The best of
analog and digital
since 1974

Lacquer Channel Mastering has it’s mid-1970s roots in Toronto’s Yorkville and Scarborough areas. The studio was started with a idea that world-class mastering can be acheived in Canada and we’ve maintained that philosophy. Using the best analog and digital gear in purpose built studios, all three of our senior engineers each have 20+ years of experience. We treat every mastering job like it’s our own music. Masetering is all we do. It’s what we care about most.
