I have a lot of experience with editing, audio restoration for podcasts. The story is leading, but the sound design really takes the listener into the story.
Mixing and mastering with an ear for detail and taking into account the loudness normalization of streaming services.In addition to the usual mastering tools, I have Orban radio processing tools. By sending your track also through this (analogue) equipment, I can show you how it could sound on an average radio station.
I enjoy working with young makers of music or podcast and I also want to guide the composing or interview process
