And he is doing this for approximately $50.00 per song. That is a lot of equipment for what he is charging......I wonder how he affords it. Must do a LOT of mastering.

Well, considering it's not even a picture of his room, and he fails to specifically mention what gear he has, I'm thinking his signal chain is more "Behringer" than "Sontec"....     Rolling Eyes

Your Kung-Fu is very good, Chuck,
index.php/fa/8202/0/
But it's all just useless hardware without my new book: "Mastering Kung-Fu", secret hints and kinks of big-time mastering engineers.
Settings like the "Snake","Leopard" and "Scorpion", will make your mastering opponents cower like little schoolchildren.

This man is, clearly a reader of my book.
And look at his setup, darned-fine if I do say so. Maybe a little light on the Avalon, and that better be silver-teflon wire inside, as per chapter 5, but all in all, this is the exact gear I recommend for the best sound.

1. Get this stuff
2. Read my book.
3. Sit back and watch the money-faucets start to flow!

Niiice rack! Yes, PMC, BB5 plus matching subs it would appear. Metropolis is a beautiful facility.

Wow - Metropolis' desk is seriously impressive with true A/B paths with matching Weiss, MLA-2, Sontec and what looks like Pultecs and Maselec De-essers!  Are those monitors PMC's?

Best regards,
Steve Berson




BTW, awesome post Chuck. LOL!

Larry,  
With all your mastering Kung-Fu skills and power,  when will you stop...?   What is your ultimate goal as a mastering engineer?

Good Question, Chuck! And I'm glad you asked because my next book is "How to Find Hidden Government Mastering Contracts"

You may not know this, but the US Government has lots of tapes of FBI stings, Murders, Dope Deals and other mundane, but lucrative work to keep even the most down and out mastering engineer buying those Pear speaker interconnects and cable for their new room in a few short months!

Well... he's on to you... now his studio looks like this... Wink

index.php/fa/8246/0/

By the way, the Metropolis picture shows a left and a center speaker. Could it be that the desk is a surround setup?

That makes a lot more sense as the demand for a/b paths on a console is definitely less than for surround capabilities in a place like Metropolis.  Guess I've got vinyl on the brain a lot more than I have for surround.
