Torin is regarded as a pioneer in the realm of psychedelic bass music, with a unique style and keen attention to detail.

With 20 years of experience in the field, my aim is to provide impeccable service and value to producers and labels of all genres.

potential issues, and achieving the optimal balance between dynamic range and competitive loudness. This will ensure it sounds clear and consistent across a wide array of listening environments and performance applications. I have experience working with a variety of 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.

STEREO MASTER RATE :
"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!"
- Seven Lions
“Torin’s masters are crisp, clear, and keep the dynamic of each song the way I envision it. His way of bringing loudness with keeping that dynamic is really special and out of the ordinary “loud as you can go” style. The turn around time was also extremely quick, in a timely manner you could tell he takes his time with each song to make sure it gets the attention and detail needed. I’ll always recommend Torin.“
"Torin’s audio engineering and production skills are some of the best in the field, and that’s why we call on him in the first place. Thanks bud!"
- Desert Dwellers
"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."
- Sacred Alchemy
"I came to Torin for mixing and 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 will definitely be bringing all of my music to his skillfully trained ears and expertise for every release from here on out."
