In my professional, fully equipped post-production studio Develop Device I mainly specialize in modern rock and metal music. I like to experiment and try to avoid stereotypes. Not only can I professionally mix and master your recordings, I can also help you with music post-production, to add energy and atmosphere to your songs and fill in the blanks if necessary. All within the price you pay for mixing and mastering.
Step 1 | We share raw tracks
We will share the files and discuss your project - What sound do you like and what are your goals.
Step 2 | Mixing & mastering process
I will lock the doors to my studio and work on developing your ideas.
Step 3 | The work is done
You will receive a link to your song and you will feel great.
Have you recorded your guitars and bass tracks with Di signals? I'll run it through some of the hardware units that are an integral part of my studio.
I love drums. I have been an active drummer for 20 years. For the last 10 years I have been exclusively specializing in MIDI drum production. If you want a drum track that is indistinguishable from "real acoustic" tracks, Develop Device is the way to go.
Preparing files for mixing and mastering
I accept any major DAW projects or consolidated files with zero starts. Please send them in whatever source format you’ve been using, do not convert the sample rate or bit depth. Make sure you record in 24 bit or higher. And always include a monitor/rough mix! It doesn’t matter how bad it sounds. It’s for me only to know that the files are in sync and that nothing’s missing.

Let's talk about 'The Elephant in the Room'
As much as everyone would like to, recorded tracks are not always ideal for mixing. That's why I always need to see and hear the tracks I'll potentially be working with before starting any work (and your payment for mixing and mastering).
If you are not sure if you are doing everything right, you don't want to waste your time trial and error and prefer to get professional advice, for a small fee, I will give you comprehensive advice on achieving great results.
Pre-recording consultation: €59 EUR**
1 song mixed and mastered - €199 EUR
Full album (8 songs or more) - fixed price €1299 EUR*
*In case you have 8 or more songs for mixing and mastering, the price is fixed and does not increase anymore. So you have a clear idea of how much you will pay immediately.
**The roughly one-hour consultation will be in text form and will include an expert assessment of your tracks (what is good, what is bad) and practical tips on how to improve and achieve a satisfactory result with the gear you already have.
