Audiomatic Mastering on SoundBetter

After more than two decades as a producer and DJ, Benjamin knows how a track should sound to be rich and forceful on any sound system. He knows all the tricks of the trade and understands your sound and its unique character, be it raw or audiophile.

Find the thing you’re most passionate about and do it as much as possible: That’s been the approach of Benjamin Halfmann since 1999. His international success as a DJ, producer and mastering expert proves that he’s not only passionate about music, but also remarkably good at what he’s doing. It’s the infinite possibilities of Progressive Trance that sparks Benjamin’s creative enthusiasm for electronic grooves. When he starts DJing under the name Audiomatic in 1999 he has no idea that soon he will be an essential part of this relatively new genre himself. Looking back today, three albums, countless single tracks and a busy tour schedule with gigs on 5 continents are the milestones of his career. After hundreds of gigs on hundreds of soundsystems in hundreds of locations, Benjamin has a pretty good idea what a track should sound like – and what not. Together with his long-year experience this makes him as true mastering expert. A custom-build studio with a refined selection of analogue and digital equipment serves as the technological backbone for his mastering service. Since 2011 he’s doing the mastering for most of the releases of the prestigious Progressive Trance label SpinTwist Records, many of these tracks were on heavy rotation all around the world and reached No. 1 rankings in Beatport’s Psytrance charts – and that’s just one prominent example from his long customer list.

    Benni is very pleasant to work with! I contacted him for a trial master and although my track was a work in progress with mixing problems, he managed to do a nice job of it; especially the low end which sounded spectacular!

  4. A: ATC SCM 50 ASL Pro Mytek 8x192 ADDA Bettermaker EQ 232P Bettermaker Mastering Limiter Tegeler Audio Manufaktur Schwerkraftmaschine

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

  6. A: Find the thing you’re most passionate about and do it as much as possible: That’s been the approach of Benjamin Halfmann since 1999. His international success as a DJ, producer and mastering expert proves that he’s not only passionate about music, but also remarkably good at what he’s doing. It’s the infinite possibilities of Progressive Trance that sparks Benjamin’s creative enthusiasm for electronic grooves. When he starts DJing under the name Audiomatic in 1999 he has no idea that soon he will be an essential part of this relatively new genre himself. Looking back today, three albums, countless single tracks and a busy tour schedule with gigs on 5 continents are the milestones of his career. His intense scene involvement and the experience that came with it inspired Audiomatic eventually to take his creative activity to yet another level: Music mastering.

  7. Q: How would you describe your style?

  8. A: Progressive Psy Trance

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

  10. A: All kind of Trance, Techno & House Music

  11. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  12. A: After more than two decades as a producer and DJ, Benjamin knows how a track should sound to be rich and forceful on any sound system. He knows all the tricks of the trade and understands your sound and its unique character, be it raw or audiophile.

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

  14. A: Linear sound is the key when it comes to mastering , it needs to be done in an acoustic environment as neutral as possible. That’s exactly what the studio design by ‘Berlin Accoustic’ provides: An acoustic environment nearly linear, perfect for mastering. Analogue Mastering Gear makes your song stand out and adds a dimension of sound that can’t be achieved in the digital domain. Tubes, especially triodes, add harmonic overtones that please the human ear and improve the presence of individual sounds. The nonlinearities of transformers increase the density of the sound. The bass sounds richer, high frequencies pleasantly round.

  15. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  16. A: Linear Sound is the Backbone for any Good Mastering Studio. It’s essential to listen to your production ‘as it is’ in an acoustic environment that does not alternate the sound that comes from the speakers. In other words, the dimensions and the symmetry of any room have a crucial influence on what you hear. That’s why this studio is designed from the scratch by the renowned company ‘Berlin Acoustics’, starting with the floorplan itself. The concept includes a special sound-absorbing ceiling, a precise placement of the walls, as well as custom-made absorber and diffuser modules. This acoustic design is a modern take on the popular LEDE model (Live End Dead End) that was optimized to meet the spacious conditions of the mastering studio and its individual requirements. The monitors create the actual, audible sound, so they are extremely crucial for the mastering process. This studio is equipped with a set of ATC SCM50ASL Pro speakers, well-known for their unparalleled brilliance in the mids. Their flawless translation made them an industry standard for professionals: If it sounds great on these monitors, it sounds great on any other system, as well. The Mastering Chain combines the organic warmth of analogue studio equipment with the brilliant perfection of digital sound processing. To merge these two worlds into one smooth listening experience, he relies on a state-of-the-art Mytek converter that enables him to capture the unique sound of analogue machines like Bettermaker, Schwerkraftmaschiene and Creamliner. On the digital side of things he is using an extensive UAD plugin collection and a wide range of plugins from a variety of renowned companies.

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

  18. A: Prodigy, Astrix, Freq & Shulman

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

  20. A: Stereo & Stem Mastering
