LuZonic on SoundBetter

My goal is to really care about your music, to make the best sounding mix and master you can get. This process will endure until you are satisfied and happy with the result. I am very open minded to all kinds of music and I am sure we will have a great time working together on your tracks.

I am a musician, audio engineer and producer and worked for companies such as Nike and Sky Television. I had an education as an audio engineer and won the mixing contest of one of the biggest and innovative studios in Germany, the HOFA Studios. Early on, I had instrumental classes for piano, organ and violin and have a degree as a church musician and audio engineer. I started mixing for a postpunk project based in Madrid. They hired me, because they knew, that I mixed my own stuff before and after a while, I had the wish to do it in a professional way. So I went to the HOFA college, to learn how to mix like a pro. Later on I took additional classes for mastering, also at HOFA and Ian Shepherd´s course. I mixed a lot of Indie and Gothic bands and built up my studio in Germany which has great acoustics.
I offer mixing and mastering and I am very familiar with the gothic and the alternative scene. Recently I mix and master more and more electronic music (EDM, House) but also have some Progressive Rock experiences. Because of my musical education, I also produce music if I have some time left, that means composing music for film and commercials.

    Markus mixed and mastered the coverversion of "Just Dropped In" from my band DEATH IN ROME (the song is originally by Kenny Rogers). He already mixed and mastered several songs of my band so his knows exactly what I want and he had a big impact of creating the sound of my band, I can highly recommend him.
    you can hear the final version here:

    Markus aka LuZonic has mixed and mastered almost all of the tracks of my band DEATH IN ROME. We did 2 CDs, 1 LP and 1 MC together, along with some small and fast releases. He did a fantastic job and with his almost unlimited patience, he played and still plays a big part of creating the sound of our band. A bright future lays before him (and you'll get great tracks if you book him..)

    We are Fungi & Foe, a two-piece bass/drum duo from Germany, playing experimental rock music. Early 2018 we recorded our white album. We were looking for a decent sound engineer, who knows how to produce and handle our aggressive and punchy tone. Markus mixed and mastered all seven songs professionally. On top of his engineering skills, he is simply a great guy to cooperate with.
