Chris Coulter on SoundBetter

Hi 👋, My name is Chris. I'm a music producer and engineer and I own Decimal Studios. I've been producing music professionally for over twelve years. In that time I have worked on over 350 releases, from small unsigned solo artists to major label Classical Brit and Ivor Novello award winners.

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 know what it’s like to work in the studio where the engineer lacks in skills and is more interested in their watch than the song. That's why I put absolutely everything into every single one of my productions and I put every effort into bringing the artist's creative vision to life.

    This is the second time we've worked with Chris and we couldn't be happier to have chose him again for working on our songs. He is very professional and attentive to what we need. Moreover he is always very disposable and precise. We are so glad of the result. He found our sound and we are very, very satisfied! It is exactly what we had in mind and what we expected after our first experience with Chris. We'll surely choose Chris for the next time! Highly recommended!!

  2. Review by Mircea S.

    Once again, Chris blew my mind! Super professional, great attention to details, always clear about time frames and delivery, there's nothing more I could ask for!

    Chris and Sam make an absolutely fantastic team and somehow always manage to bring out the best in any song. Recording at Decimal Studios is also a great joy, the atmosphere is perfect and relaxed, they've got everything you need for giving your best!

    I'll become a regular, no doubt about that!

  3. Review by Benedetta

    We were looking for a mix engineer for working on our 4-track EP and finding the right sound for our songs. We appreciated the works of Chris and when we started to work with him on the first song we understanded the he was the right choice for us! He is very available and precise. He is also very attentive to detail and professional. He manage to reduce totally the geographical distance. We are completely satisfied! Looking forward to working with him on the other 3 songs! Highly recommended!

    This man is an absolute wizard! The whole experience was so nice, from start to end!

    Chris will take your demo, and then will work with the most talented musicians around to turn it into a masterpiece! Then when you get to the vocal bits, it will sound incredible even before he gets to the mixing and mastering parts.

    If you're still hesitant about whether to press that 'Accept proposal' button, just do it! I promise it will be the best decision you're gonna make!

    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!

  6. 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!

  7. 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

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.
