Jonathan Wyner, Chief Mastering Engineer and Company President. Jonathan has mastered more than thousands of  projects beginning in 1985 spanning every musical idiom (and some non-musical idioms as well!). Jonathan holds an AB in French Horn and Composition from Vassar College, Poughkeepsie NY.

An instructor at the Recording Workshop in Chillicothe, Ohio and Professor at Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. A Recording Engineer since 1983, Jonathan began his career as a Mastering Engineer in 1985 as the compact disc was becoming a reality. He studied digital mastering with one of the pioneers in the field for 5 years prior to establishing M Works Mastering. His credits range from the extremely well known (James Taylor, David Bowie, Aerosmith, Kiri Te Kanawa), to the more idiosyncratic and independent artists/labels (Aimee Mann, Tiny Tim, Rahsaan Roland Kirk). In 2005 Jonathan received a Grammy nomination for producing a program for Deborah Henson-Conant with orchestra entitled Invention and Alchemy that also aired on PBS nationally. He has several firsts/superlatives to his credit including mastering the first interactive CD Game (Play It By Ear, Rykodisc), what we believe to be the longest CD (80:32 for Razormaid Records), the first recorded opera (Madame Butterfly recorded 1912 by the BBC). His skills extend to premastering for CD-ROM as well as forensic and restoration work using Izotope RX and Sonic Solutions' No Noise system. Jonathan prides himself in the fact that he is among the elite group of mastering engineers to have run the marathon in under 3 hours repeatedly.

Jonathan is currently serving as Education Director at iZotope, on the BOG of the AES and a NARAS member as well.
