Coast Mastering Studio
Designed and tuned by acoustician Bob Hodas, the two mastering rooms at Coast Mastering perfectly bridge the gap between professional audio equipment and audiophile listening systems, enabling Coast’s mastering engineers and clients to work and listen in an ideal acoustic environment. Each room incorporates all-analog mastering chains using SoundBlade and Sequoia as the playback software. The studios are also equipped with ATR tape machines and custom turntables.
We work out of the historic Fantasy Studios complex in Berkeley, California. Feature speakers by Focal, VTL monoblock tube amplifiers, A/D/A conversion by Bricasti and Metric Halo, ATR tape machines, and all-analog mastering chains with gear by Masalec, Manley, Rupert Neve, Knif, Esoteric Audio Research, GML and more.
We pride ourselves on the integrity of our listening environments and our meticulous attention to quality and detail.
