the richest person in the world! So many dreams, so little time!
Speaking of time, my pivotal moment came quite early in life, when my mom gave me a small toy piano as a gift. My eyes twinkled. My tiny fingers played the small buttons as if they were big piano tiles that produced the melody I heard. And then I saw my mom play the guitar. As a result – that was the beginning of my life-long romance with music.
Changes in time
Six years into existence, I learned to stretch my fingers across the guitar frets. At age 8, I wrote my first song. By the time I was 14, a big record producer heard one of my songs and proposed to sign me up for a recording stint. Not only that, a well-regarded chorale group used my song for a performance at a prestigious university here in the Philippines. In high school, I had theater acting stints. At 19, my cousin and I formed our band called, Blu Syndrome, which we later renamed ChapterJuan. I had a taste of how it was to perform on stage. It was exhilarating!
Coach and Manager
By my mid-twenties, things beautifully shifted for me as far as my career was concerned. I became a corporate manager in Sitel, one of the world’s biggest BPO companies handling multi-million dollar accounts. Due to the extensive Leadership Programs I attended in the company, coaching and training people to become leaders became part of DNA. That was the start of another life-long romance with teaching and coaching.
Mom and Music
My corporate life was fully blessed with plenty of achievements and promotions until another life-changing event happened which paved way for me to go back to my first love – Music.
I realized that Music is what my heart has been beating for, all these years. I had the privilege of writing songs with my mom, and she encouraged me to follow my heart and my passion – the gentle push she needed to give me before she passed on.
For 8 months, she fought lung cancer like a warrior by listening to Gospel songs. She even managed to co-write 3 remarkable songs with me. She had no idea how she inspired me leave a worthwhile career in the corporate world and rediscover the rewarding life that my passion still had in store. I have no regrets; no doubt about it, this was the best decision I have ever made!
My passion for Music further got me into the recording process. The frustration I had with recording in professional studios, which always burned a hole in my pocket, drove me to relentlessly find ways to record without spending a lot. As I was scouring the internet for information, I stumbled upon a music blog that opened my eyes to the possibility of home recording. This was the light bulb, the spark, that AHA moment that pulled everything together – music production at my fingertips (and yours, too!).
From Me To You
My three life-long romances; my passion for music, love for teaching, and fascination with the music production process, are perfectly merged into my desire to share and teach you valuable information on what you want to learn.
