In addition to an acoustically optimized room and trained ears, the sound monitor speaker builds the heart of every mastering studio.


Dance Mastering relies on the current Trio 11 reference class from Focal Audio.

NS10 speakers are used as near-field loudspeakers in combination with a Glockenklang Bugatti amplifier.



For the actual mastering process we work HYBRID (analog & digital) to combine the best of both worlds.

On the analog side, mastering processors from Bettermaker, Solid Stage Logic /SSL, Thermionic Culture, Rupert Neve WES Audio with digital converters (AD/DA) from  Dangerous Audio, RME & Apogee are used.


On the digital domain we use tools from  Acustica Audio, Antares, Ben Schulz, Black Box Analog, Black Salt, Brainworx. Dangerous Music, Dear Reality, Eventide, Denise Audio, Elysia, Empirical Labs, FabFilter, Fabrice Gabriel, Flux, Focusrite, Izotope, Kazrog, Kush Audio, Leapwing, Lindell Audio, Maag, Manley, Mastering The Mix, Meter Plugs, Milennia, Newfangled Audio, Neve, Oek Sound, Pro Audio DSP, Process Audio, PSP, Pulsar, Pultec, Shadow Hills, Slate Digital, Softube, Solid State Logic (SSL), Sonnox, SPL, Sound Radix, Soundtheory, TC Electronic, UAD, Valhalla, Vertigo, Waves and Weiss, besides others.


Since every mastering has different requirements, 10 different brickwall limiters, countless compressors, EQs, or various saturation tools and analog tape simulations belong to the arsenal of dance mastering.

For a transparent depth graduation & stereo width, we rely on the so-called MS technology.
