Please write me a message for a detailed price list.


For me, instruments and vocals are always a means of conveying feelings and I try to capture those feelings in every recording session.

The performance of the musicians and the quality of the instruments are just as important as the selection and position of the microphones. At the end of the day it's always about the song's vision. Together we develop and implement this vision.

A good mix always starts with the great recording.


I offer a mixing and masteringservice at fair prices. It doesn't matter if you send me tracks online or if you want to be part of the mixing sessions, almost everything is possible.

Just send me a rough mix of the song (s) and you will get an individual offer based on the effort of the mix. However, the price will not exceed 400 euros per song.

If you have any references, wishes or ideas for the songs, I am happy to hear them. It's YOUR music and the best mix is the one YOU like.


I offer a high end mastering service. With a combination of top notch analogue gear and precised software tools I will always make the best out of your song.

In addition to the creative mastering process I provide implementation of meta data, ISRC codes and DDP images.

Sometimes a stem mastering might be a good choice for your project, just feel free to get in conatct with me and we find the best possible solution for your music.


If you need a composer or co-writer for your music projects, we may can work together. I work for many national and international artists, creating music and lyrics based on their musical vision.

Since songwriters are not usually paid at a flat rate, a possible cooperation depends strongly on the market relevance of the project. The best way is to contact me personally or contact Meisel Musikverlage / Edition Keine Faxen for an information request.


In my opinion, offering productions in every genre is not authentic. Nevertheless, I can help genre - independently with any production. Together with session - musicians and authors I offer music productions in the field of Hip Hop, Pop, RnB and Soul.

Workshops & Lectures

As a long-time lecturer at the SAE Institute Berlin, Noisy Academy, Ulanda and Akademie-Media as well as a Steinberg certified trainer, I offer workshops as well as private lessons in the field of sound engineering and music production. I also offer workshops and tutoring on Steinberg products such as Cubase and Wavelab, as well as company training and advanced training in the field of sound engineering.


For all services like recording, mixing, production or educational services please get in touch with me to get prices based on the effort of your project.

Since mastering is a pretty straight forward process my rates are normally fixed. For projects including more than five songs, DDP Image, Apple Digital Masters or other formats and edits, please feel free to ask for a quote.

* all prices are incl. 19% tax.
