You produce electronic music. We engineer electronic music. Let's work together!
Black Ghost Audio is an audio engineering studio based out of Winnipeg, MB. To submit a song for mastering please visit our website (https://www.blackghostaudio.com). Mixing, production, beat making and sound design inquiries can all be submitted through SoundBetter.
Charles, our head engineer, realized that many of his peers were being overlooked by blogs, labels and management companies, simply because the audio quality of their otherwise fantastic songs, couldn't compete within the industry. Intent on propelling artists forward in their careers, Charles founded Black Ghost Audio.
After graduating from the University of Manitoba with an English degree, Charles continued his education at Icon Collective; a prestigious music production school, based out of Los Angeles, CA. Obsessed with perfection, it was there that he worked tirelessly to learn how to produce EDM at a professional level.

Interview with Black Ghost Audio
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Getting to work with my clients! I have people sending me awesome music all the time and it's an honour to get to work with them.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Make sure your arrangement and sound design are on point. Those are a couple things I have very little control over, but are arguably some of the most important components of your track.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Current. I'm a young guy working in the industry with other young artists. I understand the most current EDM trends and I know how to help my clients achieve the sound they want.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Professionalism. I'm constantly handed tracks that sound as if they were produced in a bedroom (often times they are). I specialize in taking these types of tracks and helping them reach and industry standard level.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I made it really easy for clients to submit their music for mastering through my website, so the most common type of work I do is mastering.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Analog is great in many situations, but we choose to do all of our work in-the-box. The reason for this is that the current sound of EDM is a very digital sound. The majority of the biggest EDM artists aren't running their tracks through racks of analog gear, because they're not looking for that analog character. This is one of many reasons we've opted to stay digital as well.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started writing electronic music in 2012. After graduating from the University of Manitoba with an English degree, I continued my education at Icon Collective; a music production school, based out of Los Angeles, CA.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Less is more. I often get projects that are completely destroyed by over-processing. Make sure to go back and turn off your processing to make sure it's helping, and not hurting your track.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: The music I've been working on lately is everything from trap bangers and dubstep tracks all the way to minimal house. It's really all over the place.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Mastering is the service that's being pushed the hardest right now, but after having attended school for music production at Icon Collective, I'm equipped to handle pretty much anything a client throws at me.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Regardless of the project, my work process starts with listening. I'll listen to what I've been given and I'll listen to other music. I'll compare the two and make a plan of how to get from point A to point B.
