    Guys, for anyone looking for mastering atm you could do worse than try my mate Rich at FX Mastering in London.
    He's the bass player in Centurion's Ghost and has recently remastered The Who, The Stones and Sabbath - look.
    Not saying you'll get mate rates or anything, but his star is rising right now and their prices aren't too bad.

    btw, to be clear: Timo Tolkki WAS the producer on all the Stratovarius albums he was on, BUT they were all mixed by Mikko Karmila from Episode to all the studio albums after that, so I would rather hire him than Timo Tölkki ;)

    edit:
    [offtopic]

    Producers on Bodoms records:
    - Something Wild, Anssi Kippo & COB
    - Hatebreeder, Anssi Kippo
    - Follow The Reaper, Peter Tägtgren, Mikko Karmila
    - Hatecrew Death Roll, Anssi Kippo (producer) Mikko Karmila (mix)
    - Are You Dead Yet, Mikko Karmila & Anssi Kippo
    - Blooddrunk, Mikko Karmila & Peter Tängtgren
    - Relentless Reckless Forever, Matt Hyde

    He recorded and mixed the last Symfonia record (his new band) i think it sounds awesome

    My band is almost ready to hire Timo Tolkki to mix my band new album :) would fit perfect for that...


    ps : We could make a group Buy , and buy timo tolkki samples, he is selling 3 strato snare + 3 kicks + 3 toms for 100 euros...

    who's in?

    i might be risking all and any credibility i might have left here, but what exactly is wrong with that saana - warrior of light?


    edit - nvm, i got to the part with actual instruments. yeah, that sounds pretty terrible.

    I would like to hear the original files before he mixed them. To be fair they might have been complete shite lol

    Are you sure he mixed the last symfonia record, I read somewhere he produced it but it was mixed and mastered in Italy.

    Oh, thought he only did mixing and mastering. If that's the case, oh dear...

    Well here is Timo telling some shit about the case:



    I think he co-mixed the album. He actually tried to lend my 5150 II for the album demoing over a year ago, but some friends of mine told Timo have had pretty big issues with money, so I didn't want to say goodbye for my head. I just want to say for the guys who are offering their material for Timo to mix, make sure you have a clear unambiguous contract before payment!!!
