    It's been a great pleasure to work with Alessandro again! He's a very professional audio engineer and a great musician as well! All the projects I've been involved in were very inspiring and we will cooperate again for sure! Communicating with is very easy and there is no room for misunderstanding during the workflow!

    Alessandro is an outstanding sound engineer! He's super reliable and professional thanks to his experience gained in decades of work with many artists and many music styles; he always knows how to improve your ideas and enhance your mix/master confering your project an unique and professional sound!! He's a great arranger as well, so if you are looking for someone to give life a new song starting just with a rough idea you've found the perfect pro!!

  3. Review by Michele D.

    In more than 20 years of musical activity i have recorded various things gaining experience in different recording studios.At Virus studio, however,i made 4CDs and various singles.The results have always been very valid, characterized by a high technical level and this was fundamental to give the band an image of professionalism that not everyone has.The remarkable quality of the CDs has always favored us over other musical groups who,not understanding the importance of a professional mix and mastering, prefer to do the work alone.It's not only the equipment that makes an engineer a good one.

    Alessandro is the best sound engineer I've worked with.

    He simply guides your work and ideas toward an outstanding result.
    Technically prepared, creative and customer-oriented.
    If you want to bring your music to the next level he's the person to engage.

  6. Review by Jacopo Palumbo

    Working with Alessandro it's always a real pleasure.

    He really knows how to work in order to reach the goals of his customers because he has got a huge experience in different genres and the right sensibility as well.
    I really enjoy that he's able to listen carefully to your needs: he really just wants you to be satistfied with the final result!

    One of the songs he mixed and mastered for my band ("Italian Soccer" by Red Light Skyscraper, 2021) was choosen by the editorial team from Spotify and added to the big playlist "All New Rock", a great achievement that I am so proud of!

  7. Review by ferrucciospinetti

    I was lucky enough to meet Alessandro almost 20 years ago. He supervised many of my works, Avion Travel, Musica Nuda and the recording and mixing process of the two InventaRio albums.

    The second cd "InventaRio Incontra Ivan Lins" also earned us a nomination for the 2014 Latin Grammy in the MPB category.

    Alessandro's passion and sensitivity are his main characteristics and thanks to his knowledge of various musical genres, I was able to experience what it means to give added value to a composition.

  8. Review by Leonardo B.

    I have worked with Alessandro along with my band, Red Light Skyscraper, on many projects, including our first album, Still the Echo (2017), and the singles Matisse and 4 AM. Thanks to his enormous experience, the mixes have always been extremely consistent with the sound we we were looking for and, at the same time, characterised by his style.
