analog mixing // digital mastering // lathe-cut vinyl

i offer hybrid analog / digital mixing, mastering, and lathe-cut vinyl records from my studio and workspace in san antonio, tx.

for mixing, i use a 32-input soundcraft ghost le. d/a converters are motu 828x and blackface adat synced to external black lion wordclock. mixdown can be to wav or 1/4" tape.

mastering is mostly done in the box. my goal is to preserve the depth and character of the source material as much as possible, rather than compete for maximum loudness. i also optimize audio for the intended delivery format.

my specialty is producing short runs (ie 1-100) of lathe-cut vinyl records or one-off dubplates for DJs, musicians, and record labels. i make high-quality stereo cuts directly into heavy vinyl (60/180-gram) with a diamond cutting stylus on custom modern equipment. my rates are VERY affordable and turnaround time is usually less than two weeks.

special requests are welcome! please let me know what i can help you with.
