Here at Deluxe Mastering we found ourselves EQ’ing with two hands again using the Sontec MES-432 mastering EQ while the stereo-ganged 6-band Sontec MES-462 EQ was out for a week being serviced. The 432 was formerly owned by US mastering engineer Joe Gastwirt, and the 462 from Frankford Wayne Mastering, NYC – both are original units used extensively on countless hit records.
While collecting his US double platinum plaque for The Neighbourhood, Tony “Jack the Bear” Mantz has also been finishing off projects for My Old Dutch, Sidewalk Diamonds, The Moonmen, Buck Yeah, Stray Melodics, La Mar, Captive, Spencer P Jones, Myyth, Headclouds and a double mix CD for international DJ / producer Hernan Cattaneo for the on-going Balance series.
