Mastering Engineer

Tim Young ‘s career as an Audio Mastering Engineer blossomed at the start of the 1980s.

After delivering multi-platinum albums for The Clash, Sade, The Smiths, Elton John, The Pretenders and many others, Tim joined Metropolis Mastering with Ian Cooper and Tony Cousins in 1993.

Tim had already had seventeen successful years at CBS Studios, which eventually became The Hit Factory. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity enabled the three engineers to finally fulfil their dream working environment, featuring state of the art monitoring married to a transparent and musical signal path plus large, comfortable mastering rooms featuring natural daylight.

In 2008, Tim became the first non-US mastering engineer to win a Grammy Award (for his 5.1 Surround Sound mastering on The Beatles’ ‘Love’ album). In 2011, he also won the Music Producers Guild mastering engineer of the year award. Now with over twenty years of experience in mastering at Metropolis, Tim is in constant demand from all levels of recording artists. His reputation as a classic ‘all rounder’ who enjoys working on all styles of music, means he is adept at bringing his creativity to any genre.

His more recent credits include Elbow, The Killers, Take That, Manic Street Preachers, and 5.1 mastering for Queen. For more details, see the list below.
