I'm a SAE Milan Certified Audio Engineer with a solid work ethic and almost 10 years of experience
I'm not gonna trick you by describing myself as the most succesful grammy winner top of the line pro, asking for a ridiculous price just to have "a name" in your credits (who read them anyway?).
If you decide to work with me, you get what you want.

    In my music career I've met a lot of music producers and sound engineers but I've never found a professionist who works better than Luca. For this reason I will record my new official album to his studio and I'm sure that a lot of other people will make the same thing cuz he's a warranty!

    Abbiamo affidato a Luca la produzione del nostro disco, associato alla produzione dell'80 % dei beats utilizzati. Il risultato è stato eccezionale: il disco suona perfettamente. L'enorme professionalità con la quale ci siamo confrontati ci ha anche consentito una crescita dal punto di vista artistico.

    My very first experience with Luca aka twenty was back on March 2010 when I was just 15. We rolled along throughout the last 6 years mixing experimenting different genres and vibes, finding the best sound thanks to his capability of get in touch my creativity and emphasize the best of my abilities. He's a brother in life and a professional at work.

    I've worked several times with Luca.
    Beside his undoubted technical qualities relating to vocal tuning, mixing and mastering, he has really musical ears, which allow him to obtain awesome results, thanks to his infinite patience too.

    The way Luca can bring my ideas into the music is perfect. He understands the artist's needs and personal taste. His experience makes him one of the best engineers around. If you work with him you'll get a perfect production from the start.

    I worked a lot of time in twenty's studio and i can say that he is so pro and halpful to realise every our request.His mixes and masters are perfect but I think that The way how he works on The voice (editing,tunning,effects ecc) is amazing.The one thing that makes him special is that he works everytime to our songs as it were his personal progect.

Interview with Luca Saliu

Tell us about your studio setup.
I'm probably the old school audio engineer's worst nightmare. I'm definitely digitally oriented, since there are some many great things you can do today with DAW's and Plug-Ins. I prefer to focus my hardware resources on good monitors and audio interface, a linear acustic environment and top of the line digital plugins.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
Everything that I listen to inspires me, in a good or a bad way. I'm not the kind of guy who gets too attached to someone and put him on a pedestal.
What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
"Digital" doesn't mean "Amateur". Let your ears be the judge.
What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
Know what you want, but at the same time be open minded to what an experienced technician could bring to your project.
Which artist would you like to work with and why?
Everyone who could make me grow, in terms of knowledge.
Can you share one music production tip?
It doesn't matter WHAT you use, but HOW you use it.
What type of music do you usually work on?
Usually I work with rappers, singers (sometimes they're both) and producers. Hip Hop, Edm, Pop, ecc.
What's your strongest skill?
I strive all the time to make my last work my best work.
What do you bring to a song?
I want the song to stand out, sometimes it means to get it huge and loud, sometimes it has to be warm and comfortable.
What's your typical work process?
It really depends on the project. I tend to start clean and ordered and to keep it smart and simple throughout the whole chain, even if sometimes it gets complicated.
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
My carrer started as a Beatmaker for local artists in the early 2000's, since then I kept developing my skills artistically and technically. I'm an all-around audio engineer, most of the times I compose and arrange the instrumental, record the vocals, edit mix and master the song.
