Dave Kutch

"Great sounding records by great artists in a very sexy, elegant and productive environment, accompanied by the level of service found at a five star hotel"

That was our mantra when I built The Mastering Palace and it is still our mantra today as we evolve and adapt to our clients ever changing needs.

Michelle Mancini

Michelle has been with The Mastering Palace since 2008. Over the years she has served as studio manager, assistant engineer, technical and web support, and mastering engineer in her own right.

She is currently proud to continue assisting Dave Kutch as she fosters her own mastering career.

Tatsuya Sato

"Tats", a Tokyo native, is the latest addition to The Mastering Palace's engineering roster.

Prior to his transition into mastering, Tats received a Grammy nomination for Album of The Year for his engineering work on Kanye West's, "The College Dropout".

Most recently a mastering engineer at Sterling Sound in NYC, he worked on numerous albums. Tats' approach to mastering incorporates his experiences in recording, mixing and producing. He now brings his vast collection of experiences to The Mastering Palace, and we look forward to his future successes therein.

Mark Santangelo

Mark began his mastering career at Sony Music Studios back in 2000 working alongside legendary mastering engineer Vlado Meller. In recent years Mark has been credited with mastering albums such as The Weeknd's 'Trilogy', Neon Trees' 'Habits' & Neil Diamond's 'Home Before Dark'.

Mark's passion for music and undaunted devotion to his clients is reflected in every album he masters and thusly makes him a welcome addition to The Mastering Palace's staff of engineers.

Mastered for iTunes

Apple has recently embarked on its Mastered For iTunes initiative, and The Mastering Palace was contacted to join them in their initial stages.

The Mastering Palace can create and send masters that meet Apple's Mastered for iTunes specifications.

Private Mastering

Unlike most mastering studios, The Mastering Palace can come to you. Dave Kutch has mastered both of Alicia Keys' last two albums in her live room at her personal studio.

We have a complete duplicate of Dave's mastering room ready to travel. It can be set up and ready for mastering in three days. Security, comfort, and the ability to make final mastering decisions in your normal listening environment are just a few of the advantages to working like this.

Please contact us to further discuss the benefits and logistics of bringing our studio to you.
