Mastering in Chicago

Post by aerosolska » Fri Jul 21, 2006 11:13 am

Give my friend Slava a shot: www.knightlyproductions.com .
He's just getting started, but he has a good ear, great prices, and he's schooled in music (and math!).

Massive Mastering is good and very affordable!

Hey John!

He mastered one of my albums (Formaldehyde Sleep). Did a great job! ....just wish it would have been released!
Blah!

Dead thread, but there's a list of Chicago/IL mastering places and other local recording resources on my web site if folks are interested. (Look under links).

Why does it have to be local?

Post by inflatable » Tue Sep 12, 2006 10:02 am

More often than not I send it off to be mastered in another city/state. I live in So Cali and have had stuff mastered in NY, San Francisco, etc. It usually isn't my decision and I'm not going to attend the session anyway, so why the need to have it local? I've even uploaded single tracks to mastering houses before.

We used http://www.patrickdoody.com/ for our CD last year, he's in Tinley Park. Probably the first time he's had to deal with ukuleles.
