World-class audio mastering services

I use a custom-designed analog and digital hardware chain and precision monitoring to bring out a timeless clarity and warmth in my clients’ final song mixes.

Every piece of gear in the mastering signal path has been hand-picked and modified for the highest in sonic fidelity, all the way down to the cables.

I’ve designed a simple and direct signal chain to let the music deliver as much emotion and clarity as possible.

I am continually upgrading equipment, so equipment list is subject to change.
