Music and sound design studio with unique acoustics and over 30 years of experience in music and sound engineering in the greater São Paulo area. Only recording studio known in Brazil with the Andean 10-string ronroco instrument. Mix and mastering for indie, rock and alternative. Sound design for the cult Doom-style game "Incidente em Varginha".
The Estúdio FC is located in Barueri, thriving city in the outskirts of São Paulo, biggest city in Brazil and in the southern Hemisphere. Founded as a home studio back in São Paulo in 1987, by Fábio Cardelli (father), the studio was specialized in sound design and jingles for publicity and short films. FC had several major clients in Brazil, such as Seven Boys and Folha de São Paulo.
In 2005, the studio was moved to its own building, in the region of Alphaville, one of the wealthiest regions in the whole country, where it's located up to this day. Due to its amazing acoustics in its 40m2 room, the studio switched to music recording and producing.
Combining the incredible acoustics with Avid Pro Tools HD, at Estúdio FC we have recorded artists from all over Brazil in the last years, specializing in indie/rock/brazilian music production and mixing, and hip hop/trap vocal recording and mixing. In the house, we have guitar, bass, drums, charango and ronroco players available for remote projects, as well as remote producing and mixing.

7 ReviewsEndorse Estudio FC
I'm a music producer and I worked with Fabio at Estudio FC several times recording albums and singles. Fabio is extremely professional and dedicated, besides the studio having an excellent structure, both for recording and post production. I highly recommend his work! A great mix of talent and professionalism.
Seminal has had a great relationship with Fabio over the years, both on organizing events, recording and mixing. We played live at the studio, one of which went on to become a live album ("Enquanto o homem não vem: ao vivo na Alameda Capricórnio"). We can only recommend the great structure, accoustics, space and gear of FC Estudios and the attention and quality you will get to make the best out of your music.
I've worked with Fabio for many times in his studio. He is an excellent professional and a such great person and his knowledge helped me during my sessions (he mixed and mastered my songs as well). It is certainly one of the best studios in São Paulo, great structure and quality equipment. I recommend!
Fabio was a crucial addition to ethe short animated film,"Sew me a River". Our project is a non-dialogue short animated film, so having sound FX that were appropriate to the tone of the film was very important. In our conversations, Fabio was always very receptive to my feedback and feedback I gathered from trusted professionals. Even if something needed to be changed that was his idea, we worked it out and ultimately reached an end product that enhanced my composers music and Fabio's sound work. I will most certainly keep in touch with Fabio for any future projects I will pursue.
Fabio helped me creating the music for my short film "Sweet Temptation". It was an animation with no dialogues, so the music was very important with creating the mood of the film. Fabio was great during the whole film process and it was amazing to see how he understood the essence of the character bringing forward its personality with only music and sound design. I highly recommend his work with soundtracks and I will most definitely call him again for my next project!
Fabio has been extremely professional working with us on the sound design for our short animation film. He was always enthusiastic during not only the consultation phase of the sound design, but throughout the whole design/feedback process. He received and implemented feedback really well and always tried to match our desired style. He always came to our meetings with a positive attitude and was very responsive. Overall, a very great experience with this studio!
I started attending Estúdio FC in 2017, when I had my first band. The studio has a top-notch infrastructure, we have always had an efficient service and a concern on the part of Fabio Cardelli and employees with the quality of our music. A differential of the studio is the combination of professional work and friendship, always meeting deadlines to the letter, developing the proposed work with quality and willingness to resolve any issue that arises during the process. In 2021, I recorded 5 tracks of my EP with Fábio Cardelli at Estúdio FC. In the recording, Fábio used his technical knowledge
