Disc Makers recently completed its 10,000th CD post-production mastering project at its in-house studio, SoundLab at Disc Makers. Chris Gray, a country artist from Hammond, La., submitted his CD entitled From Where I Am for post-production mastering, and was surprised to learn that his was the milestone project.
“What can I say? I am excited about this honor and thrilled to be a part of this great milestone for Disc Makers,” says Chris Gray. “We have a great relationship with Disc Makers. They are a world-class organization that truly understands the needs of independent artists. I wish them luck on the next 10,000 projects!”
The SoundLab first opened its doors inside Disc Makers’ Pennsauken, N.J.-based headquarters in 1989, and has hosted mastering projects for many high-profile artists, including Marshall Mathers (Eminem), Less Than Jake, Coolio, The Roots, Sir Mix-A-Lot, Kool and The Gang, and John Taylor of Duran Duran. Catering to independent artists, the SoundLab offers full album mastering for $490. The SoundLab engineering team is led by chief engineer Paul Elliot.
Disc Makers also recently opened a new mastering suite that uses high-end equipment from SADiE and Sonic Studio, along with digital and analog processing gear from Weiss, TC Electronics, Apogee, George Massenberg Labs, Avalon Designs, and Focusrite. It is outfitted with Dynaudio Acoustic M-3 speakers powered by Chord monoblocks.
