Over the last 10-15 years I have developed a proprietary process that achieves the same quality results as the major mastering
houses but without requiring deep pockets or the remortgaging of homes or the selling of kidneys. As an independent artist myself,
I chose to rebel against the staggering costs of high priced mastering and that's why I started INDIE AUDIO MASTERING.

I will treat your music as if it were my own. I never over-book myself and each daily session is spent on only one client. This allows me to really hear what your music needs to reach its full potential. I don't employ the one size fits all mentality. I listen and tailor adjustments for each track making sure they are sonically the best they can be individually as well as how they will go together collectively. With over 20 years of recording engineering experience I can also bring a unique perspective to your project as a mix consultant to help get your music ready for audio mastering.
I take my time and do it right!
My mastering suite is tuned and outfitted with high quality in and out of the box tools that include outboard pro converters and clocking, analog tube compression, proprietary harmonic balancing tools, all the high end software the expensive folks use as well as a three stage playback ref system [Critical > Commercial > Consumer] providing you with a great sounding master.
My best piece of gear though are my ears! You can have all the gear in the world but without a good pair of ears and knowledge
of how to correctly apply selective compression, root bass note elimination, frequency analysis, 2nd & 3rd order harmonic manipulation, stereo field treatment or finding those frequencies for an instrument within a final mix for enhancement or attenuation...all you're really getting is someone that will take what you've done and simply make it louder without really understanding what they're doing. Stay away from $15-$20 per song mastering...that's not mastering. That's a preset.
My mastering has been A/B'd against some of the best Nashville and New York heavy weights in the biz and more often than not selected as the better master or at a minimum just as good. These are the $150 to $200 per song or $1,000 to $1,200 per album mastering houses that cater to major label artists and that's fine, but I pride myself in bringing this same level of quality to independent artists because I am one myself.
I take a very comprehensive and consultative approach towards serving the music my fellow artists create. I will be in constant contact with you and most times I send clients two different versions to consider. Especially if I hear the possibility in the music to be treated via two different approaches. Let me show you what I can do. You won't be sorry!
