I have been a professional freelance audio remastering and restoration engineer since 2006. I've worked with a variety of UK based independent record labels, including Cherry Red, Edsel, Futurismo and Vinyl 180. My specialty has been remastering and restoring classic Pop/New Wave/Alternative music from the 1980s, now branching out into other areas.

Scott Davies at Rubellan Remasters has a variety of credits on over 20 releases for audio remastering and restoration, as well as cover design, project origination and direction. Some of the remastered projects include such 80s hit makers as Dead or Alive, Nena, and more recently Altered Images, with others in production.

When I master a song I apply careful re-equalization, noise reduction (as needed), volume balancing and amplification. I am also a firm believer in dynamic range, so I refuse to brickwall any music with over-compression methods. Louder volume can be achieved with cautious compression but mastering the life out of a track so it sounds the same volume as a current top 40 hit on someones iPhone is not my goal. I require dynamically uncompressed source material as a starting point.

In addition to general mastering, my specialty has been restoring audio that is of lesser quality, including transfers of old cassette tapes, master tape transfers that exhibit various anomalies, and mastering from vinyl. I've earned a reputation of providing vinyl restorations that are often indistinguishable from master sources. Full restoration includes listening to each song in full and manually removing any unwanted artifacts, such as static pops or other distortions, and improving or repairing dropouts from the master source.
