Electric and Acoustic Guitar Recordings! Mixing and Mastering for your home recordings! Vocal Editing!
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 home recordings to take them to the next level. I can also do vocal or any other audio editing.
I graduated from CPM Music Institute with a diploma in contemporary guitar
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 and I'm currently producing a full length album for Turin based singer-songwriter Jonnie.

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
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
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.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
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.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Write the melody before the lyrics
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
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. MIXING: Apollo Twin interface, KRK Studio Monitors and Ollo Audio S4X Reference Headphones, Plugins by Universal Audio, Soundtoys, Plugin Alliance, Waves, Fabfilter and more.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
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.
