Feedbacks

I have been working with Niels since 2013. At the beginning in the course of my band activities. Later, when I started my side project "Chris Maragoth", it was immediately clear to me that I can also rely on Niels for this project. You can always rely on him and his mixes are always exactly as I imagined. He also has always great ideas and feedback for me in terms of songwriting or getting the icing on the cake in the arrangement.

Chris Maragoth

Niels always spared no effort to make the work perfect and was passionate about the project, which is crucial for me as a musician. I am very happy with our results and can only enthusiastically recommend him. 

Better Together

Band (Paderborn, Germany)

The production was simply uncomplicated and problem-free, starting with the preparations and ending with the post-processing. The same applies to the correspondence by mail or phone. With Niels we always had a very competent and sympathetic contact person at our side. We can only warmly recommend working with Niels.

FAQ

Request & offer

I would like to submit the best possible offer to you as my customer. For this, I have to sift through the data in advance and assess how long I need for the implementation of your wishes and ideas. So you only pay for the service that really accrues and not some flat rate, which may not even apply to your project.

Communication is very important for goal-oriented processing. Many things can be clarified quickly and easily by email. This way, you as the customer and I as your audio engineer always have the correspondence in written format. Sometimes, however, it simply requires a conversation before, during or even after the production. Please understand that I cannot offer 24/7 telephone support. Therefore I like to arrange telephone appointments by mail.

Soon there will be the possibility for Skype or FaceTime contacts, which can be used especially for international customers.

Communication via Facebook / Instagram: In order to keep a targeted overview of the communication with you, the written exchange will take place exclusively by email. I will always answer questions on social media with the request to official contact me by mail

  • Time schedule
  • Notes on subsequent processing
  • Price & payment information

You will receive your individual offer as PDF by e-mail

Definitely! For new customers I think it makes sense to start with a first song and see if all parties are satisfied with the result. If this is the case, further songs or the rest of the album can also be commissioned at short notice.

I will gladly make you an offer for a complete album mix. But as well with only one song, I look through the material in advance and make you an individual offer. You get a complete price for an album and depending on the number of songs also attractive conditions.

Job order

The turnaround time is highly dependent on the order volume and the expected final deadline.

  • A single song mix or mastering job is usually completed within 7 days.
  • An EP or album production requires a longer turnaround time.
  • Individual editing jobs can usually be brought in or brought forward at short notice. 

No, this is not mandatory, but it can be very helpful to understand your ideas, your wishes and where you want to go with your sound and mix. Sometimes a sound reference can help to get there faster.

If you’re not sure where to go with the final mix sound, that’s not a problem. You can be sure that I will put all my experience into your mix to get the best result for the song.

Depending on the order volume, a deposit is required before processing. Before sending the final data you will receive the final invoice.
A data transfer will take place immediately after receipt of payment of the full invoice amount.

Payment can be made by bank transfer, credit card or via PayPal.

Files informations

For the preparation of your personal offer and a quick processing it is more than helpful if the data are sent prepared in the way given here. You can also download the information as PDF here.

The data exchange can be done in the following way

  • If you have a Dropbox yourself, you share a Dropbox folder with me.
  • You use the upload link to my Dropbox in the contact form
  • You send me a download link (for up to 2GB you can use wetransfer.com for free)

At any time your data are safe with me! Your traces will not be used for any other purpose than for the sighting, for the preparation of the offer or for the order processing.

If it comes to an order, your tracks and the final mix are stored by me for max. 1 year, so that you can fall back on it again in case of a later processing. Afterwards the data will be deleted by me.

In case of rejected offers, the tracks will be deleted immediately.

Explanations

Mixing

Your individual tracks are processed as required using filter, EQ, dynamics and saturation tools and combined to form a cohesive sound structure. The basic level settings, the automation of volume levels, the spatial arrangement and also the refinement by means of modulating effects are very creative processes and require experience and a feel for the right application in the respective song. All these steps are be implemented in accordance with your wishes and ideas as artist.

Mastering

The entire mastering process includes various steps such as the final dynamics, EQ, saturation and sound image processing. Especially if you want to release an EP or an album with several songs, then these should be tuned to each other in the mastering process. This is the only way to achieve a sonic and “round” listening experience with your complete work of art. And of course the loudness (LUFS), especially for the streaming services and download platforms, is an important factor that is adjusted to the respective requirements in the final process. 
With a single mix from me, you always get a final track that is “loud enough” and meets the current requirement (LUFS) of the streaming services and download platforms. In addition, you also get a version without this “loudness”, so that you can include your song in a complete album afterwards if necessary and this can be mastered independently.

The streaming services such as Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon Prime Music, Tidal, etc. have certain specifications for the audio formats and for the loudness of uploaded audio files. For each project, care is taken to ensure that all of these specifications are met.

“Radio-ready” is often used to indicate that the final mix can compete with professional radio productions. Often it’s about loudness, clarity, punch, pressure, warmth…and which classic statements you like to take for it.

After the first processing of your order, you will receive the first final version. And certainly it can be that you would like to have a modification. Maybe the kick drum is a bit too loud and the guitars a bit too far in the foreground. Now, after your feedback, the first “correction” or first revision takes place. After this revision and a quieter kick and quieter guitars, maybe the bass will now push itself a bit, which was not so noticeable before. Or maybe another band member has another change request. So the second revision can take place.

And two revisions are included in every order. Experience has shown that these two possible revisions have often led to the final goal. Of course, further revisions can also be made, but then we will go through the entire mix again together in concrete terms.

About me

My name is Niels and I have been focusing on rock & pop bands and singer-songwriters for the last few years.

I made my first musical steps in my teens (1999) as a singer in Berlin rock bands. 2007-2010 I studied at the “Deutsche Pop Akademie” (Berlin) and produced various music genres from 2011. I gained intensive knowledge and experience in recording, songwriting, arranging as well as mixing and was allowed to work with some very diverse and interesting artists.

Since the summer of 2015, I have specialized in mixing the genres that fascinate me the most myself – Rock & Pop. These genres are a perfect musical mix for me. Also a reason why my service got the name “Mix Rocks”.
