Hi, I'm Marco Vialardi from Biella. I am a mixing engineer, I graduated in January 2020 at SAE Insitute Milan and I have been working since September 2018 at the Fonjka Factory recording studio in Biella. The main artists I have had the pleasure of working with are some of the major Italian artists out there such as Fedez, J-Ax, Irama.
Mixing and Mastering are the fundamental processes for making a track distributable as a record product.
My job consists in making your songs perfect and making them play according to the client's tastes.
I make myself fully available to the customer without ever imposing anything if they are not choices chosen by him.
I studied at SAE Institute MIlano and graduated in January 2020, also since September 2018 I work at the recording studio Fonjka Factory.

Ho contattato Marco per la lavorazione di alcuni brani.
Oltre a essersi dimostrato disponibile e competente, ha portato ottime idee per dare rotondità e completare la mia idea iniziale. Dimostra varietà di ascolti e duttilità in base alle intenzioni e al tipo di progetto.
Affidarmi a lui è stata la scelta giusta!
Marco is a really professional guy. He understand every specific need you have, finding the right direction and colour for your song. He is a musician too, so you can speak in musical terms without misunderstanding. 100% recommended.
Ho assegnato a Marco mixaggio e masterizzazione di alcuni brani che saranno inseriti nel mio prossimo disco solista e sono rimasto piacevolmente colpito.
Il suo lavoro è stato eccellente donando ai brani una profondità di suono invidiabile valorizzandoli, senza snaturare il lavoro eseguito in pre-produzione .
Un tecnico giovane, molto competente e disponibilissimo a capire e soddisfare le esigenze del cliente.
Interview with Marco "Idralaiv" Vialardi
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Michael Gario is a colleague of mine at Fonjka Factory, he has already edited the mix of the song Big Moon of my band The Bowman. he is able to give an extra touch to the song he works on, he has great musical skills and knowledge that he effectively inserts into his work.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I think that now digital has taken the place of analog in most modern music productions for the simplicity of use and for the sound similarity that they have now reached compared to their analog counterparts. However the sound that is created with analog equipment in my opinion is incomparable, they allow you to get what is the true sound of the instrument you are processing.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise my customers to always be as professional as possible, to meet their needs and to never impose anything that is not to their liking.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: My favorite thing about my job is being able to stay in touch with musicians and their music 24 hours a day, which is fabulous.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: The fact of not understanding how much work there is after the recording of a song and before its publication, a good part of the sound comes from the mix and many people do not know this.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: As well as the samples that are found in the various online libraries can be made well, I believe that the sound obtained from real and recorded instruments is unbeatable.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I don't prefer a particular genre, in the studio where I work we mainly deal with pop music, while my personal works bring me more towards rock and subgenres of it.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: At the moment I am working at the Fonjka Factory recording studio, but I own my own home studio that I am building gradually with the works I do, I have all the necessary material to be able to record and mix in peace.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I mainly deal with mix and mastering, which consist in making the song suitable for publication, each element inside it must be placed in the correct position so as not to mask the other instruments.
