Why we win awards
Handcrafted Music Mastering
You’ve spent time and care working on your craft, and it deserves the best.
We’ve worked with some of the most well-known musicians in the UK, and bring that experience to all the work we do. We don’t do average. We craft 100% handmade, 100% British music masters. A song has never left our studio without sounding just right, and our research shows that our masters receive over 16x more listens than AI masters.
All our masters are analog, tape masters. We use our own custom-built analog electronics and digital audio processors to give you a sound you can’t get anywhere else. What’s more, every master we do is run through our custom-built Studer A80 tape machine.
Whether you’re launching on streaming services, CD or other physical formats, you need your music mastered right.
Our custom Studer A80 tape machine takes the digits out of digital mastering. Smooth, warm and punchy.
Machines don’t understand music. We do. Breathe new life into old, damaged, noisy or flawed audio.
