Daniel Söderberg - Mastering Engineer

    (Daniel optimised the Mastering Chains of our Templates and is our final Quality Check)

    As a fellow musician, I understand the importance of making sure your music captures the message and emotion you want to convey. That's why my main goal is to help you achieve the best possible sound for your music, without losing any of the feeling or vibe that makes it unique.

    I work in one of the finest mastering rooms in northern Europe, and I'm only mentioning that because it does make a positive difference in your audio. On top of that, I've been mastering since 2012 and have learned from some of the most skilled professionals in the industry.

    I understand that being a musician is all about expressing yourself and connecting with your audience. That's why I'm passionate about what I do.

Frequently Asked Questions

The templates and sample packs are compatible with Ableton Suite V11.2.11+ Bitwig Studio V4.2+ FL Studio V21.0.3+ and Logic Pro 10.7.8+

Definitely, that's the plan! The Rapid Flow template is only a starting point to show you sounds that work. Once you hear proven kicks, basses, hi-hats etc. feeding into a killer mastering chain, adding your own sounds is much easier.

Yes. We offer our "Certified Banger" Guarantee. Simply try out and use our products in your studio for 12 months. If you aren't satisfied that they helps you create banger after banger, let us know. We'll refund the full cost straight into your bank account. Plus you can forget about returning the sample packs. They're all yours to keep - forever. Please check our Return Policy for more details.

Absolutely! Once you have a proven starting point, it is easy to add new kicks, basses, melodies etc. and know when they sound right. There are also limiters on every channel so you get a good balance when adding new elements. The video also explains what to look for in the Ableton Spectrum Analyzer. The A/B Crossfader workflow to instantly compare your track to reference tracks is the final ingredient. You will not be mixing in the blind.

Both! The Rapid Flow template uses a structure that is really simple and fast in the studio and powerful for live performance. The best thing: every track you work on will immediately be ready to be played on stage. No transfer or further editing necessary.

This is optional but much more fun. I recommend either the AKAI APC40 MKII or if you're on a budget, the AKAI MIDIMIX. Basically any controller with 8 faders and 8 rotary knobs will do. I take you through the setup in the video. (Using Push: as a few people have asked...people have it working.)

The principles we use apply to any DAW but do not cover all DAWs out there yet... At this moment we offer custom made products for Ableton Live, Bitwig Studio, FL Studio and Logic Pro
