Super friendly and helpful engineers who do great work! As an artist who's new to the recording game it was a little intimidating to go looking for mastering options but the guys at Joao Carvalho mastering were able to supply an excellent job at an affordable price, and did I mention they were friendly? A+
This place is incredible; very welcoming, great sound, and a great atmosphere for creativity and positivity. I've worked with Mike Marra on some of my projects, and I can always trust him in making our project sound like a record. Definitely an engineer I would love to continue to work with through my musical journey.
The most reliable group to work with! Mike Marra aided us tremendously in bringing our song to life. As a mastering engineer, he is among the best and has a distinct ear for quality. The sound is exceptional and Mike responds very quickly to any questions we had! - Room For Two
Had the pleasure of working with João at João Carvalho Mastering finishing off a new song for my project Life Like Dream. Booking a session was as easy as sending an email that was promptly followed by a reply from Bryan, Mastering Engineer & Studio Manager who helped arrange the details of my session. Finding João Carvalho Mastering studio was easy, located at 43 Laing St, Toronto, a quiet street with a park in Leslieville that’s minutes away from Queen and Eastern Ave. Bryan greeted me at the door on arrival and made sure I was well caffeinated for my mastering session. It was great working with João, a true professional whose years of experience can easily be heard when listening to his final master.
I'm very pleased with both the sound of my album masters and my customer experience. Bryan and Tim went the extra mile to ensure that my project sounded great, and they squeezed in all the revisions to fit my original estimate. I compared my masters to a professional recording in the same genre and my stuff holds its own--not bad for an album recorded entirely in my apartment! If you're an indie musician and want your music to sound as good as it possibly can, the fine folks at João Carvalho Mastering will deliver the goods. Highly recommended.
