Great mastering engineer!
Fast turnaround and amazing service
This is the 2nd song Pavel has mastered for us and again we are over-the-moon with the results. The sound is flawless, very nicely balanced and as clear as a bell.
Pavel is efficient, intuitive, accurate, communicative and has a good sense of humour too.
We look forward to working with Pavel in the near future because it's 1 less thing to worry about in the creative process of making music.
Pavel is attentive to detail and takes in account all your feedback. Great experience
Super helpful and professional ! Works with you through out the whole process !
Pavel is a great guy to work with!
He pointed out some big problems in our mix that we totally missed, and gave us solutions on how to fix them in a clear and concise way, his communication was always prompt, as was delivery.
Pavel made our track crystal clear, so happy with the results.
