3 years schooling with a graduation in sound engineering. After that I worked 4 years in the famous BallSaal-Studios with Peter Schmidt plus some years with the finest mixers & producers Germany has to offer, during which i had the opportunity to listen, learn, experience and incorporate the highest ambitions & standards in audio quality.

With MS Mastering you get the full package from adoption of your files in all usual formats, analysis of the mix in preparation of the desired master, the actual polished enrichment of your mix, single, ep or album and of course the DDP and CD-Master if required.
This is possible in Hamburg and Berlin depending on what suites you the best.
