Brass Tacks Audio is a Recording, Mixing & Mastering (Both Digital and Vinyl Formats) Engineer by the name of Matt Qualls. 

Matt Qualls' recordings can be described as loose, live, raw and real. A little bit of dirt and shine. Just you, your instrument and the microphones. Drawing influence from his hometown, Memphis. Matt focuses on capturing emotion & individuality over perfection. Using both digital and analog tools, old and new techniques, Brass Tacks Audio is all about providing the best recording for you. Drawing from a background as a musician, Matt chooses to mostly record live. He feels that having the musicians perform together as a unit, provides a truer representation of the group. Whether the band is all in the same room, or everyone has their own iso-booth and is monitoring off headphones, is a matter of the facility and end result of the record. We hope you choose Matt as your next recording, mix or mastering engineer.
