What We Do

MIXING

Contrary to popular belief mixing isn't about EQ or effects. It's about understanding your vision for the song and bringing that vision to life. We specialize in Mixing so you can focus on creating music that resonates with your fans. Learn more.

MASTERING

Mastering is about balance across a song or an album's entire audio spectrum. Too often I hear, "Why do I have to master? I'm already peaking at 0db." That's not the same thing. Mastering can make or break your record. Visit our Mastering page for more info.

FINISHING

Not satisfied with your mix or master, but don't want to redo either process? Do you have vocals or instruments that don't quite have that sparkle, body or punch? We are exceptional at giving your music that finishing touch. Contact us.

An industry leader of online digital Mixing and Mastering in the independent music community.

"Design everything. If you're responsible for the artist's experience then you're responsible for designing the brand, the food and wine, the environment, as well as the mix."

- Manny Marroquin

 

We feel that music is about connecting with emotions, not equipment. It’s about being one with an audience. They don’t care about technical details; only production people do. But we’re not trying to engage those people. We're trying to deliver the best sonic art to your most rabid fans.

- David A. Lopez
