Be Ready for Opportunity

Custom mastering reveals the Clarity, Depth, Punch, Balance, Shine, Groove, and Meaning you worked so hard to create.

Quality always stands out!

WELCOME

Whew! Your music is almost FINISHED!

You have no doubt come a long way from songwriting all the way through mixing. Now your music needs to be ready for duplication and distribution.

This is the final CRUCIAL stage in a long creative process. From here your songs will represent you as an artist to future fans.

After mastering with Mark, you can feel 100% confident that your songs will:

Sound GREAT when played on most systems, in mono, from vinyl, etc.
Have appropriate loudness, frequency response, wideness, etc. for their genre
Achieve YOUR musical vision. You don’t want to feel later like there was more you could have done for the sonics.

Our album was a mix of many styles, and Mark met each one with skillfulness and flexibility. He was very thorough, and worked very hard on getting our songs to sound in ways that we liked. He really cared about our project, was patient, and went the extra mile to create high quality work, for which we are very grateful.

Working with Mark is awesome. He has a deep knowledge of sound and a ton of experience. He’s an excellent listener and delivered exactly what I asked for. I’ve worked with him on multiple projects including a commercial, on which he went above and beyond to make sure I got what I needed and all before deadline. I can’t recommend Mark enough!
