Welcome to Da Goose Mastering

My name is Jeffrey de Gans and I am the proud owner and head-engineer of Da Goose Mastering. My studio is located in Hendrik-Ido-Ambacht, in the Rotterdam area, the Netherlands. This is where I dedicate my life to give your music the final touch it deserves.

With kind regards / Met vriendelijk groet,

Summer holiday

I will be on a holiday from the 5th of August until the 23th of August. Keep this in mind when planning your mastering.



I offer my mastering services to musicians, producers, bands, labels and studios. 

I use only the best analog hardware and digital software to improve the clarity, definition, and depth of your precious recordings.

I also offer stem-mastering, though most of the times stem-mastering is not needed and it will not make your master better. Please contact me first if you think working with stems will be the way to go.

Other services

Besides mastering I can help you with editing, restoration, transfer and (mix) advise. 

If you are looking for someone serious to do your mixing, I have some awesome mixing-engineers in my direct connections which are pleased to help you!

If you are looking for inspiring lectures or seminars about mastering or music and audio in general, i’m also here to help you.

“Mastering is the final step before your music is released to the world. I take that very seriously.”

Stem Mastering

With stem mastering individual audio tracks (stems) are grouped together for independent control and sound processing. The maximum amount of stems that I work with is 5. The masters include a digital and streaming version in both 16bit and 24bit.

 Tracks  2 stems  3 stems  4 stems  5 stems
 1 track  € 60  € 70  € 80  € 90
 2 tracks  € 120  € 140  € 160  € 180
 3 tracks  € 180  € 210  € 240  € 270

 5 tracks  € 300  € 350  € 400  € 450

Please contact me first before deciding to order stem-mastering. Most of the times stem-mastering is not needed and stereo mastering will work fine.


I prefer the use of the online order system for per track mastering.  

In case of an album or other specific wishes that will not fit the online order system, please provide me with all this information: companyname, contactname, full adress, VAT number and emailadres. You will receive an agreed upon invoice and after the payment is payed in full, I will start mastering.

All prices are excluding 21% VAT.

Da Goose Mastering’s friendly service has communication as key, so don’t hesitate to contact me with your questions. I look forward to working with you!
