Francesco Salvadori on SoundBetter

Mixing and Mastering Engineer, Electronic music Producer and Live Performer. Bachelor in Audio Engineering and Music Production at Middlesex University (Bachelor of Art). The Famous Goldwatch Audio Visual Studio resident Mastering Engineer. My main goal is to help the independent and alternative artist community.

My field of expertise is Folk / Americana / Indie/ Rock / Synthwave / Postpunk as well as Techno / House / Minimal.

Your production will sonically compete with the given reference.
As Mastering Engineer, my aim is to deliver the best sounding track and the best experience between different media, I'm very happy to advise you in the mixing stage in order to get the best result in mastering.
I tend to do "what the track needs" and not overwhelm your production with a lot of colour or compression (unless you want it because I can, big time!).
If you want me to Mix your track, please contact me for a proper consultation.

A hybrid workflow is my go-to for Mixing and Mastering. In short, corrections on your delivered files are performed digitally before the program is sent to the analogue chain for tonal balance, colour and compression.

Please do not hesitate to ask me questions, I'm here for you and your music.

Let's get to biz...

    Francesco has been mastering my debut album and I couldn't be happier! He got it to sound as sweet and smooth as I had envisioned and gave the mixes the cherry on top! He listens to the music very closely and that is audible in the end results!

    I've worked quite a few times with Francesco with different projects and I have to say it's always been a very pleasant experience. He knows what his doing and I love when he thinks outside the box to reach the desired sound. It's always nice to work with competent people that are also easy going and make you feel that you're respected. I look forward to bumping into him at a future studio session!

    Frank did the mastering and mixing of one of our songs and we were more than happy with the result! He is a talented and (more important) committed sound magician which I only can recommend, also because of his kind nature. His home studio is also a cosy environment allowing you to fully focus on the work.

    Frank Salvadori has unique and original style in the production, large knowledge in all music genres and engineering and ability to work on different projects. We where initially apprehensive about finding a sofisticated audio engineer for our jazz project but Frank met all our expectations and more. Recording with him was really nice experience. Highly recommend!

Interview with Francesco Salvadori

  1. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  2. A: Both of them. If you know your tools you will achieve the best result with what is needed, but I always try a touch of analogue transformers.

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

  4. A: I don't do magic.

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

  6. A: The most detailed vision and reference tracks.

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

  8. A: Rock, Electronic music, Indie rock, Pop and Synthwave

  9. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  10. A: I have a Hybrid setup. I mix groups in Cubase, Pro Tools or Ableton and I sum them with the analogue mixing board.

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

  12. A: Mastering for the most, a few mixing and recording overdubs.

  13. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  14. A: Attention to detail and empathy. Most of the time a top production is not perfect, some time that little imperfection is what makes it so unique, the challenge is to find it and be able to recognize it.

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

  16. A: A new problem, on a daily basis.

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

  18. A: My own vision of sound or the closest approximation to a reference. Depends on what I'm paid for.
