We're finalizing a project for a fairly well-known singer/songwriter and, for logistic reasons, are looking to master in the LA area. We've got a few initial appointments set-up at a few of the larger mastering facilities (The Mastering Lab - Doug Sax, Bernie Grundman, Precision Mastering). However, as always, budget is a concern. The project is acoustic-based, so there's not a lot of drums, etc. We'd like to find someone with the chops for stuff like this, without quite having to pay the rates some of the "big guys" are asking. Anyone have any suggestions or alternatives? Thanks!
