If you know anything about Mastering you know this dude is the don! He does all of our stuff so I felt it was relevant to post this. An interesting thing I took from it is that he does more stuff ITB than ever, which kinda proves to me that you've gotta use the best tools for the job; analogue isn't 'always' better!

"Why the fuck are we listening to MP3s – because they sound better? It’s true that with some 320kpbs mp3s you’ll struggle to tell the difference from the original master WAV, but in others, it’s really noticeable. MP3s were created because bandwidths used to be quite small.

To send an album at 600MB would have taken a week, so they created a way of sending it faster, but somehow, we’re at the pinnacle of the digital age and still listening to these diddly little music files. The average CD is 16-bit and even that’s superior."
