Valerio M. on SoundBetter

I am a guitarist, producer, mixing and mastering engineer based in Rome, Italy.

I play guitar since my teenage and formed my first band when I was 18. My musical roots are deeply rock in almost all its shades, I grew up listening Guns n' Roses, Pearl Jam, Aerosmith, Pink Floyd, Queen and played a lot of rock/hard rock.
I own a Fender Strat, Fender Telecaster American Standard, Ibanez JEM 555 Steva Vai, Yahama 12 strings acoustic and 6 strings acoustic.Electric guitars are powered by a SOLDANO SP-77 all tubes preamp and a vintage FARFISA all tubes valves (dated 1965) to create a very great sound.
I owned a studio recording for years, and I had the chance to record, mix and produce several awesome bands travelling from pop to Metal progressive.
I work with a Mac Pro and Logic Pro x.

    It was a pleasure to work with Valerio! Very cool song, reminding me of Another Day of the Dream Theater!
    I had the opportunity to play the saxophone on this track and I did it as soon as possible, since this track really moved me. Can't wait to play again with Valerio!

    Valerio continues to impress with great tunes and great communication. Whenever I needed something, I was able to message him and received great feedback very quickly. He takes his music seriously but also is super friendly and encouraging throughout the recording process. I look forward to more projects with Valerio!

    Valerio and I have worked on 2 songs now and each tune has great variety both in feel and tempo! His songs are so fun to play and are mapped out with great organization. I enjoy tracking drums every single time and never feel under the gun. Valerio is so enthusiastic as well. He gives me the confidence that I need to give him the best track I can! Bravo! Can't wait for the next one!
