Mastering engineer Bob Ludwig's craftsmanship is appreciated
widely within the music profession, as testified by his extensive credits
and demand for his work. His name is ubiquitously credited on the covers
of albums released across the world, and he has won numerous awards over
the years. We will get a chance to view some of his mastering tools, he
will talk about his craft - the evolution of modern audio mastering from
its beginnings to its current state.
Throughout his career, he has mastered recordings in
all formats for all the major record labels, and on projects for many important
artists such as Radiohead, Jimi Hendrix, Paul McCartney, Madonna, Eric
Clapton, David Bowie, Rolling Stones, Kiss, Queen B, Mariah Carey, Bruce
Springsteen, U2, Metallica, Rush, Led Zeppelin, Nine Inch Nails, Tool, Pearl
Jam and The Who. Bob is up for "Album of the Year"
with 2-nominations, Radiohead and Coldplay. By meeting time
we'll know if he has won again.
In 1993 Bob opened his own business, Gateway
Mastering Studios, Inc. in Portland, Maine. Bob started his own studio
so he could be in control of his own destiny. The studio was an instant
success, winning the 1994 TEC Awards for Mastering Facility and Mastering
Engineer, the first full year it was eligible.
