Saff Mastering is a facility providing mastering for all formats (CD, digital, vinyl, cassette, etc.) and lacquer mastering for vinyl in northwest Chicago. Carl Saff began tracking and mixing records in 1995, but mastering has been the focus of his engineering work since 2000. This studio's goal is to make sure the mixes you've worked hard to perfect receive the best possible presentation for your listeners, and payment is only accepted when the client is completely satisfied with the work.
