Handy tips for preparing your songs for Mastering

I’ve been using Phuturetrax’s mastering services for nearly 10 years now for all of my labels, and I’ve always been extremely happy with the quality of service they provides. Don knows just how to get the right amount of warmth, low end, and balance, which helps to make my tracks stand out from the crowd in this overly saturated business.

DJ/Producer/Label Owner

I highly recommend Phuturetrax. Don was referred to me by one of the top recording studios in Los Angeles. His work product was nothing short of superb, and his communication along the way was exceptional. Our band will definitely use him again and will whole-heartedly recommend him to others.

MIXING & PRODUCTION

As you will hear in the audio clips below, I enjoy working in a variety of genres. I love recording full bands at larger studios, then bringing the sessions back to Phuturetrax to do vocals, overdubs and mixing.  Most importantly, I see my role as using my skills and experience to deliver and enhance the vision of the artists I work with.

We have been working with Don & Phuturetrax for over 6 years now. Over that time, we’ve evolved drastically as a band, becoming much more professional since our first set of recordings. Don, on the other hand, has been a superstar since day 1 and has treated us the same. He is extremely proficient on both the engineering and producing fronts, and has helped us expand our sound over time. We’ve worked with plenty of sound engineers over the years and have not met anyone who has given us the time, commitment, or level of excellence that Don has on a consistent basis.

Stu Tails band

My album sounds edgy, modern and professional. Just a tasty amount of effects in just the right places. Don is an artist who understands me as an artist. He mixed my album and unveiled the true sound of my project.

Pete Munday
Singer/Songwriter

Working with Don on our EP was truly an amazing experience. We hired him to mix and master our music, and we also ended up with some great edits and enhancements to our tracks. He mixes the songs according to my requests, but tries to work in a cool little change here and there as he gets comfortable with our songs. Those changes, for the most part, are now part of our songs and significantly elevated their quality. We are DEFINITELY going to work with him again.
