    I have worked with many mastering engineers over the past couple years with mixed results. The search stopped with Tim. The quality of attention to detail that Tim offers is the best I know.

    Tim is my go to guy. He listens to what we need and delivers with multiple options. He's always ready to work with us on tight deadlines as well. Most of all Tim gets it. He knows industry trends in audio, he understandings the technical aspect not all mastering guys know.

    Tim is very deadicated to his craft and very easy to work with. It's no wonder he was the first co-pilot not assistant but co-pilot that I truly trusted with my clients. I miss his humor and easy going demeanor. Having worked with so many great engineers while at Masterdisk he is a great choice for all of your mastering needs.

    As executive producer of NYC's "The Pipes of Christmas," all I can say is that Tim's professional assistance with audio was a complete game changer for our audience experience. Deftly managing the wide ranging audio dynamics of big bagpipe and brass down to the intimacy of harp and fiddle is not for amateurs. Tim gets it and he cares about the work. He also mastered our 1st CD, "The Best of the Pipes of Christmas" and again brought deep care and attention to mastering a collection of live recordings into a beautiful artistic work. Can't recommend him enough. www.pipesofchristmas.com

Interview with Tim Boyce : NYC Mastering

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: The Great Gatsby Soundtrack --- it was under intense deadlines, and HUGE pressure with the director (Baz Luhrmann) listening to tracks in England and sending notes in middle of the night.. . . . I assisted for Tony Dawsey and we ended up getting 3x Grammy nominations that year for that record. :) Felt good

  3. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  4. A: I bring Emotional connection : : : I can finesse a track to really connect with the listener. That is what makes music that you're still proud of in 10-years. .

  5. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  6. A: I make music have IMPACT and Depth. Lots of QC, and care to detail .... It's not done until you're dancing in your chair, and emotionally feeling the song. It should get under your skin to where you can't stop thinking about it

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: There is a time and a place for both ... Analog for depth, digital for tightness. I'm a beta-tester for many hardware and software companies ... so the equipment/software I work with daily is what will be available next year to the rest of the industry. Sounds Good to be ahead of the curve

  9. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  10. A: Trust your ears and your instincts ... if you think something feels good, so will your fans. Trust your Art.

  11. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  12. A: in 2008 I started at Masterdisk in NYC. I first worked alongside Dave McNair, and Randy Merrill in Greg Calbi's original mastering room (assisting and after-hours building up my clients base) Then I moved as an assistant to Scott Hull who was working in Bob Ludwig's original room.. from there I moved to working with Tony Dawsey and Roger Lian in MD3 (the third room) as a staff engineer and Tonys assistant. I also had the good fortune to work with Andy VanDette, Vlado Meller daily ... A real powerhouse team of epic engineers, and I learned so much from them during that time. .. Since I have developed my own sound and style of working, but the influence of working alongside the worlds best ME's greatly influence my final product. I will be forever grateful for their generosity in mentoring my development

  13. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  14. A: My communication and my decision making

  15. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  16. A: Highly modified Analog gear. I'm very critical of plug-ins ... only 3-4 have the depth of sonics that I demand from my equipment. There is a balance between vintage tone (Sontec's, clean 1950's tubes) for depth .. and tightness for a clean modern sound (Weiss DS-1, etc..) The entire chain works together .. it's not just one or two pieces, at the end of the day I am a Systems Designer and this system simply sounds outstanding! I'm very proud of the synergy in these very rare and well maintained pieces working together.
