Blackler Mastering on SoundBetter

Celebrating 12 years of quality mastering in Brooklyn this year. Formerly of Sony Music Studios, NY. Very diverse discography specializing in musicality, dynamics, and good taste.

An exceptional listening room with exceptional engineers, Blackler Mastering was built in the ashes of Sony Music Studios, NY in 2007 upon the announcement of the studio closing. The room was re-built to the same dimensions as it was at Sony in Manhattan and the same acoustic principles designed by world renowned acoustician George Ausperger are present in addition to top notch loudspeakers, DA's / AD's, Clocks, EQ's, Compressors, restoration software, etc.

We also offer advise along the way on mixes as they are being finished (if possible), which helps for better sounding masters and a better understanding of what our clients are going for.

The rates are the same for attended / unattended sessions and there are no additional fees for different formats such as MFiT masters, Vinyl Premasters, Wav, MP3, DDP, etc., as well as revisions to the finished masters (up to two revisions per song if necessary). These are all included in a flat-rate quote based on # of songs and what is involved.

Endorse Blackler Mastering
  1. Review by Kirk Bromley

    I can't recommend Kevin highly enough. He's mastered every album I've done (8 and counting) because 1) he is an absolute perfectionist and will not/cannot release an album until it's completely balanced, 2) he's always improving his software/hardware so that he not only has the most high end options but he can also call up a wide array of tools to specialize his product, and 3) his unique ability as a musician/mixer gives him a depth of musical understanding and listening that is second to none. Kevin truly hears music at a whole other level and will make your music sound amazing.

    I've owned and operated the independent label 3rd Generation Recordings based in Brooklyn, NY for 10 years and since meeting and bringing my first project to Kevin he's been my go-to guy for every record we've released since. His ethic, attention to detail, and passion for tackling the challenges presented by each project is inspiring and it's always a pleasure to attend sessions to work with him in person. His willingness to give mix feedback when necessary has been very helpful along the years and I look forward to working on many more projects with him down the line.
