    What else is left to say about Tim Boyce? He has mastered 2 out of my last 3 tracks so far and each time he has offered two versions to choose from. Both versions are great!

    The 3rd song that was mastered elsewhere? It just wasn't the same. If you're feeling skeptical, go with Tim. A five-star professional, I'll be going to him with all my mastering needs - you should too.

    I have had quite the struggle finding mastering engineers that are true to the craft & in support of an artist/producer's creative intentions. Tim personally called me on the phone to assure me that he was coming from a long line of mastering engineers & takes the craft seriously. The real gem throughout this entire process was that Tim was entirely committed & willing to go the extra mile when I was leery, only to deliver major label level results. He's almost too good to be this accessible!

    Tim was excellent -- friendly, professional, and extremely prompt with messaging and delivering the final tracks. Most importantly, he captured the sound I was looking for; the masters are louder and clearer than anything I could ever produce but they still have all the dynamics, detail, and grit that I put into the mix. Highly recommend, I will definitely use his services again in the future.

    Tim is truly a master at his craft. I came to him with a track that honestly wasn’t mixed all that well, and he turned it into exactly what I had asked for; A 70’s Soul sound with lush strings and crispy Led Zeppelin drums. His attention to detail is extremely admirable, and his approach is extremely intelligent. Look no further if you want your masters to bang hard, have deep bass, while still retaining a lot of dynamics.

    Working with Tim was awesome! For years I tried algorithmic mastering and I was never that happy with the results. On this record, I decided to splurge on a professional. Not sure what exactly he did or how he did it, but what I do know is that the songs sound warmer and louder, all the levels and volumes are consistent, and there is a little magic in the tracks that was not there before. Tim is a Beast and I hope to work with him again soon. Thank you for making this record come to life!

    Tim is a real talent & 100% professional, easy to work with. He made our songs really stand out, without talking about it too much he understood what the songs need and made our mixes sound banging but retaining the non-fatigue factor (excatly what we wanted for our energetic rock album).. The sound has a natural vibe also to it, but has a modern sound. Technical wise, the most time we spent on this master was us (the band) deciding on stuff, he always delivered very fast and on point with what we asked for. Conversation wise, everything is very clear and in detail, he has patience. Recommend!

    Tim is solid. I have sent projects to him more than once and I will continue to send future projects his way.

    On top of expedient and precise work, Tim was very open to any comments, but more importantly questions I had. Accomplished what we set out to do. Could not have asked for anything else. Worked with me in more ways than one. Grateful and appreciative for Tim's contribution.

    It was an absolute pleasure working with Tim to master the first single on my new EP. His turnaround was fast and he was extremely responsive to my feedback. I was hesitant to use SoundBetter for mastering services but the quality of the files Tim produced have put me at ease. He helped bring my track to the next level and he'll definitely be seeing more work from me in the immediate future.

    Tim is amazing at what he does. I am an amateur when it comes to mixing & mastering, and Tim was patient and professional enough to help me with what I needed. His prices are very reasonable, and he makes the musical experience very enjoyable with his positive and can do attitude. I recommend him to other independent artist such as myself who is all new to getting your music heard on a wider platform. I look forward to working with him again for future projects.

    Tim is pretty incredible... Do not hesitate to use him... Period!

    I had just spent months working on a disco/house cover which needed some sizzle and movement to bring it to life and give it "that vibe".

    Tim sprinkled his magic and its really pops now, it is exactly what I hoped for... All of sudden after hearing it a million times whilst making it, I want to listen to over...I cant tell you happy I am. He is now my go to Mastering Pro, and make no mistake he is exactly that...

    Thanks Tim!

    Tim is a consummate mastering professional. He widened my record’s stereo field, focused and enhanced the low end, eq’d tastefully so that my vocals sat better in my mixes, and increased loudness without making my mixes sound colorless and squashed. I also had the pleasure of sitting in for a few hours on the session, and he was generous with answers to my questions. He has world-class engineering skills and gear. Don’t hesitate to hire him.

    Tim's a pro! I had a very tight deadline but Tim knew exactly what I wanted from the start and did not waste any time to get it done. Can't be happier with the outcome too. Will definitely recommend Tim to anyone in need of mastering services. He's your guy!

    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.

    Tim is a dream to work with. It’s clear he has a deep love and respect for all forms of music and approaches each project with an open mind and a focused objective. He is among the top tier of engineers who bring a perfect balance of passionate artistry and fine-tuned skill to everything he touches.

    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.
