Jack Kosto on SoundBetter

I'm a mixing and mastering engineer, guitarist for Seven Spires and Threads of Fate, and Berklee College of Music graduate. I specialize in metal and rock mixing and mastering. I'm a one man operation, so I keep prices affordable and don't stop until you're 100% happy with your record!

I specialize specifically in metal and heavier rock music, as that's what I personally love. In addition to recording on quite a few albums and EPs as a guitarist, I've been studying the art of recording and mixing heavy music for many years, and I'm passionate about making massive, polished sounding recordings, but while keeping the organic nature and feel of real instruments and real players. Additionally, even though I mostly work "in the box" due to my travel schedule, I LOVE the sound and vibe of analog gear, and do my best to work as "analog" as possible while in a digital world.

I'm also often working with Symphonic/Orchestral textures in metal, with my own bands as well as for other clients, so if you're putting together a hugely dense arrangement and don't have the skill, time, or objectivity to mix it yourself, I'm very happy to assist!

I pride myself in being friendly, flexible, and easy to work with, so don't hesitate to reach out with questions, for a specialized quote, or for a (free) test mix or master.

    At this point, there isn't a single song I've worked on over the past year or two that Jack hasn't touched in some way. As someone who records and mixes music myself, I'm probably much more picky about who I can trust will deliver great results from what I send them. In the few cases where there is a miscommunication between the artist's vision, and Jack's interpretation of how the mix should sound, he is quick to make adjustments to satisfy the client, and will continue tweaking until you are more than satisfied.

    I worked with Jack on my last record and I can say he is awesome to work with! He deliver fast mixes that always sound amazing, and he is super open for feedbacks and he will always make sure to make the client happy with the final result. Great price for the final product! His master are also insanely good! He is able to really enhance the mix that was already great!

    Also, he has the most important thing as a producer/engineer, he has great taste on his choices! Therefore, I really believe you should consider him to mix/master your record! He is kindly enough to do a free mix/master test!

    MINISTER OF PAIN: I have worked with Jack for past (2) years. With regard to mastering; Jack Kosto clearly has a solid technical foundation. But the value that sets him apart from others, is his ability to understand the vibe that the artist ultimately desires. He then uses his technical knowledge to execute and delivers a high quality finish every time. For all of the effort that goes into a production, I won't put mastering into anyone else's hands. No others. No way! I would recommend Jack for any genre. You won't be disappointed. JB

    I can't say enough when it comes to Jack. Absolutely brilliant player, writer and engineer.He truly has a relentless passion for what he does. I have the distinct honor of being involved with Jack in a musical endeavor where he co-writes, handles the guitars and also does the mixing and mastering and I must say... His work ethic and professionalism are unmatched, and he is an absolute genius with sound. I simply cannot recommend him enough.

    By far the BEST person to have Mix/Master your album. I've worked with Jack on multiple records and multiple sessions and he is easily the only guy I will call to mix/master my records. VERY affordable and will work until you are 100% satisfied. Also always meets the deadline.
