My aim is to effectively enhance your music by accentuating its strengths, addressing potential issues, and achieving the optimal balance between dynamic range and competitive loudness.  This will ensure that it sounds clear and consistent across a wide array of listening environments and performance applications.  I have experience working with a variety of electronic styles, and understand the importance of catering my approach to meet the specific needs of each project.

I’ll provide feedback and let you know if there are any adjustments that would best be made on your end.  Please feel encouraged to include a reference track to give me an idea of what you’re after, and I’m always open to your input so we can be sure you come away feeling confident and inspired.

THE PROCESS:

  • Mid/Side EQ
  • Stereo Imaging
  • Multi-Band Dynamics
  • Peak Compression
  • Analog Model EQ
  • Harmonic Enhancement
  • Limiting

FILE PREPARATION:

– Bypass any processing on the master channel / do not normalize

– Please provide 3-6dB of headroom / no clipping

– Clearly name your files by artist, track, and mix name

– 32 / 24bit WAV or AIFF files at the sample rate of your project

– Upload zipped files up to 2GB’s via WeTransfer

Torin did an amazing job on my Above & Beyond remix.  Still to this day it is one of the best sounding songs I have.  Every time I send him something I know it’s in the right hands!

EXAMPLES

AKATE

“I can’t be more happy with the work Torin has done, he has really pumped life into the tracks. They are now sounding rich, wide and punchy, with warm lows and crisp highs. Achieving a high volume while not compromising the dynamics or quality of the sound in any way.

I feel like he has really understood the vibe of the tracks and has enhanced them perfectly without losing any of the initial intention along the way. Crystallizing them into their final form and literally blowing me away on my first listen. I’m always quite uncertain with my work and now I’m finally able to listen to it without so much of a critical ear! 

All of this while being close, friendly and there always being a genuine feeling of wanting to work together to get the best results.

Big Gratitude.”

MOMENTOLOGY

"Working with Torin has been a pleasure. Years ago I heard his electronic music project Bird of Prey and was in awe at the production and sound quality. When I found myself working with him years later I was blown away - someone who I once admired in the music industry is now working on my music! I had the pleasure to work with him on two music projects and the work he did was spectacular. Everything was clean, well rounded, and uniform to the rest of the music industry in those genres, which is very important to me"

PHOTON A.D.

"Ascended Mastering is my favorite mastering service I have used. Communication with Torin was very clear and fast. The delivered product was of exceptional quality. There were a few mistakes on my side of the mix, but I was shown great customer service and provided additional revisions and feedback. The master is absolutely stunning and crafted with obvious expertise. I will definitely be coming back for future releases."

WATTSUN

"Really impressed with the quality of Torin's service! I've tried close to a dozen different mastering engineers over the last couple years, and no one has been able to elevate my music like this. He has a very well developed ear with technical skills to match. Highly recommend!"

KINETIC DISTORTION

"Torin really knows his craft, the warmth and energy he added to my album solidified why I am going to hire him as my mastering engineer in future projects."

SACRED ALCHEMY

"Torin's ear and attention to detail was exactly what I was looking for to get the most out of my music. His quick responses and flexibility to modify and experiment with various mixdowns makes him my mastering engineer of choice. It was such a pleasant surprise to find an engineer who truly loves his work and takes the time to really listen to your tracks and tailor his processing to match them. Thanks again Torin."

STRATUSPHERE

"Torin is a cosmic blessing, and an absolute pleasure to work with. His talents are clearly heard in the masters that I have from him. He was willing to do multiple revisions without losing his cool, which is a welcome rarity from my previous experience. He is willing to get things how you want them, while adding beneficial sonic qualities you may not have thought of going into it. Even though we have not met in person yet, his energy is felt very strongly and it is something the world needs more of. I will be recommending Torin to my fellow producer friends for years to come. Thanks again Torin for coming through with a comfortable and professional approach to the mastering process."

LIVING LIGHT

"Three cheers for Ascended Mastering!
I came to Torin for stem mastering as he has one of the very best ears in the biz. Sure enough, he got my tracks sounding like a box of Krispy Kreme donuts : crisp and clear in the highs, and warm and full in the lows and mids. I feel these are some of the best basslines I've ever written, and he's got them sounding round and warm and punchy and ~perfect!~ I will definitely be bringing all of my music to his skillfully trained ears and expertise for every release from here on out."
