Brian iele includes a FREE audio quality report on the mastering service that really helps you to get the most out of your mixes before mastering. Send us one unmastered mix and you will get a complete audio quality report in 48 hours.

We have found that most of the problems presented by a less than perfect mix can´t be fixed in mastering, so we invest almost as much time to review the audio quality of the mixes as to the mastering process itself. A Mix review process renders overwhelmingly superior quality mixes before even initiating the mastering stage.
Studio gear is important, but experience and good judgement, as well as full involvement in every project are also key offerings. We are committed to be 100% responsive to your needs.

- Audio Mastering for every format, in stereo and surround 5.1: Vinyl, CD, DVD, Blu-Ray, iTunes (MFiT)
- Mix Coaching (can also be hired separately from our mastering services)
- Seminars and workshops available under request in English and Spanish - Please contact us.

    Extremely Happy Customer

    The reason I will continue to work with Brian is twofold. First he did the best job mastering my music but just as important he took the time to review/critique the song and suggest what he felt should be changed before he worked on the song.
    I had 3 different engineers master the same song and Brian was the only one who did this. I would have expected it from anyone who Masters/Mixes for a living but it was not the case. This is why his final master sounds the best o

    Would highly recommend Brian as a mastering engineer! Despite such a reasonable price, he went so far above and beyond to get my track sounding amazing (and I'm very picky). Thank you so much for everything, Brian!

    Brian’s ears are wonderfully apt and the touch of his engineering is thoughtful and doesn’t over-assert itself. I had a really good time working together with him.

    I had an all around pleasant experience with Brian. He was quick to return messages, answer and questions and or give any feedback. Even though i didn't have the correct content needed for the job he was still able to turn around and make something happen for me. Highly recommended! -Stylitical

    When my daughter, Victoria Celestine, got her first acoustic recording by Gordon Raphael it was Brian Iele who was chosen by Gordon.
    I was impressed by the clarity that Brian was able to achieve in this recording as well as in the following full CD recording. Besides the levels were impressively high compared to other masters.
    Brian is very diligent and professional and we had the pleasure to meet him in Buenos Aires.

    Amazing! Brian brought his impeccable ear to three electronic tracks he recently mastered for me. He took my mixes to the next level, giving them a strong, open sheen that has translated to every system I've played them on. Without a doubt Brian is my new go-to mastering engineer!

    My friend Brian Iele in Argentina has been a trusted music contact for me since 2009 when he brought me to Buenos Aires for the first time. Since then (8 more trips to that fine city!) He has organized production masterclasses for me, live shows, Dj sets, lectures and many recording jobs.

    He is truly a well educated all around audio engineer
