After 30 years of service as a mastering engineer, including 17 years as chief engineer at Hafod Mastering, Donal has stepped back from front line mastering. He is dividing his time between directing studio operations and homeschooling his children.
The super talented Gethin John is now in the hot seat and all of Donal’s clients are very happy with his work. Gethin also has the immaculate room at Hafod at his fingertips so the sonic excellence that is Hafod's signature sound continues.
Hidden away in rural Wales, surrounded by birds, trees and rolling hills, is a room with a stunning listening environment.
Pristine acoustics, incredible speakers and obsessive attention to the electrics and electronics means every fine detail of the music can be heard.
Old school analogue equipment and cutting-edge digital technology combined with passionate mastering engineers means incredible sounding masters.
