  1. Review by Mike C.

    Francesco has provided another great mix and master for my latest single. I am thrilled with his work and continue to be amazed at his choices and skills. Francesco absolutely nailed this mix/master and vocal tuning. Great job again, Francesco!

  2. Review by Mike C.

    Another amazing job!! Francesco again exceeded expectations. The choices on the vocals are outstanding. The mixing and mastering is top notch and professional. The fx for the lead guitar are better than anything I could have come up with.

    Francesco also accommodated my requests for a few unique versions so that I can play out and be able to perform lead vocals and guitar live. I will continue to use Francesco as he is a truly great artist of sound.

    Thanks, Francesco!!

  3. Review by Mike C.

    I highly recommend Francesco Scauzillo to be your sound engineer. Francesco is very quick to respond, provides high-quality mixing and mastering, and also provides unlimited revisions. The choices Francesco made for my project - particularly with the vocals - exceeded my expectations. I am 100% satisfied with his work and look forward to continuing the collaboration. THANK YOU, Francesco!!

    Francesco is amazing to work with! Really fast communication, and was receptive to any and all feedback/revisions I had. Really happy with the final master! I'll definitely be working with him again!

  9. Review by Chiara Z.

    Francesco is a fantastic producer, mixing and mastering engineer. I have been collaborating with him for many years. The work experience is relaxed but the goals in terms of sound are always very precise. There were many revisions that I asked him, as a musician and creative my ideas are always evolving but he had immense patience with me. Thank you

    This engineer is always great at creating magic. He knows just how to glue a song into the ear. With all of the unique songs I've sent so far, this engineer always achieves at making the song the best it can be. This song in particular was full of many layers, and the engineer created a listening experience that is soothing and extremely enjoyable. I'm again very and absolutely satisfied with the product.

  11. Review by Max D.
    by Max D.

    Again, I am very happy to have worked with Francesco. For this specific track I provided stems of which I applied heavy distortion effects to, which could be challenging for the wrong engineer, however Francesco proved himself to be the right person for the job. Francesco was able to create a mix and master that sounds warm and inviting— something very pleasant to the ear even with my aggressive distortion effects. I couldn't be more pleased with his work.

  12. Review by Max D.
    by Max D.

    I am happy again working with this engineer. For this job specifically, I did suggest an EQ adjustment as a revision, which I understand is a risky request since it can mess up the tonal balance of a song, however, Francesco was able to apply great care in executing my suggestion while preserving the integrity of the mix and maintaining the industry standard tonal balance. My music is unique, and Francesco always impresses me with his technical/creative decisions that always exemplify the track.

  13. Review by Max D.
    by Max D.

    Working with Francesco is the obvious right choice for me. He is able to greatly elevate a song using subtle decisions that show a lot of care went into the work. This is my second job with Francesco and again I was satisfied with the first version of his mix and master without needing to request revisions, though he happily offers revisions if felt needed which is awesome. This engineer has a very good ear.

  14. Review by Max D.
    by Max D.

    Straight up professional— he made my song sound pro. My demo was paper thin and now it's thick and full and wonderful in the ears. Everything seems to sound the way it should and he has an exceptional taste to the point where he was able to make artistic decisions that were beyond what I could conjure. I recommend working with this engineer.

    by Francesco Brusco

    Taking for granted the great competence as a sound and editing engineer, what we loved most about our recording experience with Là Nua was the atmosphere pervading The Basement. I know, it may sound trivial, but it's not. Usually studio sessions are characterized by a certain race against time. Working at The Basement we might say that time has stopped. The making of of our album,"Just For Taste", has benefited from the great calm and extreme attention to detail. That said, what for us sums up the atmosphere in his studio is... five o'clock tea (look at the album cover...)!

    Molto professionale, qualità audio eccellente. Disponibilissimo e sempre attento alle richieste dell'artista. L'ho scoperto l'anno scorso tramite il consiglio di un amico e continuo a collaborarci. Sinceramente mai avuto nessun tipo di problema, neanche il più piccolo. Consiglio vivamente sia per per registrazioni in studio che per mix e master (tra l'altro lo studio è stupendo)

Interview with Francesco Scauzillo

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

  2. A: Surely it was a live by Dee Dee Bridgewater, a famous American singer in the jazz field. A concert of a few years ago, in an old theater in the city of Salerno. She sang with a big band. I did the F.o.H. engineer and recorded the entire concert in multitrack, I then did the mixing and mastering in the studio. The promoters then published online a video with the highlights of the live using my mix and master.

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

  4. A: I'm on different platforms and I work everyday on different types of projects. However most of the work is mixing and mastering.

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

  6. A: Actually no, I know there are many good professionals but I don't know one or more than one in particular.

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: I have several analog outboards but I tell you digital for life! The quality of digital is now high and the management of projects with digital is magnificent. Especially when you are working on more than one song at the same time. Finally, the development of some plugins in recent years with specific and particular functions create sounds that are practically impossible to have with analog.

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

  10. A: Actually no promises. At least I don't think that work should also be based on promises. When I interact with a potential client I provide him with a lot of my material so he has a clear idea of what quality I can provide.

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

  12. A: The vibrations. From an early age I was fascinated by the vibrations that music creates, having the volume knob in my hands is something fabtastico, something almost personal that goes deep into me up to childhood memories.

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

  14. A: I can't answer you on this, there are many things related to the pitch of the voice, to the editing, to the details of the mixes. In general nothing so particular as to remain so imprinted in my mind

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

  16. A: Hard question! It is impossible to generalize, however an interesting aspect is that trust. Online it is difficult to have the customer's trust right away. Fortunately, once the first master is delivered, the client listens and understands that he can feel comfortable and that we can work together.

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

  18. A: I usually ask clients to give me some reference tracks to understand immediately, in practical terms, what their reference are in terms of sound so that I can understand what their expectations.

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

  20. A: I would like to advise him to look for a positive experience as well as quality, which means looking for a professional interested in him and his music, capable of understanding his point of view and guaranteeing a job well done.

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

  22. A: Pro Tools on M1, SoundToys Devil Loc Plugin, Grado Headphones, Dangerous Music Source Converter

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

  24. A: I bring my experience and my knowledge, guaranteeing the professional quality that every artist deserves. Each song can have a huge improvement. Mixing is not just balancing volume and tone, but it is setting yourself a goal in terms of sound and getting something unique out of the piece.

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

  26. A: If we talk about mixing and mastering, my work process is based on simple but specific points: first of all I try to create a relationship with the artist, to understand his needs and put him in a situation of comfort by offering maximum attention and guarantee a great experience. I get the multitrack from the client and check that everything is ok, otherwise I provide further assistance to get the best files for the work. I proceed with the mix and the master and in 5/6 days I send the song to the client, from here the revision phases start: I collect all the customer's information and feedback, even the smallest details and I make the necessary revisions to achieve the highest quality that the client wants. Usually in 3 or 4 rounds of revision we get the goal

  27. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  28. A: My studio setup is very simple, I work mostly 'in teh box'. I use pro tools and a very large range of pluigin to satisfy all the needs of the different musical genres I work on. I chose a top-level digital-to-analog converter (dangerous music at 192khz-24bit). The studio monitors are genelec 1030As, to which I recently added a presonus subwoofer to work well on genres like edm and hip hop. I work in an acoustically treated direction that refers to the AES-Socity audio standards

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

  30. A: There are so many good professionals who inspire me a lot. One above all is Serban Ghenea, a mixer engineer who works with the best pop artists on the planet. The sound of him is formidable and is a great inspiration to me.

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

  32. A: In recent years, I am mainly working with online mixing and mastering. Also full productions, using my professional studio and a network of professional musicians for the recordings that the client requires. I spent 2 decades on stages as an f.o.h. sound engineer, stage engineer and stage manager. In the last few years, for various reasons, I have dedicated myself more to production and post-production in the studio.

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

  34. A: At 14 I started studying guitar, at 17 I had my first cover bands and we often played around in pubs and festivals. At 18 I started recording my first analogue works. From here began the passion for professional audio: I attended several courses of Sound Technician, at 21 I started my first professional activity, I worked as an assistant in several recording studios and finally in 2014 I opened my own studio. I have been in business for over 20 years already!

  35. Q: How would you describe your style?

  36. A: "Schematically creative"; may seem like an contradiction, but actually it's the basis for a great mix: basically, in the mix I apply well-established techniques and processes, following a precise work scheme and then I switch to experimentation, that leaves total room for creativity.

  37. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  38. A: I have no preference. I believe that with all artists, both professionals and amateurs, you can have important and constructive experiences, always learning new things, modifying established techniques and applying new experiments.

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

  40. A: I really like, especially for EDM and HipHop, to use the ISOL8 plugin to split the bass on two separate tracks: the first one works on the range 35-85hz, the second one from 85hz up. In this way I can always find the right bass tone giving the mix as much depth as possible, which is essential for today's music genres.

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

  42. A: I work in all genres: hip hop, EDM, pop, rock, also Jazz and Folk.

  43. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  44. A: I guess patience! The client may ask me to raise the voice by only half a db and then, in the next revision, ask me to do exactly the opposite, namely to lower the voice by half a db: I will always be happy to do so. Creative processes involve easy mind shifts, so the key to having 100% satisfied clients is patience. There are many technical skills to be used for good work, but the human side is equally important.
