About Me
.

Hi, I am Daniel, a mastering engineer based in Järna/Sweden. Nice to meet you!

How can I help you?

I will make sure that the message and feeling you want to express with your music come through, sounding as good as possible at the end of the process.

But, there are many others offering mastering services nowadays. Why choose me?

First of all, I’m serious about this. I got one of the best sounding and best equipped rooms in northern Europe.

I do not mix or produce anymore since I focus on being the best mastering engineer I can ever be and those other tasks stop me from reaching that goal.

I master because I genuinely care about making your music sound better. Standing on stages and all of that is a lot of fun, but I prefer being one of the guys in the background who supports you into being the star!

I have several/many live and online audio mastering educations behind me and I constantly continue to learn, teach and improve in all areas of sound and also working on improving the old techniques, etc.

A long time ago, I was a poor musician who couldn’t find a good mastering service for a price I could afford. This experience made me see a hole in the market and added my indie mastering service thanks to that. For a similar price as a “mixing and mastering engineer” who tries to fix your music from his/her bedroom studio, I will do the same for real in a pro mastering studio.

I work with any genre. In my view, a big part of my job is to imagine what the potential listener of this track will look for the most in the music. I then use that as one of the important parameters for the decisions I make. I love working with punk, metal, jazz, pop, trap, dubstep, singer-songwriter, EDM, IDM, synth, industrial, rock, hip hop, rap, dub, reggae, classical, film music, world music and much more.

I work with all levels of experienced artists, labels, producers and mixing engineers. I really don’t mind working with the first tracks made by the kid next door or from one of the biggest in the business. Different challenges and different experiences. I kind of prefer it that way!

Mastering Services
Mastering

I do mastering for most digital platforms, vinyl or CD. The release will be prepared with all meta-data and info which might be needed for your release. Up to 2 free revisions included.

Investment per track, 1-4 tracks, 70 EUR / 75 USD / 700 SEK incl VAT
Investment per track, 5+ tracks, 60 EUR / 60 USD / 600 SEK incl VAT

Indie Mastering

This is a mastering service for those who would like to save a few bucks. Here are the main differences:
* I will not spend as much time on it as I would do on a full master. This may affect the result, but you can still count on a good quality master!
* It may take a longer time for you to get the finished master. This is a low cost, low priority service.
* I will only include one free revision.

Investment depending on the scope of the project. Contact me for more info!

Stem Mastering

With this service, I may be able to improve some details with better precision. I also do have a few different really nice analog and digital summing options, which often add a nice touch! Unless the music was mixed by a pro, we almost always get a better end result with this alternative.

Since my setup is always ready for stem mastering, the cost will only be a tiny increase for this extra service.

Investment per track, 1-4 tracks, 85 EUR / 90 USD / 850 SEK incl VAT
Investment per track, 5+ tracks, 75 EUR / 80 USD / 750 SEK incl VAT

Pod cast / radio / interview enhancement

I can make your pod cast recordings and similar recordings sound more clear and professional by for example enhancing the sound of the voices, removing noises and do some processing to make the recording easier to listen to, which is extra important now that many listens to pod casts when they are going to/from work in noisy environments etc.

Investment depending on the scope of the project. Contact me for more info! Don’t be shy 🙂

Noise Reduction / Audio Cleaning

I can help you with removing unwanted noise, clicks, pops, background sounds etc.

For example, make your recorded seminars or interviews sound better.

Investment depending on the scope of the project. Contact me for more info!

All the gear I use is regularly checked, calibrated and serviced if needed and in great quality. I use high quality cables and a huge power audiophile grade conditioner/filter/superbox for powering up all the most important hardware (simpler conditioners and filters for the rest).
