ONLINE MASTERING Studio.

Peter Montgomery // Engineer.
"I have a love for great sounding music and much more for working on great sounding records....."
Find me on LinkdIn.
I first became involved in Mastering and cutting records for Irish and International bands and DJ/Producers in late 2004 on a Presto 6N manual lathe which I brought in from Russia and loving restored to working standard, which now has a home in a youth center in The Hague teaching young people to cut their records and keeping the art alive. After a number of years I have moved onto cutting on a world famous "Scully" stereo cutting lathe system with "Westrex 3DII A" cutting head and Hypex amplifiers.
I also have a keen interest in electronic systems. I have built many units for my studio using top industry components. The latest of which is the "Barry Porter NETEQ", which is used as a correctional EQ in my desk. I find a lot of zen in my solder iron and enjoy winding down with it and a cup of coffee.
I enjoy been out in the field as well as been in my studio. From time to time you can find me teaching local courses and lecturing at local colleges about audio mastering.
I have been involved in the music industry for over 15 years now, working as a mix engineer, a live engineer, mastering engineer and a session musician. I have also worked with many top 40 artist and have many top 10 albums and singles in Ireland and across Europe
. I am also an avid supporter of Independent Labels, Bands and Collectives and try to help out as many of these however I can.

Analog On // Richard Duckworth......
Peter at CHR is the consummate professional — our default mastering engineer. He has mastered two of my albums and several more albums and tracks for colleagues. CHR's range is broad—they are sensitive to a wide range of musical styles in a manner appropriate to the genre/sub-genre, and to the format. This mastering house uses an exquisitely-curated range of digital and analogue equipment to deliver a pristine product — CHR understands pedigree in pro-audio sound and always delivers a detailed and present production.
Chris Quigley // Cruiser
Excellent communicator, very responsive and a skilled engineer to boot....
In short, he's a dude.

Peter is my go to for my mastering needs. He understands and discusses exactly what you're after in a final master and will go to great length to make sure you walk away happy with your project every time. You gotta love that analog sound.
I offer a range offfer a range of services to suit your needs. Below you will find a listing and explanation of what we offer.
To commercially release your music to CD you need to create a master that follows the 'Red Book' CD standard. We can create that master for you. As well as dramatically improving the sound quality of your music and getting the level between the tracks to match perfectly, we will sequence your tracks in the right order and edit them to create a smooth and enjoyable musical experience. The master created can be delivered to you as a physical CD-DA master or as a DDP image file set. Either way your master will comply to the Red Book standard and be ready to use for duplication or replication.
Mastering for a single track is 70 Euro including vat (23%). If You have an album or EP for mastering please use the link below to ask for a quote.
When mastering from stems you will submit multiple stereo tracks that have consolidated instruments. For example an artist might submit 4 stereo wav files ( One containing all guitars, one with lead vocals, one with drums, and one with background vocals, etc.. ). Our engineer would then work with each stem to set frequencies, adjust levels, and correct any imperfections. When finished the stems are combined and the final song is then mastered. Since we have access to separated groups of instruments there are more options for the engineer to make fine adjustments and correct problems.
We can also prepare your music for cutting to Vinyl. We will master your songs to their best in order to get optimal performances and the best sound quality results once on vinyl. The master will be delivered to you as a High Definition file. We will usually supply one sequenced file per side to use for the vinyl cut.
In house vinyl cutting will be available in the coming months.....
Audio restoration is the process of improving the sound quality of a recording. We use EQ, phase optimization, clip restoration, channel and level re-balancing, noise removal, and other techniques. Generally, audio restoration is done for CD mastering, forensic purposes, or even personal reasons. The intended use will determine the extent and method of the restoration.
