    I can’t complain about anything and it’s the first time I don’t have the slightest feeling that I paid way too much money to someone. 100% happy!

    I did some research before I contacted Timo to help me with my production. Too many wannabes out there and I was sick of it to fall for them. If you look up his name you will quickly find lots of serious sources that he is a professional producer and composer. Nothing he says here on this profile is fake. You can absolutely trust him and the work he’s done for me was amazing. He understood what I needed and he delivered within a week. Full quality, easy communication and really cool dude! I will work with Timo again, that’s for sure.

    Timo put his ears and hands on my Podcast and it‘s a day/night result. He even gave advice on how to improve recording quality in the first place. This makes editing and mastering the whole thing a lot easier 👍🏻

    I never understood a few things in music production. Timo explained it to me very well and I can take the next steps now. My work flow has definitely changed.

    by Richard Velsting

    Seriously, I paid him just to have some insights in the music business that I love so much and he’s worked with some big names. As an ambitious artist thinking about the next steps in building a career he told me a lot of important and interesting things about how this industry works. Whenever I’ll have a track to produce or to finish, you will hear from me again Timo. Promised. Thank you mate :-)

    With Timo‘s help I finally learned how to record my vocals properly. It made a big difference.

  26. Review by Victor Baumann
    by Victor Baumann

    I totally had a wrong idea of the term “Ghostproducing”. Timo opened my eyes about it and I kinda feel stupid that I complained about DJs not composing, producing, mixing and mastering all on their own. I simply didn’t know better. I now understand that there’s more to it than just a person paying someone to produce a track for them. Thank you for that and thank you for helping me to get new ideas to finish my track!

    Timo is a hero! And little did I know how many Trance releases he was involved in that I absolutely love. I found out during the conversions with him. He’s not a bullshitter. Truly talented, down to earth and funny. Thank you so much for the engineering help and 100% respect!

    Watching a lot of tutorials on YouTube is great and gets you into things. But having someone answer specific questions personally and in depth is priceless. Found that here and I regret nothing.

  36. Review by Andrew Culham
    by Andrew Culham

    Working on a vocal Trance track for me turned out to be quite a challenge. I needed help to fit in and mix down the vocals properly and Timo absolutely did a great job with that. He added more depth to the whole thing and made it cleaner and crispier. He knows what he’s doing.

  37. Review by Mat Z.
    by Mat Z.

    When I desperately needed help to finalise 3 of my productions, Timo came for the rescue by mixing and mastering them. He even adjusted some of the melody parts that sounded a bit off and added some instruments in the background to make it all deeper and less static. So happy with my tracks now and I can send them to labels now. Thanks a million!

    Always wondered how to reach a certain sound standard in my weak productions. Timo explained it to me in detail, easy understandable and with countless examples. I can work much better now and lost some of the pressure I had before. Brilliant!

    I needed someone to mix and master my podcast. Can’t be happier with how good it sounds now! Many more episodes to come, Timo :-)

    by Stefan M.

    My Techno track was done and I was happy except for the overall atmosphere that was kinda not there at all. Timo helped out with some stunning atmospheric elements that made my track much more alive. The depth of it is killing me now, amazing!

  43. Review by Francis G.
    by Francis G.

    I was working on a Hip Hop track and needed some sounds in it that are often used in the EDM genre. So I found and asked Timo for some help because I don’t know those synths well and he didn’t leave me disappointed. Happy with the result and happy to see he’s not limited to a specific genre.

  44. Review by Emily S.
    by Emily S.

    I love producing and being creative. But I absolutely can’t mix down anything, trust me. It’ll sound like a sponge in a can. So I sent Timo my audio stems to work his magic and all I can say is wow! Every sound is in place now, it all has more power and it sounds clean. That’s skills. Plus: a very nice fella. Thank you Timo.

    What Timo got out of only 12 audio tracks blows my mind. Unreal!

  46. Review by Felix
    by Felix

    I contacted Timo only to ask what he thought about my Deep House production and ended up by changing my way of producing a track almost completely. He pointed out things that I didn't even notice. Really really experienced guy who is happy to share some of his secrets which is not a given these days. His service is worth every penny!

    Timo was a big help with my first official release 3 years ago by giving a lot of advice about arrangement, sound design and mixing. Flawless communication and a very nice guy. Happy to work with him, thumbs up.
