The engineer Loz started Fat As Funk in 2006. He has spent a frankly unhealthy amount of time in studios since 1994 & has only ever worked in music-industry jobs (with a bit of A-Level Music Tech teaching 20 years ago).
Our album mastering gives smooth results & ties a collection of tracks together flawlessly into one cohesive work.
Fat As Funk is a proudly independent family business. When you use us, your money does not go to faceless shareholders at major labels, but instead goes directly to feeding the kids and positive stuff like that!
We would love to work on your music, so upload your track & try us out for free. You will be extremely happy with the results!
Mixing services are done using a combination of our classic Onyx 1640i analogue desk alongside the flexibility and precision of a cutting edge digital workstation. We find a combination of analogue & digital tools give the best results.
We have a small archery range close to the studio, & Loz practices Zen archery to refresh his headspace between jobs, or when the computer screens get too much! This mind-emptying restores clarity in a hectic day, and gives the best audio results in the end.
We insist on having happy customers. We want to make you glad you chose us.
MORE ABOUT MASTERING AND MIXING
“Why pay a human? there are automated services out there that will master my track for almost free!”
Machines don’t have SOUL. Your music does. We do too. Choose a human that you can talk to, who has FELT the joy of music rushing through their blood, who gets an emotional response from music not just cold binary code. Music needs a human touch at all points of the process, especially the final step in crafting the sound!
Or if you already prefer humans to AI… So why pay a professional? My DAW says it has all I need already & I can master the album myself!”
Your DAW may have some tools built in already, and you’re already a hardened producer – but it’s no coincidence that pretty much every professionally released record has been mastered by someone outside the immediate production group. Even tracks produced in high-end studios employ different mastering engineers.
Everyone needs a Mastering Engineer with impartial, trained ears, who will take the time to listen to what you want to achieve and the confidence, experience and equipment to make the right decisions to tie all your tracks together and optimize your final sound into one cohesive work.
Professional mastering is the last artistic step in the creation of a radio-ready, commercial sounding release. It should not be seen as ‘optional’. It brings out all the subtleties in expressive live performance, makes the bass bump & the treble sparkle. Good mastering makes the whole track seem bigger without destroying the dynamic range and tonal balance you’ve worked so hard to achieve in the mix. Magic can be done in the mastering suite.
We do mixing and mastering all day, every day. We know the art and the science of every genre intimately. We always take the time to do it right – no shortcuts, no compromise, every time.
Whether you’re at the top of the industry or just carving your first steps, we can get the best out of your music so you can be totally confident in your sound, & let the music speak for itself.
