Hear the difference

Connected by The Other LA

“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.

ORIGINAL TRACK

MASTERED TRACK

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

“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.
