Riccardo Pasini on SoundBetter

I've worked with many nationally and internationally successful artists as well as countless local and independent talent, in a variety of genres. I have worked with most succesful hardcore, punk and metal italian bands.

Riccardo is an Italian music producer and sound engineer who is credited on many Italian and international records. Even though he is specialised in heavy sounds, his productions cover a wide range of styles and genres: from pop to heavy metal, from folk to avantgarde.
He began his journey as an assistant sound engineer at Smile studios in 1994 in Forlì working with famous musicians such as Jovanotti (Italian singer-songwriter and rapper) and Laura Pausini (Italian pop singer-songwriter, record producer and tv personality).
After his training there he moved to Fear studios in Ravenna as head of sound engineering, starting collaborations with some of the finest italian underground bands. Within a few years his productions through Fear studios became a benchmark for alternative italian music.
In 2003, however, came the time to pursue his dream of running his own studio in Ravenna: STUDIO73. From here on his professional development and knowledge improved greatly as he started working with international bands.
Over the years Riccardo has become more specialized in online music mixing and mastering in order to satisfy today’s most common requests. He is one of the only italian music engineers that offers free samples for both the mixing or mastering phases.

    I'm always left speechless after i get the final results from Riccardo, honestly the best production i've heard. I keep saying it makes the band sound massive, huge and epic, which in fact is true! Riccardo is such an amazing friend and a very talented one at that. I am truly proud of what we have done together so far, and there will be many more to come very soon! Thanks again my friend for the hard work, absolute pleasure as always!

    Always so happy to work with Riccardo, he just nailed the mix with this last project. It's such a good feeling to finally hear songs at their fullest potential and realizing how good they are once Riccardo is done with them. Amazing guy to work with and i love to give him some creative freedom to mix our songs in the way he sees best for them. Never a dull moment with Riccrardo, i appreciate the effort my friend!

    This is my seventh project with Riccardo and, once again, I am completely happy with his work. He has a remarkable talent for understanding my vision from my rough mix, and translating it into a polished finished song. He is always quick and precise with revisions (and there are usually very few revisions to be made). And always the drums sound massive!

    My songs always take a new life when i send them to Riccardo. He brings them to their up most potential and the songs really show how great they are once he is done with them. He really does turn them into something beautiful and i appreciate that so much! thanks again my friend.

    This is my 6th project with Riccardo and he is the only mixing engineer I will work with! He has a great talent for making all the elements of a complex song (multi-tracked guitars, layered backing vocals) audible, giving it a full, lush sound. He also does magic with drums! He is more than an engineer - he has become a partner in the creative process!

    This has been another great project with Riccardo. As always, he understands what the song needs and creates a mix that is better than I could have imagined! The first mix was nearly perfect and he quickly made the small revisions I asked for. He communicates promptly and clearly, and is very easy to work with,
