Creative Mixing & Mastering Engineer with AVID Pro Tools Expert Certificate, Producer and Drummer. Resident at Blue Moon Rec Studio where the undeground becomes solid. Remember, sound matters: giving the right sound to a song is a mission. Releases for Sony Music, Universal and Believe.
Working as a Producer and a Sound Engineer over the years, I sensed that mixes are not only an engineering matter, but also something really creative. Every song becomes part of myself and I need to bring out the best of the artist thoughts. At the same time, I'm an Engineer with a Master degree in Sound Engineering (Tor Vergata University in Rome, Italy) and a certified Avid Pro Tools Expert (310M), so I studied and worked a lot on how to mix instruments together in order to find the perfect balance leading to a dynamic and punchy mix.
I call myself lucky to work at Blue Moon Rec Studio in Florence (Italy) where I have a professional recording room, a professional mixing room and a professional mastering room. The studio is "plug and play" and always ready to start a mix or a production. As for the production and jingles, I work with Samuele Cangi, a great producer and instrumentalist with over 10 years of experience.
Together we arrange and record "real" or virtual instruments to create a very well-finished production according to the requested style: productions have to sound pro, not like midi bases for karaoke!
Concerning my mixes and mastering, I love using a hybrid technique between analog and digital: the sound with my Amek Big44 (designed by Rupert Neve) is something incredible.

Tommaso is a real pro. Not only a great mixing engineer but a fantastic producer as well.
I first got in touch with Tommaso for an unpretentious single; it turned out so good that I have ended up asking him to produce the entire album!
He is an endless pitful of ideas and he is so easy to communicate with: sometimes he understands what you want before you can word it out. The methodical relyability of his workflow handled with ease and speed (seriuosly: he's fast) every request I came up with, and the final result was rich and elegant.
This man is GOLD.
Tommaso is synonymous with quality. Everything he does is extremely accurate and well designed. He produced all of my songs, and I’m not going to change because I was always satisfied.
He is also an excellent listener, a master of Pro Tools, and an incredible drummer.
Last, but not least, he is an open source of knowledge: I have learned a lot of things from him.
Tommaso embodies the perfect mixing engineer and quality producer: it is so easy to work with him, since he always captures what I’m looking for in each song!
Sound’s quality and details are the key words of his way of thinking!
Tom engineered, co-produced and mixed all of my latest songs.
And let's get to the point, he knows best.
He is really aware of the whole process of producing a pro record and he's just unsparing when it comes to explain every little bit of his magic.
He's a great listener, a monster synth designer and a great Pro Tools connoisseur.
I mean, he could even reverse the sound of you thinking that your snare is just not right. 'Cause is not right, you know. But hey, no worries. Tom can fix it.
And let's not forget he's the best drummer I ever met, being a drummer myself.
