You follow your own musical compass.

You care about the tone, texture, and details in your music. But every mix could use a little more love.

Maybe you need help bringing out background vocals, getting more punch and energy from transients, enhancing section transitions, adding width and height to a record, achieving loudness without harshness, or getting the lead vocal to sit better.

Custom mastering is your answer. I follow YOUR sonic direction, asking detailed questions and listening to your concerns like a good producer.

Your tracks turn into finished works of art, with the tone and balance you've been looking for. The songs shine, and the lyrics and performances reveal their meaning.

 

Care. Attention. Taste.

Tasteful creative touches are part of what distinguishes you as an artist. Mastering is a link in the chain of creating a work of art. So I take my direction from you, the artist.

Want your music to be loud and competitive without sounding harsh? No problem. I'll dig in and fix issues that are keeping it from being turned up.

Printing CDs or vinyl? I'll make sure the album sequencing, metadata, song transitions, inter-track loudness levels, fades, and tone matching are done right.

Need to get 100% ready for streaming or music licensing? I'll provide properly-dithered outputs with metadata for all tracks, including your instrumentals and other variations.

 

Why Master with Mark?

Hi, I'm Mark Scetta. Like many of you, music was my first language. I spent 25+ years actually playing and producing music. So when I master a song, I'm coming at it like a musician with rocket-science audio skills.

I help indie artists achieve a certain feel or vision by giving their work personalized attention.

I work with artists who follow their own musical compass. Artists dedicated to their craft. Artists looking for a partner to finalize their sound. Artists for whom a 'mastering robot' is not an option.

I take the time to understand the sound you’re going for–and why. I'll give you honest feedback on how to achieve your vision and for areas of improvement.

Clients say that I'm passionate about great sound, I respect the feel of their songs, I give in-depth attention, go the extra mile, and I really care about the project (their words, not mine!). I admit--I have high standards! I just want to improve the presentation of the song.

I'll do whatever it takes to help your music move people. I am honored to you bring out the message, vibe, and soul of your creative work. 🙌🏽

Musical Artists whom I've had the pleasure to work with include Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Fred Schneider (B-52’s), Groove Collective, The Orange Factory (Jay Sean), David Davinchi, Stacie Nevins, Fat Buddah, Snub, Preach, The Amount Boys, Pigeon Thieves, Teragram, Nate Cozzolino and the Lost Arts, Birdlife, and more.
