Nestled in the Tuscan Chianti countryside, Platinum Studio is located inside a typical perfectly renovated farmhouse.
Sound Sound Service in 1997 had already taken care of the first version of the studio that ran for two decades. In 2016 Diego Calvetti, driven by the need for new technologies and the desire to have a more professional work environment, decided to bring the study to another level.
The new Platinum Studio was the protagonist of the cover of May 2017 of the major English magazine Resolution.
The control room was made in the old tool shed, it has an ultramodern design, in contrast to the style of the building, and has a state-of-the-art instrumentation.
A very large, bright living room, with live and natural acoustics, is used both as a secondary control room and for the recording of drums, wind instruments and string instruments sections.
A Vocal Booth between the two main rooms is perfect for recording voices and guitars.
Diego Calvetti began his extensive work as a producer, composer and lyricist in 1997 and has been writing for 20 years for Warner Chapel and for the major Italian record companies. Calvetti has also conducted at the Sanremo Music Festival and even been a vocal coach on the fifth edition of X–Factor in Italy
In 1998 he started working with Lapo Consortini, guitarist, arranger and engineer, now his principal collaborator.
