Alex is definitely a Godsend. He is professional, easy to work with and 100% knowledgeable about the craft of engineering. He will take your sound to the highest possible level. He is the REAL THING. Not many are out there and easily accessible who have Eminem gold records on their walls. Trust his ears! You won't be sorry.
As an up & coming rapper finding her style in this crazy world, I really found a gem when Alex responded to my ad seeking an audio engineer. Alex Reverberi not only impressed the hell out of me, he also is a pleasure to work with. If you're looking for a talented, skilled and patient engineer to work with, look no further.

Interview with Alex Reverberi
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: As much as I grew up using tape machines and there's nothing like the smell of a fresh reel of tape in the morning, nowadays technology has reached incredible quality, and the ability to be able to work on several projects at the same time and go back where I left off with a click of a mouse it's just major. By working in the box I can easily recall mixes and do changes as needed without needing to have the studio tied up for days on the one song waiting for label and or artist approval.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Every day its different
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Did you really work with Eminem? Yes I did :) I worked with him at Larrabee Studios West during the making of the Eminem Show.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Mixing and mastering are not some sort of black magic that can everything and make a song a hit. A hit song its an hit song before it gets to the mixing engineer
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Moved to the USA in 93 from Italy to study music, few years after graduating I became a small recording studio owner and started working with the local Punk rock scene. As my career progressed I found myself working in some of the premiere recording studios in the world and with some of the biggest name in the industry. In the mid 2000s when the streaming industry collapsed the recording industry I moved myself out of the mainstream and went back to my roots working with independent and unsigned artists trying to bring them my years of experience in the majors.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Dont try to make everything perfect, we are human we are not machines, love your imperfections as much a s you love yourself and you records will touch more listeners than a perfectly quantized and autotuned recording.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I work on pretty much anything, my biggest commercial success are in Rap and Pop music, but my career started with Punk Rock.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: For when it comes to mixing I like to hear a rough mix from the client so I can get a good idea of the direction of the song. The during the mixing process I tired to expand on the client vision while adding my little own spot on certain elements. During the tracking process, specially with live bands I like for the band to work without headphones and have everybody in the same room, this to me gives the recording a more organic feel
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: In my private home studio I run Pro-tools, Logic and Luna, paired with 24 inputs of Universal Audio Apollos, and several pieces of analog outboard gear and all the plugins you can dream of. The room itself is treated and acoustically designed for sound although being in a home.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: All Them Witches, Jack White, Black Keys, Radiohead, The Kills, Russian Circles. Andrew Scheps, Tchad Blake. Vance Powell
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: The most important skill in producing or mixing is to serve the song. With that in mind I really focus in finding what makes the song move and build around that.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Manny Marroquín, Andrew Scheps, Tchad Blake
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Mixing, Mastering, and Tracking
