Giovanni J Carrozzo on SoundBetter

Never too loud

I am currently an audio engineer and sound designer with an ongoing working relationship with “Mob Studios” in Rome.
I have participated in projects and international Italian artists like Maneskin, Negrita, Alex Britti, I Ministri, Arisa, Emma Marrone and the Grammy winner engineer Tommaso Colliva.

In my working experiences, I developed a full knowledge of understanding signal flow, miking, mixing techniques, sound design, industry audio standards, and regulations. As well as strong configuration and supporting experience with audio systems. I am familiar with the latest digital consoles and follow emerging audio technologies. Collaborating with artists I am enjoy been part of the team and achieve the artists goals.

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

    I'm Japanese. I was worried about trust.
    But I'm satisfied with the result of his Mixing & Mastering.
    He made my song so sophisticated & so cool.
    I felt he was polite and punctual.

Interview with Giovanni J Carrozzo

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

  2. A: It's very hard to tell... I find inspiration in a lot of different aspects of creative people. I'm inspired by someone that has wide musical abilities and can blend into different genres as a producer. I'm also inspired by those that have a defined aesthetic and specialize in a specific sound.

  3. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  4. A: The smile of the artist when he hears that the mix is close to the end.

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

  6. A: In the mixing stage we cannot perform miracles. It's essential to have a good performance and a good recording.

  7. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  8. A: Pretty hard question: I change my mind every week. Today I'll say Bruno Mars. I love the groove and the power behind that kind of high-end level funky productions.

  9. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  10. A: If you have good analog gear... saturate it! if you don't have it.... emulate it! Analog distortion is the key.

  11. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  12. A: Both. I take the best from both worlds: digital it's fast, easy. On the other hand analog outboards can give some extra magic. I don't know if it is only in my head, but sometimes I can really feel it.

  13. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  14. A: I like to gain experience in different genres. That's open my mind when I use different mix technique in different genres.

  15. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  16. A: Attention to detail. The sum of all details makes the real difference.

  17. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  18. A: Clarity and coherence.

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

  20. A: First of all, I like to talk with artists. I'm always curious about their vision. Just a couple of keywords that come out from the talk can change my decision during the mix. I suggest to share with me some references tracks. That's help me a lot. When I'm in front of my SSL I just open all the tracks and I start to mix just with faders getting a pretty decent rough mix. I call that "STATIC MIX". When everything sounds good I start to create space for sounds and adding some magic...

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

  22. A: I'm a mix engineer. Every time a new mix comes in my hand I'll try to do my best but in an invisible way. I don't want to overprocess sounds, I really like to add just a little shine to sounds and putting things in the right place getting clarity and coherence. Details are so important.
