Grammy nominated engineer offering top quality mastering services, including mastering for vinyl and streaming platforms. Try stem mastering if you wanna see an average mix blossom for a fraction of the time and cost of a mix engineer!
I'm here to help you getting your song to sound like it does in your dreams and ideally even better!
Over the past 10+ years I have mastered and worked on music of all kinds and got it placed in many movies, adverts and games. In 2020 I received a Grammy nomination for the Bones UK song "Pretty Waste" which I have produced and mastered. I strive to get the most appropriate sound for a song and do whatever it takes to get there.
Everyone has different mastering needs and subjective taste is often a big part of the final decision so make sure to send me a message describing your preferences (how loud you'd like it, how bright/dark etc) and include a couple of references in order to make sure we're on the same page.
I normally charge $100 per song but I'm happy to do $50 for a limited amount of time as an introductory offer here on Soundbetter!
If you also need a master for vinyl it's only an extra $20 per song and if you want I can also run your master through a fresh type IV metal cassette which yields a gorgeous 3D sound for an extra $40 per song.
Stem mastering always leaves clients amazed with the results because it gives me the ability to go in and focus on individual elements enough to make a mix truly come alive but without being able to compromise the original vision - contact me if you're interested in it!

Filippo is a superb professional with an exceptional ear for finding what's right for the music when it comes to mastering. He's able to elevate a track to a place where everything is in harmony. Quite simply, his masters sound amazing! On the practical side of things, a really fast service with great communication, openness and insight. Would very highly recommend him as an exceptional Mastering Engineer.
Filippo is an absolute pro. Very easy to work with as well, which is hard to find in an industry full of ego. If you need someone to elevate your mix and get it to where you imagine it should be, he's the guy to do it. Will definitely hire him in the future for mastering!
Filippo has been my go-to guy for mastering for a long time. After sporadically working with other engineers, I always came back to him. No matter the genre, it always comes out perfect. Highly recommend!
Filippo has been my go to mastering engineer for just under 10 years. Clients of mine have opted to go with other mastering engineers and I always recommend Filippo do a master too, we put them up against each other and his masters win every single time.
Filippo Just adds that extra something to my mixes that make me use him every single time, he's the best.
