Recording and Mixing 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.
From 2019 I collaborate as a teacher at nam institute in Milan.
I'm a Mixing and Recording Engineer, and I will turn your tracks into professional mixes.
Moreover, Do you need someone to play the drum in your song? or someone who plays guitar, bass or synthesizers? I'm the right person, contact me!

Great worker, passionate, he loves what he does.
He always tries to understand what you need and, most importantly, he "translates" his technical skills to make you better understand everything he's doing.
And of course the results are top notch
Dave is great. He is professional, methodical, detail-oriented and surely knows his way around mixing, whether it is in or out of the box. He is constantly up-to-date on the latest piece of hardware and software, which allows him to bring the best solution to your mix, always tailored to your needs and vision.
