Italian audio engineer, electronic music producer, and performer. Graduated in Audio Engineering and Music Production at Middlesex University (Bachelor of Art).
Hello, I am Francesco, a Mixing and Mastering Engineer based in Berlin, Germany. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Music Production and several years of experience as Front of House for experimental and electronic music acts in known clubs. If you envision your production to be played in a dark and foggy club of the capital of Techno don't hesitate to contact me.
Your mixes will sound solid at home and you'll feel the bass in the gut once played in a club.
My field of expertise is Minimal / Deep-House / Techno / Electro / IDM / Ambient / Drone / Synthwave / Postpunk.
Your production will compete in loudness with the most famous techno and electronic music labels played in the Berlin Club scene. I will deliver you a finished file that you can use for online promotion as well as a maxed-out file for playing.
I also offer my help to direct you to the best labels to get inspired and reference your tracks.
Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.

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!

Francesco helped me out in one of my film projects and worked as the boom operator for my project. His work ethic is great and is a reliable person
I worked with the right sound operator in my production. He managed all the technical problems and was professional!
Francesco gave me a huge hand with technical support for music production, mixing, synthesis and signal flow. His dedication to the audio field is definitely something that I admire. He has unlimited knowledge brilliant mind and his way to handle things with musicians and music producers it's simply great.
Francesco tuned my vocal and mixed with a track I sent him. Well done!
Work with Francesco is amazing. He has passion and skill. And he also great in understand what a musician want . The voice and the guitar I recorded with him are the best I ever made .. I will recommended him for any work in studio
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
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: A Fender P-Bass, an MTK Cassette recorder, Neumann u87, Eventide H3000, Barefoot Micromain 27.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started as an Audio Technician for various Berlin Clubs in 2017. I used this time to reference my tracks in big and established sound systems. My studio has been growing slowly and with the vision of gathering the best gear for the purpose.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Electronic music, Indie rock, Pop and Synthwave
Q: What's your strongest skill?
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.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: The first step is to create a plan in my head. I do levels and volume automation on the channels before I proceed with insert and send effects. When I'm happy with what I hear I try to improve depth and stereo image before I start working on the Master Channel.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a Hybrid setup. I mix groups in Pro Tools and I sum them with the analog mixing board.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: NIN productions are the most inspiring overall, nevertheless, I have no favorite genre. Everything I listen to from the beginning to the end is my favorite music. I'm charmed by Erika Badu hip-hop/soul, Imogen Heap for vocal details and sounds, Beastie Boys and their sampling art, Pearl Jam and Nirvana. Tchad Blake is a genius. I like the engineering behind mainstream genres and I try to bring the clarity and definition of those sounds into electronic music.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I am frequently asked to mix vocals on various kinds of beats, from hip-hop to ethereal electronic and indie rock. Most of the time musicians come to me with a raw multitrack, or stems, to be mixed and mastered.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: A production of an indie rock band, Demo songs for a singer-songwriter, an electronic album, my live set.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both of them. Thank God we have progressed in music technology. If you know your tools you will achieve the best result with what is needed.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: A new problem, on a daily basis.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: My own vision of sound or the closest approximation to a reference. Depends on what I'm paid for.
