15+ years experience Recording, Mixing and Editing every style of music from Rock, Hip Hop, Heavy Metal and all varieties of Dance Music.
We can put the finishing touches on your professional or home studio recording and have you completely amazed by the results. Michael Wenz has had the opportunity to put the final touches on hundreds of records for artists and record labels across the globe with his Mastering and Arrangement Techniques. WenzMastering is devoted to providing high quality audio at an affordable price.
Every step of our mixing process has been carefully planned to take your audio the highest level possible by using best in the world A/D converters and analog hardware in our professionally treated room. All tracks can be summed and processed individually using top of the line analog compressors and equalizers. With nearly 20 years mixing experience we know exactly what you are looking for and the results will be astonishing or you pay nothing. We are not interested in making demos or questionable recordings. We only take on projects that are looking to be taken seriously and we will settle for nothing but better then radio quality.
WenzMastering was built on doing extremely accurate and high quality Mastering. Back in the early 2000's Michael was working in Wavelab, Mastering Rock and Punk albums in a commercial studio while Mastering his own Techno music and many other local DJ's Tracks and Mixes. When exporting your tracks please export 32bit 44.1 and take all mastering plugins off your master channel and ensure the volume is sitting at a comfortable -6db.
Ableton Live has become the number one tool for creating and performing groove based projects with the greatest of ease. Many electronic music and hip hop producers work primarily on this platform. Using Ableton since 2005 Michael Wenz is an Ableton Expert and can perfect your Ableton project. You can save your Ableton Live project with your samples and send it to us via WeTransfer.com. We have a long list of plugins to minimize plugin inconsistencies between the systems. If you want the best possible sounding Ableton project mixed on the best in the world analog hardware chain with one of the most experienced Ableton engineers in the world then you have come to the right place. I would dare to say this combination of gear and experience is nearly impossible to reproduce.
I can take your Logic Pro session and most of the time I can open it without any issues. I can usually demo the plugins I do not have. If I can not get your plugins working you will have to send me the audio tracks as they are. When exporting from Logic Pro X, export like this... NUMBERED FILES, 24 Bit, include volume and pan information. Please let me know ahead of time if you are using VariSpeed in your project.
We have two studios in the Milwaukee area. Our tracking facility is located in Downtown Milwaukee near the corner of Wisconsin and Broadway and is in close proximity to the Milwaukee Public Market. This studio can be booked for hourly projects or on a weekend or weekly lockout rate. All sessions and packages include a rough mix of each song when completed. Once your project has been recorded it is professionally Mixed and Mastered at our New Berlin location for an additional fee. Typically it takes up to 48 hours to get each song Mixed and Mastered to a professional level.
If you want your songs to sound professional and modern, editing is a must. I have been editing audio and making critical arrangement decisions for over 16 years. I am able to take your individually exported tracks from your DAW and edit the them by cutting and time stretching to make your instrument or vocal parts sound as one. Having layers and different tones and choices allows your music to sound fuller and have a bigger dynamic impact on a listeners ears. I carefully remove unwanted sections / noise and breaths out of every track when editing. I lineup stereo guitar tracks so they sound as one and I can cut multiple drum takes into one perfect performance.
