Gary has mastered a number of my recordings in the indie and classical realms, and every single one is a treat for the ears. He has also pre-mastered a handful of my projects for vinyl and they always comeback absolutely flawless. Gary also has a keen understanding of various genres of music which is absolutely invaluable these days. Thanks!
What Gary did to my audio is nothing short of magic. He saved my album and my film when time was getting short and everything seemed lost.Gary is my hero. He has the golden ears,a precise brain and a big heart, all working together to bring the best out of your music. Impossible is not Gary Hobish, he is the man for any audio situation.
Gary did a terrific job with my debut album The Perambulator. He was familiar with all the genres on it-- 60's/70's rock and soul pop, garage rock, cabaret, early new wave, glam rock, americana-- and knew exactly what each track needed. He was professional in every way, explained tech issues very well, and, extra bonus-- was also good company.
Gary has great ears and he used his mad skills to bring out the best sound for my CD of solo violin music. In addition to his technical expertise, he is also a musician, and he brings his musicality and breadth of experience into his mastering. On another project he did a fantastic job cleaning up a lot of disruptive noises. Highly recommended!
Gary has mastered two albums that I've worked on (so far!) - Here&Now "Coaxed Out From Oxford", and "Shapeshifter Gong- Live" - and I can say, hand on heart, that he's done the most excellent job on both of them, and I know where to come for the next album in the pipeline!
