Alex Santilli on SoundBetter

Hey! I'm Alex Santilli, a Grammy nominated audio engineer, producer, speaker designer, studio manager, electronic retrofitter, and ‘Gear Whisperer’ that operates Spice House Sound in Philadelphia. I'm obsessed with audio quality and I'm nice and approachable. And I respond to emails lol

It's my life's mission to make music sound as beautiful as technically possible. I go so far as to develop my own equipment and speakers to more accurately work on your music! I've got 15+ years of mastering experience but have only recently completely fallen in love with it. Let's make your music the best it can be!

Bio:

"A singular drive and focus to extract the maximum audio quality out of every performance, recording, and piece of audio equipment is what drives Alex Santilli’s unique approach to audio engineering. When the scientific method meets artistic sensibilities, they come to form never before seen designs such as Spice House Sound’s signature phase-flat monitors. Unique electrical networks deployed through custom made drivers create a previously unheard clarity of sound for anyone with sensitive ears

This same sensitivity and taste is applied when mixing and mastering. An arsenal of handpicked and custom equipment make up a purposeful and ever-evolving chain of equipment that puts a unique sonic stamp on all of his work. Size, clarity, fidelity, texture – no matter the project, you’ll find these highlighted in his work.

Alex has spoken at both AES and NAMM and is currently an Adjunct Professor at University of the Arts teaching Advanced Mixing and Mastering, Advanced Microphone Techniques, and Speaker Design."
