Location: Hamilton, Ontario


About Me

My name is Jon Tornblom. I run a dedicated mastering room in Hamilton, Ontario. I am a specialist, focused entirely on the mastering process using high end monitoring and analog processing. My approach is to hear what the intention was in the tracking, mixing, and production stages and then use the tools I have to complete that vision for the song. This is often partly corrective, partly enhancement. I take pride in my customer service, communication, punctuality, and professionalism, but all are done in a personable, friendly and approachable manner. I look forward to working with you!

Clients & Affiliations

I have worked with hundreds of clients since I started mastering in 2008. Clients include Walk Off The Earth, Jon Samson, Systems Officer, Instant Empire, Facebook, Tee Bee, PRYKA, and Maggie Eckford/Ruelle.

Terms of Service

Two revisions per song are included in the price. Revisions are not transferable between songs. Alternate versions such as Instrumental, Radio Edit, Vocals Only, Performance/Karaoke, MFiT, or Vinyl are counted as revisions. Additional work after the two revisions are used is billed hourly, but it is very rare that a job is transferred to hourly.
