“Paul Baily at Re:Sound has been responsible for remastering both the critically acclaimed BBC Legends and Medici Masters labels as well as numerous other prestigious projects. He embodies his early professional training and experience gained at Abbey Road Studios with the flexibility of an independent producer. His track record is impeccable and I would thoroughly recommend him.”

John Pattrick – Director, International Classical Artists (formerly BBC Legends)

“We spent three days in Oxford with Paul as our engineer, and also doubling as our producer on the first day.  He was so friendly, very organised and had everything ready to go when we arrived.  As a quartet we were naturally feeling anxious about how the next few days would go, after all the preparation and costly planning.  Paul could not have put us more at ease “humouring” all our neuroses about every little detail, whilst also keeping us on track and offering reassurance that we had achieved what we were after.  He kept detailed notes himself, but also adapted quickly to working well with our producer, who arrived the following day. 

The subsequent mixing work, whilst time-consuming for him, was carried out with an equal sense of calm and attentiveness to all our comments.  We had definitely formed a bond, which meant he was just as keen as us to get the end result just right.  Paul clearly has a love for music of all kinds and a respect for the musicians he works with.  Many thanks for doing such a great job, Paul!  Marici Saxes.”

“I’ve worked with Paul Baily for over 20 years and his huge experience, great attention to detail, technical mastery and above all great ears and attitude have meant highly successful projects together.” Stephen Johns, Artistic Director Royal College of Music

“We were recommended Paul Baily by a trusted producer, and were not disappointed. His recordings invariably sound beautifully natural, warm and open, capturing as much of the excitement of the performance as it is possible to do. The results, especially Ilona Timchenko’s and James Barralet’s debuts, are among my favourites of Landor Records’ recordings. He is also a very sympathetic colleague and a calm presence in the control room.” Robert Ogden, Landor Records

“The transfers of Leech’s flawed acetates are by Testament’s miracle-worker-in-chief Paul Baily. Examples of what the acetates sounded like before treatment are cheekily offered as an addendum to disc 2. The transformation is astonishing. Perhaps Mr Baily should have a go at Strauss’s 1929 Berlin Staatskapelle recording of Don Juan.” Richard Osborne, Critic

“I have known Paul for over 20 years and I cannot overemphasise how excellent it is to work with a classically trained musician of Paul’s calibre, who has the technical skills and knowledge to edit and remaster recordings to the very highest standards expected by the Testament label.” Stewart Brown, Testament

“Paul Baily’s splendid transfers have brought us as close to the actual 1950s sound of the Salle de la Mutualité or the Salle Wagram as we are ever likely to get.” Robert Layton, From Andante magazine re. ‘Leonid Kogan in Paris’ (Testament Records) Beethoven: Violin Concerto in D Mozart: Violin Concerto No.5 in A:

“Paul’s affable, yet professional, manner make him an invaluable person to communicate effectively to students.  With his extensive and varied experience in recording and editing music of many different styles his input is always valued by the students.” Ben Burrows, Programme Leader – Music Production, University of York St John
