    I originally thought I'd master my indie metal record myself. But after spending such a long time on it I decided to turn to a professional to get the best out of it. I'm very glad I did, because there is no way I could have gotten such a professional, loud, punchy and clear sound on my own.
    I also thought it was very important that Sebastian was experienced in the genre of my music (symphonic).
    I'll be sure to ask for Sebastian's mastering for my second album as well!

    It was great working with Seeb! He took my DIY bedroom metal mix and brought it close to professional sounding. I did not have the separate tracks for all instruments, I only had a single wav file of the mix, but he still did an excellent job with it. It was easy communicating with him about what I wanted and getting professional feedback about how things are done. He was also very helpful about giving advice which will surely help me through future projects. Much recommended!

    I did stem-mastering with Sebastian on my latest record which was a long and very involved heavy metal opus. His work has exceeded my greatest expectations. He took my home recording which just sounded decent, and made it sound totally professional. Seeb was able to correct all the imperfections of my various tracks and add a whole new dimension of color and clarity. Working with Sebastian was a great pleasure. He is extremely professional and the communication was excellent. Highly recommended!

    Sebastian was fantastic. He was clear and honest about things that bothered him. That allowed me to go back and re-imagine some things and achieve a much better end result. I've heard a lot of really smart people say that hiring a mastering engineer isn't really about getting the final eq and compression. It's about getting your work in front of a professional who is truly objective and will challenge your decisions when they find any chinks in the armor. Sebastian nailed that role.

    Seeb has done a stellar job stem mastering our track. He's a truly remarkable and skilled mastering engineer and we would recommend him and Greenman Studios to anyone looking for a perfectly balanced, hard-hitting, and refined heavy metal sound. An immense pleasure to work with and not afraid to go above and beyond to get the best final product possible. We'll definitely be reaching out to him on future projects.

    Sebastian is awesome to work with, super professional and very timely with all messages/requests/responses. He really knows his stuff which very evident in his own musical projects for anyone that knows the genre. If he can make a couple of hacks like us sound good just imagine what he can do for you!

    There are thousands of musicians in the world - or at least those who think they are - but there are few who "understand" a song and know exactly what to edit. Seeb does his job absolutely brilliant! Great guy - anytime again!

    Seeb is an enthusiastic professional & specialist in his genre, with alot of attention to detail. I successfully worked together with him on several projects over the past years, like his own band Orden Ogan. He is a very nice, relaxed & humorous guy, so we became friends very quickly. :) I can absolutely recommend working with him, you won't be disappointed!

    Seeb recorded, mixed and mastered the first album of my band Cremisi, genre: symphonic epic metal. The sound was veeery punchy, the drums were killer, and he was totally available and helpful with us, he gave us a lot of advices, since for us it was the very first big production. I would recommend him if you want a typical german heavy sound ;)

    I became aware of Sebastian "Seeb" Levermann through his extremely high-quality publications, both by "Ordan Ogan" and other well-known bands ( e.g Rhapsody of Fire etc. )
    A long-term collaboration has developed that has always exceeded my expectations for music production. Sebastian works at international top-level and fulfills highest industry standards to mordern music production. He´s a good co-producer always at your side with good advice. His hearing and arrangement skills are killer. Always had very good times in his studio and got best results. Highly recommended Studio!

    As one of THE producers of nowaday's Power Metal landscape, I was curious about his take on a rather Extreme Progressive Metal album that keeps throwing new elements at the listener every few seconds. The result was definitely beyond expectations, leading to a balanced yet massive sound that brought everything together in an elegant way. Similarly, the communication was equally professional and easy-going, so asking him for another collaboration on the next album was a no-brainer.

    Based on: drum recordings, mixing and mastering on Mindpatrol's "Vulture City"

Interview with SEBASTIAN "SEEB" LEVERMANN

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: no the one special project, but especially with stem-mastering you can achieve amazing results, even with a small budget, and make an average recording/mix sound fantastic. so there are quite a few projects that went from „ok“ to „awesome“ - and that’s great and super rewarding

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

  4. A: all mixes/masterings I work on are my business card as well - so we have the same goal: make the best sounding record we possibly can!

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

  6. A: I just love to make great sounding records.

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

  8. A: just get in touch! :-)

  12. A: KoRn, for obvious reasons

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

  14. A: don’t overdo editing and kill all the vibe.

  15. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  17. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  18. A: it depends on what it needs or if it needs anything at all. if the song is great I will just try to make it sound great, even when working in the producer role. many artists have a clear vision of what they want - in that case I will just help them to achieve their goal. I will always make suggestions and if needed we can tear the whole song apart and put it together again in the best and most improved way possible

  28. A: clean, transparent, classy, modern yet natural, powerful, punchy

  34. A: Andy Sneap, Colin Richardson, Chris Lord-Alge

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

  36. A: producing, mixing and mastering. I love to do all of that, but especially love stem-masterings because you can often improve the original mix to a crazy extent at a relatively low cost.
