Some comments by musicians I have the honor and pleasure to collaborate with.
“Just a quick word about the mastering service of Sonologyst. I have a cassette release due in September and I figured I will process everything in time, just to make sure that things don’t get delayed. I had contact with Sonologyst and he almost instantly replied. He gave very good advice about which format suits best. So not more than a week later the tracks were on their way on May 20th. By May 26 I already got them back. They sound excellent!! Just as i wanted, far away from the loudness war and a great sense of Dynamics in the master. He even sent me an email explaining exactly what he did. This makes his work very transparent. So ready to go, but by my mistake I sent him a wrong version of a track. I asked him and I could send him the right version right away. He told me he had time to master that track a week later. And indeed a week later I received the track as the other tracks in excellent condition!

“I have the highest regard for Raffaele’s work and would most heartily recommend his technical skills, knowledge, expertise and solid artistic sense to anyone. He is at all times clear, communicative, patient and helpful. No effort was spared in his brilliant mastering of my USG album release last year, and it was a real joy to collaborate with him!”
(avantgarde – neo classic)
“I was collaborating on a duet with a pianist who lives in a different country. We each recorded our individual parts, then sent to Raffaele Pezzella for mastering. He did an incredible job — it sounded like we had recorded it in the same room! Thank you for the professional-level recording.”
(classical – avant-garde)
– “Can’t recommend Raffaele’s work highly enough, great to work with, communicative and the masters he sent me exceeded my expectations completely. An all around great experience”.

– “Raffaele was instrumental in the first “Shelter of Trees” release with a beautiful mastering job. Highly recommended!”
(drone ambient / dark atmospheric)
– “Yes indeed, great work and great to work with. Raffaele was also very helpful with advice, best case scenario to find the best mastering service right at the beginning (But you know, it had to be good – just listen to ETR and of course Sonologyst albums!). Till next time!”
(experimental – noise – dub)
– “I also can say, my experience with Raffaele has always been very clear and timely. Always a pleasure working with you! More to come!”
(electronic – dub – avant pop)
“Redemption was carefully constructed from different parts and recordings of different origines. The way it was mastered ‘life’ brought the whole piece together. Raffaele Pezzella has got a good eye and ear for details and a good feel for the depth of the music. He really opened up the music.”
