Testimonials from some of our clients!
A few years ago, I was in a pinch on a project/album we were working on for a friend I also didn't have much time to complete it. I contacted Chris Andrews, we came to an agreement quickly and easily, and from the first conversation I had with him, I knew he would treat the project as if it were his own. Chris is a gem with his clients: very personable, a hard worker and his turnaround time is especially fast (understanding that my biggest complaint in general about mixing engineers is how incredibly slow they can be). He was a pleasure to work with, our client was more than happy, and he even made affordable suggestions for high quality mastering engineers at a reduced rate. I highly recommend Chris Andrews for your next audio project.
As a music writer for a major newspaper in Denver, I get asked quite often by musicians about what studios they should work with. If that band asking me is any sort of rock band, I never hesitate to recommend Monument Sound Studios for tracking or mixing and I have never been sorry. Monument Sound Studios has done mixing on numerous major label projects as well as some of Colorado's premier local-based bands. Sure this studio might cost a little more than the Colorado Springs, Boulder, Denver home basement recording studios but, really there is no comparison sound quality wise. Why spend less money just to end up with recordings that you and your band aren't happy with ya know? Oh yeah, owner Chris Andrews regularly instructs Pro-Tools master classes and is an in-demand pro audio clinician. Highly recommended studio overall. - B. Dutch Seyfarth

Can't beat it: Essentially, Monument Sound sits right in the sweet spot of the harsh extremes. Not only is the price great, the quality is top shelf! Not only is the facility easily the best in town, so is the engineer. Chris is not only thorough and highly competent, he is extremely FAST! You not only get what you pay for, but more... Chris can quietly craft custom bells and whistles and sneak out aces from up his sleeve. He can ride a creative wave with you, while making keen suggestions to guide your project away from hazardous terrain. All without killing the flow. It's like Borriello Bros to everyone else's Blackjack... Guiness to Natty Light... La Casita to Taco Bell... Jun's sushi to that stuff at Safeway... Ya feelin' me?!! Top spot in town, for sure. - Spire Records LTD
"Chris not only has the gear and the space, but the know how to move along any music project from session to mix/master. His value is built in via his efficiency. He moves around edits faster than most without sacrificing accuracy and feel, and he keeps bands moving forwad without making them feel like they are on the clock. I recommend him highly, and will be back to Monument Sound in the future."

"If you are ready for the next level and looking for more than just a "knob turner" then Chris cannot be beat for the amount of talent he delivers for the price. Chris is the best unrecognized producer talent in Colorado that is as passionate about your project as you are; he is willing to work with you and your budget. We can't begin to tell you how refreshing it has been working and creating with Chris in the studio. - all capitals
"Monument Sound is a must for any and all musicians and artists that desire the best in quality engineering, equipment, atmosphere and comfort... You simply will not find more attention to detail, Chris is amazing!!" - Buck25
"The sound speaks for itself! A true mix master and perfectionist at everything from acoustic/vocal ensembles to Japanese Death Metal :) Recording a song from scratch with Chris, Kevin (drums) and Kristie (piano) was honestly one of the most fun & positive studio experiences I've ever had! I highly recommend checking out www.monumentsound.com for your next recording or mixing project!" - Bobby Doran
