Piper Payne - Infrasonic Sound on SoundBetter

I am a Mastering Engineer at Infrasonic Mastering in Nashville, TN and Oakland, CA. I'm a Trustee of the SF Chapter of the Recording Academy. I'm also an active member of the AES, Women's Audio Mission, and I lecture about audio to all who listen! I am deeply in the vinyl industry as well. I enjoy being a nice person and running a good business.

I have two degrees in Classical Recording/Audio Engineering, so I take a "give it only what it needs" approach to my mastering work. I honor the original intentions of the mix, but make sure that it is technically correct and ready for manufacturing -- which is really what Mastering is about!

My mastering console is all outboard, analog, and I work on individual tracks in real time. Feel free to ask any questions about my process or approach.

My room is a purpose built mastering room, tuned specifically for my ears, and here at Infrasonic, we have a fantastic lathe, ready to cut lacquer for your next vinyl project.

Mastering is what I do... Keep me in mind for your next project!

I also offer free consultations/reviews and virtual attended sessions. Contact me for more details on this. My rates are based on program minutes of content, so when you inquire, please let me know the running time of the project.

    On time delivery, and NAILED the mastering of my song on the first version. Maybe Piper can somehow read my mind who knows!
