  3. Review by Allison Mareek

    Joseph is a true gem and it was an absolute pleasure working with him!
    Super communicative from his first message, he sent detailed mastering notes, explained his process along the way, and took care of as many small edits as I needed to make sure my track sounded exactly the way I needed it to! He also nailed everything I asked him to change, every time 👌🏼
    I 100% recommend working with him as I certainly will many more times in the near future.
    Thanks again Joseph!

  4. Review by GhostEyes

    Freeman nailed the master pretty much in the first go around. He brought all the minor details and parts of the song out and it sounds amazing. He is also very quick with communication and explaining in detail what he did to the song during his process. Definitely recommend.

  5. Review by Milan G.

    Joseph has an amazing pro-active attitude towards perfecting what you have in mind

  6. Review by Erik Jonasson

    Joseph gave me great support on the mix for five of my songs. His feedback was clear and spot on. He also helped me to do the mastering of these songs and also here de delivered in style!

    Joseph is an incredible professional with a kind, collaborative, and expert approach. We worked on one song together. He provided good and helpful feedback at each step. He clearly understood everything I wanted from the song and delivered a beautiful product. I would work with him again in a heartbeat. Thank you, Joseph!

  8. Review by Erik J.

    Joseph helped me out with a mix for a song and I am very satisfied with the result. He gave detailed feedback regarding the changes he did and the communication was super smooth. I will continue to work with Joseph on an upcoming project and I would recommend other people to do so as well!

  9. Review by Luca B.

    A legit five stars!

    Joseph is a real pro with great communication and great skills. My song landed in the "singer-songwriter" realm and he knocked it out of the park with some tasteful choices. Revisions were made in a timely fashion and only took us a couple to get the track perfect.

    A consummate pro

  10. Review by Nancy D.

    Joseph is the best! Really great person who makes the work fun. Great communicator, project manager and audio production skills. Joseph is forever one of my go-to producers.

  11. Review by Benjamin Hull

    Joseph did an incredible job mastering a 4-song EP that I had mixed. What I really liked about this project was that we had to do some work to get to the perfect masters, but it really showed me Joseph's willingness to listen and understand what I was asking him to do. Initially he gave me masters that were good, but not quite what I was looking for in terms of the style and focus of the music. With some conversation and a few revisions we ended up with masters that were, in my opinion, the best versions of these songs. And the artist was exceedingly happy which is what matters most! :)

    Another great round of mastering from Joseph, this was our second time working with him. We were late on mixing and up against a tight deadline to submit for streaming and Jospeh was able to work with us on a quick turnaround and a great end result!

    Joseph was a pleasure to work with. His attention to detail, specificity, and timely communication were second to none! Can't wait to work with him again.

  14. Review by Jesse Grisham

    I just used Joseph on an EP and I was very impressed with his professionalism, communication, and the quality of his work. His feedback and process were helpful, and everything went very smoothly. On top of all that, he's a very personable dude.10/10

    Third time working with Joseph, and this guy does not disappoint. The value for the price is unparalleled as you’re getting both mastering and years of experience. 10/10.

    by Michael Hitchcock

    Fast, clear, exactly what the client wanted and went above and beyond to provide a breakdown of his process. 10/10 will be using Freeman Mastering again.

  17. Review by Andrew Raphael

    This was the first time I used Joseph on a production and it certainly won't be the last. He is super friendly, approachable and punctual in his delivery. His master was easily the best I have had for one of my projects and his detailed pdf describing his process and the changes he made was invaluable. Both myself and the band I was working with had no suggestions for alterations as it was perfect first time. I look forward to working with Joseph on future projects.

  18. Review by Anthony Music First Production

    Joe is a top notch mastering engineer. After a single revision, he nailed exactly what we were going for. He paid extra attention to detail and elevated my mix. Great communication and very responsive. Highly recommend Freeman mastering!

  19. Review by Tyler Gill
    by Tyler Gill

    Working with Joseph is an absolute pleasure. His bio sums it up perfectly: High end results, low key dude. His attention to detail, reception to edits and revisions, along with his own creative inputs make working with him such a fun and relaxed experience. I can’t recommend him enough. You will NOT be disappointed.

    by The Third Man

    We just wrapped an album with Joseph and couldn't be more pleased with the result. He guided us through his process and helped us communicate our vision. In addition, he perfectly understood our feedback and nailed the sound we we're after in one revision. On top of that, he is an excellent communicator and he works fast. I hope we have more work for him soon.

Interview with Freeman Mastering

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

  2. A: That mastering is just about making it louder. That's definitely a component of the process, but it's more so making listening critically and making dozens of micro adjustments that ensure the track translates on all listening systems.

  3. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  4. A: Communication is key. If you don't feel like the mastering engineer, or anyone you hire remotely to work on your music, doesn't communicate clearly and effectively, doesn't manage expectations well, and isn't transparent about their process, that's a big red flag.

  5. Q: How would you describe your style?

  6. A: Fun! Mastering music full time is a dream come true, I bring joy and excitement to every project I work on. If you're passionate about the song, so am I!

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

  8. A: I look to start every collaboration with a conversation - I want to know what your production goals are and how you hear the song in your head.

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

  10. A: Never cut corners during the recording process. So often artists do a haphazard job recording the tune and hope that it'll all come together during mixing. Garbage in, garbage out. During production, after you finish recording anything, constantly ask yourself - "If this was released pretty much as is, no mixing, would I be happy with it?". That's how high the bar should be.

  11. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  12. A: Communication. More than my technical chops, I know how to talk about music, production, songwriting, and mixing.

  13. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  14. A: Two of my favorite musician/producers are Sufjan Stevens and Casey Crescenzo of The Dear Hunter - I love their work and admire how hands-on they are with the process. They have a clear idea of what they want out of production before they even begin, but aren't afraid to experiment if they're inspired.

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

  16. A: Most frequently I mix music, usually anything that falls under the indie/singersongwriter umbrella (indie rock, alt, singersongwriter).
