Davis Hay


HayWire Studio is an affordable mixing and mastering solution for rock and metal. I make use of vintage-style plugins to create saturated soundscapes that would feel at home in 80s and 90s metal. I'm proud to offer my clients distribution-specific mastering, which means you get multiple masters which are each fine-tuned for streaming services, CD and more. Reach out to me if you have any questions about my services.



What is Distribution Specific Mastering?

It is the process of creating multiple masters of your music to ensure that you have optimal versions for different distribution methods.

Since streaming platforms normalize audio to lower loudness with lower peaks, there is no reason to submit a louder/more compressed master to them. You can instead submit a quieter/less compressed master which has more dynamic range!





Engineer fee $25/hr. Studio rental required. Contact for more details.

Mastering is the final stage where your song is polished and brought up to industry standard loudness.
