About Blackwave Studio

Hi! I’m Fabio Palombi, owner and resident engineer at Blackwave Studio. I strongly believe that my mission in this business goes beyond making great sounding records. You and your music need real care, commitment and true passion. The path to a perfect recording begins before hitting the studio, that’s where my 15+ years of experience comes in avoiding the catastrophe and insuring your money is worth the investment. Having great gear is cool, you can take a lot of pictures with it and post it on facebook or instagram, but that doesn’t necessary means that using it on your music will make it shine and put your record on the billboard top ten! In the enormous and magical world of music production there’s only one rule : Get it right at the source!! All the greatest bands in the world have a great and unique sound and behind it there’s always been someone with a clear vision of it. That is a crucial fact and I strongly believe this is exactly what makes you and your music stand above the others. I’m here to ensure you’re making the right step.
At Blackwave there’s everything you need to let your music shine!
