Really recommending him.
I collaborated with Giovanni on a few projects so far, great guy to work with and easy to communicate with. More so, he’s a great mixing and mastering engineer, I was really happy with the results.
Giovanni was recommended to me during the lockdown period and I thought, yeah, why not giving a try. And I have to say, I did not regret it, very structured work, clear and quick communication, not too proud to react to suggestions or sound adjustments. Every review happened quickly and as expected. At the end we had a master everybody was satisfied with!
Interview with Giovanni Cordova
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: A lot of mixing and mastering projects. I'm so happy because they are all different and unique styles, from amazing and talented people from all around the World.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Yes, my friends Peter Cloud, Christel Clear, Ray Le Fanue...
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Thinking that mixing/mastering can fix a bad production/recording.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Do you have a reference track ? or What is the sound you're looking for ?
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Laptop, guitar, huuuuge speakers, audio interface.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Constantly evolving, but balance and high quality clean sound are what I am.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Listening. I do my best. I listen to the client's idea, to what he's trying to achieve and I visualise the process.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Every project needs its own special treatment. Some songs need to be restyled and the client leaves space to my instinct and experience. For other songs I just have to make them sound posh and "finished".
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: First of all communication. It's vital to understand artist/producer's vision and to prioritise that. It is surely one of the most important ingredients for a great sounding mix/master, together with instinct. Everything else just falls into place.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Lately I'm doing mostly mixing, mastering and stem-mastering.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: French by Peter Cloud. I've produced, mixed and mastered the song and I've also recorded the lead guitar.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I always give my best in every project.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Justin Bieber. I really like his voice tone and the productions are always the best.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: They usually ask me if a certain sound is achievable with their material. My answer is that for sure I'll try my best as always to improve their sound and sometimes the result is even better. A lot depends on the recording and the production quality when we talk about the outcome quality level.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Lately I'm focusing a lot to work in the box. I've worked in big studios but I find myself faster and I can finish more work with my laptop and a good pair of speakers / headphones.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: In 2021 digital has reached incredible quality and it's also faster in terms of workflow. Currently I'm in digital team.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been doing this all my life. When I was 5 - 6 I had to watch my big brother's band lessons and I learnt how to recognise the role of every instrument back then already. Then I played a few instruments until I was 14-15 when I started producing. Mixing and Mastering came after that when I went to SAE in Amsterdam.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Mainly Electronic music, Pop, hip-hop. But I've worked on Rock, Jazz, Classical Music, Folk, Metal, Dubstep.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: The creative and multicultural environment, happiness and satisfaction after the client reaches high results with the record. When songs are played on the radio and loud in clubs/festivals.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Select 3 of the providers that mostly attract you and are in your budget, get in touch with them and try to understand which one can really understand your vision and help you visualise the end result before starting to work at the project.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Invest in your monitoring. This can be your room or a good pair of headphones.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I am really inspired by Mark Ronson, Diplo and Luca Pretolesi.
