Handy tips for preparing your songs for Mastering

I’ve been using Phuturetrax’s mastering services for nearly 10 years now for all of my labels, and I’ve always been extremely happy with the quality of service they provides. Don knows just how to get the right amount of warmth, low end, and balance, which helps to make my tracks stand out from the crowd in this overly saturated business.

Justin Johnson
DJ/Producer/Label Owner

I highly recommend Phuturetrax. Don was referred to me by one of the top recording studios in Los Angeles. His work product was nothing short of superb, and his communication along the way was exceptional. Our band will definitely use him again and will whole-heartedly recommend him to others.

We have been working with Don & Phuturetrax for over 6 years now. Over that time, we’ve evolved drastically as a band, becoming much more professional since our first set of recordings. Don, on the other hand, has been a superstar since day 1 and has treated us the same. He is extremely proficient on both the engineering and producing fronts, and has helped us expand our sound over time. We’ve worked with plenty of sound engineers over the years and have not met anyone who has given us the time, commitment, or level of excellence that Don has on a consistent basis.

Ryan McDonald
Stu Tails band

My album sounds edgy, modern and professional. Just a tasty amount of effects in just the right places. Don is an artist who understands me as an artist. He mixed my album and unveiled the true sound of my project.

Pete Munday
Singer/Songwriter

Working with Don on our EP was truly an amazing experience. We hired him to mix and master our music, and we also ended up with some great edits and enhancements to our tracks. He mixes the songs according to my requests, but tries to work in a cool little change here and there as he gets comfortable with our songs. Those changes, for the most part, are now part of our songs and significantly elevated their quality. We are DEFINITELY going to work with him again.

FILM/TV/RADIO

Dialog Editing and Enhancement, Noise Reduction, Sweetening, Sound Design… these are just some of the services we offer. Phuturetrax can be the 1-stop shop for all your broadcast and theatrical releases.

Don handled all the post audio for my film, Prime Thickness. From dialog editing/ADR, sound design/foley through to delivering the final mix. The end result was fantastic. We worked remotely- from London to LA.

Nicolas Piere
Producer/Director/Writer

Working with Don at Phuturetrax was a great experience. While working on (my film) “Out Smart” he met all the deadlines within budget, and all with a smile. Working on the sound design for my logo was a blast. He had a lot of creative suggestions and put them together beautifully.”

Dawn Cobalt
Director/Producer at FutureView Entertainment

Don has produced and mixed hundreds of radio and TV spots for our company. I can personally vouch for his professionalism. His work is top notch and he goes out of his way to meet our demanding deadlines.

Owner/Partner at JKR Advertising Agency

In the beginning, I went to one of the “big” studios and spent way too much money. After discovering Phuturetrax, I realized you can still get the big studio quality at a fraction of the price.
