Lars is professional, attentive, and works hard to make sure your master maximizes its potential. I had a pretty loud/compressed pre-master mix, and he was able to bring up the overall volume without compressing it too much further with some creative processing. I would love to work with Lars again!
It was a great experience working with Lars. He gives you feedback, something very rare nowadays. Excellent communication. But the most important thing is its sound. It sounds awesome on the sound system where I tried it. Surely this mastering will be the first of many with Lars!
Very quick responses, very flexible and great service. He gave the track exactly what it needed to be sent out into the world and the end result was everything I hoped it to be. I would definitely recommend Lars. Look forward to working with him again!

A: See my description
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Personally and Tailored
Q: Can you share one music production tip?

Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Music is all about vibe and feel. Sometimes it’s the vocal that touches me with a good reverb or the other time the groove of the drums or the dark bass that makes me move. Make your music I interesting for the listener!!!
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Best of both worlds. A hybrid setup now days will and get the best out of the music.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Before mastering, I always give free advice if a mix can be improved. This way I can make the music shine even more so the listener will enjoy even better.
