    Max è un professionista nel campo audio. Passione e professionalità sono gli aggettivi che più lo contraddistinguono. E' un piacere anche solo guardarlo lavorare ma soprattutto imparare da lui è soddisfacente e poco faticoso. Inoltre è una persona di cultura con la quale si può parlare piacevolmente di qualunque cosa. Top!

    Beyond friendship, behind a person with an impressive professionalism.
    Passion and love in what makes him stand out from other professionals.
    meticulous in every moment of the mix or the mastering, as well as a source of advice in the work if something is wrong.
    At the next GROOVE,
    My friend

    From over 10 years GSD is my choice for my music, not only for mastering. Max, the owner, shows deep knowledge on every single aspect of a music production. For many years his advice has helped me to grow in my wok. For this reason, I really would thank him. GSD n.1

    Grande professionalità e competenza tecnica, ma soprattutto sensibilità, gusto e capacità di entrare subito in sintonia con il concept alla base del mio progetto musicale. Mi sono rivolto a GSD per la masterizzazione di un piccolo EP sperimentale, "Draft Tunes", e il risultato finale è stato veramente eccellente!
