Hi quality Radio/Spotify/Apple Music ready mastering - Apple Digital Master Certified. I've worked with artists, musicians, bands, producers, and record labels from all over the world. My goal is to bring the music you have worked really hard on to its maximum potential, giving it the final polishing, and increasing the chance of your success.
I'm here to help you to get your music to the final level.
I have more than ten years of experience working as a mixing and mastering engineer.
Nowadays, I work mainly as a mastering engineer from my studio in London. I had the pleasure to work with and meet (sometimes only virtually) lots of good artists from all over the world.
I love music at 360 degrees, as well as, I love mastering music and help artists to get a final world-class sound.
My first goal is always to understand the artist's vision first (the most important thing) and then start to work with him/her to achieve the sound they have in mind. I have a very personal approach to the music I work on, giving to it always 100% of myself.
My workflow includes digital and analogue tools that allow me to be always on track.
If this sounds appealing to you, please feel free to drop me a line.
I would love to hear from you about yourself, your project and your music.

2 ReviewsEndorse Manuel Scaramuzzino
Interview with Manuel Scaramuzzino
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Is that Mastering it's only about loudness. Especially nowadays with most of the media normalising the music on LUFS based system Mastering is more and more about quality. Quality that first come from a good pair of trained hears and then from the equipment (digital and analogue).
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Well first of all I need to listen to their music as it speaks for itself. Then I ask few question to better understand the client's needs: if they're happy with the mix (and if the mix it's been 100% approved); if they have any loudness reference; what's the distribution media (Digital Distribution/Streaming, CD, Vinyl); if there are deadline (My turnaround is usually 5 working days often sooner, but I'm happy to match the client's deadline if they are in rush).
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Listen to his/her previous works but most important have a chat with him/her, be honest and realistic.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Take strong decisions at every stage of the production process. Everything has to be done right and right now. If something doesn't sound good don't think "I'll fix it later" work on it now.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I work across a lot of music genre: Pop, Singer-Songwriter, Hip Hop, Neo-Soul, Reggae, Dub, Jazz, Blues, Funk, EDM and Techno.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Passion for the music, trained hears and understanding of the client needs.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring in my evaluation skills maturated through +10 of experience Mixing, Mastering and collecting music. Moreover I bring my absolute commitment to sound excellence.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: - Get the files from the client - Mix evaluation (If needed and if my client is open to it, I'm happy to give my feedback to improve the mix) - I get to work to Master the song/s - Usually the Mastering process involves 3 steps: 1- Digital 2- Analogue 3- My personal review and re-digitalization of the work -I send the song/s mastered to the client - Client reviews: I ask the client if any sonic adjustment is needed. If some tweak is needed I'm happy to do it in order to suit the client taste.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: After +10 years working in the music industry as Mastering and Mixing Engineer my work consist primary to give feedback to my clients (musicians, engineers and producers) to get the most out of their mixes. Then I proceed with the Mastering. Clients hire me roughly 50% for Stereo Mastering (especially experienced Mixing Engineers and Producers) and 50% for Stem Mastering when they want to give me full control of their production and hear a radical improvement. Anyway the reasons for choosing one service rather than the other are not always the same and change on the client needs.
