How does it work the mixing process?

Step 1
: Send me the audio multitrack of your project (audio stems).

Step 2
: Give me a reference track.

Step 3
: I’ll send you a rough mix, once we agree on a mix style, I can proceed working.

Step 4
:I proceed to fine tune the mix and send you the definitive version (3 revisions).

Step 5
: It’s master time: I will make your music suitable for the platforms and physical supports you need such as Spotify, YouTube, CD, Deezer, TikTok, or whatever you need.

Let's talk about Music production

Step 1: 
First of all we need to know which the starting point is: do you have a lyric, a melody, a harmonic progression or a beat? Whatever it is, you can send it to us and tell us what’s your purpose.

Step 2
: We'll tell you what we can do for you starting from your idea. We like to be honest, of course we work better on projects we love and that fit our musical skills and attitude.

Step 3
: We send you a first draft to make sure we’re heading in the right direction. 


Step 4
: It’s sound design time: we start thinking about how to dress the song, we choose the instruments, rhythmic session and we start to give the song its own shape.

Step 5: According to your instructions we create the pre-production which is a rough version of your song that contains all the key elements: the melody, the lyric, the rhythm...

    Working with Andrea as the sound designer of our shortfilm was a great pleasure. He is very professional and bright-minded, although our film took a lot of time to be finalized he was so patient throughout the whole process and delivered the work always on time.

    Andrea was awesome. He's very knowledgeable about not only engineering, but also music and composition as well and provided notes and suggestions that lead to the song sounding better. He's a really great guy and was a pleasure to work with. He didn't waste any time, and moved through the project very fluidly. Hope to work with him again soon.

  44. A: I’m a sound engineer skilled in mix and master, basically I deal with my clients to reach out of the tracks they have in their hands the sound they have in their minds.
