Working with someone as skilled as Randy LeRoy was a god send. He was patient beyond belief and the perfect guide through the journey to bring my project sonically just where I needed it to be. Airshow was not only a great working partner but is also a nurturing home that I will return to in the future.
As I’ve worked as a producer and engineer over the years there’s a handful of people whom I’ve come to place my deepest trust in. David Glasser is at the top of that list.
He’s mastered all manner of records for me—roots, indie rock, jazz, contemporary classical—and he’s done a fabulous job every time. It’s a highlight of every project I’ve done giving a first listen
to his mastering work. David, Ann Blonston and the entire team at Airshow are warm, friendly and at the top of their game.
The comments across the board on these masters are fantastic! Great job out of Airshow Mastering!
Dave is absolutely my go-to guy for any and every surround project that I’m fortunate to work with. Dave has the ears, the equipment, the environment, and the temperament that I look for in a mastering engineer. I have asked for his involvement in several projects including the Grateful Dead Movie and Sunshine Daydream, and I am always happy with results. They sound great, and I know the technical side has been taken care of. Plus, he’s a good guy as well!
Anna Frick mastered my first solo album and I cold not be more happy about that. She really made the songs on this recording shine. In addition, Anna is a total professional and an absolute pleasure to work with. I’d recommend her to anyone looking for a mastering engineer.
Randy Leroy is a pro and the work he did on our project was as valuable as that of any of the band members. If you’re releasing an independent record, it isn’t finished until it’s mastered and no one does it better than Airshow.
Working with an artist like John Cowan automatically carries a heavy level of responsibility, given the incredible level of quality that he brings to the project. In my role as producer, I exerted my best efforts at every stage – song choices, arrangements, players that suited the material, and of course the recording process overall. When it came time for mastering, it was good fortune indeed to get Randy LeRoy involved. He has proven to be such a great match for the music, and he is such a pleasure to work with. We have a lot of range stylistically on this project, so for any mastering engineer that this would be a real challenge. Randy really did a great job, and again, such a good guy and easy to communicate and work with.
It’s hard to be objective about Dave Glasser’s work because we’ve become friends over the last several years. On the other hand, we wouldn’t have become friends if I hadn’t come to him for mastering work a number of times. I was an admirer of his mastering talent before we ever met – his work on archival Grateful Dead projects and countless other releases by my favorites artists is unparalleled in its musicality.
After pouring my heart and soul into the music I engineer/produce/mix, there is NO ONE I trust more than David Glasser to take my work, and the blood, sweat, and tears of my clients, to the next level. He’s a consummate artist and technician, a great communicator, and at his core, a sweet and generous human being.
The mastering really added that last bit of sparkle and glue to the whole thing. It’s like I’m hearing parts in the tracks I’ve never heard before…and I played everything on the record! Thanks for your audio wizardry!
I had a great time working with Anna. During the pre-mastering session Anna offered me some really valuable insight on my mixes that enhanced the songs. I produced and recorded this project myself and her ears were a welcome addition in reaching final mixes. She worked quickly and effectively through my songs. When it came to doing final listens I had very few things I wanted changed. She also helped me upload my album to the CD reproduction company. From start to finish Anna was a great help, professional, and fun to work with.
Airshow Mastering is ace. David Glasser‘s connection to The Dead was huge ‘cause we were covering “Deep Elem Blues” that I know and love from The Grateful Dead version. I said I wanted it warm and sounding like an old blues record with a little more bump in the bass… and he did just that. Mellow, cool guy, humble, and totally took the time to get it how we wanted it to sound.
I’ve worked with David Glasser on several albums and keep coming back. His work on “Phineas McBoof Crashes The Symphony” was fabulous. He really got the music and the point of the release – to introduce the orchestra to newcomers and kids – and he was extremely flexible and kind with his workflow and schedule. I would be delighted to work with David again.
I was really pleased with the mastering work Randy LeRoy did on this record. He took the time to sit down with me on the front end for a couple of listening sessions, where we talked through the songs and made notes to make sure we were on the same page. Once we had the vision aligned, Randy worked his magic, and it really enhanced the songs. He’s a super-pro and a super nice guy.
Airshow is my first choice for mastering my projects. David Glasser has the best ears in the business. I always receive the highest compliments from my artists and customers.
We LOVE the way the record is sounding after mastering.
We’ve been using Randy LeRoy for mastering our mixes for years, including all genres of music. He is always a part of the project… A true professional with top notch quality that Audio Dallas and our clients can always depend on with a great set of ears. We look forward to having Airshow Mastering and Randy master projects for us for years to come.
The records I produce span many genres: bluegrass, Italian pop, post-modern punk, beyond and back again. Over the past fifteen years David Glasser has mastered a great many of these projects, always with fantastic results. No matter what the sonic landscape, Dave has an unusual ability to bring out the best in each project while always maintaining ultimate respect for the musicality and dynamics of the given body of work. In this increasingly “broad stroke, slap-dash” world, David Glasser remains a true artisan. I trust him completely to work on my projects without my presence but I always prefer to travel to Boulder to be with him if I can because, among other things, I really enjoy his company.
