Restoration Engineer credit

How might I add a “restoration engineer” to a release?

It would be nice if there were a “task” field under the “Engineer” role, like there is for “Producer.” Since there isn’t, I’d say the annotation may be the best choice.


Yes, I was looking for that.

I wonder though why we are so restricted in the roles that people can have. I understand the idea of consistency, but the other side is not collecting information “properly”. For the most part, it seems MB has most all roles covered. I thought to place this credit under Mastering / Re-Mastering, however, the remastering credits differ from the restoration credits.

I also understand that MB does not put much focus on mastering aspects. I try to keep that in mind. I also realize that many times, detailed credits on engineering and mastering are not included in the CD booklets, so having such data is also somewhat rare.


Yeah, I’ve never seen or heard of “restoration engineer” in relation to music.

I’d add it as generic “engineer” relationship (or maybe “audio engineer”) and add a note to the annotation. But a task field like @Beckfield suggested would be best.

Btw, what is the difference between “audio engineer” and “sound engineer”? This looks confusing, seems to be the same for me.


A sound engineer is both valid in form and its premises are true. :laughing:


Sound = live, audio = studio … in very generic terms.



Not arguing, just affirming that it seems rare. :slight_smile:

I was only showing an example. Yes, rare, no disagreement there.
