Andy VanDette started at Masterdisk as intern, summer of 1984. By 2000 he was promoted to Chief Engineer, with a growing collection of mastering awards from the US and around the world.
Andy started out by supporting Masterdisk's top engineers. Beginning with digital editing and vinyl cutting, he learned the art of mastering from the best. His technical abilities helped him adapt to the individual style of each engineer, and the ever changing demands of the industry.
A classically trained musician and "band guy" of many years, Andy draws on his musical background for direction. He enjoys his Strat, PBass, and digi plugin heaven at home whenever time will allow. He listens closely to clients’ individual needs and looks forward to the challenge of completing their creative vision.
