About Us
Music mastering is often seen as a mystery. At Peerless, an important goal is to demystify the process to keep our clients involved and ensure that we achieve their sonic goals. We consider it of the utmost importance to work closely with our clients to make sure they are getting exactly the results they're looking for from the mastering process.

Mastering requires a balance of skill and vision. We work hard to make sure your record achieves the warmth, depth and vivacity you're looking for.
We know there is no one-size-fits-all approach to mastering, no magic plug-in. That's why our engineers have dedicated years to studying the art and science of mastering. We approach each project with the same care and individual attention. We make sure to understand your aesthetic goals so we can elevate your record to the next level. Whether it's a highly polished commercial record or a lo-fi indie project, we are dedicated to making your vision a reality.
Founded in 1995 by world-renowned mastering engineer Jeff Lipton, Peerless Mastering has completed hundreds of projects for clients ranging from unsigned independent artists to major-label performers. Our expertise in all genres of music has brought a remarkably diverse and talented selection of artists to our studios, and our state-of-the-art facilities and commitment to achieving the precise sound our clients are looking for ensures that they leave happy and return to Peerless for all their mastering needs.Peerless Mastering is located in Newtonville, Massachusetts and features two world-class studios meticulously designed to be the ultimate listening and sound-refining environments. The studios were personally designed by two of the world's premier acousticians, Bob Alach and Michael Blackmer.
We offer the highest fidelity processing obtainable anywhere, from only the best pro-audio manufacturers. Our vintage equipment is scrupulously maintained and has been rebuilt and custom-modified by Alactronics for the finest possible sound quality.

Most essential, however, to a fully satisfying mastering experience is, of course, the mastering engineer. The best equipment available, in the best sound environment, will not produce the desired outcome without a talented and knowledgeable engineer to operate it. Peerless engineers have extensive training and experience, and work closely with each client to understand exactly the results he or she is looking for and how best to achieve them.
