WEIRD JUNGLE
ENGINEER PROFILES

Katie Tavini

Katie Tavini is a Mancunian mastering engineer, now based in Brighton, whose credits include Emeli Sandé, Arlo Parks and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

Equally comfortable dealing with an artists' first ever release as she is with a seasoned pro's greatest hits – Katie's ability to bring out the best in a mix comes from her years of experience in studios, combined with her open communication with artists, engineers and labels that trust her to take care of their prized works.

Through her work, Katie has become one of the most in-demand mastering engineers in the UK. Since starting in 2014, the growing range of Katie's discography is testament to her versatility as an engineer. She is at home with everything from the heaviest metal to the lushest orchestral works and everything in between. A lover of music, Katie enjoys the challenge of taking on new styles and exploring new sonics.

Let’s be honest: any musician who says that they truly understand what a mastering engineer actually *does* is a dirty liar. Too often, when We Are Scientists get our mastered tracks returned, we’re not even really sure they’re any different — maybe they’re louder? Is there more low end? We could just be experiencing a placebo effect — for all we know, the engineer has simply renamed the WAV file and returned it, untouched. But when Katie masters our tracks, it’s like that moment in the Wizard of Oz, when Dorothy emerges from her cyclonic wreckage and the film goes from drab black and white into glorious technicolor. Our music becomes a multi-hued wonderland of singing, dancing, and general revelry.  The fact that she’s highly genial, hugely professional, and whip-smart are simply icing on the cake — she has allowed us to identify the attributes of a keenly-mastered track, even if we remain woefully ignorant of the wizardry involved in the process.
keith murray, we are scientists
