I’ve been using Paul for mastering since 2010. From his gorgeous analog chain to his pristine acoustic treated room, Paul’s set up is nothing but world class!
Best thing about Paul is he masters for the song and not for his ego.
I highly recommend Paul for mastering for any type of genre. He can do it all.
Simply the BEST Mastering Engineer.
In the past I used a lot of mastering engineers, Paul was the first to offer feedback on my mix and explained how some basic tweaks in the mix would help the master. He is extremely skilled, passionate and he has supersonic hearing (seriously).
As a songwriter, producer and mixing engineer, I spend ample time perfecting mixes (to my ears), so I don't want someone to just do a job I want the best.
If you want the best then Paul @ Viking Lounge Mastering is your man. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
Best of the best. Paul has unparalleled knowledge and application in all things audio. His mastering skills are up there with the very best on the planet. It’s often hard to believe your ears when listening back, the tracks go to another level. Has been making me sound better for years, accommodating to all of my requests, can’t recommend highly enough.
