MASTERING

Smoothtone

IT'S ABOUT THE MUSIC!

Smoothtone is a dedicated mastering studio located in Sydney, Australia.

I started my musical career as a guitarist playing in bands from death metal to funk. I wrote my own music from an early age and used whatever I could get my hands on to record it, gradually building up a project studio. In my early 20s I worked as a live sound engineer, honing my skills in high pressure situations. 

In the late '90s I became interested in mastering and mastered albums for bands and artists in the local music scene. I later opened my doors to online clients and now enjoy mastering records for people all over the world. I still love hearing a project for the first time.

I look forward to working with you on your next project.
