Jean-Marc Boulier - SoundWise on SoundBetter

I deliver professionally mastered records daily for a living, with high standards in quality control. I am also a musician and audio engineer with a long experience in music production, from arranging for French pop star Sebastien Tellier to mastering Singapore hip hop artist Nikhil Senan's debut album. I have found my true calling in mastering!

Here is what I will do with your music:

- Listen to it meticulously in a professionally designed room with mastering-grade acoustics, full-range, phase-aligned HEDD monitoring and ARC 3 acoustic correction
- If necessary, provide informed feedback on your songs
- Thoroughly check for unwanted noise, glitch or artefact and suggest an appropriate solution
- Listen to provided references or top hits in your genre, and use that as benchmark in my mastering session
- Apply any processing I deem beneficial (and nothing superfluous), using some of the best/latest mastering software such as Shadow Hills, iZotope, AcusticaAudio, MeterPlugs, Brainworx etc.
- Generate quality-checked wav files in both 16bits/44,1kHz and 24bits/native SR

I won't attempt to imprint my own sound to your music or crush its dynamics (unless you explicitly request it), my goal is to preserve your artistic vision while improving your mix when possible. I am very thorough and pay a lot of attention to detail.

Mastering comes with two rounds of revisions so you can request for adjustments if the first attempt isn't completely to your liking. Additional revisions are charged $25 (but are very rarely necessary). Please note that submitting a new mix of the same song is charged as an extra revision, so make it is final before sending it over.

I can't wait to help you finalize you release!

    I was a little bit anxious to entrust a stranger with my own song but I am really happy I took the plunge. Jean-Marc has been super helpful from start to finish and did a really great job in a very small amount of time. I highly recommend his services!

    I had approached Jean after seeing one of his very competent comments about mastering on Reddit, because I was just looking for a mastering engineer who could remaster one of our songs.
    From the initial contact, through the suggestions for improving my mix, the actual mastering and delivery, the collaboration with SoundWise Mastering was a fully professional experience. I will be very happy to return for future jobs.

    It was great working with Jean-Marc. He was a clear communicator, he completed his work on my songs in a timely manner, and really made my songs jump out of the speakers and sound great. I highly recommend him for mastering.

  13. Review by Diya T.

    I went for a vocal recording session with SoundWise in March 2022, and thoroughly enjoyed it! Jean-Marc was quite professional and well-prepared for my recording session and provided helpful feedback in areas of my song where I was unable to identify the weak spots. The studio is well-equipped and the overall atmosphere was quite welcoming and creative. Would definitely be coming back again!
