All you need is one listen to understand. I am obsessed with sound.
Please listen all the way through each track on my profile. Each offers something different, showcasing one more more of my diverse specialties that are only applied when appropriate.
I believe that every person has something that their brain is wired to do better than anything else. After years of being a recording musician who mixed his own material, it wasn't until I started mastering that I realized what my brain was wired for. Very soon I had people wanting to pay me to master their records too. Here we are, nearly a decade later.
I obsess over sound, the complete sound, the FINISHED sound. I am a specialist. If you are looking for stereo music mastering, that is what I do and I do it well. My sound is decidedly Hi-Fi. My mastering philosophy is to work towards a pristine, pure, and timeless sound. Emphasis on clarity, detail, and impact, whether that impact be subtle or intense.

Reviews of Transparent Mastering
One could not recommend Jon of Transparent Mastering enough! Sure, he is a true professional; sure, he is even a superb mastering engineer; but the real reason behind this recommendation is that Jon is an artist of the highest calibre! It was an absolute delight to collaborate with this creative genius on my project!!!
Very nice master, quick communication.
I've worked with Jon on a few projects now and have been pleased as punch with the results! Accommodating and professional, he delivered great results that brought my productions and mixes to the next level!
From the first call I had with Transprent Mastering I knew these guys where awesome and I was interested in working with them. After receiving the mastered copy of my record I was extremely pleased with every bit of detail and balance they brought out in the tunes. They where patient and meticulous, blending things together wonderfully.
If you are looking for a mastering engineer who truly knows what he's doing, is lightning fast, super nice AND affordable, Transparent Mastering is the way to go!
The mastering of our debut EP "MORALS" really took it to a higher level! Boosting just the right frequencies to let all the right things pop while gaining a lot of volume and sub end.
I've brought two full-length albums to Transparent Mastering, and have been very happy with the results both times. He provided helpful advice for the mixes so I could make a couple tweaks before mastering that made the final results even better.
We went to Transparent Mastering for our newest single and he nailed it! We had a very short deadline and he delivered the master with impeccable timing. He took our mix and brought it to new life!
Transparent Mastering has mixed and mastered two short films with me. He's done an impeccable job every time from salvaging bad audio to making many layers sit together very well. I'm an audio layman but I wouldn't trust anyone else to elevate my films to a new level.
I have used Transparent Mastering for several different releases and have always been amazed with what he can add to a mix! Loudness is achieved while still staying true to the intended dynamics. Brightness is added without overdoing it. And the tracks sounds good no matter what they're being played back on.
