    I asked Alberto to be free and creative when recording his bass track for my song, and I received exactly what I wanted..and more!! Mr Rigoni is utmost talented and can come up with his own ideas. He chose to use a fretless bass for this particular song and the effect is quite striking: it brings out the inner qualities of that song, with one single bass line. Hire this guy!

    I can tell that Alberto Rigoni knows exactly what he's doing, much more than me haha.
    When he sends a file, it's obviously played and arranged accordingly, it's the right choice of bass/amp and settings, engineered and pre-mixed to perfection.

    All I have to do is drag and drop his file in my DAW, zero adjustements needed. The tone and performance not only fit perfectly, it adds serious energy and value to my work.

    I can tell that he understand what the song is all about and what he has to do.

    Alberto Rigoni recorded on my metal solo album "Dragon Fire" (2010-Lion Music) and it's been an awesome first contact with him. Everything was perfectly tracked: playing, timing, groove, sound, all perfectly set at a pro level. Not easy songs to mention, something between prog and metal, full album recorded in a couple days, amazing! -Mistheria
