Deluxe Mastering is a purpose-built audio mastering facility from the ground up. We are extremely proud of the fact that our rooms were designed by internationally acclaimed acoustic designer George Augspurger of Perception Inc Los Angeles – a first for Australia. George’s reputation and folio of work is unrivaled, including Marcussen Mastering Hollywood, Sony Music NYC, Electric Lady NYC (built for Jimi Hendrix), Sunset Sound and A&M Mastering Hollywood, to name a few. For a look at his work see here.
The Deluxe Mastering studios offer the finest monitoring environment, signal path, high-end analogue and digital processors. We are also decked out with a range of creature comforts like LCD TV, free Wi-Fi, organic Fairtrade coffee, and a fully equipped kitchen – it’s all here for your use to enhance your experience and make you feel at home.
Not to mention, we’re just a short walk from the multicultural hub of Sydney Road’s cafés and restaurants, serviced by trams (Route 19 from the city), trains (Upfield line) and bicycle path (see our Location page).
