I carefully elaborate the sound of your song making it warm, unique and recognizable.
I use analog technologies of the highest quality, such as:
● Equalizers● Compressors● Saturators● Stereophonic Image Processors● Limiters
I optimize the sound so that your music can be heard well regardless of the type of playback equipment you use.
I work on your track so that it can meet the current recording market quality standards, bringing your sound to a professional level.


1) Critical Evaluation:
Technical Analysis Of Quality

I listen carefully to your song and identify the weak points from a technical point of view and the small flaws or smudges that can be fixed.

In short, I check that there are no mixing errors between the various instruments or defects in the individual tracks that make up the mix.

2) Artistic Evaluation:
Analysis of musical choices in relation to your musical genre.

I carefully analyze the arrangement of your song and evaluate if the sound quality of the instruments you used reaches the quality standards required by your musical genre.

"A top professional"

"I came into contact with Alessandro, thanks to Time Records, who, after signing my single 'Stand Up,' advised me to rely on his professionalism for mastering.
It was indeed a great success!
More than two years have passed, and even today, I still rely on Alessandro Ciuffetti for some services.
In fact, we often collaborate on my productions, as he has great ability to assist others not only as an audio technician but also as a musician.
I would recommend Alessandro to all producers who are looking for a mix and mastering that can compete on the international scene, knowing that they will find a serious and highly skilled professional.

"I recommend him to anyone"

“I always had doubts that my tracks wouldn't be perfect when I finished them.
Thanks to Alessandro though, I was able to focus more on the creative part and leave the mixing and mastering details all to him.
Now I trust him blindly; he is very objective about the work he does.
Based on my personal experience, I recommend him to anyone who needs an professional to finalize their songs, even to those who have always chosen to do their own mastering.
Having an objective ear like his, is definitely an upgrade that one must make to become a true pro.”

"A Reliable Guide"

"I met Alessandro while collaborating together on a music project in a family home and immediately admired his sensitivity and kindness.

Since that first meeting, other wonderful professional experiences have followed, which have made our collaboration stronger and more special because Alessandro, besides being an attentive, scrupulous and perfectionist professional, is a person who knows how to understand you, put you at your ease and support you with willingness and tenacity.

He has always listened to me and valued me, allowing me to be myself without the worry of having to earn his respect and without the need to overcome that masculinity that I often encounter in the music business environment.

We have recently been working on my new record and I am happy that he has come on board this small ship in a sea that is always rough and often stormy, emotionally difficult, but thanks to his support makes me feel part of a team and less alone."

"Has talent and passion"

"I discovered Alessandro through other colleagues, and we immediately connected artistically and personally.
I was looking for someone who could help me enhance the technical level of my music in order to achieve the precise sound that great artists have.
Alessandro immediately offered his talent and passion. His approach to mastering is very versatile and innovative, and he always tries to empathize with the artist while respecting their ideas.
I would recommend Alessandro to those who are never satisfied, to those who want to raise the level of their productions and compete internationally. I would also recommend him to beginners who want to start off on the right foot.
With Alessandro, you will find professionalism, availability, and pragmatism. Highly recommended."

"Professional, reliable, open"

The first time I contacted Alessandro for mastering one of my songs, I was immediately impressed by his generous openness.
From that moment on, thanks to his professionalism, excellent final product, and (I dare say) the friendship we developed over time, I turned to him for every one of my songs.
I decided to entrust him with my first unreleased album as well, and the result was impeccable in terms of quality and professionalism.
I recommend Alessandro to anyone looking for a top-level final result for their project, in line with the standards of every successful contemporary song.
I feel like I can 'sum up' Alessandro in a few words: professional, reliable, open, listening, friendly, and with a kind soul.

“I met Alessandro through the Audio course I attended at Naive Recording Studio.
For me, achieving a high level of audio mastering quality was a real challenge, but Alessandro always managed to finalize my work at the top, without compromises, thanks to his experience and in-depth knowledge.
To top it all off, he has an impeccable acoustic control room equipped with the best analog audio mastering equipment I have seen.

"The right person"

“I have never been able to find the right person who could meet my needs.
In Alessandro, I found a competent professional with a great knowledge and a deep love for music, qualities that are strangely hard to find among professionals in this field.
I would recommend Alessandro to everyone because despite his high-level skills, he continues to work with humility that drives him to explore genres seemingly further from his world, always achieving impeccable results."

"A very open and friendly person"

“I discovered Alessandro by contacting Naive Mastering Studio in Fano.
I was looking for a mastering studio to finalize my musical tracks at a professional level, so I could release them on major digital platforms.
Alessandro was the right person to fulfill what I was looking for, and in a short time, he helped me master my first three musical tracks.
I would recommend Alessandro to anyone in need of mixing and mastering because, in addition to being very skilled and competent, he also has a friendly and approachable work style.
This allows the artist to actively collaborate with Alessandro until the desired results are achieved.”

About Me

Alessandro Ciuffetti nel suo studio

Hi, my name is Alessandro Ciuffetti and I was born in Rimini on January 23, 1979.
Attracted by the intense nightlife of the clubs in the area, the encounter with music was natural and inevitable. In the early 2000s, with my band (Brevia, in which I was the drummer) I played all over Italy, gaining some success.
At that point, the desire to learn more about the world of professional audio prompted me to attend the sound engineer course at Francesco De Benedittis' Naïve Recording Studio, one of the most important recording studios in Italy.
I currently work at Naïve Mastering, the area of ​​the Naïve Recording Studio that deals with audio mastering.
