" Paul Turney has won accolades for the Music Performance Research Centre by his brilliant, meticulous and delicately skilled operating of the historic music performance preservation programme that has been supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

I strongly commend him for his technical expertise, artistic awareness and exemplary professionalism. His conscientiousness is remarkable, his reliability just 100%".

   Sirensound Digital UK undertook the digitisation of a number of reel-to-reel tapes which form part of a larger music collection held by Wren Music.   Sirensound Digital UK took full responsibility for the difficult task of digitisation the tapes, including collection and delivery of the tapes. The work was completed to an exemplary standard, despite many difficulties with the tapes themselves.   

The files delivered back to us included copious notes about the digitisation and contents of the tapes, which was not expected, but will make the on-going work with the collection much simpler.

  Those at Sirensound Digital UK were extremely personable and enthusiastic throughout the process, explaining the technical processes with clarity and ensuring we were happy with the progress at every stage.  

I do not hesitate to recommend Sirensound Digital UK and would certainly use their services in the future.

Paul Turney

I ran the National Film Theatre for 35 years as controller of the BFI South Bank. During this time we recorded lectures and interviews given by some 2000 film makers and TV programme makers. I have been working on a project for the British Film Institute to edit all this recorded material and transfer it to CD format.

The BFI engaged the recording firm Chop 'em Out to do the transfers to CD. Paul was the engineer with responsibility for this very difficult job which was sucessfully achieved ahead of time thanks to his dedication and meticulous care. He is a highly skilled technician, very well informed and with great personal integrity.

I have continued to work with Paul since he set up his own company and have no hesitation in recommending him.

"I am a sound engineer specialising in audio and audio visual archiving, restoration and digital library storage for archiving and access; I have over 25 years of professional experience and my expertise is acknowledged both nationally and internationally.

I have known Paul Turney both professionally and personally since December 2000. We have worked together on major audio digitisation projects on which I worked as the project manager involving checking the security and professional set up of his facility, the standard of his technical work, and his ability to document recordings and transfers.

Paul's professional skills and his studio met the very high standards required of the projects on every occasion.

Paul's professional audio and audio visual experience is very wide. As part of the digitisation projects that I managed he has transferred items originated on obsolete technology, as well as current technology, to the highest practical technical and artistic standards. His work has been exemplary.

I have found Paul to be entirely trustworthy, has an open and helpful approach to his work and I would recommend him for audio and audio visual engineering projects without reservation. His experience is such that he is one of the UK's leading experts in digitisation work, for which he is particularly well suited."
