Piper Payne at Neato Mastering on SoundBetter

I am the owner and Chief Mastering Engineer at Neato Mastering in Oakland, CA. I'm the President of the SF Chapter of the Recording Academy. I'm also an active member of the AES, Women's Audio Mission, and is an Audio Engineering Professor. 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.

My room is a purpose built mastering room, tuned specifically for my ears.

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.

Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.
