  1. Review by Jonas Alf

    Amazing work!!! Jan just mastered a track I mixed and he really brought the song to the next level and I still hear the identity of my mix. You just now when you work with professionals.
    Deadline was super tight. No problem at all! I can only recommend this man and his work!

Interview with 21Mastering

  1. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  2. A: Its hybrid, the combination of excellent digital tools and selected hi end analogue gear. But the most important part is room acoustics and my lovely speakers from Kirsch Audio.

  3. Q: What's your typical work process?

  4. A: Listening comes first, always.

  5. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  6. A: I work hard to lift every song to the next possible level.

  7. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  8. A: Feel the music

  9. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  10. A: All kinds. From classical to folk to underground electronic music.

  11. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  12. A: Be sure you are satisfied with the mix, but dont overmix it. Its all about music, not about 'technical right'.

  13. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  14. A: Great music every day.

  15. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  16. A: Im working hard til you are fully satisfied.

  17. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  18. A: I mostly do mastering work and cutting vinyl on-offs (dubplates). If its an interesting project I also do mixing.

  19. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  20. A: Both. Because both are great in their own ways.

  21. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  22. A: Everyone who loves great music and sound and is dedicated enough this extra mile.

  23. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  24. A: Listen carefully and know you speakers. Dont invest more in plug-ins than in speaker and acoustics.

  25. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  26. A: I'm in for about nearly 20 years. Go from producing techno and jungle to rock/pop recordings to classical recordings and now I'm doing mastering exclusive .

  27. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  28. A: My speakers, my DAW and everything else. Thats only three pieces, right? ;) And the acoustic might be very well on that small desert island without any building, I think...

  29. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  30. A: Mastering is just about making loud.
