Submit a Beatles in Mono vinyl box question to the Abbey Road team


SuperDeluxeEdition is delighted to have the opportunity to connect Fab Four fans directly with the engineers responsible for creating the forthcoming The Beatles in Mono vinyl box set.

As was apparent at the exclusive listening session we attended at Abbey Road, Mastering Engineer Sean Magee and Mastering Supervisor Steve Berkowitz have gone to extraordinary lengths to make the new vinyl box set sound as good as possible, including experimenting with tape head angles for optimum playback, referencing original 1960s cutting notes and laborious comparisons between original mono vinyl, the original mono quarter-inch tapes and the 2009 mono CDs.

Here’s your opportunity to ASK THEM QUESTION! Simply leave your query as a reply/comment on this post any time between now and Sunday 17 August and we will go through them and present the best and most commonly asked questions to either Steve and/or Sean for them to answer.

If you wish to direct your question specifically to Sean or to Steve please put their name in brackets before the question e.g. “(Steve) How did you get involved in this project?”.

We will do our best to get as many questions as possible answered, but please note we can not guarantee to answer every single question. One question per visitor please!

Sean Magee and Steve Berkowitz’s answers will be published the week beginning 1 September 2014.
