Bender Mastering Studio is Portugal’s first dedicated mastering facility providing attended sessions locally and unattended & online mastering services for the rest of the world. Our studio is equipped with high-end analogue gear from brands like Focal, Prism Sound, Maselec, elysia or TK Audio. The analogue gear is complemented with a vast selection of digital tools from developers like Audiofile Engineering, iZotope, DMG Audio, TDR or Voxengo. The studio is owned by Miguel Pinheiro Marques, a mastering engineer with a music degree that used to work as a recording engineer before dedicating full-time to mastering. Miguel was a founding member of Estúdios Sá da Bandeira, where he worked till 2009, a year before he opened Bender Mastering Studio. Miguel was also an author for Portugal’s biggest pro audio magazine and he currently collaborates with AudioXpress, mostly doing gear reviews for this US based magazine. He recently published his first pro audio book, written in Portuguese, called “Sistemas e Técnicas de Produção Áudio“. The book is widely available and sold in both Portugal and Brazil. Since opening this studio Miguel has mastered music from practically every musical genre, with such diverse clientele that includes local indie bands to major labels and groups in several countries.
