I fell in love with music at an early age.
Listening to my parents' record collection and discovering various instruments by myself, I soon was trying to get answers why and when I perceived music to be kind of magic and touching. Taking this concept one step further, I wanted to understand how to capture this magic through recording, mixing and mastering.
As a result I developed a strong interest in every aspect of music, from the simple generation of a sound, to music theory, to recording, to mixing, up until up until the final mastering stage.
Originally from Berlin, I moved to Vienna and studied "Tonmeister" (Audio Engineering) at the University of Music and Performing Arts.
In 2011 I began to specialize in audio mastering and started to buy analog gear for that purpose.
Since then I've had the good luck to master many songs from a broad variety of genres, learning a lot along the way.
In addition to being an Audio Engineer, I am also a musician and I know how it feels to put "your baby" into someone else's hands.
If you have sound references or particular sound requests for what direction you want your mastered music to sound like I would be happy to talk with you about this.
Because certainly, it is possible to rock your baby gently or comfort it with a more tonic touch.

Having worked with Hans Wagner for ten years now , I consider him one of the most reliable, patient and competent sound engineers in the field. His mixes and masters are transparent, rich and extremely focused on optimizing the quality of the recorded room. He never leave the task before the client is satisfied

I am very impressed what Hans could get out of this live recording with all those noises from a Ballet live performance. His spectral cleaning and dynamic range processing made it possible, that the Hamburg Ballet now tours with this great sounding master as a full playback show in big theaters. Thanks Hans! This mastering experience changed my idea of what is possible in audio restauration.

Hans Wagner is a great asset when it comes to master your files. I have worked with him since years and his deep technical and musical understanding make him the best choice to work with. He is also a very nice guy and a team-player, always looking for the result you have in your mind, but going an amazing step further.
Gonzalo Diaz Yerro – Composer – Madrid
Hans is a splendid mastering engineer, a true master of his art. Being a classically trained musician and composer as well, he understands and knows how to execute the different approaches different music styles need. I have never got a mix back from him worse than it was before, by far the opposite. I will always be coming back to him for my mastering needs.
