Chris Coulter on SoundBetter

Creating commercial release quality productions that give artists the ability to connect with their fans…..

My passion for music and sound started whilst playing guitar as a child. Inspired, I studied 'Music Production' at the internationally acclaimed 'Academy Of Contemporary Music' in Guildford and later gained a BA (Hons) Degree in 'Music Technology'.

I have over 12 years of experience in the music industry; producing, mixing and mastering over 300 artists including Arcane Roots, Jamie Lenman, Arctic Lake, A Plastic Rose, Sun Arcana, Chanti Town, EMP!RE, Idles, Welcome The Howling Tones (ex-Hundred Reasons) and Guy Lawrence (now of Disclosure fame). I have also worked on projects with notable producers that include Dan Austin, Scott Harding, Dave Schiffman, Adrian Bushby, Sean Genockey, Space and Rupert Christie.

I have an excellent rapport with all of my clients and I like to build long-standing relationships. To produce the best possible records the artists need to feel relaxed and at home in the studio for their creativity to flow.

  1. Review by mariano s.

    It's our pleasure to work with Chris again. He's very reliable and provides top-quality work. Given all his projects he also made an effort to work with us within very small timeframe. I can't recommend him enough!

  2. Review by mariano s.

    Chris has done an amazing job on our songs. With other producers it's sometimes hard to get the right sound but Chris provided us with excellent quality tracks and even added some beautiful melodic parts of his own. Very highly recommended!

  3. Review by Donegan B.

    Chris' studio is in a warehouse on the Thames, London. He took my musical recordings and layered his own electronic drums excellently and bass too, we re-recorded vocals and guitar. He was extremely courteous, collaborative and can-do and is a real whizz with the Apple production software. He has a keen ear for music and great ideas.100% recommend

  4. Review by Andrew Groves

    Chris has been the producer for Arcane Roots since the very beginning, and we owe a huge part of our sound & achievements to his incredible production. From the very offset, Chris has endeavoured to realise our ambitious plans for each release, while subsequently reigning them in whenever they drifted or waned. He's an invaluable part of our team.

  5. Review by Adam

    I've worked with Chris on a number of projects over the years and can honestly say there is nobody I would rather work with when it comes to recording. The combination of his attention to detail and speed as an Engineer along with his ability to develop ideas as a Producer is unparalleled and always results in a professional sounding end product.

  6. Review by James L'Esteve

    Chris is so talented when it comes to producing and engineering. Having worked with Chris on a good few sessions now, his knowledge and ability to get the perfect sound and the perfect arrangements is really second to none! Chris has the ability to capture your music as it should sound and gives amazing results every time!

  7. Review by Andy

    Within SW London / Surrey I can only recommend working with Chris Coulter at Decimal Studios. The most incredible recordings, in the most comfortable surroundings, with someone who knows when to step in and advise (when appropriate), and become a friend throughout the whole process. The highest quality gear and the most professional service.

  8. Review by Jack Wrench

    Chris is an incredibly talented, dedicated and professional engineer & producer.
    I have worked with Chris on a number of records over the years and wholeheartedly believe that he is the best in the industry. The quality that he maintains time and time again is absolutely second to none!
