Philip Marsden Music on SoundBetter

Your music deserves to be heard and appreciated at its best. Get a stand out, release-ready master that you're proud of.

I work with ambitious indie artists who want their music to be heard and appreciated at its best. A lot of artists these days are making their music at home. They love producing, mixing and all of the creativity that comes with it, but lack the technical expertise to get that polished, professional master. I spend everyday working collaboratively with artists to give their mix a stand out, release-ready sound that they can be proud of. If you haven’t already, check out the 5-star reviews below.
 
I want you to know that the music you’ve lovingly created is in the hands of somebody who genuinely cares and knows what they’re doing. I’ve seen so many musicians waste money on “big studios” that tear through dozens of masters a day, with little concern for the artist’s vision. I’m here to serve your music attentively and bring your mix to life.

    It was a pleasure working with Philip. He is very friendly and professional, I felt that he really wanted to make my song sound as good as possible. When I'll need mixing&mastering services again, Philip without a doubt will be my first choice.

    I can truly recommend collaboration with Philip. I am very happy with the result - the sound is amazing and Philip addressed all my requests. Also the turnaround time was fantastic - it exceeded my expectations, and Philip was very responsive at all times. His customer orientation is also worth mentioning. He was very helpful and informative from the very beginning providing all the information even prior to being asked, as well as valuable tips.
    I will be happy to use his services in the future

    Philip was great. He reached back to me super quick and was super fast with working on my track – he did a great job, complementing the song I sent him and mastering it to the point I think it is ready for release, now. He even sent a whole package with full information about anything an indie artist might be looking for. Recommended.

    This was my third time working with Philip, and just like the last two - it went swimmingly well and Philip was a pleasure to work with. I'm very happy with the outcome, and plan to keep sending things his way!

    This was my second time working with Philip & this was way more complex an arrangement & significantly more tracks. It was still just as easy to work with him, he is clear and concise, offers feedback and opinions if/when you want that, is very knowledgeable & works very quickly. I also am very detailed and particular with my requests, and sometimes need to hear things in order to go back to how they originally were -Philip accepted that as part of the process. I plan on working with him again!

    Phil is in the process of mastering my third song and I would thoroughly recommend him. He is very professional and his prices are very competitive. He also gives you a timeframe and delivers on time. He offers advice and will tell you if your mix needs any adjustments before mastering. I'm a very happy customer!!

    Philip was recommended to me by my current producer so I decided to use his mastering service for one of my singles. Philip is very efficient and thorough, and communicating well throughout the whole process. He did an excellent job and I am very pleased with his service. I am looking forward to continue using his service for future projects!

    I've had such a positive experience working with Philip, the collaboration and communication we had worked so well and I felt he really understood what I asked for in my mix notes which evolved as the visions went on. I learned a lot from the experience and when I listened to the end result I felt like the sound quality could compete against my favourite artists and this showed me how much of a professional Philip is in the mixing process, also the turn around on the revisions were fast and Philip rose to every challange I gave him with the mix notes. Could not be happier 5/5!

    Philip and I connected through Instagram and I feel SO lucky that we did. I've worked with a wide variety of people trying to get my music to a professional level and Philip was the first one who not only actually delivered exactly as promised, but also for a totally fair price and very fast turnaround. He's so talented at what he does and I can't wait to work with him again.

    First time working with Philip and I would highly recommend him to prospective clients. I used his mastering service. He talked me through my mix and was able to translate my vision to the final master. Very accommodating and extremely easy to work with. I was on a deadline which he was happy to work with and he was reachable through emails at all times. Great engineer! Hope to work with him again soon.

    Philip has done an outstanding job at mixing & mastering two songs for my band. He has an ear for getting a mix on point pretty much first time. I submitted reference mixes as a guide and you can definitely hear the similarities and attention to specific details within sections of the songs. He is very humble and fantastic at communication via email which isn’t always easy when you don’t know who you’re dealing with vice versa. It would be a pleasure to work with you again! Thanks Philip

    I got in touch super last minute (less than 24 hours) asking for Philip to master a track for me. He was so responsive and asked bespoke questions about the track and offered to put in metadata. V important touches for an artist just starting out and not really knowing what to ask for. Will 100% work with Philip in the future.

    I've been fortunate to work with Phil on a number of occasions and can confidently say that he is one of the finest sound engineers and producers I've ever come across. I'm a classical violinist and pianist and together we've recorded everything from a solo violin to a full scale section of stringed instruments. Not only has he proved to have a highly developed ear for sound, but his mastery of the recording process has meant that long sessions have passed smoothly and efficiently. I have no hesitation in highly recommending him for all aspects of recording work and mastering!

Interview with Philip Marsden Music

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

  2. A: Record like there is no mixing and mix like there is no mastering.

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

  4. A: It can be really hard to get across your creative ideas over the internet - make sure you provide some detailed notes on how you want your project to sound and some reference tracks. Also make sure that the provider has a reasonable revisions policy. Aside from that just make sure that your tracks are recorded as well as they possibly can be and that any edits are clean!

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

  6. A: Working with inspiring artists!
