Max's Mastering got my Song "HEAD UP" to a next lvl. It was a difficult Song with over 50 different (live-)Instruments and Vocals, recorded in all different qualitites. Phone, GoPro, you name it.
What he did was mindblowing. It sounded so good. It actually felt like a crazy Orchestra. Im so grateful and happy to have worked with him and will do it again. 100%. Cheers.
Max is what you can call a professional! Fast, transparent and honest.
I truly recommend him to anyone, who needs a brilliant and fast master.
This dude is my 1st address for mixing or mastering any of my productions!
He is one of a few out there who understands how you want to sound and implement an insanely good mix & master in a ridiculous short amount of time - Max is also such a great human being, what makes it so easy & fun working together!
I am utterly convinced that he does an excellent job.
It's always a pleasure to work with Max. He's great at his job! Very professional and reliable.
Fast, friendly and professional mixing service. This guy knows what he‘s doing. Thumbs up!
