Mark Corradetti on SoundBetter

Grammy nominated bassist in 2021 ! For many years, I have worked for and with hundreds of artists and producers in varying styles around the world. I love getting the right tone, the right part, and making the songs happen through your vision. Please contact me and let's talk !

Contact me. Tell me about your project, and what you are looking for.
The more we communicate, the clearer we can be.

Let's work together and get the part the way you want it. Tell me how you want it and what's on your mind. When we're in a project together, I'm in your band for that time.
If you have chord sheets, or any written music, great, if not, that's ok too.
I use very high quality gear in my studio. I send you very good wav files in the bit/sample rate that you require. I use Fender/Sukop/Spector/Steinberger instruments, and a full range of other outboard gear/amps in here.
I am fanatical about things like tone, note length, and listening. Let me know if you have multiple songs, I can work out a good deal for you.

I'm usually noted for a very clean, even tone and my pocket/creativity. I've worked with a great many wonderful artists and musicians on many projects from New York, Nashville and Los Angeles, and other artists from all over the world in a variety of genres.

My day to day work is playing bass. I play in other studios, play live, and keep a full schedule. I also perform a fair amount of "ghost sessions", where I am asked to record bass for many people you may have heard of.

Check out my samples and reviews of previous work and feel free to contact me today !

    Wow! Mark is such an amazing musician and collaborator. He is a fabulous, creative bassist - the lines he crafts are just perfect and the notes just bloom; full of technique and expertise. The tone - it is just amazing what he sounds like. I work in a world-class studio that is not kind to imperfection and Mark's tracks are perfect sonically when they arrive. Finally a passionate and enthusiastic "bandmate". He would be the life and spirit of any band he is part of!!! Love working with him!

    From beginning to end, Mark was wonderful to work with. He plays beautifully and with TONS of soul but is also a great person to work with. We had a Zoom session before he started playing and got to talk about the song. He allowed me to communicate what I needed and made it so seamless that I only needed one take to approve. Great guy. Great player. Highly recommended!

Oh... and he's a SICK bass player.

    I approached Mark to get some bass guitar tracks done for a project I was doing and from now on, he's 100% my go-to bass guitar man!
    He turned the tracks around in no time at all. He has impeccable taste when it comes to tone, pays great attention to detail, and is also a really nice guy.

    Real solid bass player. Timing is spot on and bass is recorded through quality gear. Willing to do extra takes until you're satisfied. I recommend and will likely hire again. Thanks!

    Mark was super enthusiastic and it was great working with him. He made himself a team player rather than a hired gun and it shows in his work. I definitely recommend him as a session player.

    I recruited Mark to play bass on a full-length release that is still in production. I also entrusted him with picking a drummer for the project, which was a huge leap in trust for me. I flew them out to record at Hyde Street Studios. The results were stunning and more than justified the expense. Mark's sound and technique are amazing.

    Mark has worked with me for many months for my group Counting Clouds and always delivers excellent and perfect bass sounds for our music, every time.
    In my eyes by far the best bass player on this website.

Interview with Mark Corradetti

  1. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  2. A: My setup is mainly set up to load other peoples tracks and provide bass parts immediately. I recently upgraded to Digital Performer 10 as my main DAW, and record directly from a Wayne Jones dual channel pre into a variety of other tone devices from a variety of basses, (both fretted and fretless), Most of my sound comes from my hands.

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

  4. A: A big open mind and enthusiasm to my bass parts. I want to provide great support and serve the song. I also bring a great signature sound, and inventive sounding parts. The three T's also, time, tone, and taste !

  5. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  6. A: A recent project from Germany, one from France that were very good. I can't name names because I do not have their permission to do so at this time. Also, another interesting project from Korea, and I travel too. I play whatever I've agreed to and give it my all.

  7. Q: How would you describe your style?

  8. A: I am definitely flexible in that regard. I have a pop, rock and jazz background, and that has served me very well. But there are some things that are better left to other players. I am not well versed in certain things such as bluegrass, and some types of latin music, so there are definitely things that are better suited for other players other than me. I just take it project to project, and if I am not the guy, I say so.

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

  10. A: I seem to get called for my feel and tone, and to not overplay !

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

  12. A: I play a great deal of pop and EDM tracks, rock, and some jazzier stuff too. My role is usually in the rhythm section, so I am very concerned about being in sync with the drummer rhythmically, and playing the right notes to compliment the melody or vocal. It really depends on the piece of music. The music doesn't lie, ever.

  13. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  14. A: Right now I am based in Southern California and involved in various projects. Some smooth jazz, a childrens song, a hard rock song, an EDM track and some trance stuff.

  15. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  16. A: Yes Jason Meekins. He's a drummer. Also Darrell Nutt, he's a great drummer too.

  17. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  18. A: I love to play and collaborate and see people happy with the music. I get a charge out of hearing the final product !

  19. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  20. A: Just be honest, and forthright. Do what you say you are going to do, when you say you are going to do it, and communicate !

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

  22. A: I rely on my ears and formal/informal training mainly. After listening to a piece of music, I'll usually write a chart for the music as a roadmap. Then I'll try out different parts, and when I feel comfortable, I'll start playing takes. There really is no clear cut "one" way. It's all about the tone and feel. I typically like to try different ways.

  23. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  24. A: I'd say there are several. A great tone, and a great attitude go a long way whether in person and remotely. I also have a knack for being able to get several ideas in several takes which gives the client/artist choices. Also, being able to read in between the lines of directions, and give more than what is asked.

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

  26. A: a clean, strong signal and sound goes a long way. The three T's, time, tone and taste !

  27. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  28. A: I think they both have their place. Nothing wrong with 2 inch tape with that great natural compression. Digital has become a standard, as it becomes easy to exchange tracks worldwide.

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

  30. A: I'd probably just bring suntan oil, and sunglasses.

  31. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  32. A: This has always been my career path. I've been doing this nonstop since I was 15 or so. Then Berklee, then the New York Metropolitan area, then the Nashville area, and now all over the place !

  33. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  34. A: What's your vision, let's get it.

  35. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  36. A: Good question. We'd be here years.....

  37. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  38. A: My promise, is I always give it my best without fail. Everytime.

  39. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  40. A: They mainly ask if I have time. The answer is, I always have time to play !

  41. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  42. A: Can you earn a living from it ? The answer is yes, I do very well.

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

  44. A: I greatly admire all the greats, the knowns and not so knowns. Anybody that plays and/or records great music has got my vote.
