Engineer Peter Humphreys is regarded as the region's finest mastering engineer. Those in pursuit of premium sound will inevitably find themselves steered to Pete's room; few engineers offer the wealth of experience and perspective that Peter has accumulated over his three decades in the business.

Pete was playing music and touring extensively on the east coast during the early 1970s. He decided to pursue studies in audio engineering at I.A.R. (institute of Audio Research) New York City; over the course of the program Pete displayed considerable proficiency in engineering, and on the strength of his performance there, he landed a coveted staff position as recording engineer at Sigma Sound Studios, the virtual epicenter of hit record activity during the 1970s. Pete engineered for a steady stream of major label artists at Sigma. His credits include gold and platinum dates for Teddy Pendergrass, Lou Rawls, Phyllis Hyman, Billy Paul, and many others. In the early 80s, Pete teamed with Grover Washington Jr; the two went on to become close friends. Humphreys recorded a number of records for Grover and served as audio consultant on two of his world tours. (He would eventually go on to master several of Grover's later albums.) Pete was also instrumental in helping to grow Sigma's expansion into media services for radio and television, and audio sweetening for video and film. Demand continued to grow for Humphrey's services, and he found himself branching out to consult on disc mastering and album manufacturing in addition to his session work at Sigma. In 1986 Pete made the move over to the mastering side with the acquisition of Frankford/Wayne Mastering Labs of Philadelphia. Soon to follow was the birth of Masterwork Recording which provided him the perfect venue for his engineering skills. Since that time, Peter's mastering has enhanced thousands of discs and garnered praise from musicians of every type. With artists traveling from as far away as Canada and Italy to master with him, it's evident that Peter Humphreys is regarded as one of the best mastering engineers in the business.
