Is it true Universal Mastering NYC is closing???
« on: April 02, 2011, 04:15:28 pm »

I heard a rumor that the New York facility is closing or is already closed http://www.universalmastering.com/

Anyone else heard anything?

Brad if this is inappropriate please toss. Thanks

Where did you hear that?  There are 3 locations.  Over the last couple of years I've seen their ad campaign for online mastering and thought they had a loose affiliation with tunecore in that respect.

Are there any references that support they might be closing?

I haven't heard anything about it.

I would say that if you don't have a link or first-hand knowledge, this sort of rumor is potentially damaging to their business. If someone doesn't have first-hand knowledge or a real link, I'm going to shut this one down...

Brad,


I guess my information was a bit premature. Better shut this topic down until I get more info. Thanks...

Yep. They dropped the net March 15th.
Kevin, Seth & Eliot are working out of Sterling.
Don't know what Ellen is doing.
Vlado & Mark will survive.
