About Mike Senior

Mike Senior (Cambridge MusicTechnology)

Mike developed an interest in recording while studying for a Music Degree at Cambridge University, and worked as an assistant engineer at a number of London studios including RG Jones, West Side, Angell Sound,By Design. Following an MSc in Music IT at City University, he landed a full-time job as in-house engineer at Great Linford Manor Studios, working with artists such as The Charlatans, Reef, Therapy, Nigel Kennedy, and Wet Wet Wet. In October 1999, he moved back to Cambridge and joined the editorial department of Sound On Sound magazine full-time, where he was Reviews Editor for six years and presided over the launch of the popular and Mix Rescue columns, and since turning freelance has also been instrumental in developing the regular Session Notes and The Mix Review features. He now devotes his time to recording, mixing, writing, and developing multimedia educational resources, and hosts two monthly podcasts: the Cambridge-MT Patrons Podcast and Project Studio Tea Break. His best-selling books Recording Secrets For The Small Studio and Mixing Secrets For The Small Studio provides a complete recording and mixing course based around the techniques of hundreds of the world’s most famous producers.
