Welcome to the studio

Audio Engineer Clive Knightley

Like you, I have a passion for music production and I'm really inspired on how these top-tier songs are created. I love the whole process of writing, recording, producing, mixing and mastering. Luckily enough, I have been able to work with many talented producers and songwriters since I started this online audio service back in 2009.

I have been previously signed to P-Vine records, a Japanese record label. I have fifteen years plus experience and have worked with many artists from all around the world.

Mixing has now become my main speciality and focus, it's my favourite part. Realising how in-depth and important it really is. I love the fight (challenge) in getting that desired and sometimes elusive pro sound, it's very addictive. I still get a real buzz working on amazing projects, the feeling you get when a mix comes together, there's nothing like it.

Thanks for stopping by. I look forward to maybe working on your music. Remember, for new clients I can provide a free preview mix or master. Please email me to arrange. Thanks again, Clive Knightley.

I upgraded my monitors from the Focal CMS65 which were also superb. The PSI's just point out the problem areas that little bit more! Analogue compression on the full mix and special elements like vocals still trump the digital versions in my opinion.

Thank god for DAW's, complex side chaining, ducking and automation runs. Not possible in the analogue realm.

My studio advantages

1. STUDIO DESIGN

18-inch corner bass trapping. 20-inch bass trap at the rear wall. First reflection points traps and various ceiling clouds. This helps provide a flat frequency response for my mix room (So no peaks or dips in the sound spectrum). And superb stereo imaging.

2. WORLD-CLASS MONITORING

PSI Audio make some of the finest monitors. The A21-m help me choose the correct eq and compression with ease.

3. EXPERIENCED AUDIO ENGINEER

Great choices and know how comes with time and hard work. I have been mixing and mastering for over 15 years.

4. BUILDING CLIENT RELATIONSHIPS

Communication is key. Understanding you and your sound and how to get the best for your mix/master. If I can help in any way I will.

5. STUDIO SECRET - SONARWORKS

Even the best studio designs still have issues with unwanted coloration from studio speakers. Sonarworks Reference 4 fixes this with step-by-step speaker measurements and calibration.
