There are times in life you just have to put your trust in someone. Trust that the chef won't poison your food, that the cab driver knows the quickest route, that your barber won't take off an ear. Wh...en it comes to mastering, Ryan Foster is a guy to trust with your life, your art, your music. The man knows his stuff. See More

There are a lot of mastering engineers out there, and I’ve worked with quite a few.
But it seemed like everyone I did a project with had a slightly different skill set; This engineer...’s good at THIS and that engineer’s good at THAT, and this engineer pushes it HERE, and that engineer makes it go THERE.
Then I met Ryan Foster.
And that was that (cue the harp and trumpets).
Ryan understands how music should sound more than anyone I’ve ever met.
And not just the technical knob-turning aspects either. Ryan is brilliant with the science of music, but he also understands how music should FEEL. How it should embrace you coming out of the speakers. And how it should move and groove through your ears and right on down ya.
It’s an incredible and rare talent to have and he’s got it.
Lucky us.
Mastering is the sonic last-step before ushering your music out into the world. Ryan is the gate-keeper of that, and he doesn’t take the responsibility lightly.
He treats every project and every client with care and respect.
Plus, he’s smart as hell, and wicked funny so the session and hang is always a blast.
Since first working with Ryan I’ve never worked with another mastering person.
I mean, once you’ve found the best, why bother with the rest?
Know what I mean?

Horton Records in Tulsa has used Foster Mastering (and FREQ mastering) a number of times and we have always received high quality work, good communication, fast turnaround, and professional consultati...on at a reasonable price. Highly recommended. See More

Ryan just finished our record. I’ve been an audio engineer for over 35 years. I’ve engineered for everyone from Ray Charles to the Dixie Chicks and I can say, without a doubt this man has talent and... an amazing ear! The amount of depth, air and intelligibility he added was mind blowing!

Ryan isn't just an amazing mastering guy, he's an amazing person. I had a difficult situation (touchy mixer who had over-compressed the songs), and Ryan was able to gently, persuasively get what he ne...eded from the mixer, to do the highest quality job. He had never met me, but cared about my record enough to fight for it. This CD is so important to me, and it's obvious that every CD is that important to Ryan. I feel so lucky to have found him.

More on this later! Extremely easy to work with and so glad I reached out to Ryan. Final mixes on a Monday and he was mastering the following day.

Called up Ryan to get a Hound the Wolves release mastered. My summary?

Fucking fantastic, on everything I listen on. Ryan does fantastic work. Gave me eargasms, no shit.

Roughly one million years ago, Ryan and I worked together on some projects and he's the best. Some day we'll work on a project here that will master with Ryan, so we can play together again.
