For more than 40 years, Fonoprint Studios has been providing recording and mastering services to local and international artists such as Zucchero, Andrea Bocelli, Laura Pausini, Brian May, Mariah Carey, Eros Ramazzotti and Luciano Pavarotti.

Located in the heart of Bologna and housed within a 15th century monastery, Fonoprint offers two recording studios, two mastering suites and video editing and authoring facilities.

Recently, the facility has upgraded its mastering suites to incorporate two SADiE 6 systems, supplied by Mauro Piatti, head of Prism Sound/SADiE’s Italian distributor TEDES.

Senior sound engineer Maurizio Biancani (pictured top) says Fonoprint has been a SADiE user for many years and has upgraded its systems with every new iteration of the mastering and editing software.

Upgrading to SADiE 6 has allowed Fonoprint to turn projects around with much greater speed, and significantly improved accuracy.

Biancani says: “SADiE is one of the fastest and most accurate editing systems on the market and its power, efficiency and effective controls are all perfectly embodied in this latest software release. SADiE 6 allows us to swiftly and safely navigate the complex post-production phase. My staff rely on it because it is rapid and reliable, as well as being perfectly blended into our operational pipeline.”



New mastering suite at Abbey Road Studios

Abbey Road Studios has expanded its mastering facilities, adding former Metropolis mastering engineer Miles Showell to its roster. The expansion represents a significant investment following Universal Music’s purchase of the studios as part of last year’s EMI deal.
