I just used Alex for mastering my latest EP. Right from the word go Alex made it a very easy process. Alex is incredibly friendly and easy to communicate with. His english is amazing. His work is of a high standard but he is very obliging when it comes to fine tuning. His turn around time was also very impressive. I will be using Alex again. Definately.
Alex was professional from start to finish, always replied quickly, and was always open to feedback and changes. He listened to what I wanted, and was able to deliver the result I was looking for
A great quality of work ! thanks Alex !

Interview with Alex Picciafuochi Mastering
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I optimize the mixing of Luca Agnelli for his releases on Drumcode, Suara, Etruria, etc.. I'm the sound manager of many record labels
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Mine is a powerful sound, with low clean and steady frequencies, high crystalline but not annoying frequencies, a dynamic, transparent and balanced result in the whole spectrum.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Peter Gabriel for the sound research, Daft Punk for the groove, Lady Gaga for the Voice.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I love excellent recordings, regardless of the musical genre. I've been playing keyboards since I was 5 years old, I grew up listening to all kinds of music, at 13 I was already passionate about Hi-Fi, I always listened to recordings in high definition for audiophiles. My references as Sound Engineers was Bob Katz, Alan Parsons, Trevor Horn. My references as Records was from Pink Floyd The Dark Side Of The Moon, Grace Jones Slave to the Rhythm, Alan Parsons Project, Steely Dan, Donald Fagen, Daft Punk, Peter Gabriel, Sheffield Lab Recordings, Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab Original Master Recordings, etc.
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.
