Mixing + Mastering

Tonebox on SoundBetter

Specializing in electronic music, I use a combination of top analog and digital technology with affordable pricing to bring you great results. Multiple of my works have charted on Billboard, and multiple have charted in the top 5 all formats/genres on Bandcamp.

Graduate of Berklee School of Music BPS Music Business

With over a decade of experience and a purpose built studio, my primary speciality has been mastering and mixing for electronic music with a focus on Synthwave (and all it's off-shoots), Chill-wave, electro-house, etc. Further specialities are in delivering a dynamic and warm sounding master that is optimized in loudness for streaming services. I have been the resident mastering engineer for the record label NRW (newretrowave) Records for some time now.

Additional services also include Vinyl Mastering.

Interview with Tonebox

  1. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  2. A: My third full length album and many other projects.

  3. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  4. A: Both, I think it is silly to go 100% either route. Analog puts more soul into the process, but digital (especially for metering and organization) is vital for a modern workflow and ultimately getting the best results.

  5. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  6. A: I will do my best to achieve your desired results. If something falls short in the process, or we hit some sort of technical limitations, I will cover it in detail. I am very attentive, reply fast, and enjoy explaining technicals in detail.

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

  8. A: That I am able to have work flexibility, while being able to truly make people happy with the result of my work. Music is such a personal journey, so being a part of that for clients all around that world is massive.

  9. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  10. A: What reference do you have for the final product? Can you describe what you want out of the finished product?

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

  12. A: Studio electronics Se-80, Korg ms-20, Roland System-8, Korg Radias, Roland Tape Echo

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

  14. A: I started with a love for synthesizers and slowly worked my way into production, with some releases and projects under my belt, I started to work on material for others across multiple genres but with a mostly electronic focus. I then went to Berklee School of Music and received additional training there. After graduating, my client based business grew and I started to work on music full time, and have been ever since.

  15. Q: How would you describe your style?

  16. A: My mixing style is warm, dynamic, and has a emphasis on the low end. I stand by my works and being able to crank up the volume without everything falling to pieces, but rather become more whole.

  17. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  18. A: Floating Points! His workflow and style seem so fluid and authentic that I would love to be in the studio to witness how he pulls everything together (Or even just to see his studio routing).

  19. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  20. A: Less is more, if you really love one sound or section, why not let it shine? if only for a short period. Too many layers and everything can be a mess. Messes aren't always a bad thing in music if you build up to the "mess" dynamically, and then strip it back again.

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

  22. A: My biggest client work is typically Synthwave or Chill-wave tracks, but I have worked on plenty of indie pop music, some RnB / HipHip, and also classical piano. My favorite methods all revolve around balance, and making the low end of tracks hit very hard.

  23. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  24. A: Being opening minded, trying to bring what I think will not only be the best for my client, but to help them execute their vision.

  25. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  26. A: I use a hybrid analog digital system that I have spent years refining to get top quality results.

  27. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  28. A: I mostly do mastering, but I am also selected to do mixing when the artist do not feel confident enough about something or just need a little extra something. With mixing I particularly help to bring out the potential in the drums, and help polish and fit vocals in a mix.
