Level Wars and Other Mastering Issues in the Context of the New Record-Business Paradigm

Multi platinum and Grammy-winning mastering engineer Bob Ludwig of Gateway Mastering & DVD (Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, The Police, Nirvana, Rush), will moderate an all star panel featuring Paul Stubblebine (Grateful Dead, Sly Stone, Journey, Santana); Greg Calbi of Sterling Sound (Norah Jones, Bowie, John Lennon, Paul Simon’s Graceland); Europe’s Tim Young (The Clash, The Smiths, Bjork, Van Morrison); Gavin Lurssen, Lurssen Mastering (Lucinda Williams, Matchbox 20, Alison Krauss and the Knocked Up soundtrack); and Brad Blackwood of Euphonic Mastering (Fuel, Sister Hazel, Lucero, Nine Days).

Mastering hot levels has been with us since the LP and 45 singles. It has gotten out of hand for CDs and downloads. We will discuss the issue from traditional and unorthodox perspectives and cover other topics that impact on the art and business of mastering. In addition to the opportunity to trade ideas, tips, and war stories with our peers, we look forward to a lively Q&A with the audience.
