About Suppressed Studios
I'm Stephen Carrington, and I've been involved in music and recording for decades; I've been teaching guitar for years, as well as operating Suppressed Studios since the mid-90's, and I also completed an internship at Doppler Studios in Atlanta in 2013 and then started working there part time. I am the principle engineer at Suppressed Studios, as well as the assistant engineer. I also maintain the website, and I'll be the one you'll deal with from start to finish. In fact, I'm the only one here. No interns, no assistants, no front office people...the guy answering your emails is the same person engineering every step of your project, and I take pride in being able to give every client the specialized attention that their project requires.
Located in Marietta GA, Suppressed Studios is a compact and efficient space designed specifically for audio mixing and mastering; limited tracking capabilities also round out this very comfortable facility. I have Pro Tools and Cubase running on a substantial Mac Pro, with plenty of plug-ins and outboard gear...plus, I'm a mixing and mastering engineer who will focus on exactly the end result you desire, but can still offer sound and sage advice on any aspect of your project. It's the ear that matters most in mixing and mastering, and I have a pair that rivals the finest audio professionals in the land.
I'm always willing to provide new clients with a mixed or mastered partial sample of your project prior to full commitment to a project, so that you can be certain that you want to proceed with my work. This sample is provided at no cost, and at absolutely no obligation to you (but a deposit is required for samples involving mixing; the deposit is equal to the per-song rate for the service, and is fully refundable if you choose not to proceed with the project); once you decide that you want to proceed, I will complete the project (if necessary) once you remit the agreed upon amount. I can also provide revisions of any project after completion, at no charge (as long as there isn't an exorbitant amount of revisions). Click the Contact link above to upload your source material, and I'll get started on your audio sample. One free audio sample per service, per client/artist.
I also offer duplication services with several options for packaging styles and formats, including compact discs, vinyl records (12-inch and 7-inch), digital download cards, cassette tapes, and even 8-track tapes; and I will gladly help with the layout...I can even do the entire design for you! RUSH processing and expedited delivery are available for those that need their projects returned quickly (although RUSH processing is unfortunately not available on most vinyl and tape duplication orders). * * * PLEASE NOTE THAT DUPLICATION SERVICES ARE ONLY AVAILABLE TO CURRENT MIXING/MASTERING CLIENTS OF SUPPRESSED STUDIOS, AND ONLY FOR MATERIAL THAT HAS BEEN MIXED AND/OR MASTERED BY SUPPRESSED STUDIOS! * * *
I want Suppressed Studios to function as a sort of "surrogate label" for those that are not associated with a record label, and also to help augment services offered to artists by any existing label. I can do as little or as much as needed for any given project--from mixing and mastering, to design services, to full-scale duplication, or almost any combination of those services, I'm sure you'll find Suppressed Studios to be an indispensable ally in your musical endeavors.
And I'm easy to work with, too!
