McNally Smith Career Day Features Top Mastering Engineer

Legendary master engineer Chris Bellman took time out of his busy schedule at Bernie Grundman Mastering in Los Angeles to speak with students at McNally Smith about his specialization. The day featured two events.

First, Chris participated in a morning Q & A session which was open to the entire school. Students and faculty from the music performance, music business and recording technology programs were able to talk with Chris about his experiences as one of the most successful mastering engineers in contemporary American music.

In the afternoon, Chris presented a guest lecture to the students enrolled in Rob Schlette’s ‘Stereo Mastering Techniques’ class. Topics included perspectives on maintaining musical and listening reference points, genre specific approaches to mastering, and tons of great stories from Bernie Grundman Mastering.

Jack McNally, Bryan Forrester, Rob Schlette, André Fischer, Debbie Sandridge, Chris Bellman, and Doug Smith.
