2 ReviewsEndorse Martin Antonsson
The Band Convinced used Martin for mastering an old recording from 2001 that never got the proper love as it deserved. Martin took on the challange and with minimal prerequisites enhanced the songs with 30% by brighten up the overall sounds, giving it some more oumph and power. Martin delivered the work very fast, with high quality and we would highly recommend his work!
I can highly recommend Martin at Studio 5A for mixing and mastering purposes. My band Stone Brigade worked with Martin with our latest release Madman's Paradise, and we are very satisfied with the result! Martin is also a genuinely nice guy and is very easy to work with. We will surely use Studio 5A for recording purposes again.
