Stereo Mastering

The most important step for your production is making sure that your production will give the maximum impact on all commercially available sound systems.

Boogie Snail online mastering service makes a difference by being competitive in the land of modern day streaming services. I am aiming at creating an energetic and powerful master without ruining the dynamics.

The difference between Boogie Snail online mastering service compared to others is that I am not using any automated software. Instead, all masters are hand crafted till perfection using nothing more then state of the art analog equipment.

I will make sure that your track is ready for the distribution platforms that you are using and sound great on all speakers.

Mastering for iTunes

I am a "Mastered for iTunes" approved mastering engineer, so this file is made specifically for iTunes upload and meets their standards. 

Stem Mastering

When your mix has got a lot of groove and soul, but still lacks the professional sound, you need the Online Stem Mastering Service. By treating your grouped channels (stems) I will have more influence compared to a normal stereo mastering to lift the sound of your track to a higher level.

The goal of the service is to let your track stand out from your competition.

All processing happens analog and is sampled at hi-res.

With stem mastering, it is our goal to make sure that the vibe and feel of your mix will stay intact while altering the sound of it into a commercially accepted track.


It all starts by requesting a quote. Here, I'll decide if your track is suited for the stereo mastering or sterm mastering service and give you a quote. If you decide to go with my offer, you'll receive a link to upload your files.
