  1. Review by Nigel D.

    I recently had the pleasure of working with Frederik for my music mixing and mastering needs. After being dissatisfied with multiple online services and realizing my homestudio was not capable of meeting my needs, I reached out to Frederik, who had just started advertising his services. Being a long-time friend, I had a feeling he would provide a more personal touch, and I was not disappointed.

    Frederik went above and beyond, creating a tailor-made mix & master that exceeded my expectations.

  2. Review by Andrew G.

    Enjoyed working with Frederik! He communicated openly and helped me get my export to have levels that worked best for what we agreed would be a best final product, and then turned around a great master from that export. Very pleased with my experience overall.
