IN THIS STORY OF YOURS, YOU ARE THE HERO AND I'M YOUR SIDEKICK. I HAVE YOU COVERED SO THAT YOU AND YOUR SONG CAN SHINE THE MOST.
I am located in the exciting city of Berlin and have made a name for myself as a great solution that fits the budget, takes special care and is all about the producers/artists creations.
Anti Logic was foundedout of necessity in mid 2009 when I (Robert) started my music label Glitchy.Tonic.Records and figured that I was in need of good but affordable mastering. I was mastering my own and a few other artists’ productions before that time and realized that I do it really well. Fast forward and it turns out that it became a successful business and a very high quality service which is leaving its clients very satisfied. Visit out review section for proof :)
I know very well that many artists and labels are looking for great and affordable mastering, so I made that my premise…
TRY ME OUT AND GET A FREE MASTERING SAMPLE OF YOUR SONG.
At first let me say that I am experienced in mastering for Vinyl and Tape. I also create the necessary formats for CD replication.
I am the "in house" mastering solution for a few labels including Glitchy.Tonic.Records, Techgnosis Records, Pistolero Rercords, Erebos Records, Electric Power Pole Records, Recursive and many others. Anti-Logic has also worked for Jaira Records, Insonitus Records, Maia Brasil Records, Atomes, Hypnotic Instincts and more.
I have also polished tracks from artists like Ben Rama, Minimal Criminal, Sensient, Hypogeo, Emorine, Kromagon, Dharana, Luis M, MNGRM and many many more of that electronic music scene. While those are all electronic music artists, I am are also working with bands as well as with singer song writers.
I have mastered well over 500 albums/EPs up until mid 2019 and will continue to convince my clients as well as you !
HIGH END AFFORDABLE
"In this story of yours, you are the hero and I am your sidekick. I have you covered so that your song can shine."
These prices are a little lower than market standard, that is because I love to work with independent artists, producers and labels and I want to be affordable to exactly those, while being a high end operation.
You can hire me through Soundbetter, in case you feel safer with a “middleman”, for example in terms of payment. Just click Hire Me.
- 30€ per stereo sum mastering
- 5€ per additional master with a different setting/loudness
(for example: one version for a CD or digital download release, one for streaming platforms)
- 60€ stem mastering (multiple stems)
- 15€ DDPimage for CD production
- free/charity releases can get a discount, open for negotiation
…AND WHY WOULD I NEED A SECOND MASTER VERSION?
Streaming platforms are each using their own loudness algorithms to equal out perceived loudness of their complete music catalog. Listeners can then have a more “homogeneous” listening experience with somewhat equally loud songs throughout the complete music catalog.
Loud songs very likely to get turned down in level, quieter songs could potentially get brought up in level. The latter will involve some sort of limiting device to avoid clipping and I' assume we’d rather avoid that.
That’s why it can be important to create different master versions with a fitting loudness profile for CD/download shop releases and streaming
