Electric and Acoustic Guitar Recordings! Vocal Editing and Mixing!

My name is Daniele and I'm a musician, music teacher and producer based in Milan (Italy).

You can hire me to record some guitars for your song or to mix your recordings to take them to the next level. I can also do pitch correction to your vocals or any other type of audio editing.

I graduated from CPM Music Institute with a diploma in contemporary guitar.
I currently teach music both privately and for Ricordi Music School.

As a musician I'm the guitarist, main songwriter and lyricist for pop/rock band Allis On Air.
Since 2014 we've recorded a full length album and a handful of Eps and singles.
Among the many concerts we've played we were one of the upcoming acts at iDays2017 (headlined by Linkin Park, Sum41, Blink182 and Nothing But Thieves).
Proficient in both electric and acoustic guitar, I have a lot of experience both live and in the recording studio (you can find my work with Allis On Air on Spotify).

Around June 2019 I started getting heavily into production and mixing. I took a course with Italian renown session player Massimo Varini that I passed with the highest score and took parts in lessons and workshops with mixers like Marco Borsatti and Matteo Cantaluppi.
During the last year and a half I've worked with a number of local artists including producing a full length album for Turin based singer-songwriter Jonnie.

    I have known Daniele for many years, and I got to know his professionalism, his knowledge, his skills and his tastes and I can say that they are really excellent. He has recently worked on the mix and master (and mostly pre-production) of the first single of the band I am part of, needless to say that the final product was impeccable ... always available and very punctual on everything. Strongly recommended!

    I have worked with Daniele a few times before for both mixing services and recorded guitar parts. He is excellent at both, and super easy to work with. I have also recommended him to others. Really great to work with and very creative.

    Daniele is professional and highly efficient in his job. He composed and recorded the sound track for my book promo trailer and I was extremely satisfied with the end result. Daniele has also recorded and edited several professional voice overs for many of my projects. He anticipates the client’s needs right from the start which makes collaborating with him easy and he also delivers projects on time. I highly recommend his services.

Interview with Daniele Tiddia

  1. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  2. A: Whatever is needed at the moment. When the budget allows it I love to work in a nice studio and certain pieces of analog gear are magical, but I don't think anybody these days is removing ringing frequencies from a track with an analog eq.

  3. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  4. A: I always give 100%.

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

  6. A: Although certain aspects of music making are ripetitive, there's always something unique about a song or a songwriter. Every piece of music I get to work on feels new and inspiring.

  7. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  8. A: A Martin acoustic guitar, a Fender Stratocaster, a decent condenser mic, a Macbook Pro and an Apollo interface.

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

  10. A: Pop, pop-rock, rock, alternative, occasionally EDM.

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

  12. A: Too many musicians to list. A couple of producers that come to mind are Greg Wells and Jacquire King.

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

  14. A: Production and beat-making are not the same thing. Some people do both and the two can overlap, but producing a track doesn't always mean making a beat for it.

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

  16. A: Write the melody before the lyrics.

  17. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  18. A: I first picked up the guitar around age 13. After being self taught for a few years I Moved to St. Louis (MO) at age 17 where I first got in contact with jazz studies and music theory. There I studied with jazz and hip hop trombonist Lamar Harris. After coming back to Sardinia I started taking guitar lessons and then I enrolled into a music academy called NAMM where I studied with guitarist Francesco Congia. After that I moved to Milan to study at CPM Music Institute where I graduated with a diploma in contemporary guitar in 2013. While in music college I founded pop/rock band Allis On Air with some other students. Since 2014 we've recorded a full length album and a handful of Eps and singles. Among the many concerts we've played we were one of the upcoming acts at IDays2017 (headlined by Linkin Park, Sum41, Blink182 and Nothing But Thieves). We also did a few acoustic gigs in Ireland and once played a show with Welsh band Himalayas. I'm proficient in both electric and acoustic guitar, I have a lot of experience both live and in the recording studio (you can find my work with Allis On Air on Spotify). While working on my band's music I was also developing an interest in arrangement, production and recording. I handled most of the songwriting, all the lyrics and also recorded and mixed our pre-production before going to the studio. From there I started taking it more seriously and the last couple of year or so I've been producing and mixing for some local artists. The jobs may vary from mixing finished tracks to singer-songwriters who can't play an instrument but have melodies and lyrics down so they come to me to develop their songs with them.

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

  20. A: My work varies between recording guitar tracks, producing, mixing and mastering. If I'm hired as producer I might have to do both the playing and the mixing depending on the budget. But I also get hired just for session work as the guitarist or just to mix and master a track.

  21. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  22. A: SESSION GUITAR WORK: My acoustic guitar is a Martin Gpcpa4 that I record with an Avantone CV-12 tube microphone through a Universal Audio Apollo interface with various preamps. My electrics are a Fender Tele, a Fender Strat and an Epiphone Les Paul. I have a boutique custom made Tube Amp and I like recording my electric guitars either miking the amp with an SM57 or putting a Palmer PDI-03 between the amp and the audio interface. When amp modeling softwares are needed I mainly use a Marshall Plexi by Universal Audio, PRS Supermodels by Waves and Rocktrack by Brainworx. Pedals are too many to list but I have decent sized pedalboard. The ones I use the most are the Rockbox Boiling Point Overdrive, Xotic AC Booster, TC Hall Of Fame reverb and the Korg SDD3000 delay. For songwriting and producing purpuses I also have a Sire V7 5 strings bass, Yamaha P45 and Novation Impulse keyboards and a fully triggered drum kit (gifted to me by the amazing Greg Wells). MIXING: Apollo Twin interface, KRK Studio Monitors, Adam A7X monitors and Ollo Audio S4X Reference Headphones, Plugins by Universal Audio, Soundtoys, Plugin Alliance, Waves, Fabfilter and more.
