What is also called Mastering, we call Music Enhancement. We do the same thing as traditional mastering. And if needed, a little bit more.
It can be a wise creative decision to let a pair of new ears give your song what you might not expected. If you´re pleased with Odensound´s enhanced version of your mix, then you are charged for the service (70 USD per song). If you choose not to use our mix, then no strings attached.
Our process takes from 30 min up to 1 hour per song. We first print the mix through an analog chain, then we remain in the digital domain for the rest of the process. You choose the desired format of your mix ready for streaming, or a DDP for CD manufacturing.

Robban is a great man to work with. I recorded my second album at Odensound. Everything’s there and you get the help you need. Odensound also lended out the studio pro bono when I needed it for a charity thing. He’s also a very funny guy. Must be said.
Robert Qwarforth and I have collaborated numerous times. I highly recommend his musical qualities and technical skills!
Interview with Odensound
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: To be satisfied with what they are giving me. Then I´ll try to take that further. I´m just an enhancer. So being presented to a song that´s 100% finished production-wise is always the best starting point.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: A Swedish project for the label-side of Odensound. No release date set at the moment.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Stefan Boman.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both. It´s just tools.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: My first solo album "Music for Headphones". I´m the artist/producer/mixer and mastering guy and I learned a ton. I´ve done so many albums, as both musician and as producer/engineer, with many of the top Swedish artists. But that´s working on other people´s songs. Dealing with my own songs was an eye-opener to me.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I always do my best.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: The challenge.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That music, and especially producing and mixing, is about sound. It´s not. It´s all about emotions and feelings.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What they consider the strength of their song is, and what they wish to see happening to the song in the mix.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: My laptop, NS-10s, neve 1073 dpa, a midi keyboard and a pair of Beyer Dynamic headphones.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started playing drums at 3, then keyboard around 9. Became a professional session musician (keyboards, piano) in 1994, a lot of studio work and touring. Also worked as producer and string-arranger. But I wanted to explore and create my own sound as a self-mixing producer, so I designed and built my own studio i central Stockholm.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: My style is probably better defined by my future clients. But I hope they will say "musical".
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Drake. My favorite album is still Thank me Later, but I think he manages time and time again to put his artistic perspective into records that become culture of our time.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Exclude as many options you can think of, then go for the one that comes the most natural.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I aim to produce and mix music that I´m personally interested in, such as the pop of today, hip-hop & r´n b. And why not electronic music, love ambient electronica.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My ability to zoom out, I think.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I can hopefully bring a stronger sense of the same feeling that the songwriters felt when they wrote the song. That´s always the goal.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Create a common vision for the song with the client. The more I know about them, the better. Then, I cannot say that I have one way of working, I just now when a mix is done. I´m not super-fast, I like sleeping on a mix.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: It is a hybrid; Pro Tools HD10 native for mixing & mastering + laptop with Ableton for producing, or just some fun fx. I use a Neotek Elite 32 ch console along with a few outboards that I know will do things that I can´t create ITB. So most digitally, sometimes with an analogue touch. Depends on the music.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Drake & his team with Noah 40 Shebib & Gadget Campbell, Miles Davis, Frank Sinatra, Coldplay, Chris Athens, Calvin Harris, Madonna, Dr. Dre, Rihanna, Brian Eno, The Beatles & George Martin, Neil Young, Jon Hopkins, Clean Bandit, Post Malone, Martin Garrix, Mixed by Ali, Spike Stent, Chris Gehringer, I could go on forever
