Interview with Chris Crerar Mastering

Analog or digital and why?
I use a mix of analog and digital. Sometimes more of one than the other. It depends on the genre of music and what I believe your song will benefit from.
What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
I'm not happy until you're happy! All mastering revisions are free of charge.
What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
I started as an assistant at Metalworks Studios in 2003. I became head engineer for a number of years and am now mastering.
How would you describe your style?
I like a warm punchy sound with depth and character.
What type of music do you usually work on?
All types. EDM, hiphop, rock, classical.
