Davide Lepido on SoundBetter

Recording Engineer

Hi guys, my name is Davide Lepido, I graduated from the NAM Institute in Milan as a Sound Engineer.
I offer recording, mixing and mastering services. I love everything that is played and I pay particular attention to the recording step that I consider indispensable for a good mix. In my studio you can find some great classics like Neumann, AKG, Electronics Labs, SSL and more. I love rock and pop music and I work also on production. Do you need someone to play the drum in your song? or someone who plays guitar, bass or synthesizers? I'm the right person! If you've already recorded your songs you can send me and I mix it for you.

Send me an email through 'Contact' button above and I'll get back to you asap.
