Human Ears, Human Care, all the way!
"And, of course, brilliantly mastered by Brian Murphree at Soundporter!"

All masters are CD masters, because competitive level CD's are largely more difficult to achieve, meanwhile maintain vitality, clarity, and dynamics.
Mastering shouldn't be a mystery.
It should be magical.
Your music should be served always.
Anyone can be a little nervous about what happens after the mix is done.
My promise is to give your music its best sonic performance, not change it.
Need a fresh pair of ears to hear your mix?
Stop worrying whether your mix is ready for mastering!
I'll listen to your mix FREE and give you feedback!
I'm on your team. Think of me as your human mix bus.
The 'Iterative' Master
Once you've paid for an initial master, you can easily make mix revisions and send them back over for another pass at a fraction of the cost!
40,000 masters and counting!
No. That's not what I claim. In fact, if you're reading something like that on any mastering website, you should question why that number is so important. It often means your master is just one in a long line of "units". How much quality time has the engineer spent on your music?
Grammy-winning mastering houses don't advertise the numbers they achieve, they're known by the clients they attract. If you want an amazing master from a mastering engineer who thrives on quality and treats your master like it's his own work, you're in the right place.
We have the world's finest gear!
No. That's not what I claim, either. Clients shouldn't worry about only the equipment the mastering engineer uses. If you've been told to judge a mastering engineer based on their mastering chain, you may just miss out on a better master. The result is the "prize", is it not?
The single biggest difference between a decent master and a great master is accomplished by the mastering engineer, not the gear.
I maintain a hybrid hardware/software mastering chain. Yes, there are some amazing pieces of hardware out there, and the owners will swear by them. I've been there.
I don't use a piece of world-famous hardware because it's the one lauded as a "holy grail". I use it if it's the right EQ.
Send me a mix and get a free demo.
You should ask for a free demo. It's wonderful to hear your mix as a test master from even multiple mastering engineers. Like the demo enough to release it? Just purchase the download right there for a discount and you're free to just run with it! Easy!
Then, use the purchased download as a credit toward a full mastering session or more!
Mastered your music elsewhere, but would still love to hear what I can do? Almost no mastering engineer offers this! If you send me the exact same mix you sent to another mastering engineer, I can produce a demo master you can compare it to. How's that for friendly service!
