Hey, You Found Me!

I'm Sara...

I'm a mixing and mastering engineer working with rock and indie bands worldwide.

Previously at the BBC Maida Vale Studios in London, now freelance.

Here's what I do when I mix Music:

I take this...

and turn it into this...

"Couldn't be happier with the mix Sara produced for our band. She took the time to understand what we were trying to achieve and got it done. She's patient, persistent and reliable with top notch communication. Will certainly be working with her again."
record producer Warren Huart
The Fray | Aerosmith | Korn | Daniel Powter | James Blunt

"Sara's talent and dedication shines through in all of her work. Not only is she a great Mix Engineer and Mastering Engineer, her willingness give back and help others grow is immense!"

Hey Sara, the work & magic you have injected into this album is nothing short of top class. It's been fantastic to work with another person who won't stop until it's exactly right. You have completely brought all 13 songs to life! Thank you so much for everything.

Sara Carter did such an amazing job on our project for the Wistful Sleepers EP! She is very professional and the turnaround time was very quick. She took our direction very well and ultimately sent back a finished project that we are more than happy with. She definitely has an excellent ear. I would highly recommend Sara for your next music project. You won't be disappointed!!!

Here's what I do when mastering Music:

I take this...

and turn it into this...

"There aren't a lot of mastering engineers accessible at this level who will provide a full and constructive critique of your mix/audio prior to supplying final masters. Will defo use again."

I’d like to just personally say how thankful I am for all the work you have put into this passion project mine.
I didn’t really know what to expect when I gave it to you but the outcome was beyond anything I could have hoped for.
You really showed me the importance of a great mixing and mastering engineer and I feel like it has added so much to the final product.
Regardless of what happens to the album we will always be thankful for everything you have put in.
