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.
