THE STUDIO

Obsidian Mastering was founded in 2015 and initially started as a recording studio in the heart of Dutch Design and Technology capital Eindhoven. By high demand early 2018 I decided to focus mainly on high-end mixing and mastering.
The studio is built from the ground up, is soundproof and has had professional acoustic treatment by Studio Waveworks.
