Human Ears, Human Care, all the way!
"I definitely have other material for you! You made that mix sound great!
I can’t wait for you to get your hands on some of my others! Can I get your number?"

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!
Not all formats require the same master. One size never fits all.
A loud CD master may not perform as well on streaming platforms or vinyl.
This is why I master in multiple formats.
