Airshow’s mastering engineers bring decades of experience and a passion for music to every project. We have mastered thousands of projects in a wide range of genres, for clients ranging from major labels to first-time independents.

Airshow’s TEC-Award nominated mastering studio, designed by Sam Berkow of SIA Acoustics, is equipped with top-notch analog and digital gear.

Projects mastered at Airshow have won numerous Grammy awards and collected over 100 Grammy nominations, numerous gold and platinum sales records, and other industry accolades; yet, the highest accolade is the confidence of our clients.

Mastering is the last step in the audio production process and combines technical and creative elements. As part of the creative team, we invite you to schedule a listening session to check out your mixes prior to mastering.
