Steve Marlowe

Founder/Producer/Chief Engineer, TonalityTools Studios

When Steve Marlowe founded TonalityTools over 10 years ago, he made a commitment to advance the quality of music reproduction and assist the ever-growing community of discerning musicians who truly care about the fidelity of their music, both live and recorded.

Having worked with a number of industry artists and professionals throughout the years, Steve’s goal to merge the potential of digital audio with the many desirable attributes of analog when readying recordings for release ultimately lead to the development of Bit Density Processing.

This unique approach to digital audio has helped improve the quality of sound for many independent and label productions.

As a skilled audio engineer and musician, Steve has one overarching criteria when working on music at all stages… “Would I like to listen to this song again, without compromise? If not, keep at it!”

From RedOne to Charlie Parker, Butch Vig to Rudy Van Gelder, Dr. Dre to Brendan O’Brian and Andy Sneap, Steve Marlowe’s influences, music styles, mixing and mastering have no limit.

He has produced renown jazz greats, historical releases, reggae, hip-hop, indie rock, pop, acoustic and EDM (electronic dance music). And much more. As a specialty guitar collector, he has assembled a wonderful studio-centric “library” of instruments and amplifiers specifically chosen for quality recordings across a wide range of music productions. On any given day, those visiting may hear Kongos, Green Day, Garbage, Ed Sheeran, Lana Del Rey, Christina Perri, the Steve Gadd Band, Dizzy, Miles, Parker, or perhaps Jeff Beck’s latest, Foo Fighters, St. Vincent, Alice in Chains or Béla Fleck and Victor Wooten playing over an amazing array of high-end audiophile equipment throughout the facility. Steve will be the first to mention that influences are vital and respected, but art thrives on progressively moving forward with fresh, unique, creative oomph!

Going places and doing things no one has yet experienced and expressing and influencing in bold new ways…That’s what we do!
