Mastering Studio, Cambridge UK
This was my first time working with Chris, he took my song and made it sound better then the way I had imagined it would sound. I’ll be sure to be working with him in the future as my mastering engineer.
I am very happy for having found Chris, and I have made him my go to mastering engineer from the very first collaboration. And here is why:First, quality. He really cares about my music and delivers a perfect master that enhances the emotional power of my scores. He loves his job and achieves a grade of excellence that can only be the result of true passion and talent combined. Second, dedication. The human part is for me as important as a high quality work. He is efficient but also gentle and openminded, always ready to help.If you need a mastering engineer, Chris is is your guy.
Chris offers more than mastering. He offers competitive rates, insight on your project that is accompanied by compassion, care and creativity. The best way to work with Chris is to tell him about your project and let him use his creativity to take your music to the next level. I was more than happy with the master and we are exclusively using Chris Pavey Mastering to master all of our tracks. He is that good!
Chris Pavey is an artful engineer—able to uniquely capture the feel and vibe we were working toward with our album project in a manner that was not over-produced or pre-programmed, but tastefully, artfully and beautifully crafted. Crisp, clean, full, wide, enhanced, and resonating—these are the words I would use to describe the final product that was our latest project in Chris’ hands. Although each song received individual custom attention, the overall collection had a coherence that one desires from an album of songs. His rates were reasonable and competitive and his commitment to the process, and desire to work with us to achieve our dream sound, clearly defined the passion he has in his work as a mastering engineer. We highly recommend Chris’ services and we will most definitely turn to Chris for our next project.
After talking to Chris about mastering our EP I was won over. He understood the dynamics, the groove, the rythm. The whole vibe. He didn’t want to mess with it, or compromise it or put it in a box, just wanted to enhance it. So... we gave him a chance. When I heard it, I was blown away! Chris clearly knows his art well but I think what sets him apart is his approach : “Its not right till its right”. If you believe in your music Chris is the man to go to.
When I hired Chris I was very surprised by his competitive rates. I was honestly expecting him to just slam an EQ and a limiter on my tracks, but I was very surprised. The dynamics I had worked very hard with were retained, if not enhanced, and the tracks sound fuller. He also offered me unlimited recalls so I could get the sound exactly the way I wanted it. If you’re going to hire Chris for your mastering, I recommend you give him some creative freedom to get the best out of your music.
Chris is a very friendly and down-to-earth guy with a professional approach. Immediately, he showed a thorough interest in what we were working on and made the environment extremely comfortable to be in. His enthusiasm and understanding is reflected in the final product and I would highly recommend him to anyone.
I worked with Chris during both the recording and mastering stages of my first album. During the mastering sessions, it was great to sit and watch the tracks come together and become a finished product. Chris allowed these things to happen in a completely professional and efficient manner, always checking that I was satisfied with what was coming out of the speakers.
This was the first time I had sent in a piece for Chris to master and it certainly will not be the last. After sending the composition to be mastered, Chris sat down and worked on what he thought needed to be done to the piece but did not finalise it until I had a say in the process. It was very informative to sit down with Chris in a session and have him talk through his thought process and techniques showing his versatility as a mastering engineer. Chris handled the mastering process in a professional yet friendly manner and created a welcoming environment. It was only when I was satisfied with the result, he was satisfied too.
The professional services that CPM provide, has certainly bridged the gap for ADC Musical Recordings, when it comes to finalising our musical productions. Chris pays close attention to detail and enhances those special elements of a mix that producers, engineers and artists want the world to hear. His services will be needed again.
After using CPM previously for the Zaika release, I approached CPM regarding mastering work on a 4 track EP, which my record label was releasing by Southampton based EDM producer Scullious. The artist and myself discussed with CPM exactly what was needed in the final masters of each track before the EP went live. The final outcome of each track was in my eyes, perfect. Chris had delivered what we asked of him with each track rich in clarity and depth and leaving myself and the artist extremely proud to release such a professional sounding EP.
Having worked with Chris Pavey Mastering on a number of my records I can say that I have been thoroughly impressed with the level of professionalism that is applied to each of them. That is why Chris is my first choice when I need new music to be mastered.
I have used CPM for the mastering of two of my tracks, and have been thoroughly impressed by the quality of engineering and professionalism displayed. Chris ensured that I was satisfied with my final master, and was happy to make any changes I required. I would highly recommend CPM, and plan on using his services again for my future projects.
This was not the first time I have sent my work to Chris for mastering and will not be the last. He freely pointed out any errors in my mix so I could correct them before mastering. Chris is a very professional individual and I have and will continue to recommend his services.
