    The Mixmaster mastered one of my tracks and the sound quality of the track improved enormously. Furthermore it has been a pleasure working with him. Everything was finished in the agreed time and he also listened well to how I wanted the track to sound like.

    De MixMeester mastered one of my tracks some time ago, and I was very happy with the result. He has great ears, and he was a pleasure to work with! I will definitely work with him again if I need some professional mastering.

Interview with De MixMeester | The MixMaster

  1. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  2. A: Mastering

  3. Q: What's your typical work process?

  4. A: First audition of supplied mix, analyzing mix and detecting potential issues, determining necessary changes on mixing side, after receiving new mix a quick check, no further issues; start of the mastering session

  5. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  6. A: Every engineer has his or her own way of working. My signature is not focussed on power alone. Although very important, I tend to focus on depth, stereo-imaging and my take on balancing out the frequency spectrum just as much.

  7. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  8. A: Listening and analyzing. Without that it's impossible to achieve the best possible result.

  9. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  10. A: All kinds of electronic music. I have worked on pop/rock/metal projects as well. I'm looking to work on as many types of music as I can!

  11. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  12. A: Keep your bit-rates up! 24bit audio has nearly unlimited natural headroom, 16 does not. Record, sample and mix your tracks at at least 24bit and supply it to the mastering engineer like that.

  13. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  14. A: I'm a 13 year experienced audio-engineer. I finished a certified audio-engineering course in 2002. At first I was active in Live-sound and gradually started producing, mixing and mastering music. Between 2004 and 2008 I attended college at the 'Rockacademy' in Tilburg, Netherlands. I studied music production, DJ-ing and music business. In 2009 I founded my company 'De MixMeester' and started teaching a lot and doing in-store demo's with production gear as well.

  15. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  16. A: Check as many examples as you can, preferably on a good quality system. Compare them and try to focus on the details of the sound, instead of the type of music. Ask yourself; is it only louder or is there more going on?

  17. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  18. A: What reference tracks or artists can I use as guide-material? Do you have a deadline?

  19. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  20. A: That mastering fixes everything and can polish a turd...lol Mastering can make a great mix that much better. It can not make a bad mix great.

  21. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  22. A: Average turnaround time is 48-72 hours. For an extra fee of $10 you're guaranteed a turnaround of 24-36 hours.

  23. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  24. A: Analog in production/recording, because of character and depth. Digital in mixing/mastering, because of logistics and shortness of funding :) Ideally; a choice mix of both.

  25. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  26. A: 'Folie A Deux' Upcoming EP | Restoring badly recorded interview | First track of my new 'Ampwrecker' EP

  • New Mastering ExampleAug 06, 2015

    The first of two new mastering examples is online. The song is by 'Folie a Deux' and is called 'Castro Castro'. As with all my examples, there's a dry mix-snippet first and a wet master-snippet afterwards. I hope you like it! Second one coming soon.

    Just finished mastering two tracks for a Dutch Techno-duo, called Folie a Deux. Nice underground Techno stuff.
