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

  2. A: I am honoured 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.

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

  4. 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. I'm checking all the new Caneschi's releases. Some Singer Albums and some Jazz album stem mastering

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

  6. 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. I work in my studio from Saturday to Tuesday, so if you send me the tracks on Saturday or Sunday you will have them probably by Tuesday. In some urgent cases I can also do them for the next day. I can make discounts for more than 4 tracks or for continuous work or if you become a repeat customer. I also grant a discount in case of subscription with advance payment. If you can export 32bit tracks I don't care about the headroom, this is because, thanks to that format. the dynamic range is almost unlimited. I am concerned that they are not already over-compressed, I need an RMS at least of -8dB, better if -10dB. On the Master Channel you can leave the EQs and Compressors that characterise, in the way you like, the track. You will have back Wav file at 16bit suitable for the digital distribution but, if you request it, also a 24 bit and / or MP3. Certainly if there are aspects of my mastering that do not satisfy you, you will report what you don't like and we will find a way to solve together. Furthermore if you have reference tracks to which your tracks must look like, please give them to me.

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

  8. A: Inspiration is floating in the air, it's just a matter of listen to it, shape it creating the best sound.

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

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

  11. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  12. A: The core of my studio is the Prism Sound Orpheus mastering grade audio card. I use both Apple Mac OSX and PC Windows platforms with the best and most popular DAW and Audio Editors like: Pro Tools, Ableton, Logic Pro, Studio One Pro, WaveLab, Cubase, Samplitude, Reason, FL Studio, etc. powered by a incredible huge collection of the best and/or common plugins as: Accusonus, Acon Digital, Acustica-Audio, Antares, Blue Cat Audio, Brainworx, Elysia, Cableguys, D16 Group, DADA Life, DMGAudio, Eventide, Fab-Filter, Flux, HOFA, iZotope, Kazrog, Lexicon, LiquidSonics, MAAT, Melda Production, Native Instruments, Nu-Gen Audio, Plugin-Alliance, Slate Digital, Softube, Sonalksis, Sonarworks, Sonnox, SoundToys, TC Electronic, U-He, UAD, UVI, Vengeance, Voxengo, Waves, XLN, XFER Records and many 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: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  22. 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.

  28. A: We fix it the mix :)

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

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

  38. 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.

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

  44. A: Conor Dalton, from Glowcast Audio Mastering, mastered 2 of my mixes in a really good way!
