A: I loved to work with Melting Clock on the album Destinazioni. They let themselves be guided through the production process and we got a stunning sounding album, check it out.

Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I spend some time to understand the customer's goal and what the song needs to sound professionally. When mixing, I usually provide mixed, mastered and backing tracks. Fine tuning and editing is included if necessary. The song is delivered "radio ready" and revisions are welcome.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I work in a LEDE control room, my listenings are Tannoy SRM15X, Dynaudio LYD-8, Event 20/20/15 and more. Too many microphones; Neve and API preamps; RME converters. I mix and master ITB. I endorse Gibson and Mesa Boogie as guitarist.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I love good music whatever the genre, I love modern big productions. I grew up playing classical and listening to rock and progressive rock music. However I love pop and electronic music too.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Mixing and mastering engineer is my first job. I can also arrange and produce a song starting from your idea. I play guitars so I can add professional guitars to your song. When specific session musicians are needed, I can provide them too. So, often, I'm in charge of following the song from the arrangement to the mastering.
