Mastering Process

I aim for timeless masters that have impact, clarity, and dynamism .

I use a hybrid of analog and digital processing with my focus being primarily on the analog side with equalization and compression. A lot of time has been spent perfecting my monitoring and learning my equipment to give your music the best possible sound. My chain is  wired point to point with short run cables with hard bypasses for maximum fidelity in the transfer path.

All genres welcome.
