About:

Greetings, my name is Zach and I am an audio engineer and musician currently residing north of Boston, Massachusetts. I have been working professionally as a a freelance mastering engineer for the past seven years, touching upon albums of any and all genres (anywhere from top 40 pop to grindcore), and have been in the audio engineering field well over ten years with recording and/or mastering credits on 250+ releases.
As of 2018, I am now working at GodCity Studio in Salem, Massachusetts.

There is (usually) no project too small nor too large for me to take on and I aim to offer my services at affordable prices for my clients. I am always looking to work with new, wonderful clientele and help any artist accomplish and fully realize the exact vision they have for their recorded material. In the mastering stage, a lot can be achieved beyond shaping the final sound of the audio recording in question. Thus I strive to produce a master recording which not only 100% meets the desired results and expectations of the client, but also serves as a perfect representation of the project to their exact specifications.

My mastering services include (but are not limited to):

  • Standard digital mastering
  • Digital mastering optimized for streaming services
  • Vinyl-sides pre-mastering optimized for record pressing
  • Pre-mastering optimized for other analog audio formats
  • Stem mastering
  • DDP CD mastering
  • "Mastered for iTunes" file formatting
  • Restoration, transfer, and re-mastering for audio recordings of various sources (tape, DAT, reel to reel)

...among various other solutions.

Though my assumed forte is usually in the field of mastering, my skill-set as an engineer is very versatile and I also enjoy engineering, mixing, and producing larger-scale recording projects. Feel free to shoot me an email about your record and we can discuss the creative process, options, and anything else you are looking to accomplish.

I have a more detailed account of my engineering history written here if you wish to know more about me and my background.

I also work for audio electronics company Electronic Audio Experiments building guitar pedals. I enjoy repairing and servicing guitar amplifiers (and other audio electronics) in my free time and I have a page dedicated to that here. As a musician, I've played and written with Cerce and Animal Flag in recent years.


Rates:

I don't have set-in-stone flat or hourly rates because I believe in deciding upon a price-point which is fair to both the client and myself. Likewise, every project has a different set of requirements and I don't think a flat rate is appropriate in that context. Contact me through this form with details about your record, budget, and what you're trying to do and we can figure out pricing based upon what you are trying to accomplish with the project as a whole.
