My Story

Hi, my name is Michael Venia and I am a professional mastering engineer located in San Luis Obispo, CA. I’ve had experience in the music industry since 2004 and I specialize in providing personalized, human mastering services that are tailored to the unique needs of each of my clients.

As a mastering engineer, I pride myself on my excellent communication skills and customer service. I believe that mastering is a collaborative process, and I am always open to working with my clients to ensure that they get the sound that they are looking for. Whether you are an independent artist, a record label, or a music producer, I am here to help you take your music to the next level.

I use a combination of analog and digital tools to enhance and optimize the sound of your mixes, including outboard gear, plug-ins, and software. I have a deep understanding of the technical aspects of mastering, such as EQ, compression, and loudness normalization, and I use these skills to bring out the best in your music.

I am also a musician and a music lover, and I bring that passion and perspective to every project that I work on. I’m the singer and songwriter in my band, Carbon City Lights. I understand that music is more than just sounds and frequencies - it's a form of self-expression and a way to connect with others. That's why I started my engineering career to provide high-quality mastering.

If you are looking for a mastering engineer who can provide personalized, human mastering with excellent communication, I would love to work with you. Let me know if you have any questions!
