Mastering Mansion is the biggest and most perfect Mastering Room in Europe and the only one in the world built entirely from scratch.
Nick Litwin has 21 years of experience mastering in the UK, Spain and Argentina.
Nick have mastered close to 2000 albums, EPs, singles, vinyl recordings, MFiT, remasters.
He has very happy clients all over the world.

World-Class Audio Mastering for every budget.

In order to avoid any acoustic compromise, we entrusted the design of the ideal room - with zero building restrictions - to one of the best Acoustic Engineers in the globe (Markus Bertram from MB Akustik/Germany) and afterwards we invested in a piece of land that allowed us to build that design with precision. The result: a room with a volume of 220m3 and an area of 52m2, that thanks to its ideal design, unique geometry, big size and customised materials, guarantees a near-perfect behaviour, with a transparency, linearity and spaciality impossible to get at studios made within previously constructed premises, with all its acoustic limitations.

The main goal at Mastering Mansion is to always obtain the maximum possible musicality, expresivity, strenght, dynamics and competitivity on our customer’s music.

We are not a factory of same-pattern-cut masters: we do not classify your music into standard categories.
We believe that every record has its own character and that no song is equal to any other.
What´s best is that you can tell us which is the exact vision through which you conceived each of your songs, and most important, if when you get your master there is anything that you don´t quite like, we will change that without extra charges.
We are here to help you achieve YOUR vision and give your music the best sound.

    Nick Litwin definitivamente sabe lo que hace y lo hace de la mejor manera. Su atención es increíblemente buena y ni hablar de los resultados. Muy recomendable como profesional, seguiré masterizando mis sencillos y mi álbum con él en Mastering Mansion, pues logra el sonido que se necesita y el que imaginaste como artista.

    Nick has become my go-to mastering engineer. After having many of my mixes mastered by some of the biggest names in the mastering world, I can say Nick doesn't only keep up with them, he is better. Simple as that.

    Do yourself, and your tracks, a favor and have nick master your songs. You won't regret it!

    Un trabajo muy superior a lo que me esperaba y muy por encima de otros masters que hice con otros ingenieros.

    Suena cálido, profundo, dinámico y sin embargo con fuerza y volumen!
    Nick consiguió el sonido que tenía en mi cabeza =)

Interview with Nick Litwin/Mastering Mansion

Analog or digital and why?
For most things, ANALOG! Yes, there are a few selected digital processors that MUST be part of every pro Mastering studio and that I love and use... but sound wise, most everything is made using the finest Analog selected pieces - most of them custom modified for us =)
What are you working on at the moment?
I'm usually working at 3 or 4 different projects at a time, as mastering is not a long process (I'm a lucky guy =) In the last few weeks I have done projects or songs for Rubén Blades, Alejandro Sanz, Jorge Salán, Vetusta Morla, Antonio Carmona and Pepe Habichuela, among others.
What type of music do you usually work on?
I work with ALL types of music. It is my view that a great mastering engineer MUST know about music in general and feel confortable working with all genres. This said, most of our clients revolve around popular genres, like Rock, Pop, Electronic, Hip Hop, Latin, Reggae, Funk, R&B and Soul with just a few selected Jazz, Classical, Flamenco and Soundtrack clients.
What do you bring to a song?
Whatever that particular song transmits to me. I never put bricks on a wall. I LISTEN to your music with fresh ears and an open mind, and try to travel whatever the song takes me . That way I can deeply feel what the song tries to tell me and only after I have a clear view of what the song expresses - to me, at least -, I start processing to help the song emphasise the kind of sounds and colours that will make every listener feel what the artist is trying to say in the easiest, clearest and more natural way.
Tell us about your studio setup.
It is an extremely high quality setup, with a lot of options to do every single tasks with very different carachteristics, so we always have the right tool available for any type of processing needed on every kind of song and genre. 4 different analogue mastering EQs (2 of them modified to meet our specs) and the best digital EQ for extreme precision (Weiss EQ1-DYN/LP). 5 different analogue comp/limiters and the best digital dynamic processor (Weiss DS1-MK3) also for extreme precision when needed. The best tape machine simulation, the analogue AnaMod ATS-1 offering us the chance to add that extra touch of depth and warmth so needed on many productions. Kind of the same but in a different flavour is our Blackbox HG-1 tube harmonic generator. And on the digital chain, everything is clocked by the most accurate master clock in the Music Industry, the Antelope Atomic clock, 100.000 times more accurate than a regular crystal clock. All our work is mastered at 96k even if the original file is lower. We upsample using the fantastic Weiss SFC-2 and then use any digital process (if needed) and convert using the state of the art Lavry Gold DA-N5 Quintessence and Lavry Gold AD-122 MX converters at maximum bandwidth, letting all those digital processings occur at maximum quality, with the added depth and precision. EVERY single piece of gear we have is setup in a way that we can use it in normal L-R, stereo, but also in Middle and Side (M&S) mode and parallel mode, allowing us maximum flexibility to be able to do exactly what we feel it's needed, every single time =) Of course, our biggest jewell in the setup, is the near-to-perfection monitoring system, starting with the biggest mastering room in Europe (440m3 of area), built entirely from zero - we built the whole building with the geometry of the design! - and perfectly matched by our linear, high headroom, wide bandwidth monitor setup comprised by Lipinski Grands passive speakers, feed by Lipinski L-401 Monoblock amps and 2 JL Audio Fathom F112 v2 outstanding subwoofer, all crossed overed by the also fantastic JL Audio CR-1 Active Crossover. The room's response at our listening position is a staggering +- 0.5db between 25 Hz and 16 kHz, with +- 1db points in 170 Hz, 2.3 kHz and also 9.1 kHz.... more linear than anything we had heard of, allowing us very subtle modifications that make your sound go from good to outstanding =)
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
I will not talk about musicians, as there are soooo many who inspire me in my life and also in my work. I would only talk about a few professionals that I feel grateful for their friendship and their extensive knowledge, specially Bob Katz and Andreas Balaskas (Germany), but I also have to emphasise Bob Ludwig's work as a source of inspiration for certain aspects of the mastering process.
