Plätlin Mastering – Fabian Tormin

The primary goal of mastering is to enhance the expressiveness of music. The sound character should exert its own impact on all audio systems as well as in the context of other titles. In this final editing stage of audio production, I draw upon more than 15 years of experience as a mastering engineer with the aim of providing every mix the best possible sound.

In my acoustically optimized mastering studio, I rely on delicate analog equipment, which is complemented by digital high-end tools. Every project is different and is treated as such. The artist's intention is my primary focus. Automated 'preset mastering' is not offered.

If you would like to hear how your mix can be improved, simply request a free testmaster! If you are interested, I will give you detailed feedback on your mixes in advance. I look forward to discussing your individual requests and questions in personal contact.

Rates

I do not keep one eye on the clock when mastering in my studio. A project is complete only when the artist is happy with the final master. Therefore, costs are calculated relative to the number of track titles (see calculator). A mix feedback is free of charge if desired and all revisions are included until the artist is 100% satisfied!

Stem-Mastering:

10% per stem (e.g. voc, git, b, dr, synth)

Certified 'Mastered for iTunes':

9,00 € per title

Alternative versions:

You are an unsigned artists and have only a small budget for your project? Then feel free to send me your vision of sound and your mixes online. I then check whether a good way can be found.
