Get an initial feedback on the mix, unlimited revisions, and a satisfaction guarantee with my mastering service. If you're not happy with the final master, you don't pay anything.
After more than 20 years making electronic music, with releases on many major labels such as Toolroom, dirtybird, Saved, elrow Music, Cr2, Suara, Upon You and many more, I feel it is the right time to offer these services.
I've been touring around the world all these years, so I have a good idea of how a good electronic track should sound like.
With my masterings I always include:
– Mixdown report – I will analyze your premaster and let you know in case there’s something you can improve to get a better mastering.
– Unlimited modifications – my goal is to get the master you want, no matter how many times I have to work on the project.
– Only pay if you're 100% satisfied. You make sure you only spend your money if you are completely happy with my work.
I'm here to help you find the sound you want for your music :-)

Flawless work again. Had Samuel master an indie rock project, to bring his dance sensibilities to the sound, and he killed it, bringing out the best out of the tracks. He also went out of his way to accommodate our requests, coming up with creative solutions to issues while at it. This is the second time working with Samuel and it surely won't be the last.
I recommend Samuel's services. Pays attention to details. Meets agreed delivery times. Services at a very high level. I will certainly work with him again.
Once again it was an absolute pleasure working with Samuel. He is dedicated and very attentive to the artist's vision. Always a great communication and very professional in his way of explaining the work he has done. I can't recommend highly enough working with Samuel ! Thanks again :)
Just had mastered 2 tracks with Samuel, I immediately loved the result ! I strongly recommend working with Samuel, really nice and professional guy, thanks again ! :)
Really great experience working with Samuel. He's a great communicator - lots of details provided to explain his thinking behind the masters, and very open to feedback too. The quality of the masters is top-notch - the tracks sound really great and definitely more than met my vision of how I wanted them to sound. Will definitely work with him again. Recommended for sure.
It was a pleasure to work and collaborate with Samuel. Very talented and meticulous in every detail to provide the best service.
I will definitely work with him again in the future and recommend his service 100%
Really professional, gives you detailed feedback on your mix and immediately found the sound I needed, I can only strongly recommend Samuel !!
My collaboration with Samuel was amazing and the best collaboration I have ever had on Soundbetter. I have learned a lot form him and he is very sincere and honest. But I think the most important thing is that he wants the customer (me in this case) to be happy with the end result and he will continue for you until that is achieved. I've worked with a lot of people in the past, but they often got annoyed when I wanted to make some extra changes. This is not the case with Samuel. This is your guy
It was a great experience working with samuel, the communication was very easy, the work was done fast and with a great quality, always willing to help and open to suggestions and improvements.
Great results. Samuel was very easy to work with, polite and always available. Would definitely recommend!
Really good mixing/mastering engineer for underground dance music, especially Tech House. Samuel is very easy to communicate with - big changes or minor adjustments to the mix are a breeze.
Always a pleasure to work with Samuel. He’s so professional, always gives me quality feedback to make sure the track levels are right before the master and he always delivers promptly and fits into my deadlines.
Samuel was great to work with, he responded to my messages as soon as he could despite the time change and certainly started working on the master for my song very quickly as well. Samuel also nailed it from the first master version he sent me. I really liked the fact that he sent me two versions of the track one with less bass which was great for me to compare. Very happy with the final master and we will be working together again in the future. Thanks again Samuel!
Nuevamente otro trabajo excelente por parte de Samuel. Rapidez y calidad de sonido.
Another amazing mastering job from Samuel. I had a strict deadline to meet and Samuel delivered amazing results on time. Can't wait to send the next track. He really is a pro!
Samuel is great to work with. He gave me exactly the results I was looking for and I can’t wait to work with him again. 10/10 for professionalism and quality.
Very professional producer and engineer. If you are looking to get your dance tracks mixed and mastered and ready for the club sound systems or to be sent to labels- Samuel is the man. Very patient and responsive as well, ready to make multiple changes quickly and so on. Would definitely love to work with him again!
Sam is an amazing mastering engineer. Was helpful from the second I submitted my track, couldn't be happier with the service he provided.
If you're looking to get your tracks mastered by a professional I highly recommend Sam. Thanks again for all your help!

Q: What's your typical work process?
A: As a mixing and mastering engineer, my typical work process involves several key steps to ensure that the final product meets the artist's expectations. Initial consultation: I start by speaking with the artist to understand their goals for the project, their vision, and any specific requirements they have for the final product. Mixdown evaluation report - When mastering, upon receiving your premaster, I will review and analyze it to identify any areas that may benefit from further adjustments or improvements. If needed, I will provide suggestions on how to enhance your mix, resulting in a superior mastering outcome. My goal is to ensure that your final product meets your artistic vision and exceeds your expectations.

I pay close attention to the overall balance and tonal characteristics of the tracks, making adjustments as needed to achieve the desired sound. I use a variety of effects and processing techniques to enhance the overall sound and bring out the best in each individual track. Mastering: I use various techniques to optimize the overall sound of the project, ensuring that it is ready for release. I make sure that the tracks are loud enough and have a good dynamic range and that the overall balance is consistent between tracks. Unlimited revisions - My ultimate goal is to achieve the master that you desire. I understand that the process of mixing and mastering may require multiple revisions to get the desired outcome. I am committed to working with you until you are fully satisfied with the final product, no matter how many revisions are needed.
