Welcome to the Audio archiving company

Hawkwind - 25 Years on

Mojo nomination catalogue reissue of the year - 2009

The Audio Archiving Company Ltd (A.A.C), was established in 1997 by owner and manager Paschal Byrne. This came about as a direct result of the closure of “The Decca Recording Centre”, where he had been working.

Paschal has worked in the recording industry for many years and his experience is wide ranging, from his early years as a cutting engineer, assistant maintenance / recording engineer, analogue to digital archiving engineer, to a more recent history of specializing in audio post production, primarily, re-mastering and re-mixing, both in stereo and 5.1 surround.

The company’s main aim has always been to offer an efficient and cost effective service to those record labels who value their archives / catalogue, and may wish to exploit them through second exploitation in both the physical and digital domains.

One of the company’s high lights came in 2011, when Paschal was nominated for a Grammy for his surround sound mastering work on Steven Wilson’s album “Grace for Drowning”.

‘I have worked with AAC for nearly nine years. In that time I have had the pleasure of working with a relaxed but professional company who consistently deliver masters and mixes of the highest quality for clients including Universal Music Group, EMI Records UK, Sanctuary Music, Eclectic Entertainment and Sony BMG Entertainment. AAC continue to play an essential part in the production and delivery of highly regarded expanded and remastered catalogue releases. I have no hesitation in recommending their services.’
