What: Audio Engineer & Composer

Where:Vicenza, Italy

API Gear:2500 Compressor, 512c Mic Pre

From the Street:

"In my mastering chain, I use the 2500 as the final compressor. It is absolutely gorgeous to help glue everything together, and get 3 dBu without hearing anything other than great sound. I can get more punch or a silky kind of compression just playing with the tone and different settings of compression. I really can't finish my mastering chain without it.

"I also have a 512c mic preamp, which is my first choice for vocals and guitars. I absolutely love the mid frequencies it gives me; I really can touch the sound. It's irresistible!"
