Wireless headphones can be a hit-or-miss affair, thanks to patchy wireless signals and not enough care taken with the actual sonic quality coming out of the cans. Sennheiser believe they've got wireless headphones well and truly sussed out though,…
I am guessing that anyone who has an iPod probably likes music and viz a viz probably has at least a few of The Beatles albums in their collection on CD. Ok, so iTunes might be good for grabbing a few of the good tracks from the weaker albums like Beatles for Sale, but really is this big event – don't think so.
Fancy having your music mastered at the famous Abbey Road studios? Not very likely unless you make it big-time. Well, not very likely until now that is.
The legendary studio is launching an online mastering service this month where musicians and producers can send their tacks to be mastered by Abbey Road’s top engineers using the world famous equipment such as the original EMI TG mastering consoles with the SADiE 5 PCM8 digital audio workstation.
Users can upload up to 2GB of audio onto a dedicated server in uncompressed WAV or AIFF format and sit back and wait whilst the experts do their thing. Within five working days users will receive an email with a download link. The link will stay live for a month and the mastered tracks will be in WAV, DDP image file or an audio PMCD. Vinyl will be provided in the format requested – either 7-inch, 12-inch or LP album. Additional copies can also be produced on CD or vinyl.
The cost is on a track by track basis (£90 per track) with a fixed price for vinyl masters depending on the format.
If you fancy giving the service a try go direct to the Abbey Road Studios online mastering service. Your band may not be as good as The Beatles but at least you can get your music mastered at the same place that they did.

Birmingham, Bristol, Cambridge, Coventry, Derby, Leeds, Liverpool, London…
