Brock McFarlane began his career in audio engineering by studying physics at the University of Alberta. He then moved on to study audio engineering at the Pacific Audio Visual Institute in Vancouver, where he received his honours diploma.
After interning with Shawn Cole, Brock went on to engineer at the infamous Hipposonic and Mushroom Studios. Assisting and engineering on projects including Carly Rae Jepsen, Marianas Trench, K-os, Hedley, and Hey Ocean.
Not satisfied to simply work with audio, Brock strives to understand the electrical and acoustic principles behind it. This desire has lead Brock to study and experiment with electrical and acoustical engineering, designing and modifying audio equipment as well as acoustic treatments for his own Vancouver mastering studio – CPS Mastering.
For Brock, audio engineering is both an art and a science, and he strives to show how interconnected these two worlds are, and how a foundation in the science of recording and mixing is essential to a career in the industry.
