Maven Mastering Studio

Maven Mastering studio was created in beautiful countryside town Urla, after extensive two years of design and planning phases to create a quiet and extremely accurate listening environment.

The Maven House was built completely from scratch with a sole purpose of incorporating a mastering studio, but it is also a small home with a kitchen and bedroom. Spacious 30m2 mastering room was designed with a window to the outside world which is a rarity in music studios. Sunlight and pine tree view is a great positive experience for both engineer and clients.

Our mastering room was designed and built with respect to three key qualities that makes a studio above the standards; superior acoustics, well designed wiring and grounding system and top of the range speakers. All these ensure that sounds coming from the source are delivered in the best quality possible.

Maven mastering studio is also extremely quiet thanks to its remarkable insulation and ventilation system. In addition, all noisy equipment is designed to be outside the control room.

Finally, there is our world class mastering grade equipment to provide high caliber analog electronics that helps us make your music stand out. Check our gear section to learn more. You probably get the picture by now that listening music and working in Maven room is quite an experience and we share this experience with our clients by making their music shine.

Studio Wiring

All audio wiring for the mastering studio is made in shortest lenghts with Mogami cables and Neutrik gold connectors, soldered with Mundorf Supreme %9 silver solder (better conductivity), heaviest possible gauges were used for electrical and ground wiring and well designed grounding system was installed with pure copper ground rods to guarantee excellent electrical noise floor and sound quality. No patchbays are used in Maven Mastering room to avoid quality loss. A handmade mastering insert switcher was made by Markus Samper to ensure audio is switched in and out of analog gear seamlessly in shortest way, with aircraft grade switches and gold plated relays.
