Interview with Francesco Petrelli

  13. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  14. A: Drum sound, I love drums expecially snare drum. Snare is my lighthouse in a mix. It has to be always there but it doesn't dominate in the mix.

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

  16. A: My typical work process is listening to the song or references uninterrupted and feeling the vibe. I then make some internal notes on what I can do and how I feel I can bring the track to the next level. I want to add my vibe and skill to the track while keeping the original artists vision. It's a collaborative effort! Teamwork makes the Dreamwork!

  17. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  18. A: I work in the box. I have also some outboard equipment like SSL G Bus Compressor and Wa76 that I usually use, but I love working in the box.

  19. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  20. A: I love rock and metal music. Chris-Lord-Alge is my hero, all his production are a reference for me.

  21. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  22. A: Mixing, Mastering, and Production work. I have had many clients want only a mix and master at first, but then I also end up assisting them with additional production on their track to take it to the next level.
