For many years during the 1990s I was an audio mastering engineer at East London Cassettes and Ideal Mastering (in both The Fortress, Farringdon and later the Holloway Road studios, in London). During this time I was involved with a great many recordings; some clients include:

I use an Apple Mac Pro system using Steinberg's WaveLab 8.5 software, along with a large range of Universal Audio (UAD), Sonnox and P&M plug-ins for EQ, limiting, compression, and reverb; as well as audio restoration - de-noising and de-clicking. With monitoring through Tannoy System 12 DMT's, Yamaha NS10's, Alesis Monitor One mk.II's, Mordaunt-Short MS20's and Beyer Dynamic DT150's, in a well treated control room.
