Here is some background on Michael Romanowski:
Michael Romanowski is the owner and chief mastering engineer at Michael Romanowski Mastering in San Francisco, California. He started his audio career as a live sound engineer in Nashville, Tennessee, and quickly went from that to recording, mixing and producing. In 1994, he moved to the San Francisco Bay area and started his mastering career at Rocket Lab, with Mastering Engineers Paul Stubblebine and Ken Lee. Learning from two of the best in the business was invaluable to him as his career moved forward. Michael helped start the mastering room at Sausalito’s Plant Studios in 1999, where he was the chief mastering engineer. In 2001, Michael reunited with Paul Stubblebine in Paul’s mastering room at Hyde Street Studios – the famed Studio C. In 2003, Michael and Paul built two state of the art 5.1 mastering rooms at the former Coast Recorders building, now known as 1340 Mission, where he continues to work today.
Michael is President of the NARAS Board of Governors, and is the Chairman of the chapter’s Producers & Engineers wing. In addition to his service in music community, Michael teaches at San Francisco State University, and is an active panelist at conferences such as TapeOp, AES, CES, VSAC and NAMM . He is a co-owner of a music label, with Paul Stubblebine and Dan Schmalle, The Tape Project, which only releases direct copies of original analog masters on ¼” and now ½” analog tape. And, he continues to record, mix, produce and perform.
