Svante has mastered thousands of albums over the last 20 years. However, such a vast amount of mastering isn't what makes a great engineer. That comes from treating ‍‍‍every track with the same passion and dedication.

Mastering Excellence since 2005


Henkka has profound respect for the heart of the sound and relentless enthusiasm for the highest-grade analog equipment. It's a successful formula that's resulted in an extensive résumé packed with hit records.

Henkka's room is in Kalasatama (Fish Market) in East Helsinki inside the The Grind Studios complex. It's a cool loft location next to the meat packaging district, where the neighbours are top Finnish producers and songwriters.

A disciple of simplic‍‍‍ity and quality, Henkka's room is built around an Amph‍‍‍ion 5.1 speaker system, top-of-the line converters, and a proven analog chain.

Henkka has a remarkably eclectic portfolio from cutting edge urban genres, through to popular and traditional. His Chartmakers East credits include world-famous international artists.

Svante's playground is in the leafy suburb of Nöykkiö, Espoo, just outside Helsinki. The quiet streets outside belie the mayhem, fireworks and joy in the wide range of music running through Chartmakers West.

While much of Svante's output is heavy, he is also mastering engineer of choice for all kinds of popular household-name artists and national treasures.

The studio is built around Eggleston Works Savoy speakers. Svante has built up his perfect mastering chain by scrutinizing virtually every known mastering tool.
