Interview with Audio Mastering Service

  1. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  3. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  4. A: If I can't make your tracks sound better, then I haven't done my job properly and you don't pay!

  5. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  12. A: I don't specialise in any genre of music. I enjoy the variety of work that comes along.

  17. Q: How would you describe your style?
