*We don’t do mastering in house, but I have direct access to a few of the very best mastering engineers in the world, have worked with them for decades, and can get them at reasonable rates, which is why I am sometimes able to offer such a low per song price
About pipelineaudio Studios:
I started my career in 1989, training as an engineer working on guitars, amplifiers and sound reinforcement electronics. In 1991 I began studying under Pierre Grill at Rendezvous Recording in Hawai’i, working as a late night audio engineer, primarily for punk and metal bands.
In 1994, I relocated to Arizona, where I took the opportunity to enhance my skills in an area where the industry had much more to offer. My background as a solder jockey who could build connections offered me opportunities in the studio as a tech, and most often, a patch bay and routing builder, working under greats such as Michael Kaye, Jeff Harris and George Augsperger.
I attained an internship after college at Vintage Recorders in Phoenix. I assisted and firsted for such musical giants as Lee Ving from Fear, Sacred Reich, Megadeth, Flotsam and Jetsam, and Dokken. I also worked with the regulars of the studio including Stevie Nicks, Joey DiFrancesco and The Gin Blossoms.
In 1999, I started the pipelineaudio studio. During this time, I began to pursue software solutions to real world and hardware problems; building relationships with Sonic Foundry, Sony, iZotope, and various visionaries of the impossible, and probably most importantly, Wave Machine Labs. I also set up at Vintage Recorders to make impulses of the gear, rooms and reverbs there for the newly emerging convolution reverb technology, which led to the AES_24_96 and pipelineaudio impulses popularized by Noisevault. During this time he released one of the first third party samples for Drumagog as well as the first guitar cabinet Impulse Response, which is now an industry in itself!
In 2006, I teamed up with Justin Frankel and Christophe Thibault to turn their fledgling REAPER Digital Audio Workstation into a product that could be used by professionals, dominating a section of the market which had been almost completely ignored by the existing DAW manufacturers.
