"Marcel has gone above and beyond to make sure my clients are completely satisfied. From communication to quality, Marcel scores an excellent! As you likely know, countless hours go into making a record so it is imperative to have someone at the final stage like Marcel who works in a very methodical and professional manner. He will always honor the organic nature of a song. Mastering is not only about loudness, it is about making your song sonically sound the best it can. Marcel has the gear and ear to keep me coming back!"

“After spending many hours mixing a project, I need to send it to someone I trust for mastering! Marcel has been mastering singles and albums for me for a while now. I completely trust his judgement in making the songs sound even better. His mastering is clear, punchy, the vocal pops in the track, and his choices are musical. It is not only the outstanding gear he uses, but also the intelligent choices that he makes using his ears!”

"A few years ago I decided to get all my music mastered by Marcel, and I haven't stopped since. Marcel always delivers the best masters for me, and just when you think it can't get better, it does. The combination of his gear, knowledge and quest for better products and techniques, creates a top notch sound that is not only the loudest, but also clear, detailed and pristine. I highly recommend it!"

"Marcel James is the real deal. The warmth, clarity, and punch he is able to achieve out of a nicely balanced mix is impeccable. The vocals, and instruments shine in the highs, mid range, and lows. He adds a depth that is indescribable. He really brings the mix to life with that industry standard sound. Most of all, Marcel is a man of integrity, honesty, and humility. He takes great pride in his work for clients. Thanks for all you do Marcel!"

“Marcel James is truly a master of mastering .. and sound in general. He has worked his magic on the sounds and music I create with the giant strings of the Earth Harp. He goes deep into the sound, understanding the complex beauty of the harmonics and how they relate to the overall timber and quality of sound. He is masterful and open minded in his work .”

"I had the best experience working with Marcel. it is not often that you get to work with someone with so much integrity and drive to make their work the best it can be. My tracks sound amazing. I am very proud of the finished product. I couldn't ask for anything more."
"Marcel added a depth and focus to my production and mix of a song called "Dumb" that totally took it to that next level. I'm very happy with his mastering work, and love his discerning ears and positive energy. I'll be back :)"
Ryan Critchfield reviewed Marcel James Mastering
"Wow! My mixes came back sounding polished and professional. I've tried other "mastering plugins" but they didn't compare with what Marcel was able to do to my mix. I mix in the box and always struggle to get that "fat, analog" sound out of my stuff. Marcel made it happen. He's also a great guy! I look forward to doing more in the future! Thanks Marcel!!!!"
Evan Moinvaziri reviewed
"Marcel is the man! His mastering techniques and analog gear provide our tracks with a warm, wide and loud sound. You just can't get this from using computer plugins."
Andrew Lein reviewed
"Marcel has the ability to make your tracks shine with great clarity, balance and volume. There is increased separation in my music now that was unattainable with plug ins. I will be bringing all my tracks to him and saying goodbye to mastering "in the box".
