Interview with Alex Picciafuochi Mastering
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Some musical genres need analog or analog-simulated treatments, others digital, because they are born from the peculiarities of numerical technologies.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I will always give my best but I can not do the impossible.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I like challenges, make something sound like the required reference.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Q: In which format do you need the song and how will it be completed? A: I need the files in WAV, AIF or BWF at the same sampling frequency used in your working session, for example 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96 kHz etc., and with a resolution of at least 24 bit thanks.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: We fix it the mix :)
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Do you need a tuning of the sound of your track or do you need a more creative intervention that improves the sounds for the chosen musical genre?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Leave some empty space both at the beginning (to preserve the initial transients) and at the end (to let the long reverb tail decays naturally) of your track.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: 1) Solar cell panel. 2) Satellite internet connection. 3) MacBook Pro with my audio softwares. 4) Good USB digital studio monitors. 5) USB Master keyboard.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started playing keyboards at the age of 5, at 12 I became an audiophile, at 19 I bought my first synthesizer, I studied a lot and experimented even more.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: First of all, it should not leave you indifferent, it must leave you speechless, and give you what the musical genre wants to communicate
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: As an Engineer: Mixing, Mastering, Stem Mastering, General Optimising, Sound Designing. As a Producer: adding productions if needed, composing, songwriting, arranging and producing many genres of music, from House, Electro, EDM, Future House, Progressive House, Techno, Tech House to Lounge, Chill-Out, Games Music and so on.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I am honored to have been chosen by artists such as Luca Agnelli (Drumcode) and Claudio Coccoluto and to have been able to remaster the album Dreamland and a collection of the best hits by the late Robert Miles.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Our ears become accustomed to the faulty sounds, do not forget to reset them frequently.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Mainly electronic music genres.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Being both a musician and a composer, a producer, an audiophile and an audio engineer, It makes everything clearer to me
