Rodrigo Francalacci on SoundBetter

For the last 12 years I've been working with many different artists. This experience taught me the essential components which make up a great mix. I strive to apply what I've learned to your track, to make it sound top-notch!

I'm a Bachelor of Physics and Master of Architectural Acoustics from the State University of Campinas (UNICAMP). I have been designing recording studios in the field of acoustics for over 6 years. In addition to being an acoustic designer I also work with audio electronics, that is I develop and build recording and mastering equipment for studio environments, as well as tube amplifiers for live and studio settings. I am also a songwriter, guitarist and vocalist with three albums released with the band The Belle from the city of Porto Ferreira in Brazil. Inside the studio, I have 12 years experience with recording, mixing and mastering.

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.
