Listen – Before And After Mastering Samples:
Listen to these samples, all mastered by the UK’s No1 independent mastering engineer: Pete Maher. Pete’s approach is to keep it tight, retain the dynamics of the mix and to increase the perceived volume of the track. The unmastered sections are exactly as they were mixed by the producers involved (N0 manipulation!). Good producers know that headroom is king! All mixes submitted to Pete Maher will be mastered by Pete Maher (no assistants or outsourcing).
Mike Puskas, CEO / Ikonic Artists says: Having spent 30 years in the industry working with various mastering engineers from Bernie Grundman to Sterling Sound to The Townhouse etc, I have not come across a more consistent mastering engineer than Pete Maher. Pete’s work is first class every time bar none. He delivers precision masters in a timely manner and on budget every time. I think he sets the standard of what modern day mastering is all about. You seriously can’t go wrong working with him.
James C Hughes (Mick Jagger, Jeff Beck, Stevie Wonder) says: After I had written, produced and arranged my debut album I had to consider it being mastered. This was to be the first time that I had to hand the songs over to someone else, and work with them to bring the album home. It quickly became apparent that during the process of deliberating on who was going to master it, the planets lined up, the stars aligned and I was sent into the orbit of Pete Maher. From the start we had a simpatico, we understood each other’s passion for music, and we worked intensely to get it right. And until that moment arrived, nothing less would do. They say there are not many people on the extra mile. That is where you will find Pete Maher.
