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 an audio production, I return to 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 main focus. Automated 'preset mastering' is not offered.

If you would like to hear how your mix can be improve, simply ask for a free testmaster! If you are interested, I will give you a feedback on your mixes in advance. I am pleased to discuss your individual sound vision and open questions in personal contact.

Rates

I do not have one eye on the clock throughout the mastering process, instead, a project is only complete when the artist is happy with the final results. Therefore costs are calculated relative to the number of track titles.

No VAT is added to the price. A mix feedback is free of charge if desired and all revisions are included up to 100% satisfaction!

Stem-Mastering:

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

Certified 'Mastered for iTunes':

+9,00 € per title

Alternative versions:

10% per title (e.g. Spotify, vinyl, radio edit)

DDP-Image:

25,00 € per CD

Budget mastering:

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.
