AudibleOddities on SoundBetter

AudibleOddities was founded in San Francisco during the late 90's by multi-Grammy, Fryderyk, & JUNO nominated, and ADISQ/SOCAN winning mastering engineer, Shawn Hatfield. Passionate about the science and emotion of sound, Shawn’s been fully immersed as a mastering engineer for over 25 years.

With thousands of albums, billions of streams, and decades worth of experience working for both major and indie labels on virtually every style of music, Shawn has the ear for today’s current trends in mastering, balanced with an understanding of both modern and past technique.

Never content with just being good at what he does, he works tirelessly in the pursuit of perfection, spending countless hours honing his craft, always in search of ways to refine and enhance his process. For Shawn, mastering isn’t just technical prowess. It’s an unquantifiable blend of emotion and technique. He cares deeply about mastering and sees each and every project as highly important regardless of whether it’s a major artist or someone just starting out. So it’s no surprise he always goes the extra mile to make sure everything is as good as it can possibly be. If you take just a few moments to read some of the testimonials on the AO website, you’ll realize why so many artists choose Shawn to put that final touch on their music.

  1. Review by Steven Z. @ Desert Soundworks

    Shawn was responsive, accommodating, and made my tracks sound amazing. My masters had the fullness and dynamic punch I was looking for, without compromising the overall sonic quality of my final mixes. I would highly recommend Shawn if you have electronic music to master.

    Shawn did an excellent work on my tracks. He always answered to my question and give me feedback to achieve the best result possible. He has always been reactive even if we are thousand kilometers far. Highly recommended!!!
