WELCOME TO TWELVE TONE STUDIO
Drawing upon over a decade of recording and performing experience at the cutting edge of the progressive rock and metal scene, as the guitarist of To-Mera (Candelight Records) and bassist of Haken (Sensory/ Inside Out Records), I've since channeled my musical passions into mastering the technical side of music production. Twelve Tone Studio is my professional music production service, offering competitive mixing, mastering and recording services to the artist who wants to break the mould and stand out from the crowd!
- Tom MacLean, 2023
I am experienced in a variety of contemporary and traditional mixing styles, and ALWAYS mix to help fulfil YOUR sonic vision.
I offer mastering services for digital/ streaming, CDs and Vinyl.
I am based just outside of London and can offer recording space in several professional studios in London, Surrey and Berkshire.
Twelve Tone Studio is a fully equipped hybrid digital/ analog mixing and mastering studio based at my home studio in leafy Surrey, UK. My mixing approach is primarily 'in-the-box', utilizing state of the art analog modelling software, reserving analog outboard gear primarily for recording, reamping and non-linear summing purposes. These days, with the ever-improving quality of guitar amp and cabinet impulse responses, limitless drum sample libraries on offer, and even room acoustics modelling software, the computer has really become the complete self-contained studio tool!

"Tom is absolutely a first class level producer and mixing/mastering engineer! He knows the correct direction for the music and will guide you through the production with smooth communication and decent suggestions. Also you can feel and find he puts creative ideas in the mix with proper tones for each of the instruments and a deep understanding of the music. Looking forward to make more music together in the future, thanks a lot!"
