“Connected” by The Other LA
The Other LA Producer/guitar player CJ Pierce (Drowning Pool) delivered a solid mix for their song “Connected”. The SoundLAB boosted the volume, worked to tighten the low end, and EQ’d for overall clarity and detail, as well as a nice pop to singer Aria’s vocals.
Mastered by Brian Lipski in The SoundLAB’s Blue mastering room, featuring our GML9500 analog EQ, Focusrite compressor, and Weiss DS1 limiter.
“Sunshine” by The Morning Life
Producer/Engineer Jack Miele, who also plays guitar in The Morning Life, sent The SoundLAB some great mixes to work with. A modest increase in volume, some air on the top end, and a little control on the bottom to open up space for the vocals was all this album needed! A separate version was also mastered to 1/4" tape for later release.

“Counting Down Summertime” by Dannie Marie
The SoundLAB looked to highlight Dannie Marie’s vocals, and give her mixes that competitive pop/country volume and sparkle. The original mixes were well balanced, but a bit flat, and needed that mastering magic to make them “pop”!
Mastered by Alex Kerekesha, in The SoundLAB’s Green mastering room, using Sontec and Avalon EQs, Focusrite Blue Range compressor, and monitored on B&W 802 Diamond series speakers.
“Al Ritmo de Mi Corazon” by Getsemani
For the song, “Al Ritmo de Mi Corazon”, from Getsemani’s CD of the same name, The SoundLAB engineers focused on tightening up the low-end, which was a bit boomy in the mixes, bringing the vocals forward and adding a nice sparkle to the high-end to bring out all the details of the mix.
