About Us

"In session", circa 1985


Mark Lyon began as a recording engineer in the early '70's when everything was still done with analog "tape". A few years later he designed and constructed, along with his partner, a 16 track studio. After hundreds of hours behind the console, it was time to move on. He became involved in the design and construction of a full blown 24 track studio. Mark was the chief engineer and producer for many years at that location and worked with both local and major artists .

Mark has worked with many, many types of music including rock, jazz, blues, new age, punk, gospel, R&B, Ska, radio and TV commercials and everything in between. He is also a musician and song writer and plays guitar, keyboards, bass and drums. He currently has a 32 track studio built in his home.

While raising  a family of two kids, Mark branched out and learned how to write software. He is currently the owner of All Stats Software and has over a dozen software titles published.

With his love of music and experience with computers and programming, audio restoration was a natural. After some experimenting he decided to start Audio-Restorations. It has fast become a full time business with many, many happy and satisfied customers.

In creating Audio-Restoration, he also sought out the best software, along with new and vintage equipment to work with. Here's a list of some of the software and equipment he uses.
