My philosophy on CD Mastering is to give you, my client...
• the best result,
• in the shortest possible time,
• within your budget.
• And you can be there!
First of all: I recognise that a lot of musicians and bands are on limited budgets. Because of my huge experience (over 17 years) of working on all types of different music, I can make quick judgements on what is required, and do what's necessary to make it sound better.
I may charge a bit more per hour than the cheap places, but I can probably get a better job done - in fewer hours! So if you'd rather spend your time and money in an accurate mastering studio, with someone who understands your sort of music, and do a whole album in a few hours, get in touch.
Here's a bit of Bio stuff...
For the last 20 years or so I was co-owner and director of Sounds Good, which started out as a cassette duplication company manufacturing for bands, artists and some major independent labels, including chart hits for Oasis, The Smiths, The Sundays, The Levellers, Carter USM, Edwyn Collins, Elastica, KLF, Divine Comedy, The Orb, etc.
I got involved in CD manufacturing back in 1992, when we started to offer it as a service to our customers. The following year, 1993, we pioneered the concept of low-cost, but high quality, CD Mastering when we bought one of the first SADiE digital editing systems.
Since then I've mastered hundreds of CDs, experienced and enjoyed heaps of different types of music, upgraded the gear, and had a great time.
Now I've gone solo, I can concentrate on the things I like doing best - working with musicians on mastering their projects through to CD or download.
