It is said that it takes 10,000 hours to master any particular skill. You can put your trust in an engineer who has spent those hours and then some. Beginning in Logic pro over a decade ago, I've spent countless hours in studios crafting compelling mixes and defining masters. I offer mixes and masters that cut through speakers and pop.
I offer remote mixing and mastering. Email/upload your stems and a description of what you want and we can work together to craft a professional, compelling, quality mix that will simplify the mastering process. Afterwards you can either take your mix to a third party for mastering or have the mastering process done by me as well.
I also edit sound for podcast making it clean and crisp. You will not find this quality at such affordable prices anywhere else.
