I worked with Philip from Copilco to get my latest track mixed & mastered. This was my first experience with a professional Mixing & Mastering Studio and it was an absolute pleasure to work with Philip. He knows exactly how to handle the audio tracks to get it so that it sounds best. He took in my advice and wishes on big and small tweaks and was able to deliver the exact sound I was looking for. I was impressed by his skills and would definitely recommend him to work on your sounds.
Philip was great to work with.
First of all really clear communication and polite manner. When giving feedback on my mixes before taking them to master he was really specific and it was clear he had given the tracks a thorough listen with a great ear for music/mixing.
The feedback he gave helped me take my tracks to a much higher level and that was even before his mastering which was phenomenal.
Will be a returning customer.
Wirklich ein super Mixing & Mastering Studio. Sehr zu empfehlen. ich habe mit Philip an meinem aktuellen Album gearbeitet und bin sehr zufrieden.
It has been a pleasure working with Philip. I could not be happier with the quality from his mastering and the professionalism he has provided. I look forward to further projects together.
Great to work with Copilco! Philip is a great guy to work with, really straightforward communication. I would recommend to anybody!
Philip is a great guy to work with. Always honest and adapts to your needs and situation. Mastered my track perfectly clean and crisp. Recommended!
Philips strive for an excellent result, his experience and broad knowledge , when it comes to mastering, makes him an ideal candidate for your production. He knows, what he does, and you can hear that!!!
I will continue working with Copilco Productions and can recommend Philip without any reservation
Super zufrieden . Das Mastering meines Tracks hat mich voll und ganz überzeugt. Er nimmt sich die Zeit auch nochmal Verbesserungen mit einzubringen und auf die eigenen Wünsche einzugehen. Schnell und sauber bearbeitet. Werde in Zukunft auf jedenfall öfter mit ihm zusammen Arbeiten.
Philip is a consummate professional and a joy to work with. He spent a lot of time with me patiently talking me through how I could make my mixes sound better to make sure that when they went through mastering they sounded really awesome. If you do get the chance to visit the space as well do take it up because it's really nice hanging out there and talking shop.
I am really happy with the finished product which has been really brought to life by his mastering and something I'm proud to
Timely with responses and feedback. Can take your tracks to that next refined level. I was hesitant on releasing my tracks but after some encouragement and mastering from Coplico it was a no-brainer. He created space in my live mixes and added focus on every element clearly. Highly recommend
Mehr als nur Zufrieden - Begeistert - sowohl fachlich und persönlich ist hier denke ich jeder gut aufgehoben. Das Mastering meines Tracks von Phillip - Copilco Prouctions - hat mich voll und ganz überzeugt - sodass ich in Zukunft definitv eine weitere Zusammenarbeit mit ihm anstreben werde. Er nimmt sich die Zeit für einen und arbeitet dann pünktlich und zuverlässig sobald er von einem den Auftrag zugeschickt bekommt. HIER MACHT IHR DEFINITV NICHTS FALSCH!
I had a couple of tracks (of diverse quality) mixed and mastered at philip‘s and he turned even my worst ones into a respectable as well as playable result. Not only is he an expert in his field, but he also has a distinct knack for artistic preference. When i tell him what i want I get the exact results i envisaged.
Top service and great results !!!
Philip mastered a track that I produced in an attended session at his studio in Berlin and took the sound of the track to the next level. I got to know him as a very friendly, communicative and open person who knows his craft, and delivers fast and reliably. My first choice mastering engineer for the next track!
Philip is a quality engineer, who is very knowledgeable and friendly to work with . The added feedback he give me allowed me to improve my track, and was then presented with a really clean and strong mastering.
I recommend his work for any producer and am sure I will work with him again in the future.
Interview with Copilco Productions
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I mostly do mixing and mastering for artists who produce meaningful electronic music. Some of it is geared towards clubs and DJs, some of it more for personal listening. I always do my best to let my clients' music shine in both worlds. Inside the club as well as outside.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I'm inspired by many different people in our industry. From all time legends like Mick Guzauski, Andrew Scheps and Bob Katz to modern producers and engineers.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I'm working in a professionally treated room (consulted by Jesco Lohan of Acoustics Insider), listening to a pair of KH O300 monitors. My mixing work happens in Cubase, mastering in WaveLab, producing and arrangement mostly in Ableton Live. I'm proudly working digital exclusively because I believe that a fast workflow and 100% recall enhance the end result for my clients.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I take a lot of time to listen to and evaluate my clients' goals and needs before the project starts. I give feedback on the way, help them take their production to the highest level they can reach before it even enters my studio. I have a pretty fast turnover time and I'm sharing my results quickly. I believe in collaboration, so I'm very open to my clients' feedback and will do my best to meet their artistic vision.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: When I listen to a song, I try to distill the story it wants to tell. Then, I apply all my skills, experience, and knowledge to amplify this emotional content to its maximum potential.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Listening. I believe that a shared vision is a very powerful thing, so I do my best to align myself with the direction an artist wants to go. At the same time, clients can always count on me for truly honest feedback.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Electronic music, from techno to house to electronics-influenced indie & pop music.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Make creating music a daily habit. Don't wait for motivation to come to you. You have to chase it.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I'd be thrilled to work with Tale of Us or Woo York because I think I could bring something to the table here.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Very 3D and spacious, yet impactful.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been doing this for more than 10 years now. I used to have a side job as a creative and strategic consultant in a marketing agency, building my studio on the side. But at one point, I just went all in and opened my full-time studio in Berlin.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: A laptop, my RME ADI-2 DAC mastering converter, and a nice pair of headphones. For some fun, I'd also bring my Moog Sub37 ;-)
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Try to open up as much as possible about where you want to go as an artist. I love hearing your story and knowing more about your vision. Tell me what type of productions you love, what you think makes your songs special, and also if there's something you want to express with your music. This stuff matters!
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I always send a detailed requirements and file delivery sheet. In there, I'm asking whether you want your music to sound more open and dynamic or loud and aggressive. A second category is warm and organic vs. analytical and precise. After that, I request some reference tracks of other artists that you think would be appropriate.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: People tend to mystify the whole mixing and mastering thing a bit too much. No, nothing's a dark art. And not all engineers have to be grumpy, geeky people who lack social skills. I'm definitely the opposite of that stereotype ;-)
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: I often get asked if I can provide feedback to what my clients are working on at the moment. I then provide a detailed and honest response that tells them what I like and where I think they can improve. This usually results in a way better mix/master. I do this for free, because I think it's in everybody's best interest.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love being part of an important milestone in somebody else's life. Producing and releasing your own music is a big deal! It's just fantastic to add value to this process.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I will take your music a bit beyond your imagination. It will meet your vision but have a little extra stardust that you haven't thought of. Expect crystal clear communication & a fast turnover. I'm reliable and proud of it.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I love producing and writing with analog synths and drum machines. For mixing and mastering, I stay fully digital because I want reliability, 100% instant recall, and fast workflow.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: For Punk, Metal, and Hardcore: Benedikt Hain (Outback Recordings). An amazing guy, super friendly and he produces incredible results. One of my best producer/engineer-friends.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: International as well as Berlin-based electronic music acts, from Ruede Hagelstein to Acid Pauli to Violent Blondes and many more. Just keep an eye out for my current references.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: At the moment, I'm the mastering engineer responsible for all release of Ruede Hagelstein's and Amin Fallaha's new label "Duat Records". I love this project because we're working on a very special sonic signature here. From the production to mixing and mastering, everything focuses on this shared vision. An amazing project!
