Brian iele includes a FREE audio quality report on the mastering service that really helps you to get the most out of your mixes before mastering. Send us one unmastered mix and you will get a complete audio quality report in 48 hours.

We have found that most of the problems presented by a less than perfect mix can´t be fixed in mastering, so we invest almost as much time to review the audio quality of the mixes as to the mastering process itself. A Mix review process renders overwhelmingly superior quality mixes before even initiating the mastering stage.
Studio gear is important, but experience and good judgement, as well as full involvement in every project are also key offerings. We are committed to be 100% responsive to your needs.

- Audio Mastering for every format, in stereo and surround 5.1: Vinyl, CD, DVD, Blu-Ray, iTunes (MFiT)
- Mix Coaching (can also be hired separately from our mastering services)
- Seminars and workshops available under request in English and Spanish - Please contact us.

    I just finished my fourth project with Brian to date and I plan on continuing coming back and getting my songs mastered by him for all of my upcoming projects as well. He really cares and goes above and beyond to get the perfect product for you. He's super talented, has an amazing ear and is super punctual and professional. Also, one of the things that makes him so unique is the mix feedback he gives you to tweak before he masters ––I haven't seen others offer this but it's a huge game changer!

    Extremely Happy Customer

    The reason I will continue to work with Brian is twofold. First he did the best job mastering my music but just as important he took the time to review/critique the song and suggest what he felt should be changed before he worked on the song.
    I had 3 different engineers master the same song and Brian was the only one who did this. I would have expected it from anyone who Masters/Mixes for a living but it was not the case. This is why his final master sounds the best o

    Would highly recommend Brian as a mastering engineer! Despite such a reasonable price, he went so far above and beyond to get my track sounding amazing (and I'm very picky). Thank you so much for everything, Brian!

    Brian’s ears are wonderfully apt and the touch of his engineering is thoughtful and doesn’t over-assert itself. I had a really good time working together with him.

    Brian is the best. He took my very poor quality recording and made it special. He’s a great guy and very talented.

Interview with Brian iele (SCS Mastering)

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: Shoot the radio, "Opera Galaxy", was a good project and has won the Gardel Award in Argentina. I'm proud of that one. But i already did a couple of albums after that, that i like a lot too.

  3. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  4. A: Many projects every week from different parts of the world. Thrilling and inspiring

  5. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  6. A: Not yet. Maybe we should get together more often.

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: Anything that sounds "right" for the song. Both most of the times. Normally i take the time to compare different options

  9. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  10. A: The fact that it doesn't feel like working. Really.

  11. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  12. A: That miracles are included with the job. :)

  13. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  14. A: For mastering clients we ask for mixes audition before 100% completion so we can suggest technical changes that could help the final process.

  15. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  16. A: Be sure to give the engineer all the input you can about your proyect and expectations. I think that is the best way to get the results you are seeking.

  24. A: No "Typical" process, every song is a different word and needs possibly an unique approach.

  25. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  26. A: My monitoring system. A console. My ears. A chair. A bottle of wine.

  27. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  28. A: judgement to understand what it needs.

  29. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  30. A: Judgement when mastering. When mixing, I prefer my Job to speak for itself.
