Evren Göknar

Evren Göknar

Evren Göknar was drawn to music early in life, first studying the piano, and later developing his skills as a singer / songwriter and guitarist. He began his professional audio career as a recording and mixing engineer. He engineered sessions for Tupac Shakur (RIAA 4x Platinum “RU U Still Down? [remember me]”), Tone-Loc, Mavis Staples, The Cult, Steve Vai, General Public, Carole King, and Montell Jordan (RIAA Platinum “This Is How We Do It”). Building on the skills he honed as a recording engineer, Evren shifted his focus to mastering and in 1995 he joined Capitol Mastering.

Over the last twenty-five years, Evren has established himself as a top-tier mastering engineer, and was awarded a Grammy Award for the “Gathering Of Nations” album (Best Native American Music Album - 2011). He exclusively masters the songs for NBC’s hit television show The Voice and also FOX’s The Four. He has mastered projects for notable acts such as KISS, Smashing Pumpkins, Mariah Carey (“Loverboy” RIAA Gold, Billboard #1 Single), The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Lenny Kravitz, Jimmy Eat World, Iggy Pop, Heart, Megadeth, George Clinton, Eazy E, N.W.A and George Thorogood. Among his remastering credits are seminal albums such as: Beastie Boys “Licensed To Ill” (HD), Glenn Campbell “Wichita Lineman” (HD), Heart “Dreamboat Annie” (HD), Spinal Tap (HD), Linda Ronstadt “Heart Like A Wheel” (HD), the entire Grand Funk Railroad and Queensrÿche catalogs, as well as collections by Poison (RIAA Platinum) and Pat Benatar (RIAA Gold). Additionally, Evren’s affinity for independent artists makes him a favorite mastering choice for artists and producers seeking the best sound for TV/Film placements such as Greg Laswell, Carey Brothers, The Weepies, Reel Big Fish, and underground hip hop group Living Legends. His mastering studio is revered for flat frequency response and the mastered results translate accurately across all formats.

VINYL MASTERING

Vinyl mastering is a technical and artistic craft. The characteristics of the format require special attention to decisions that precede the cutting process including mix, EQ, compression, and timing.

VINYL MASTERING

Exaggerated high and low frequencies, limited dynamic range, and excessive run times can introduce distortion or limit the ability of the engineer to make the best-sounding master possible. Our engineers are trained to recognize these issues and will help troubleshoot to get you an end result you are truly happy with.

HIGHEST QUALITY
LACQUER

Capitol boasts the living legacy of lacquer mastering for vinyl with two legendary Neumann lathes in full-time service. We cut lacquer masters for all formats including 7”, 10” and 12”.
