R.I.P. Chris Bauer of Audio Mastering Service

I never thought I would be doing this but...

Chris was the head mastering engineer and owner of Online Mastering Studio | Audio Mastering Service, a successful online mastering service based in Passau, Germany.

Other than enthusiast audio professional he was a great drummer, a husband and father.

He left us suddenly last Sunday 17th of December 2017.
I am deeply saddened and shocked at the news, I wish this wasn't true.
May he rest in peace in the love of God, may his family find relief in this awful moment.

Goodbye my friend, I will miss you sorely - my heart is broken too.

that's making me sad :(
i've never met him personally, but we had some very nice chats about mastering gear & speakers & he seemed to be a very kind & humble person.

Hi guys, does anyone know what happened to Chris? I don't mean to be insensitive and pry into his personal life but he was a friend of mine, we worked together a lot and I don't have any contact details for his family and would greatly appreciate it if anyone could shed some light on his passing. I was extremely shocked and saddened to hear this. If you don't want to reply here just pm me.
Great guy and incredible engineer.
Thank you.

He suffered from a heart attack.

If you want to get in touch with his wife you can leave a message on his or her Facebook page. I do not know if his email is still being monitored.

I'm really sorry to hear this.

I haven't made music in over a year, so I just found out. I hope this doesn't come across as improper, but does anyone know who his former clients are using now for mastering?
