Davide Avagnina on SoundBetter

When you find what you love you do it for a lifetime.

I started as a child on my father's guitar and on a computer. I continued my journey through production by learning about the best tools to work sound better. After a year as a computer technician I realized that my world is here, behind a pair of audio monitors.
Now I study sound engineering in the course of "New Technologies" at the school of Alto Perfezionamento Musicale in Saluzzo and I work on a big production project for a live band, creating backing tracks, programming midi sequences, lights and video.
I hope to start also a harmony class for vocal groups soon, it's my new dream. The first has already been achieved.

Interview with Davide Avagnina

  1. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  2. A: I'm working on a live project for a band, I prepare the project tracks and program the live show.

  3. Q: What's your typical work process?

  4. A: Normally I start prepare a session at 8 or 9 o'clock. Drink a coffee and setting up my pc, pour a bit of good whisky in a glass, then I start.

  5. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  6. A: It's very easy. The studio heart is a Studio 192 M. by Presonus, it drives my monitors and signal routing.

  7. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  8. A: The biggest misconception is certainly "loud is better". Yes, there’re genres where loudness is more important then dynamic, but in a lot of other genres it destroys instruments’ relations that the mix engineer gives to the track.

  9. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  10. A: Hybrid, because it allows you to take advantage of the color of equalizers, compressors, every machine you want to use, always with the practicality of DAWs.
