Lars Meijer is the owner of "MasteringbyLars" and also a mastering engineer at the legendary Wisseloord Studios.
Lars Meijer his musical interest started at a very young age, where he developed as a musician (drummer, percussionist, and timpanist). During his music education “Sound Design & Music at the University of Applied Sciences”, he becomes fascinated by the mysticism that surrounds mastering of audio. Seized by this magic, his passion for mastering was born.
In 2015 he started a trainee at Sander van der Heide at the Wisseloord Studios. His qualities did not go unnoticed and at the early beginning of 2016, he was asked if he wanted to join the mastering team.
My mission: “Music is an emotional experience and through my technical knowledge and creative solutions, I create in collaboration with the artist, label, or producer the best-tailored end result“

lars is great, pro and fast! his work speaks for itself. highly recommended.
The mastering service was highly professional. The master was clean and crisp and had the depth I was looking for. I did not need any revisions. Lars is replying very quickly and my master was done in just a few days. I can truly recommend!
Finished my third song with Lars and as expected, I got back a beautiful sounding master! Throughout our time working together Lars was not only quick and professional but so kind and friendly which made working with him really easy and fun. Now I know I'll be leaving my future songs in safe hands! Until next time! :)
Just received another perfect master and I'm excited to work on more music soon, thank you Lars! :)
Lars is an incredible mastering engineer, and I had a fantastic experience working with him. His notes on my mix were super helpful prior to mastering, and the end result was a super clean, punchy dance song I am even more confident about. 10/10
Lars did an amazing job mastering my song, looking forward to future projects! :)
Despite the time difference, Lars was quick to respond and helpful at giving adjustments as we needed. He was patient as we needed a few rounds of revisions. Our track came out sounding better than we could have imagined!
Amazing masters as always ☀️
As always: perfectisimo
Lars did it again! Mastered my song with the perfect amount of added punchiness and clarity, and a great balance. And also somehow made the focused elements pop more from the mix without me even sending stems. Great work as usual!!
Excellent work again, didn't even need a revision.
Lars is a fantastic Mastering Engineer that knows what he is doing!
He is quick, he is skilled and took my track to the next level!!

10/10 as always!
Great service as always!
As always great mastering service!
Great job! Low end control 10/10 and as always amazing job!
Quick, great communicator, and amazing job. Totally nailed the vibe I was going for. Made my track crisp, and wide. The drop really exploded after Lars put his touch on it. Amazing work.
I use Lars for all my mastering, he delivers a great product time and time again. Friendly and responsive communication.
Interview with Lars Meijer
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: A client made music 10-15 years ago and saved a hard drive, but could not open the project anymore. The music was for him very special and asked to help make the best sound to get out of it. His response was mind blown and brought tears of joy to his eyes. That was a very special moment to help a client like that.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Electronic Music
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Yes my mixing partners
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I'll make your rough diamond shine as no other one can.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Can you help me make my music sound better - YES that is what I do and love to help you:-)
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Everything I need to know about the song/project.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Ask and discuss everything you like to know or share with the engineer you working with. This way he/she can get the best out of your project (at least that is what I do)
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Lavry AD122 96, SPL PQ Mastering EQ, Maselec MEA-2, Dangerous BAX EQ, Manley Stereo Variable MU-Mastering version, SPL Loudness Maximizer
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I don't have any preferences. Every artist or person is treated the same from AAA to home producers are welcome to work with.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Helping people make there music sound great
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Making it loud only
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: See my description
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Personally and Tailored
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Best of both worlds. A hybrid setup now days will and get the best out of the music.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Before mastering, I always give free advice if a mix can be improved. This way I can make the music shine even more so the listener will enjoy even better.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Less is more. The more sounds you put in a song the fuller the wall-of-sound will become. But as a mastering engineer for me its important that files are delivered the right way and checked that on errors, distortion, no limited, the right bit depth/resolution etc.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Most of the time it's electronic music but pop, r&b or singer-songwriters also find me to help them
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I can only say to judge for yourself or see my reviews.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: See above
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I first like to know the project or story behind a song. It tells something to me to bring to the mastering stage. Mastering is creative and to know more about the whole idea behind the music I can collaborate better with artists, producer or label.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: At the Wisseloord Studios we have custom build mastering/recording rooms where you can hear a needle drop while in de room next door they are recording a guitar amp at 11!! It's a state of the art place where sound and quality is the number one.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Music is all about vibe and feel. Sometimes it’s the vocal that touches me with a good reverb or the other time the groove of the drums or the dark bass that makes me move. Make your music I interesting for the listener!!!
