We offer a variety of analog and digital mastering services.

WHAT IS MASTERING?
Put quite simply, mastering is the final stage of audio preparation. It is where you get a trusted second set of ears to lightly or heavily adjust your work so that it sounds 'whole', and basically ready for public release.
We run a small mastering suite with an array of analog outboard gear, most notably our collection of Studer, Nagra, and Revox reel-to-reels and pre-amps. We also love working with a variety of digital plug-ins depending on the project. We have mastered over a thousand works of various genres over the past ten years from our studio in Tokyo. As of June 2019 our Mokoshi Mastering studio is located by the sea in Peacehaven on the East Sussex Coast.
Whilst well established for our ambient music mastering and love of all things noisy and pristine alike, we also master a variety of genres and work with labels across the spectrum of electronic, classical and even folk music to name a few.

We work with a number of labels and artists which ties up our schedule quite a bit. However, regular customers are offered discounts so please do enquire about this if you have a number of jobs that need mastering and we'll get back to yuo with our current schedule. Regular clients always take priority for us.
My turnaround as of April 2021 is now about a week for initial tests due to a slight backlog of jobs.
