Black Dog has been in business since 1999 and works with both major labels & independent artists. Our dedicated mixing and mastering studios ensures your music is getting everything it deserves. Your music will have 2 sets of ears and over 30 years combined experience! If you compare our rates to other mixing and mastering studios you will find we are highly competitive. There are lower priced options online, but you will not receive the quality, service and experienced engineers you will get at Black Dog.

Black Dog has the unique advantage of offering customized mastering for iTunes, .mp3 and other compressed formats. With the Sonnox Pro-Codec Black Dog is able to compare compressed format in real-time. This allows us to customize your mastering with the end format in mind. When your music is compressed to a smaller file such as .m4a or .mp3 it changes the characteristics of the audio & can dramatically change the way your music sounds. We offer a wide selection of audio formats. You can add any format to your mixing or mastering project from our Requests Page. We provide the option to upload your project directly to our server, or to send a cd or dvd to our Studio in Tampa, FL

What our client's say about us! 

  • I got free samples from five different mastering studios. I decided to go with the best one, Black Dog Mastering. Andy is very professional and very knowledgeable. Thank you for making my project sound very professional.

  • BDM made my project sound like I spent a million dollars on it! Not only that, but I saved a lot of money Instead of going to some other company where they charge 1000 dollars for the same work. I got an amazing sounding album for a fraction of the cost. Don’t hesitate. Go with Black Dog Mastering.
