The details


Manny Marroquin (born September 21, 1971) is an American mixing engineer. He has received eight Grammy awards for his professional audio work.

Life and career

Marroquin's family moved to Los Angeles, California when he was nine due to the Guatemalan Civil War. After graduating from Alexander Hamilton High School in Los Angeles, he began working at Enterprise Studios as a runner and worked his way up to an engineering position. His professional breakthrough came during a late night session when a producer asked him to do a rough mix. The producer was impressed with Marroquin's work and asked him to mix the entire album.

As a mix engineer, Marroquin has worked with such well-known artists as Whitney Houston, 2Pac, Pink, John Mayer, Shakira, Maroon 5, Rihanna, Ludacris, Jazmine Sullivan, and Duffy.

He won his first Grammy in 2000 for Mary Mary's album, Thankful. In 2004, he received two Grammys for Album of the Year for Kanye West's The College Dropout, and Alicia Keys' The Diary of Alicia Keys. He earned a Grammy for his work on the album Get Lifted by John Legend In 2005, and Battle Studies by John Mayer in 2011. The Grammy Museum, which opened in Los Angeles in December 2008, acknowledged Marroquin's musical achievement with its mixing exhibit. The interactive exhibit allowed players to mix a track under the guidance of Marroquin.

Marroquin partnered with Waves Audio to release a bundle of virtual instrument effects. It was created in collaboration with Marroquin and includes EQ, Delay, Reverb, Tone Shaper, Triple D & Distortion plugins. The plugins have been marketed as personalized hybrid processors inspired by Marroquin's own workflow.

Marroquin resides in Los Angeles, California.
