The art of audio mastering is just that: an art. Whether the final delivery format is CD, vinyl, digital download, streaming or Dolby Atmos, mastering is the last technical and artistic step in the production process.
While it’s true that great equipment is very important in realizing a project’s full potential, it’s only useful in the hands of an experienced engineer, equipped with the critical listening skills to help create a master that realizes your true creative vision.
We bring professional, unbiased ears, and a fresh, invaluable third-party perspective to each and every project. Our goal is to help our clients end up with the best sounding projects possible, giving your upcoming release a far better chance at being successful.
We encourage clients to attend sessions when they can; that’s one reason we built such a comfortable room here in Westchester, NY. Hearing your masters play on our full-range reference monitors in our calibrated listening environment may be the best listening experience you’ll have.
Our staff is dedicated to helping all clients, big and small, and will treat them with equal care, focus, and relentless commitment to the craft. We look forward to working together on your upcoming release.
