Mihai Ristea, Producer Testimonial
"Everything sounds great!!"
 

John Rogers, JR mastering
 
CONGRATS TO ANDRA!  The song "Telephone" that I mastered, peaked at #5 on the Billboard charts in Romania, entry date Sept 18, 2011!
 
Songwriter/producer Mihai Ristea contacted me to master his latest project featuring Romanian singer Andra.  She is currently performing all over Europe, appearing on several TV shows, and MTV promoting her new hit single “Telephone,” a song I mastered in July 2011.
 
The mixes on this project were very good.  Clean with good frequency balance and spacing.  I just did my thing and the masters came out great!
 
When mastering, sometimes I will use a “top radio hit” song as a reference track, to hear the current trends in commercial radio music.  With this project, the mastering came out “better” than most of the radio reference tracks I use!  Ha!  There was no need to reference anything.  Which proves once again, just because a major label pays $40,000 to have a song recorded, mixed and mastered, doesn’t mean it will sound great.  All it means is they paid $40,000 for one song!  It depends who did the work.
 
Mihai and Andra, I wish you great success with this and future projects!  Great job!

John Rogers - Danceur Magazine Interview (July 2018)

Since the begining of his solo career in 2008, I mastered over 80 songs with the top French recording artist NYLS.  Great pop dance music with a lot of remixes.  During his entire career (as of now), I mastered most of if not all the song he released.  It was a great pleasure working with NYLS and Nico at Icon Records!

Here are the series of audio mastering software processors I've used on the over 30,000 songs I've mastered since 1999.  In this video, I use mostly izotope ozone plugins because it's easier to explain using them.  In real-life, I do mix in a few hardware pieces, and a waves plugin.
