3 ReviewsEndorse Filippo Barbieri
Filippo is great to work with. I've had many sessions recording bass with him. He pulls up a great sound straight away and his engineering skills ensured there was never a break in creative flow. His Pro Tools skills/musical ear meant were able to record all the options the producers wanted with ease. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Filippo. He is an asset to any recording project.
I had the pleasure to work on different productions with Filippo and i absolutely like his style and his workflow. He's a super talented producer/engineer and he's able to create the best vibe and mood that recording studios require. Highly recommended.
I have had the pleasure of being in a few sessions with Filippo and I have to say you won't find a more kind hearted, and genuine energy in the studio. He just loves music, and you see that in his work ethic and his attention to detail whether it be as an engineer, a mixer, or producer. He's in it everytime and invested just as much as you. A great person to have on your team in any session. -CA
Interview with Filippo Barbieri
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Every project is different and your skills set can always improve!
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Less is more and the importance for details at every stage of the production is what makes the song/s jump out among all the others.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: What I bring to a song is a sonic dimension and through my work my aim is to help the client to make his idea come to life.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: At the moment I'm working as engineer for the Irish band "The Script" on the forthcoming album. So far has been an amazing experience being part of the whole project since the songwriting stage. Will see what's coming up next!
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I love both and every project I would like use them equally. in fact, I believe the two combined can give you endless options! However, especially when it comes to mixing, I find myself 90% of the time to stay "in the box", so fully digital. At the end of the day, I think it's down to the client choose what's the best option! I will just explain pros and cons and give my personal opinion.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: Their satisfaction it's my main goal. Make them happy it's what I really care about!
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Josephson C716, Neve 1073, Empirical Labs Distressor, Laptop, UAD Apollo 8.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I believe communication and relationship with the client are my strongest skills. Just through these two elements I can really understand what direction the project needs to go and what the client would like from me. All the rest comes with experience and creativity!
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I like to take care of the whole production chain as much as possible. I move in between Production,Recording,Mixing and Mastering.
