TOBISONIC MASTERING

Your Music sounds great.

TESTIMONIALS

Puffi

"Tobi is almost surgical in his approach to mastering. He explains clearly what he wants to do and suggests any tweaks he thinks will help. Tobi successfully and gently transformed a slightly wayward mix into a sculptured master release without losing any of the energy or edge. It now plays beautifully on every device and on the radio. Highly recommended!"

Delivering Masters for the Modern Music Industry

Working to the Highest Standard

 

I begin each new project with a blank canvas and my signal chain is tailored specifically to fit each individual project.  Well-judged use of automation allows the master processing to adapt to the changing dynamics and musicality of your work.  No two masters are alike, because no two pieces of music are alike either.

 

At the Highest Quality

To ensure your music has the professional, commercially competitive finish it deserves, I work at 32 Bit Floating Point precision and a sample rate of 96 kHz.  Your audio files will be upsampled using either Wavelab or iZotope RX (I audition both to find the best fit for your music).  I also employ additional oversample options to maximize the fidelity and tonal detail of your music with oversample rates of up 6,144 kHz; making use of applications designed expressly for mastering from top manufacturers such as SPL, Fabfilter, and DMG.

In a Professional Listening Environment for Professional Results. 

The very best in acoustic treatment from Vicoustics, EQ Acoustics, and Hofa in conjunction with Genelec's GLM calibration technology produce a high-end listening environment which, with the precision and flexibility of ADPTR Audio Metric AB, allows me to comprehensively reference your music against the very best releases in your target market.

Your Music Will Sound Great on Every Platform

I use PSP Audio's Industry-leading X-Dither to provide a professional finish for your music.  Every master is extensively auditioned with Nugen Mastercheck to maximize the volume and quality of your release while ensuring your music will sound great on every platform, format, and bandwidth.

Mix Feedback* and Unlimited Recalls

Before mastering begins, and in order to help you get the very most of your mix, I provide extensive mix feedback on a comprehensive range of musical/production elements; broken down into clearly understandable topics from the core mix, to additional instrumentation, dynamics, frequency masking, and fidelity.

Once the 'test master' is delivered, you will also have unlimited recalls.

*Mix Feedback is also available as a stand-alone service.

Stem Mastering Available

Discounts for Independents

One look at my bio will tell you, I'm a big supporter of independent music.  I like to do what I can help out Artists on a budget.

Discount rates are available on a project by project basis.  Contact me directly (masteredbytobi@mailcan.com or use the contact form at the bottom) with a link to the track(s) you need mastered and a serious proposal of what you can afford to pay.

You must include all the tracks you need mastered and, although I do occasionally take royalty share in part payment, your proposal must include a cash amount as well (I do not work for only royalty share).  Do not ask me to work for only a credit.

 

+ The number of projects I can offer at a discounted rate depends on my workload.

+ This is not a budget service. It is my full service at a discount price.
