Sei un produttore di musica elettronica? Hai uno studio di registrazione e non sai dove masterizzare i lavori che produci? DDA Mastering potrebbe essere quello che stavi cercando. Questo servizio on-line, curato in prima persona da Enrico Mantini, è a disposizione di tutti gli artisti, etichette e studi di registrazione che richiedono mastering in alta qualità a prezzi ragionevoli.
Lo studio è equipaggiato esclusivamente con hardware anni ’90. Non vengono rivelate troppe informazioni specifiche, ma compressori analogici, limiter multi-banda ed equalizzatori, grazie all’esperienza di Enrico, sapranno dare alla tua musica proprio quel suono caldo che stai cercando.
Qui sotto abbiamo selezionato alcuni esempi:
“Upon request I can record the source material on tape to add that kind of extra ’Magic’ to Your Tracks. Both wheel to wheel tape or cassette technologies are available in the studio, spanning from a cleaner tape tone to a gentle dirtiness.”
Come molti sanno Enrico Mantini è da sempre un appassionato di campionatori e campionamenti. Sono sicuramente meno coloro che conoscono le librerie che sta rilasciando nella sua pagina Bandcamp. Il materiale è quello originale, archiviato dal 1988 fino ad oggi, presente in molte delle sue uscite in vinile. Se anche tu sei ‘fuori’ come noi per questa arte, allora ti invitiamo a provare queste chicche dentro al tuo campionatore.

TC Studio / Onur Özer – Prolog EP Label: TC STUDIO Catalog#: TCS001 Format: 2×12″ Vinyl Country: Ro Released: 2013
A. TC Studio / Onur Özer – Untouched B. TC Studio / Onur Özer – Totem C. TC Studio / Onur Özer – Lapona D. TC Studio / Onur Özer – Hotel Pelican
TC Studio are Matei Tulbure and Traian Chereches and they have been around for a while. their odyssey started a few years ago and since, they have released on labels such as Archipel, All in or Neo Strictly. naturally they came to the conclusion that their own imprint is necessary and perhaps quite expected. bearing their project name the label sets out to be an outpost for their work and posssibly other’s. Prolog is the first release presenting 4 tracks on 2 vinyls. 3 of the four track are collaborations between Traian Chereches, Matei Tulbure and Onur Ozer.
Untouched is clearly intended for the dancefloor. mystery is flowing all over, the kicks and claps keep you moving while the bassline keeps you waiting. on the other side Totem seems to be mare playfull, piano lines conspire with subtle voices to achieve a childish yet serious atmosphere. Lapona is yet another percusssive bomb. crowded with background voices and crazy synths this is guaranteed to make you move. Hotel pelican is the darkest of the pack by far. creepy sounds keeep lurching around the corner making it impossible to tell where you are. abandoned factory, secret lab or maybe just tc’s imagination.

Petre Inspirescu – Un Livret De Duminica Label: Pluie/Noir Recordings Catalog#: PNR001 Format: Vinyl, Limited Edition Country: Portugal Released: 27 Jun 2012 Site: Pluie/Noir
A. Un Livret De Duminica
B. Synth Society
Credits: Pluie/Noir has been pushing the boundaries between the worlds of music and graphic art. Slowly gaining reputation with their already respectable podcast series of music and triptych artwork interpretations, their debut as a vinyl-only imprint comes nothing short of daze. Signed by no other than Romanian tour-de-force Petre Inspirescu, this EP delivers two quite distinct yet wonderfully immersive moments of pure bliss and incredible production forte. Un Livret de Duminica strikes somehow familiar to his musical adventures as TT Ensemble out on his own Yojik-Concon, and re-imagines it in a different yet dreamy setting where classic music once again bends with the finest micro-house grooves. Synth Society draws the listener away from the skyline and lands him inside a giant modular system. Here the hooks are on the addicting bassline and the unsettling sense of room space on all frequencies of modular sounds he used, proving that Petre is without a doubt one of the most intelligent and provocative music writters/producers around. Artwork was drawn by talented fine-arts student and music producer Traian Chereches (TC Studio), member of the P/N Artist Collective. Definitely a great start for the imprint, and a mere glimpse of whats coming next Distributed By – Intergroove Printed By – Handle With Care Copyright (c) – Pluie/Noir Recordings Artwork – Traian Chereches Design – Max Binski Producer – Petre Inspirescu
