    Duggan recently mastered the first release for my new project Marceline, and they absolutely killed it! I was very happy with the mixes, but Duggan really took them to the next level. There is so much more depth, clarity, and punch to the songs after mastering. Duggan is also an absolute pleasure to work with. They are very easy to communicate with and got things back to us very quickly. I would recommend them to anyone needing professional quality masters.

    Sea_wraith mastered an LP created by a friend named horrorscene and I, and a new track called Cxp killer. He did a very nice job on all of it. He does a nice job cleaning our mixes up and he’s always able to make all of the kick drums bump a lot harder. I would recommend him for any of your mastering and editing work.

    Duggan was an absolute pleasure to work with. They were responsive and organized and turned everything around super fast. Most importantly, I was blown away when listening to the masters. They came out better than I could have imagined. I will be a repeat client without a doubt.

    Duggan was so great to work with! I love the organization of having an intake form and that reference tracks were requested. I had them master a techno track of mine and it came out boomy, yet sparkly clean. The quick turn-around was great too!

    Sea_Wraith does amazing mastering... the clarity, the spacing, the punch.... it is hard to explain without hearing it. Sea_Wrait has amazing ears and talent. Appreciate it and will be a return client. Amazing communication, prices, and so friendly. A+ highly recommended. Feel free to ask me any questions or for a direct reference!

    Sea is absolutely incredible. From the first contact, my entire mastering experience has been seamless and straightforward. Because I didn’t have much in mind of how I actually wanted my masters to sound, I asked Sea to take complete creative control. When I played the masters on my monitors, I was completely blown away! I highly recommend their services and look forward to teaming up with them in the near future!

    Working with Duggan has been amazing, the mastering on my tracks blew my mind on how good they were. So good that now I send everything to Duggan monthly. Really nice person and very understanding in what you want

    Working with Duggan was such an amazingly positive experience. They are super kind and sweet on top of being very very organized, responsive, and professional to work with! Additionally we were SO impressed with the way our tracks turned after mastering, they clearly have a refined ear for this sort of production work. Would recommend 1000%.

    So much respect for this engineer. They made sure that every aspect was met even doing some changes when I needed the changes done. The sound was exactly like what I heard in my head and it felt like they actually tried to understand the process of the Album =). I am more than happy working with this engineer

    The work done on this track was phenomenal. I was already satisfied with my original (unmixed) version, but now I am in LOVE with my song. The bass is so much punchier and the rest of the track is smooth and perfectly balanced. Looking forward to using Sea Wraith for the rest of my songs from here on out. Well worth your money and extremely professional, as well as timely. Thank you!

    I have been extremely happy with the work that sea_wraith has done on my tracks. I have been producing experimental, indie, and techno for over 10 years and can't say enough about finding somebody that has a good ear and talent that actually enjoys and plays the type of music that I want to create. I am very happy that we crossed paths. I will be working with sea_wraith again and again in the future and it will be critical to the success of my current project, the ability to make my tracks sound the way they are supposed to is magic.
