Simon Lancelot on SoundBetter

As a Mastering Engineer, I will be the first true Listener of your project. I will help you reach the sound you desire (and beyond) using my emotional response and technical skills in a great sounding environment. And you might want to try a french guy !

I'm a mastering engineer at Studios Ferber in Paris (one of the oldest and biggest studio in town).

Mastering is what I do 98% of the time (I also make neapolitan pizza but it's an other story) for french and international clients.

I have worked on hundreds of records, please Check my playlist for previous work :

I first started engineering as a love for music, i love listening to it, I love to feel emotion while listening to it and I love discovering new artist. Mastering then became the perfect job for me. People hire me to listen to their music and to help them grow. I'm gifted to be their the first window to the world and to be able to adjust the frame if necessary.

I like to work with people with a vision, I like to help them push bundaries and be part of the journey.
Let me be part of yours !

Feel free to contact me so we could talk about your project, find the right direction and get to work.

I like to receive songs as wav or aiff files (24 or 32f bit, native samplerate of the project).
Delay time is usually between 2 days (single/EP) and 4 days (album or more complexe project).
I offer free revision (as long as we're going forward).

Interview with Simon Lancelot

  1. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  2. A: Both because analog is fun, intuitive and it helps me find the path the song need. Digital is reliable, precise and there is few algos that are very handy.

  3. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  4. A: I get to listen to music all day long, everyday, on beautiful speakers.

  5. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  6. A: Where can I listen to your work ? There is a playlist on spotify/Tidal.. on my profile and IG account. Do you do test masters ? And Yes I do !

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

  8. A: People sometimes confuses mastering engineer and the mixing police. I don't blame people's mix and fix thing, I enhance, I change the perception if it's a bit off but I don't change the mix. Furthermore, I encourage young mixer to take risk, follow their visions and push it as far as they can, I'll be the fence if something goes wrong (it barely never does).

  9. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  10. A: My speaker, my converter & EQ, a decent computer and Hi-speed internet :) I'll buid the room on site !

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

  12. A: I have been doing mastering full time for 3 years now. Before I was a mixing assistant in a big Parisian Studio, doing mastering on the side from home (I started to work in Studios almost 10 years ago).

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

  14. A: Everything from classical to post hardcore but I shine the best with R&B Soul, Hiphop & Electronic music.

  15. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  16. A: I keep myself available for the people working with me, offering an open communication. And I can also make things loud if necessary.

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

  18. A: I don't actually bring anything to a song, I'm just working around it (or frame it) so it could be presented to the world under the best circumstance.

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

  20. A: I like to receive the project as a whole so I could get the global vibe and direction of the project. The previous day, I usually start by putting all the song in sequence matching the level from song to song so my starting point is coherent all along the record (using a small speaker I have on the side). Then I like to work fast because you can only hear a song for the first time once and I have to remember the feeling I had about the song for the whole process to reach the goal I have in mind. While working on aparticular song, I'll always refer to the other songs of the record to make sure it all stays consistent. I like to push things a lil bit while working for the first time on a song, it helps showing to the client the potential of the song and what I can bring with my work. Sometimes I nail it with the first version, other time we need a revision.

  21. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  22. A: I have been building my setup fews years now, my main tools are my speakers and my room. The speakers are PSI A215 and I recently upgrade the acoustic of the room with PSI active Bass Trap AVAA. I like working with both analog and digital tools so I run an hybrid setup with analog hardware and plugins. The chain grows and improves over the years and for now, it's built around a Lavry Gold & a Forssel converter with a KNIF Eksa as my main EQ. The chain is always a bit different from project to project and even from song to song, not every piece of gear fit any music so I try to find the best path possible for song.
