Our mastering gear selection is rooted in our overall philosophy of “doing no harm” to the incoming sound source. The mix informs us as to exactly what the artist's intentions are, and from there we proceed towards realizing their vision. We have therefore chosen gear that only enhances what we process through it while leaving a minimal footprint except for where it is necessary (as determined by the artist upon the first listen to the master).
