I have a degree in sound engineering and specialised in analog recording forms, including reel to reel tape splicing, mastering using Studer tape machines, SSL (Solid State Logic) 4000G+ desk and Pro-Tools HD, as well as studio and live recording. Over the years I have worked less on live engineering (unless it’s a Home Normal event sometimes!) and focused on mastering a variety of artists for CD, cassette, vinyl and digital.
Here is a list of my favourite mastering toys:
Adam AX7 (first reference)
Yamaha MSP5(second reference)
Avantone Mix Cube Active (third reference)
Yamaha NS10(vinyl + cassette second reference)
Sennheiser HD580 headphones
AKG K240 headphones
SSL 4000 channel x 2
Studer A807 1/4” reel-to-reel
Logic Pro 10
Universal Audio UAD-2
Typical turnaround for a project is anywhere from a few days to three or four weeks depending on schedule. If you would like a CD master as well as a download, please note this will take around a week on top of this for postage from Japan.
(As of April 9th 2012) I am currently booked up until the end of June with projects I am afraid. I will not be accepting any projects until then although I am able to book in projects to be completed between July and September for now. Thanks.
£2.50 per minute of audio (rounded down). This price includes a download of wav (or aiff) and id3 tagged mp3 masters, a CD master and back-up (if required) including worldwide postage. If you would like your project uploaded to Gracenote (for iTunes etc) please provide all relevant release details and artwork.
If you have any questions before, during or after the mastering, please do not hesitate to email me here:
