A master class in mastering music

So far this week we have had the pleasure of a mastering class from Barry Grint who learnt his craft at studios like Trident and Abbey Road. This man now sits in his padded room all day listening to music and making sure it sounds as good as is possible when transferred to vinyl or CD for our listening pleasure. The acoustics of his room being so pivotal, I asked him if he listens to music for pleasure at home – the answer was an unequivocal NO
