Ben Wilde is an Mercury award, multi-platinum winning engineer who knows how to get the absolute best from your music. And, with the most precise, finely-tuned audio equipment available today, you’ll hear your music as you’ve never heard it before.

The power of tape

For decades, magnetic tape has been considered the preferred recording format for music. Your music sounds better on tape, and we chose our custom Studer A80 just because it sounds better than any other tape machine we’ve heard.

“The best, amazing mixing advice on top of absolutely class mastering quality. I wouldn’t take my mixes anywhere else, and will be contacting Ben for mastering for a long while!”

– Alfie Neale

Our Tape Mastering

We use a Studer A80 tape machine with RMG SM911 1/2″ tape (at 15IPS), chosen and modified by us for perfect tape characteristics. We consider our machine unparalleled for:

  1.  Warmth and saturation – ±2dB @ 0.8 – 3.5KHz
  2. Gentle tape compression – < 2:1 ratio, frequency-dependent
  3. Very subtle tape wow/flutter effects for a true analog feel

The Process

We’ve worked hard to optimise our mastering process to make things quick and easy:

  1. After making your purchase, you can instantly submit your files via WeTransfer™.
  2. Within 3 working days, you’ll receive the complete, finished master in your Sound Sauce Online account.
  3. That’s it – done! If we didn’t get it quite right, you can always submit a revision request from your Sound Sauce Online account. We’ll always aim to complete a revision within 3 working days.

We want to give you the best mastering experience you’ve ever had. To that end, we offer every customer our Quality Guarantee:

  1. Initial delivery within 3 working days, or your money back.
  2. 21 days of unlimited free revisions after initial delivery.
