Hello, I'm Marco from Argentina. I play piano & keys. My specialty styles include: rock, gospel, neo soul, r&b, funk, pop and -why not?- tango ;)

I'm a session musician. I have a Roland RD-150 electric piano, a Novation Xtation synth and a Korg Kross workstation. I usually work with sample-based sound and controllers as, for example, Kontakt, which offers many real sound sampled libraries, such as Alicia Keys piano, Scarbee Mark I Rhodes, etc.
So if you need me just let me know!

    Working with Marco was nice and quick – he responded the same day and delivered the order the next day. He played the piano part exactly as it was written and also gave two extra takes with arrangement variations. In addition, he chose a great, realistic-sounding piano software. I'd gladly work with him again in the future!

Interview with Marco Gnoatto

Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
I'm working and I will continue to work with my wife in a duo as producer and pianist. With my band Savia, we're all friends and they always have something beautiful to share. Also, I did several songs with Jazzy D through SoundBetter and I'm very proud of how those songs are sounding.
What are you working on at the moment?
I'm working on recordings, backing tracks, and playing live with a gospel choir.
Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
I would recommend Ezequiel Rivas if you want a killer bass, I played with him a lot and he's truly amazing and has a beautiful gear. Also, I would recommend Jazzy D, whom I met through SoundBetter, it does great productions and he's a top guy.
Analog or digital and why?
I'm a digital guy. I love the portability and the sound now it's amazing.
What's your 'promise' to your clients?
That I will try my best every time and that the job won't end until they are happy with the result.
What do you like most about your job?
To do new things and, thanks to SoundBetter, to be able to do it anywhere in the world.
What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
If I can deliver the midi also, and my answer is: "Yeah, no problem".
What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
That sample-based instruments are inferior to the real ones.
What questions do you ask prospective clients?
I ask them if they have any reference music I can listen to, if they can deliver a multitrack, if they know the BPM of the song and some other technical stuff.
What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
I always try to play what the customer needs/wants or I won't be happy.
If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A computer, a good controller, a Hammond, a mixer and really nice and comfy headphones (cause the birds and sea would upset my hearing if I choose monitors :p)
What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
I started to play piano at 8, becoming a professor of classical piano and musical theory at 18. I had my first bands in high school. Then I studied jazz, tango and folklore. My career began immediately after that, playing with many and really different bands, recording, making backing tracks, composing for theater plays, etc. So I started to play 32 years ago, but I would say that my career started 20 years ago.
How would you describe your style?
I don't really know how to describe it. It would be a mix of all the styles I learned over the years.
Which artist would you like to work with and why?
Stevie Wonder, cause he's the God of music to me.
Can you share one music production tip?
Always listen to the other musicians and play with them.
What type of music do you usually work on?
I love all kinds of music, so I want to get involved in recording all genres, always accepting my limitations and staying true to the customers.
What's your strongest skill?
I would say creativity.
What do you bring to a song?
I try to deliver what the customer and the song need.
What's your typical work process?
I listen to the song a couple of times and then I start to play over the song till I find something. Then I record and listen to it to see if I like it, and then I maybe record a second option to send to the customer so he can choose.
Tell us about your studio setup.
I use Cubase 9 artist in a Dell Laptop with an i7 processor, 16Gb of RAM and 1,5Tb of SSD. I mostly use vst libraries (like Omnisphere 2, Kontakt), but I have a Scarlet 2i 4 2nd gen to record audio from the following keys: Roland RD-150, MicroKorg XL, Korg Kross, Novation XStation.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
Although I get inspired by a lot of musicians that play all kind of instruments the ones that always get me inspired are Shaun Martin and Cory Henry from Snarky Puppy, and Stevie Wonder.
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
I record pianos, keys and synths.
