Hi, I'm Armin and I live in Genoa, in Italy. I have been mixing and tracks for my local rock/heavy rock bands for a couple of years. I can actually work for free at the moment, and the reason is that I have just started to work "professionally". Music is my passion, and human communication is the key to work successfully.

Interview with A&M - Production
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Usually I get multitrack recorded sessions to edit and mix, most of the times my clients ask me to provide them their songs already mastered.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Dave Pensado, Warren Huart, Ian Sheperd are just few names of professional mixing/mastering engineers who really inspire me. I should name and thank Graham Cochrane too, for introducing me to the audio and mixing world with his cool videos on YouTube. He's an awesome guy and his really powerful way of teaching how to get the most out of - almost - nothing really hooked me up.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Really basic and simple. Everything is made "in the box" and with a cool monitoring sistem.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I usually listen to the songs given at least three times, so that I can identify the heart of every song. And THIS is going to be my main focus from the beginning of the editing phase to mastering.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: It's preatty hard to tell, really. I should probably say "humble". I try to learn from everyone and from every mistake i make, focusing on just getting better on what I do, trying to understand my clients and to grow with them.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I usually work on rock music, but I love to work on songwriters' songs, heavy rock and - why not? - also metal.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: KEEP YOUR LEVELS DOWN. It might seem stupid but, in the age of the digital world, there's no need to keep your volumes too high. The result might be really unpleasant and annoying during the mixing phase, so keep your volumes down. I think that it could be one of the most important tips you could get when you're a "beginner".
