Who is responsible for Takelog and Lumberjack?

Takelog was created by Mark Rogers, when he was Senior Technical Engineer at the world renowned Abbey Road Studios. As well as running Takelog Systems, Mark currently works for the Warner Music Group. He started his career at FEBA Radio, then moved to The Decca Record Company before spending nine years at Abbey Road. He has a BMus degree in Music and Sound Recording from Surrey University (the "Tonmeister" course), and whilst at college he won the APRS prize for the best final year project (the design of a digital Peak Programme Meter). He recently completed an MBA with distinction from Imperial College Management School.

Mark spent seven years as the engineer in charge of Abbey Road Studio One, possibly the most famous classical and film-scoring room in the business. He has over twelve years of experience working with all the major record companies and recording outfits. He has worked with hundreds of balance engineers and tape operators, both at Abbey Road and on location across Europe and North America, observing their work methods and individual styles.

Out of this depth of experience and education came Takelog - a product that is easy to use, easy to learn, and never restricts the creativity of the user.

Mark developed Takelog because he wanted to use it himself.

Why? Because, when he started in recording, he didn't do it because he loved writing down timecodes and disappearing under a mountain of paperwork. No, he did it because he loved music. The chores were an unpleasant necessity. But with Takelog, he could do what he really wanted to do.... concentrate on the music!

And now, with Lumberjack, Mark has taken the pleasurable experience of using Takelog several stages further. More of the chores of recording are made easier or eliminated altogether, freeing up more time to be creative, freeing up more time to have fun!
