    Matteo was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was very communicative and helpful and most importantly, really LISTENS. This is so key when working in an online environment where you do not have the benefit of direct, face-to-face communication. He was committed to achieving the desired results and helped improve my vocal track very nicely.

Interview with Matteo Cerescioli

  1. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  2. A: How much creative input do you want me to put in the mix? What's the element of the track you like the most? Do you have any song you really like the sound of?

  3. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  4. A: I've been studying sound design and mixing/mastering for 7 years now. In 2014 I moved to California to attend a master program in production, sound design and mixing at Pyramind in San Francisco. The next year i got the certifications for Logic Pro X, Ableton, Pro Tools and Waves Audio. I worked as studio assistant at Pyramind and produced for big names such as Ian Golden, owner of DjTechTools and one of the remixes I made, won the first prize of Jon Sine’s “Dawning” contest. I'm Ableton Certified Trainer and teaching music has been an important step in my career path. Since May 2017 i’m part of tutoraudio.it, an educational platform for music production, mixing and mastering, where you can find tutorials for many genres and sound libraries.

  5. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  6. A: Always keep your eyes on the meters for the headroom. And trust your ears. Getting the gain staging right is such a great way to start a successful production.

  7. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  8. A: Deep House, EDM, Hip-Hop, Trap, Techno. Love working on tracks with vocals and dancefloor stuff but I frequently find myself mixing more relaxed music which I enjoy doing as well.

  9. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  10. A: Being able to mix with creativity and balance. I'm also reliable and open to meeting every client's need. Last but not least, i really love building a healthy relationship with the people i get to work with.

  11. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  12. A: Clarity, creativity, punch/energy. Other than approaching the mix in a classic way, doing balance eq compression and saturation, I can also add a personal touch depending on the client's needs. If requested, I will work on minor edits and fx to enhance the dynamics and to improve some sections of the track.

  13. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  14. A: I've had the chance to assist the gurus who created the sounds for the popular video games "Sunset Overdrive" and "Halo" David Earl (the SFlogicninja) and Matt Donner. This opportunity helped me to understand how much dedication the real professionals put into their productions and taught me countless techniques which i today use to make great sounding records.

  15. Q: What's your typical work process?

  16. A: The mixing work begins with importing the stems and organizing the project. I start grouping, labeling and color coding the different tracks. Then, i give the song a first listen, trying to understand the mood and i come up with some mix ideas. My next move is gain staging, which is the key for a well balanced mix. Then Eq, compression and so on. When i'm happy with the mix, i proceed to mastering the track if requested.

  17. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  18. A: I work in a nice cozy studio furnished with a pair of Adam A7X + Subwoofer, some Analog compressors like the Api 2500, dangerous mixer and many analog synthesizers, such as Virus Ti, Elektron machines, Volca series, Korg SH 101, Juno 106.

  19. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  20. A: Editing, Mixing and Mastering tracks. I'm also getting requests for ghost producing and beat making.

  21. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  22. A: Unfortunately not yet, but i'm looking forward to meet great musicians on SoundBetter!

  23. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  24. A: Nowadays plug-ins do wonders and they are extremely handy. On the other hand hardware is something which we'll never get tired of using, just because it brings that warm touch everyone loves. I would say a combination of both is my recipe for a big crisp sound.

  25. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  26. A: I'll do my best to impress yourself, taking your song to the next level

  27. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  28. A: First of all seeing my clients smile. Second the possibility to improve an existing track with my knowledge and my creativity.

  29. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  30. A: Will i be able to release my song on a big label? I'll do my best to have you 100% satisfied and help you getting there.

  31. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  32. A: Mastering doesn't do magic if the mix is not on point. Getting a balanced mix is the key to achieve a great sound.

  33. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  34. A: Focus on using few elements in the production and getting them sound good together, filling the frequency spectrum in a smart way. You don't want elements overlapping and sitting on the same frequency range. This is the right start for getting a powerful and good sounding production. Also don't over compress/limit the single tracks. I then will take care of the mixing to achieve a pro sound.

  35. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  36. A: Api 2500, Korg SH 101, Virus Ti, Apollo 16 and OP1 to have some fun!

  37. Q: How would you describe your style?

  38. A: I tend to use the latest techniques and tricks, so I would say: innovative.

  39. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  40. A: Luca Pretolesi is an awesome guy with such a wide knowledge and charisma. He's been a huge source of inspiration for myself in the years. I'm also a fan of Graham Cochrane and Young Guru.

  41. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  42. A: Luca Pretolesi, Young Guru, Diplo. They are incredible professionals who dedicated their life to music

  43. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  44. A: Mixing and producing tracks is what I do every day. I enjoy doing both of them and I always try to experiment new techniques to achieve the best sound possible.
