  20. A: The only advice I would give is to be convinced of your music and to give it an added value, for the rest I think that the collaboration between artist producer and audio Engineer is fundamental for the success of the song and you have to put everyone on the same level and work at best with the maximum mutual respect and especially comparing

  21. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  29. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  30. A: What I always say when a producer asks me for advice is "less is more!" focus on the strengths of production and make it emerge without necessarily adding many tools that instead of improving production fill it unnecessarily making it confusing

  31. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  32. A: Over the years I have worked with many artists who proposed different musical genres and maybe this versatility can be seen as my strong point, given the historical period certainly a good percentage of my works is linked to Trap music, Reggaeton and Deep House

  33. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  34. A: It is a difficult question in the sense that I put passion and professionalism in everything I do and my approach to work is always professional and precise in every situation, I can say that the part I like the most are treating drums and choirs

  35. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  36. A: In every song I always try to put my own with creative choices that characterize my style, obviously everything must be done in a coherent way and in line with the song and the reference of the artist

  37. Q: What's your typical work process?

  38. A: After talking to the artist and the producer, after receiving all the material to be able to work I start organizing the session based on how I structured my work flow, after preparing the session start with the gain staging phase with the aim of not making every single audio track 0 analog so as to allow external plugins and Gear to operate with an adequate signal level, then I start editing and then the real mix of the song begins. Once the mix has been approved I proceed to the mastering of the song that will be either for streaming or for CDs or for vinyl according to the requests that I am made before by the customer

  39. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  40. A: As for audio Engineer I am fan of Irko while as an artist at the moment I listen a lot to extra Italian artists in the American and French Music Industry

  41. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  42. A: The most common work I do is as a mix and mastering Engineer, I curate the song from its recording to the final master which will be destined either for streaming or master for CD or vinyl
