WHY 'CUSTOM' ?

With custom mastering, I personally engineer your unique musical vision for every track. I'll get you the tone, texture, details, punch, balance, space, and fidelity you want based on 20 years of experience in recording, producing, and mastering in most popular styles.

An experienced human mastering engineer can fix mix issues and get your tracks sounding tastefully loud without harshness.

With custom mastering you can:

🔥 Get more punch and energy from a record

🔥 Add clarity and texture

🔥 Get the lead vocal to sit better

🔥 Tighten up the low end

🔥 Add energy going into to the choruses

🔥 Bring an instrument out of the mix

🔥 Fully control loudness, transients, and dynamics

🔥 Optimize height (frequency range), width (soundstage), or depth (space)

🔥 Reduce harshness, noise, room resonances, clicks, pops, crackle, hum, & hiss

🔥 Create properly dithered outputs with metadata

🔥 Create vinyl or CD pre-masters

CARE. ATTENTION. TASTE.

Differentiate your music from other indie productions in your genre. Achieve your vision for each of your songs. Or if you don't have one, I'll help guide you.

Creating an EP or album? Partner with an engineer who can create a cohesive tone, texture, dynamic range, and loudness for the body of work.

NOT A DRIVE-THRU

Custom mastering is organic and human and NOT from a template. I ask detailed questions and follow your wishes. Working together, a final master emerges, usually after 1 or 2 revisions.

I want your tracks to be finished works of art, with the tone you've been reaching for.

CUSTOM DELIVERY
