I am a mastering engineer, my work is driven by the themes, subtexts, and emotions that my clients are trying to express, in order to render the artist’s intent more clearly to the listener. At the end of the day, I provide the technical fixes and final sonic creative polish needed for delivery for analogue and digital formats (vinyl, cassette, CD, streaming, digital download). Most mastering jobs for a standard-length album are finished within one business week, but that can vary based on communication patterns with the client, and how busy the studio is. Please note that I do not offer free samples or demos.
While I always will make “mix fix" suggestions on every mastering project, I also offer more detailed mix review services for those artists that want to learn and correct any mix issues themselves prior to mastering. Detailed and actionable critiques and suggestions can be provided via email, or done via live chat with uncompressed audio streaming back to the client. See my rate sheet for more.
I also provide a lot of guidance and education for my clients along the way. In an era where long-term artistic development is rarely handled by labels anymore, I think this is vitally important to all sonic artists. Many clients tell me the knowledge they gain is worth the price, not even including the actual mastering work.
