A professional and very customer focused guy! The second job what again excellent! Many thx
Matteo is an excellent teacher—he knows how to give thorough feedback while being both honest and encouraging. We did not get to the mixing / mastering stage because first I wanted to incorporate all the great production and arrangement tips he gave. Looking forward to working with him again and soon.
Great mix&master work as always.

Can’t recommend him highly enough, I am sure you won't regret it.
Interview with Matteo Cerescioli
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: First of all seeing my clients smile. Second, the possibility to improve an existing track with my knowledge and my creativity.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Will i be able to release my song on a big label? It's just a matter of time and effort you put into music making. I'll always do my best to have you 100% satisfied and i will help you getting there.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I've had the chance to assist the gurus who created the sounds for the popular video games "Sunset Overdrive" and "Halo" David Earl (the SFlogicninja) and Matt Donner. This opportunity helped me to understand how much dedication the real professionals put into their productions and taught me countless techniques which i'm still using everyday to make great sounding records.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Nowadays high quality plug-ins can do wonders and they are extremely powerful and perfectly crafted. On the other hand hardware is something which i will never get tired of using, just because it brings that warm/analog touch everyone loves. I would say a combination of both is my recipe for a big crisp sound.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: How much creative input do you want me to put into the mix? What's the element of the track you like the most? Do you have any songs you really like the sound of?
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Clarity, creativity, punch/energy. Other than approaching the mix in a classic way, I like to add my personal touch depending on each client's needs. If requested, I will work on minor edits and fx to enhance the dynamics and to improve the weaker sections of the track.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been working in the music field for 8 years now. In 2014 I moved to California to attend a master program in sound design, mixing and mastering at Pyramind Studios, in San Francisco. The next year i got the certifications for Logic Pro X, Ableton, Pro Tools and Waves Audio. I worked as studio assistant at Pyramind and produced for big names such as Ian Golden, owner of DjTechTools and one of the remixes I made, won the first prize of Jon Sine’s “Dawning” contest. I'm Ableton Certified and teaching music has been an important step in my career path. Since May 2017 i’m part of "Tutor Audio", an online educational platform for music production, mixing and mastering.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Always keep your eyes on the meters and trust your ears. Balance the single channels together before applying any type of processing. Getting the gain staging right is the best way to start a successful mix.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Being able to mix with creativity and giving to the my clients the sound they're looking for. I'm also extremely reliable and open to meeting every client's need. Last but not least, i love building a healthy relationship with the people i get to work with.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Deep House, EDM, Hip-Hop, Trap, Techno. Love working on tracks with vocals and dancefloor stuff but I frequently find myself mixing more relaxed music which I enjoy doing as well.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Focus on using a limited number of elements in your productions and try to get them to sound good together, filling the frequency spectrum in a smart way. You don't want many sounds building up in the same frequency range. Also don't over compress/limit the single tracks for a more natural sound. I then will take care of the mixing to achieve pro results.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Editing, Mixing and Mastering tracks. I'm also getting a number of requests for ghost production and beat making.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Unfortunately not yet, but i'm looking forward to meeting great musicians on SoundBetter!
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Mastering doesn't do magic if the mix is not on point.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Luca Pretolesi is an awesome professional with such a wide knowledge and charisma. He's been a huge source of inspiration for myself in the years. I'm also a fan of Graham Cochrane and Young Guru.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: My Macbook Pro, Korg SH 101, Virus Ti, Apollo 16 and OP1 to have some fun!
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Every mix is different and i like to have a different approach depending on the style and on the way the song was produced. That said, i usually start with importing the stems and organizing the project. Grouping, labeling and color coding tracks are some of the steps i do in the first place. Then, i give the song a deeper listen, trying to understand the mood and coming up with some mix ideas. My next move would be balancing all of the single channels before applying any type of processing. Then Eq, compression and so on. I constantly test the mix on different speakers and sound systems to understand if it translates well everywhere. When i'm happy with the result, i work on some fine adjustments on the mix bus, applying some subtle analog compression and eq to enrich the overall sound.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I work in a nice cozy studio furnished with a pair of Adam A7X + Subwoofer, Focal Alpha 80, analog compressors like the Api 2500, dangerous mixer and many analog synthesizers, such as Korg SH 101, Virus Ti, Elektron machines, Volca series, Juno 106.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I'll do my best to impress yourself, taking your song to the next level
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I tend to use the latest techniques and tricks, so I would say: innovative.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Luca Pretolesi, Young Guru, Diplo. They are incredible professionals who dedicated their life to music
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Mixing, mastering and producing tracks is what I do every day. I enjoy the whole process so much and I love to experiment with new techniques to achieve the best results possible.
