Mastering Testimonials

"Wow! Man, that has some serious warmth in the low end... I'm just looking at the waveform and I can't believe how dynamic it is, whilst still being really loud and fat!... I must say I have never heard such an improvement on my own masters... At the very least I'd like to ensure that all my tracks get mastered by you... Easily the best mastering job i've ever heard ♥"

Steve Young (aka Hedflux, Broken Robot Records artist)

"I'm VERY happy with the results! You have a way of tightening the low end with a very characteristic and organic way that never feels too harsh or forced. They end up with a overall silky feeling that is very addictive and warm. I think the listeners will be very happy too! Thanks again! :)"

Dan Flict (aka Escape Into)

"...amazing talents and ability..."

Tim Healey (Surfer Rosa Records)

"Mastering is perfection, I feel like Colin OOOD should master every single release ever. Just striking sound separation and dynamics..."

Penzoline reviewing Portamento - "The Portal" (Cronomi Records/Review here)

"PHAT!...  I dont think I know anyone who gets the bass as nice as you do... Thank you for everything, I will definitely go for your mastering again in the future." 

Upavas Hauf (independant artist)

"Highly recommended! Colin is detail-oriented and certainly knows his stuff." 

Alexander (aka Basilisk, www.ektoplazm.com)

"I'm so glad to have mastered my remix album with Colin, I just love it, the best mastering I heard ever untill now. Thanks for such incredible work with my music."

Lupin (Spiral Trax album compiler and artist)

"...brilliant mastering."

Mushroom Magazine review of Cronomi Records: V/A - 'Erta Ale'

"Your master of our track Caught In The Zipper was great, how much would you charge to remaster all Slinky Wizard's back catalog?"

George Barker (Slinky Wizard/Flying Rhino Records)

"A very solid job... you still are the best for Goa i know"

Ward Vandepitte (Cronomi Records co-manager)

"I cannot recommend Colin enough. Being new to having material mastered he guided me through the whole journey of having my album done. The fact that there was a dialogue rather than just sending tracks off and getting them back was amazing! Giving me the chance to alter tracks I wasn't happy with (due to my premasters). His knowledge is as good as his end results. If you are looking for the final magic touch to be put on your tracks, then you have just found the man to do it."

Matthew Crick (aka Sephira)

"[Colin] knows his stuff inside & out, upside down, & sideways...." 

Michael Martin (aka Indidginus)

"Your master of our track was much better than Xxxx's version... like our original mix but enhanced, rather than just made as loud as possible" 

Felix Alexander (aka Neuroplasm)

"[The] mastering of the album is actually excellent, with a clear and crisp sound that feels very comfortable on the ears."

RTP reviewing Etnoscope - "Way Over Deadline" (Review here/FREE album download here)

"Thanxx for brilliant mastering on the Etnoscope Album...very good work, and its work like this that seperates the pros from the rest....big thxx... Have to tell you again, how exelent your mastering is on the Etnoscope album....i never thought that the Raz old Renoise tracks could sound so clean and neat as they do now, amazing work, and a inspiration to us all..!" 

Liam Dorff (Panzar Productions)

"Hey Colin, checked it out on a few decent sets of speakers today and i'm very happy with the job you've done! the low end and general mix is super tight!... you are certainly worth every penny and should i ever need mastering again i know exactly who to come to!... your mastering is the absolute tits!!" 

Will Railton (aka Bad Tango)

"Your mastering work is simply outstanding!! I absolutely love it. Thanks a lot for vastly improving the sound of these tracks."

Tom Williams (aka Tom Lurk, Liquid Records label DJ)

"I have to agree with the testimonials - especially Steve Youngs, in particular "I can't believe how dynamic it is, whilst still being really loud and fat!" Exactly what I was thinking after a few of my own tracks recently received the Stooodio Mastering treatment."

James Morgan (aka OLMEC, Broken Records artist)

"One of my dearest and most helpful tutors in the whole world :)"

Patricio Tron (aka Tron, Spun Records/Liquid Records artist)

"I love what you did with my Bibbulmun album and will be back early next year with a new batch of muddy masters :-)"

Michael Shanahan (aka miXile)

"Working with the Stooodio has been a most gratifying and wonderful experience. This is top-notch production that is to be trusted by all audiophiles around. Colin Bennun has a truly unique ear for all sounds possible. He has gone the distance, covering my needs as an artist, as well as meeting the deadlines when necessary... Thank you for all your hard work, it has not gone unnoticed... I look forward to more in the future!"

Waater Maark (Triplag Records label DJ and CD compiler)

"Sounds awesome, Collin has done absolutely banging job :) So happy! ... Why are you such a bad man? You have actually made it sound too good! What the hell have you done!! ... I've been hating the production on that track, but somehow you have managed to redeem it!"

Richard Carrigan (aka Mouldy Soul, Broken Records/Colony Productions artist)

The EU cookie law (e-Privacy Directive)

The law which applies to how you use cookies and similar technologies for storing information on a user’s equipment such as their computer or mobile device changed on 26 May 2011.

We’ve answered some of your FAQs in a YouTube video, summarising how you can comply and the approach the ICO is taking to enforcement. (Playing YouTube videos sets a cookie.)


ICO guidance

Updated in May 2012, our cookies guidance sets out the changes to the cookies law and explains the steps you need to take to ensure you comply.

Our guidance includes additional information about implied consent:

  • Implied consent is a valid form of consent and can be used in the context of compliance with the revised rules on cookies.
  • If you are relying on implied consent you need to be satisfied that your users understand that their actions will result in cookies being set. Without this understanding you do not have their informed consent.
  • You should not rely on the fact that users might have read a privacy policy that is perhaps hard to find or difficult to understand.
  • In some circumstances, for example where you are collecting sensitive personal data such as health information, you might feel that explicit consent is more appropriate.

European data protection authorities opinion

In June 2012, European data protection authorities (as part of the Article 29 Working Party) adopted an opinion which clarifies that some cookie uses might be exempt from the requirement to gain consent:

  • Some cookies can be exempted from informed consent under certain conditions if they are not used for additional purposes. These cookies include cookies used to keep track of a user’s input when filling online forms or as a shopping cart, also known as session-id cookies, multimedia player session cookies and user interface customisation cookies, eg language preference cookies to remember the language selected by the user.
  • First party analytics cookies are not likely to create a privacy risk if websites provide clear information about the cookies to users and privacy safeguards, eg a user friendly mechanism to opt out from any data collection and where they ensure that identifiable information is anonymised.

Cookies and personal data

Regulation 6 covers the use of electronic communications networks to store information, eg using cookies, or gain access to information stored in the terminal equipment of a subscriber or user.

Although devices which process personal data give rise to greater privacy and security implications than those which process data from which the individual cannot be identified, the Regulations apply to all uses of such devices, not just those involving the processing of personal data.

Where the use of a cookie type device does involve the processing of personal data, service providers will need to make sure they comply with the additional requirements of the Data Protection Act 1998 (the Act). This includes the requirements of the third data protection principle which states that data controllers must not process personal data that is excessive. Where personal data is collected, the data controller should consider the extent to which that data can be effectively processed anonymously. This is likely to be particularly relevant where the data is to be processed for a purpose other than the provision of the service directly requested by the user, for example, counting visitors to a website.

Confidentiality of communications and spyware

It should be remembered that the intention behind this Regulation is also to reflect concerns about the use of covert surveillance mechanisms online. Here, we are not referring to the collection of data in the context of conducting legitimate business online but the fact that so-called spyware can enter a terminal without the knowledge of the subscriber or user to gain access to information, store information or trace the activities of the user and that such activities often have a criminal purpose behind them.

Information to be provided

Cookies or similar devices must not be used unless the subscriber or user of the relevant terminal equipment:

(a) is provided with clear and comprehensive information about the purposes of the storage of, or access to, that information; and

(b) has given his or her consent.

The Regulations are not prescriptive about the sort of information that should be provided, but the text should be sufficiently full and intelligible to allow individuals to clearly understand the potential consequences of allowing storage and access to the information collected by the device should they wish to do so. This is comparable with the transparency requirements of the first data protection principle.

The Regulations state that once a person has used such a device to store or access data in the terminal equipment of a user or subscriber, that person will not be required to provide the information described and obtain consent (and discussed above) on subsequent occasions, as long as they met these requirements initially. Although the Regulations do not require the relevant information to be provided on each occasion, they do not prevent this.

Responsibility for providing the information and obtaining consent

The Regulations do not define who should be responsible for providing the information and obtaining consent. Where a person operates an online service and any use of a cookie type device will be for their purposes only, it is clear that that person will be responsible for complying with this Regulation.

Exemptions from the right to refuse a cookie

The Regulations specify that service providers should not have to provide the information and obtain consent where that device is to be used:

  • for the sole purpose of carrying out or facilitating the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network; or
  • where such storage or access is strictly necessary to provide an information society service requested by the subscriber or user.

In defining an 'information society service' the Electronic Commerce (EC Directive) Regulations 2002 refer to 'any service normally provided for remuneration, at a distance, by means of electronic equipment for the processing (including digital compression) and storage of data, and at the individual request of a recipient of a service'.

The term 'strictly necessary' means that such storage of or access to information should be essential, rather than reasonably necessary, for this exemption to apply. However, it will also be restricted to what is essential to provide the service requested by the user, rather than what might be essential for any other uses the service provider might wish to make of that data. It will also include what is required to comply with any other legislation the service provider might be subject to, for example, the security requirements of the seventh data protection principle.

Where the use of a cookie type device is deemed 'important' rather than 'strictly necessary', those collecting the information are still obliged to provide information about the device to the potential service recipient and obtain consent.

Wishes of subscribers and users

Regulation 6 states that consent for the cookie type device should be obtained from the subscriber or user but it does not specify whose wishes should take precedence if they are different.

There may well be cases where a subscriber, for example, an employer, provides an employee with a terminal at work along with access to certain services to carry out a particular task, where to effectively complete the task depends on using a cookie type device. In these cases, it would not seem unreasonable for the employer’s wishes to take precedence.

However, it also seems likely that there will be circumstances where a user’s wish should take precedence. To continue the above example, an employer’s wish to accept such a device should not take precedence where this will involve the unwarranted collection of personal data of that employee.
