Mastering, a new found love...
Part of the idea of doing everything myself (writing, producing and mixing music) also included the final mastering step. So I started to explore the art of mastering since 2020 and liked it so much that I read all the important books on the subjects, followed some mastering courses, did workshops with acclaimed mastering engineers and invested in the necessary gear. After two years of studying and being obsessed with mastering, I started doing this for others, and I like to take things a step further.
So if you need some masters for streaming, a vinyl master or cd-ddp, just contact me!
I work in a hybrid set-up, combining digital plugins and analog hardware, in a multi-functional home studio (which is also build for creating and mixing music).
