The Mastering Lab

The Mastering Lab

Profile:
The Mastering Lab was a mastering studio established in 1967 by audio engineer brothers Doug Sax and Sherwood Sax, together with musician and composer Lincoln Mayorga, in Hollywood, California and relocated to Ojai, California.
The Mastering Lab used three different lathes to cut records. The original Scully lathe is indicated in runouts by the letters TML. When a second Scully was added in 1972, the original became TML-M and the new one TML-S, with the M and S meaning master and slave. A Neumann lathe was added later and is indicated by the letters TML-X.
On June, 2015, the studio ceased its activities after Doug Sax passed away on April 2, 2015. The facility is now owned by Acoustic Sounds. As a result of the sale, The Mastering Lab will now relocate from Ojai, California to Acoustic Sounds headquarters in Salina, Kansas.
