Independent UK mastering house A2B Production Solutions has selected Cool Edit Pro 2.0 digital audio recording, editing, mixing and mastering software as its primary platform. A2B founder Antony Barson said that he selected the software for its advanced functionality, system reliability and audio quality.

"We use Cool Edit Pro 2.0 to master to and from a wide variety of media, and it enables us to concentrate less on the technology and more on the creative aspect of audio engineering," Barson said. "As a result, we can provide our clients with cost-effective turnkey services, and we’re beginning to earn a name in the production community as a good place with whom to do business."

According to Barson, one of the features he finds most useful are the frequency-analysis screens. "I have been introduced to other editing systems, but I have found that they are not as comprehensive or intuitive. Features such as the frequency-analysis screens make my job a lot easier. Also, the envelopes and hard limiting features are invaluable for boosting volume levels and bringing the music forward throughout the track, while retaining at least some of their intended levels."
