Our Services


Mastering is the final piece of the audio process. The mastering engineer offers a fresh perspective on the general sonics of the record and makes small but important changes to ensure the mix translates as best as possible.


When mixing, our engineers' goal is to bring the feel of your record to life. The sonic needs of each record are unique and we pride ourselves in approaching your mix with this in mind, allowing its distinctive voice to shine through.
