Philip Marsden Music on SoundBetter

I offer a professional mastering service, perfect for independent artists of all genres. With a first class honours degree in Popular Music Production and a great deal of experience picked up from working at multiple studios and with worldwide clients, my aim is to help artists to materialise their visions and nail their sound.

Mastering is the final creative step in the journey of music production. It is the 'final polish' that will take your mix to a commercial level, ready for distribution. The sonic characteristics of your track will be balanced, it will be optimised for playback on all systems and the sound will be made as clear and as punchy as it can be. It is always advisable to use a professional, fresh set of ears at this final stage of record production. Every song is different; by using a real engineer, your music will get the unique attention it deserves, which is simply not possible with automated services.

You will receive a clear and impactful master that respects the creative decisions taken during mixing, complete with all of the file types you need for your distribution plan. If you would like a DDP file or for any ISRC codes to be embedded into your masters, please let me know.

Editing and mixing services are also available, just hit the contact button for a quote.

    Great service from Philip. Prompt to respond and delivers what he says he going to, when he says he's going to. And most importantly, creates a great sound!

    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!

    Absolutely amazing. Very professional and responds promptly and frequently. He mastered my 6 song EP for a very fair price and his work is outstanding. Truly brought my songs to life and made them pop! I will definitely be coming back for any other songs :)

    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!

    This was my first time working with Philip, but had chatted with him extensively prior, and he definitely knew his stuff. The final track was great and the turnaround was incredibly fast. I wouldn't hesitate to work again with him!

    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.

    I would highly recommend working with Philip. Mastered an album for me recently and i couldn't be happier with the work done. Really easy to communicate with and very responsive to requested changes. Already have the next project booked in. Top Work!!!

    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!
