About Me

We are a customer-focused, boutique recording studio, based in Austin, Texas specializing in all rock genres . Our goal is to provide a personal, yet professional, experience for clients working on their next single, EP or full-length album.

Chris Flores founded Sonar House Studios as a veteran drummer who wanted fellow musicians to have access to the top-notch recording services he wanted himself. He began playing drums 15 years ago, and started teaching himself audio engineering shortly after. He later attended audio engineering school to further refine and solidify his skills. In his professional experience, Chris has worked with bands and recording artists spanning across a wide variety of genres.

Fullness And Energy

Chris at Sonar House has done a great job mixing/mastering the songs we recorded and sent him. Throughout the whole process he’s very communicative and made himself available to answer any questions relating to the recording process. We tried mixing ourselves but it was missing something, the sound just wasn’t full. Chris brought out the vocals, mixed the drums and gave them presence, and gave the song a fullness and energy I couldn’t achieve. Overall very happy with his work and would recommend!

Took Track To New Level

Had Sonar House Studios master a track that was also mastered by a top notch studio and he's gone and outdone them. Really took the track to a whole other level. Definitely recommended, and for the price, absolutely more than value for money.

I've worked with Chris for 5 months. He has been mixing and mastering my podcasts. He is very responsive, very easy to work with, is professional and does a really great job, and is an important part of my team. You will be very happy to have him help you!

Sounded Amazing

Worked with Chris before and the experience was amazing. The final mix was that long sought after “glued” together feel. It just sounded amazing. He was also able to get very close to the rough mix I provided. That in itself is priceless! Looking forward to working with him again!

Took Project To New Level

I've worked with Chris at Sonar House on multiple projects in multiple genres, but mostly different flavors of indie rock. I've always been really impressed with Chris' attention to detail and ability to hear and tweak little things that make a big impact on the sound. His intimate knowledge of the science of sound and how to achieve certain tones and vibes has really taken my projects to the next level sonically. He's a great listener and good at capturing the sound in my head. I would recommend Chris to any band looking for an engineer who's chill yet professional and super smart.
