Chris Crerar Mastering on SoundBetter

Graduating from IAOD in 2001, I was hired on by Metalworks Recording Studios in Toronto, Canada. The studio has been host to many top artists including Guns N’ Roses, David Bowie, Prince, and Drake.

Mastering services available. In person or all online.
I use a combination of vintage analog gear and a wide variety of plugins (Weiss, UAD, Shadowhills). DDP masters, ISRC encoding and masters specifically for streaming are included.
Apple MFiT mastering is also available.


First mastering revision, if required, is free of charge.
