Interview with Mike Marsh, mastering engineer at The Exchange studio
I recently added a new interview to my Oasis website and thought that some here may find it of interest; Mike Marsh mastered Oasis's album Be Here Now in 1997 and The Masterplan b-sides compilation in 1998, and has based this article on detailed notes he took during the original sessions at the Exchange studio. He has kindly provided lots of detail on his mastering techniques as well as the specifics of his work with Oasis. Many thanks to him for finding the time in his very busy schedule to contribute!
Exchange has done some of the Best records ever.
Too bad Marsh thinks the Oasis is his best cuz I think the album sort of sux. But then again I don't sell millions of records so take that for what its worth.
Glad you liked the article! I will pass on your kind comments to Mike.
Like Mike says, I hope we do get to see hi-res music made available for widespread download in due course. I know there are various specialist sites that offer 24/96 downloads (HDTracks etc) but it would be great if iTunes got behind it.
