    Mastered two tunes for me. One was a techno tune and the other a Tech House tune. Both came out fantastic and with a little adjustment to the bass (caused be my original mix) we had the perfect masters.

    Thanks again Alex and look forward to working with you again!

    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.

    We have been using Alex Picciafuochi's mastering service for over a decade, never having had any problems. Respect deadlines, even when extremely close. He has great both musical and technical skills. He works excellently on all musical genres thanks to his extraordinary ear, in fact he was recognized as Golden Ear in 2003 by one of the most renowned mastering monitor companies. Strongly recommended.

Interview with Alex Picciafuochi Mastering

  1. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  2. A: Some musical genres need analog or analog-simulated treatments, others digital, because they are born from the peculiarities of numerical technologies.

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

  4. A: I will always give my best but I can not do the impossible.

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

  6. A: I like challenges, make something sound like the required reference.

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

  8. 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.

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

  10. A: We fix it the mix :)

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

  12. 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?

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

  14. 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.

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

  16. 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.

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

  18. 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.

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

  20. 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

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

  22. 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.

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

  26. A: Our ears become accustomed to the faulty sounds, do not forget to reset them frequently.

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

  28. A: Mainly electronic music genres.
