About Me
.

Hello, I am Daniel Söderberg, a mastering engineer based in Järna/Sweden.

So, what do I do?

I use one of the finest selections/collections of mastering hardware and software to process your art in a mindful way. I will listen carefully to the music and will then do my best to make sure that the message and feeling you want to express come through, sounding as good as possible at the end of the process.

But, there are a LOT of people offering mastering services nowadays all over the internet. Why choose me?

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

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.

This is my day job and I chose it because this is something that I really love to do. I do not just master on routine. I master because I care about the end result.

I’ve worked with most of the often talked about really good mastering hardware and software and kept all the ones I like the best. I also got several of my favorite units modified in different ways to suit my chain and my sound ideal even more. I use a fantastic technician to regularly service my gear as soon as I find something which isn’t perfect.

I’ve been a poor musician who couldn’t find a good mastering service for a great price, so I did see a hole in the market and added my indie mastering service thanks to that.

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 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

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.

Price per track, 500 SEK / €50 incl VAT

Indie Mastering

This is a mastering service for those who would like to save a few bucks. The main difference is that I will only include one free revision and I will not spend as much time fixing smaller details. I will still use the same gear etc.

Price per track, 325 SEK / €34 incl VAT

Stem Mastering

With this service, I will do the mastering on your stems. I do have a few different really nice analog and digital summing options.

And you know what!? I will not charge you extra to work with stems. Unless the music was mixed by a pro, we almost always get a better end product with this alternative.

Price per track, 500 SEK / €50 incl VAT

Creative Mastering

A lot of people are not looking for the most transparent master possible. Maybe you are one of those who expect the mastering engineer to add some color with all this insanely expensive hardware? This service is for you!
I will always listen to what the artist is looking for with the mastering and also what he/she is trying to express. With this service, I try my best to enhance the feeling and the message of the music by processing it a bit harder than usual. This will not be a remix, I will just add a bit more of my fantastic taste in sound to your music 🙂

Price per track, 500 SEK / €50 incl VAT

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.

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

Audio Processing

I can help you with for example processing your vocal recordings to make them sound clearer and nicer to listen to with some of the best tools available. Same with guitars, drums, bass, synthesizers and what have you. Send me a message if you are interested and I’ll tell you more!

Price 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).
