CD-AUDIO MASTERING, using both the traditional stereo 2-track mastering process, and our unique process, HD Separation Mastering, is the amazing final step your music takes before manufacturing and digital distribution.

Grammy-Nominated, Gold and Platinum projects have come from the touch that John Vestman brings to every project. Over 35 years of experience and amazing equipment gives the sonic edge that makes your music come alive.

HD Separation Mastering creates more width and natural dynamics, more transparency, better pin-point imaging, clean bass and a less "slammed" sonic character. Here's why it sounds better and why it is perfecty suited for the Apple certified Mastered For iTunes high-definition (MFiT) iTunes format.
