The studio was started with a idea that world-class mastering can be achieved 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.
