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.

  1. Review by John G.

    Great Job! Thanks' again Brian.

  2. Review by Christina P.

    Brian is fantastic! This was our second time working together and I’m really glad I continued to work with him. He was really patient with me figuring out exactly what I wanted and he delivered. I’m so excited about how great this song sounds!

  3. Review by Christina P.

    Brian is awesome! He was really a pleasure to work with and did a fantastic job balancing what I wanted with his expertise. Could not be happier with the outcome

  4. Review by Christopher K.

    Always a perfect experience working with Brian ––this time was no different. I'll definitely be back again

  5. Review by Christopher K.

    I just finished my fourth project with Brian to date and I plan on continuing coming back and getting my songs mastered by him for all of my upcoming projects as well. He really cares and goes above and beyond to get the perfect product for you. He's super talented, has an amazing ear and is super punctual and professional. Also, one of the things that makes him so unique is the mix feedback he gives you to tweak before he masters ––I haven't seen others offer this but it's a huge game changer!

  6. Review by Brian B.

    Brian has done so much more than just mastering my song. He really listened to the song and my wishes. I am very happy with the end result!

  7. Review by Bassel E.

    Amazing work and communication. Really happy with the result! Thanks.

  8. Review by Marcelina P.

    Really easy to work with, very patient, amazing work!

  9. Review by John G.

    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

  10. Review by Dorcas M.

    Mastering went super well, he is a professional. And listen to what you have to say. Will work with him again.
    La masterizacion fue de lo mejor, es un profesional, escucha lo que tienes que decir y definitivamente trabajaria con el de nuevo.

  11. Review by Dorcas M.

    Great professionalism, i will work with him again

  12. Review by Christopher K.

    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!

  13. Review by Matt V.

    Brian went above and beyond to get my song sounding great. He is extremely talented, timely, and easy to work with. I can not say enough positive things about him.

    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.

    Brian is the best. He took my very poor quality recording and made it special. He’s a great guy and very talented.

    I'd definitely work with him in the future.

  21. Review by Nic A.

    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

  22. Review by christophe Zaleski

    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.

  23. Review by Tyler

    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!

  24. Review by Kendy Gable

    I have had the pleasure to work with Brian on my last two albums. He is reliable and does great work in a timely manner.

  28. Review by gordon raphael

    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

  4. A: Many projects every week from different parts of the world. Thrilling and inspiring
