cutandboost Mastering is a professional mastering studio owned and operated by Simon Uter-Kirschey in Berlin. The focus is on enhancing and finalizing independent artists records for physical and digital formats – offering mastering for vinyl, CD and digital distribution formats.

The goal is to release the full potentional through the mastering process of what have achived while capturing recording in the most musical way. Your mixes are more than a file or rather spools of magnet tape. They are your art!

The most important aspect in mastering is communication. Optimal results come from clear expactations from the client and open communication on the process from the engineer. If you are interested in having me master your record or having a test master for listening, please come in contact with me.

Listen in details and bring out the best are the guiding principles at cutandboost Mastering.
