Mastering Magic? It’s a secret I’m willing to share:
LOUD! yet still...
It’s not something you’d ordinarily be able to get anywhere digitally. It takes analog magic. Obviously if you started off with a powerful magic mix from my Online Analog Mixing service, I could whump up major industrial strength magic for you, but if you’re just looking for quick online mastering, I can create enough magic in the mastering process alone to still blow your socks off. Even while you are still wearing shoes! (Talk about real magic, eh?) Behold the magic!
Analog Mastering Service
Magically Mastered for iTunes & CD
Share the magic with mortals
Audio professionals like you and I know that the old “Louder is better” cliche just isn’t true. It’s only louder. It just overwhelms our ears. But, while a loud track can get a lot of attention, it is usually overcompressed and loses detail. It’s like loud white noise. So I add my own proven magic to mastering. I still deliver that attention getting loudness, but it’slike a billion pixel photo, with every single little detail still crisp, full, rich and warm.
Socks will be blown off. Ears will cry with joy. My Analog Mastering will make the difference. And only you will know that magic was involved.
SHHHH - DON’T TELL ANYBODY!

Clemens Schleiwies - Well known Mix and Mastering Engineer, Practicing HexenMeister.
I love music so much that it brought out the magic in me. So I can now
take nearly any kind of music and mix it into something truly spellbinding.
Because I just love big, plump, voluptuous, curvy, warm ... uh - - SOUNDS.
OH. That’s right, we’re talking about sound, here, aren’t we?
(Come on. give me a break. After all I’m a wizard and only super-human!)

How does magic mastering work on-line?
1Click "Book Now!"- where you can indicate how many songs you have to magically master. You now have the HexenMeister’s attention.
2After payment is received - (Thank you) - hey, wizards can’t cast spells for free - otherwise the magic won’t work. After that’s out of the way, you’ll be given a private Dropbox folder where you can upload your audio files.
3I’ll take your files from the secure Dropbox and work my magic on them with enchanted ingredients like the Helios console and outboard gear like Neve API and tape. Whoa! Abra Cadabra!
4Within a few hours, I’ll send your magically mastered masterpieces back to you on an MP3 via Dropbox. Play them back LOUD. And be sitting down. Magic has a powerful effect on people.
5Listen very intently. And more than once. You have one day to tell me if there’s anything you’d like to change. And I’ll revise and tweak the master to satisfy your request.
5But remember I can only do this once. More than that and the magic begins working against itself and my studio will blow up. It’s happened before. I don’t know why. Magic just works that way.
7I’ll send back your master, re-magicked on MP3. Make sure the room you are in has a high ceiling. You will jump for joy. (I will not be held liable for head injuries - you were warned.)
8I`ll deliver the final mastered files, ready for release. You will get a "Mastered for iTunes" version in high resolution 24 Bit / 96KHz, as well as a 16 Bit/44,1 KHz version for digital distribution and a DDP master for CD manufacture.
what’s the dark side of all this magic?"

It’s Practical Magic, painless and simple.
1. Bookings can be canceled for a full refund until the evening before the scheduled online mastering session.
If you do not absolutely love my magic and if you’re not completely satisfied with how big, warm and loud your new mix sounds, then I don’t deserve your money.
So, listen to this refund offer.
Within 60 days, have the track mastered again by one of the following mastering engineers:
Brian "Big Bass" Gardner, Bernie Grundman, Greg Calbi, Ted Jensen, Tom Coyne, Chris Gehringer, Emily Lazar,
...and if you like their master better than mine, send me a copy of their master and I will cheerfully give you a 100% full refund of my online mastering fee!
It’s so fair and down to earth, you’d hardly believe any magic was involved at all.
