AUDIO ENGINEERING
AND PRODUCTION

MIXING

After production, mixing is the most crucial step towards achieving a polished distribution-ready song. All the separate elements are combined into a single stereo channel, forming 90% of the finished product. A good ear and an acoustically treated studio are essential to ensure a clean, well-balanced result with proper dynamics. Beyond that, a seasoned engineer knows how to enhance the mix to create an exciting stereo soundscape with the right position and presence for each element. A well-done mix is truly the secret to achieving a great master.

The best way for me to get an idea of your project and the work involved is to hear it!

Upload your rough mix(es) to a private Soundcloud playlist (preferred), a personal cloud or a file transfer service.
When you fill out the mixing request form make sure to include your link.

 

Fill out the mixing quote form with the details of your project. I’ll contact you soon with a quote for my work and answer any questions you might have. We’ll discuss your project goals and schedule to ensure timely delivery.

Your audio must be correctly exported from your DAW. Most importantly your files should be:

- well named
- exported at 24-bit minimum
- and audio should never pass -0.1dB on any channel.

To make things simple I've created an easy to follow checklist.

Now that the files are exported it's time to put your hard work into my trusted hands. I’ll provide you with a direct upload link to the studio’s cloud. If you prefer, you can send me a personal link or use a file transfer service.

Once I receive your files I'll go through all the elements to ensure they are free of issues and begin mixing. If the song can be improved by reworking or replacing certain elements I’ll communicate this to you and may ask you to re-export the channel with some or all effects removed.

The first file I send you will be titled "Draft 1". Along with it, I may also send some notes and questions to help further improve your mix. After receiving your feedback I’ll finalize all the remaining details and send you a second draft for approval. Generally, most mixes won't require more than 1 or 2 revisions.

Once you're satisfied with the mix I’ll provide you with an invoice. Payment is available via Paypal, credit card, and bank transfer. After payment is confirmed, you’ll receive a link to download your full mix package which includes:

 

- 24-bit Stereo WAV Pre-Master (32 bit available free of charge upon request)

- 24-bit Stereo WAV Stem Package (all individually processed channels, useful for remix production)

- 320 kbps Stereo MP3 Demo (full song, digitally mastered and ready to be sent to labels)

 

Please note: Payment is made in euros (€). Paypal and credit card payments incur a processing fee (and exchange fee for other currencies). If you're paying in a different currency please let me know and I can offer cost-saving alternative payment options.

Since mixing projects vary in size it's not possible to create a standardized price for this service. The amount of work depends on the number of channels in a project and how many of those channels require special care. To manage this, each project is quoted based on the work involved.

Smaller projects start at a minimum of €80* while bigger projects can range from €200* and up.

Please fill out a quote request and I'll get back to you shortly with your price.
Discounts are possible for multiple projects or when packaged with other services.

*VAT not included.
VAT-exempt payment is possible for customers outside of Germany with a valid VAT-ID (or equivalent Business Registration Number)

MASTERING

The final step before distribution, mastering is designed to finalize your song and establish the best possible sound. The audio is carefully analyzed, existing issues are repaired and then further processing is done to add the fullness, depth and loudness you’d expect from an industry-standard release. Before delivery, each song is checked on multiple reference monitors to ensure they translate well to sound systems of all sizes. Mastered for iTunes (MFiT) and Spotify specific masters are also available to provide the best quality over streaming platforms.

Once I receive your files I'll go through your songs to ensure they are free of issues before mastering. If any changes are required I’ll ask you to make those revisions before finalizing the master. If you wish to provide reference masters they will be used to ensure the same balance and dynamics. Otherwise, I always aim to match masters from top labels in each genre.

If you requested Apple Digital Masters or Spotify specific masters these will be prepared at the same time.

After mastering is finalized I’ll send you an MP3 version that you can test on your sound system. If you would like any changes I’ll gladly revise the master to ensure your satisfaction.

Once you're satisfied I’ll provide you with an invoice. Payment is available via Paypal, credit card, and bank transfer. After payment is confirmed, you’ll receive a link to download your master package which includes (per track):

STEM MASTERING

Artists can often benefit the most from stem mastering; a type of combination between mixing and mastering. The artist provides up to 8 grouped audio channels per song and is delivered a distribution-ready master. The advantage of this service is more control and precision for the engineer resulting in a superior master with only minimal added cost. Just like regular mastering, Mastered for iTunes (MFiT) and Spotify specific masters are also available.

Group your elements for export, stem mastering is done with up to 8 stems (grouped audio busses).
Your audio must also be correctly exported from your DAW. Most importantly your files should be:

- well named
- exported at 24-bit minimum
- and audio should never pass -0.1dB on any channel.

LIVE-SET MASTERING

This specified mastering service is intended for recordings of DJ sets and live shows. The entire performance is balanced and dynamics are controlled while also bringing loudness up to industry standards. Special attention is also paid to fixing common mistakes that often occur in live situations. This translates an “out of the mixer” recording into a more refined listening experience for your fans.

  • How it works
  • Pricing
  • Get started

Fill out the quote form and select the Live-Set Mastering checkbox. If you have a link to your file, please include it with your message. Make sure to include any other details relevant to your project. I’ll contact you to confirm your order and provide you with payment details.

I’ll provide you with a direct upload link to the studio’s cloud. If you prefer, you can send me a personal link or use a file transfer service.

 

For best results, your recording should have a bit depth of at least 16-bits (24 bit preferable) and never pass -0.1dB in volume. Set your recording volume so the loudest peaks register around -6dB for DJ mixes or -12dB for live performance. This provides you with a safe amount of headroom.

 

If your recording is split into multiple files please make sure they are named in chronological order.

Payment is available via Paypal, credit card, and bank transfer.

 

Please note: Payment is made in euros (€). Paypal and credit card payments incur a processing fee (and exchange fee for other currencies). If you're paying in a different currency please let me know and I can offer cost-saving alternative payment options.

Once I receive your recording and payment confirmation I’ll prepare the master and send it back for your approval. If you would like any changes please let me know and I will gladly revise it.

 

If for any reason you aren’t satisfied with the result I will refund your payment.

Live-Set Mastering costs €20* for recordings up to 2 hours long.
For longer recordings, there is an extra charge of €10* per hour.

For live band performances or multi-channel recordings prices may vary, please contact me.

PRODUCTION

Whether you’re looking for the perfect soundtrack for your next campaign or you need to take your composition to the next level, this is the service for you. With efficient project planning and fluent communication, we will work together to turn your concepts into the ultimate dream track. All production is handled in-studio, while bigger projects are managed in combination with a network of talented session musicians and recording engineers, therefore accommodating a wide range of budgets.

  • How it works
  • Pricing
  • Get started

Fill out the quote form with the details of your project. I’ll review your request and get in touch to answer your questions and work out a plan. Based on our communication I’ll be able to provide you with an estimate and delivery date.

Every production varies in size, therefore payment terms are negotiated per project.

 

Payment is available via Paypal, credit card, and bank transfer.

 

Please note: Payment is made in euros (€). Paypal and credit card payments incur a processing fee (and exchange fee for other currencies). If you're paying in a different currency please let me know and I can offer cost-saving alternative payment options.

Throughout the production process, the line of communication will always be open. We will work together to create an overview of your project to make sure you have the right oversight on progress. Creative concepts will be ironed out along with your ultimate targets such as intended labels or demographics. This will help ensure an efficient and effective direction.

 

Once in the studio, I’ll bring your ideas to life and send previews for your feedback. If you’re in the Berlin area we may set up in-studio listening sessions to hash out details. Online listening sessions are also possible over Zoom and Skype.

 

After the song is complete I will finalize the mix and create a demo (a listening version which can be sent to labels for consideration). If you request it, I’ll also create finished masters for your project at this point.

When the project is wrapped up I’ll send you a package that contains a:

 

- Pre-Master

- Demo

- Stem/Remix Pack

- and any other files you have requested, such as vocal mixes, instrumental mixes, etc.

 

All files will be rendered in 24-bit WAV unless you specify otherwise.

If masters are requested they will be delivered in 16 and 24-bit versions along with a 320kbps MP3. Mastered for iTunes (MFiT) and Spotify specific masters are also available.

Since production jobs vary greatly in size, it’s not possible to create a standardized price for this service. Every production quote is based on the work involved and is carefully calculated to ensure quality while working within budget limitations.

Here is a quick breakdown:

Smaller projects start at €200* and can go up to €500*. This range is quoted for producers who have the bulk of production finished but want to take their track to the next level.

For full production, projects start from €500* and up. This can range from in-house productions (start to finish) to more complicated productions involving session musicians and recording studios.
