Ludwig - Mastering Engineer - Tonmeister (VDT)
In 2007 he founded GKG Mastering and by now thousands of songs have been mastered with a lot of success.
“Ludwig’s master celebrates the mix” Timothy Auld
One of the most defining factors about Ludwig’s work is that he puts the same level of love, commitment and energy into every song he masters: 100%. A true perfectionist, he always seeks to transport the emotional and conceptual message of the music into a master- instead of simply making it louder.
Such a high standard is made possible through many years of experience, absolute dedication, studios with meticulously perfected acoustics and monumental analog hardware and the newest inovations in digital audio.
