I’ll get you the best possible sound with my extensive toolkit and experience.
Reverb, EQ, dynamic EQ, compression (sometimes!), squeak reduction and a DDP with metadata – everything needed to perfect and publish. Every project is different so do get in touch.
With multiple takes recorded I can put together an edit that maximises your performance.
Perfect your sound
While audio is my passion, my training in classical music allows me to not only perfect your sound technically but do so with musicality. I grew up in a household of professional classical guitarists, later learning and then teaching classical guitar myself. Since then I’ve recorded, edited and mastered traditional and modern repertoire played by classical guitarists from around the world, working alongside producers including Gerald Garcia and Stephen Goss on recordings for Naxos and Tonebase.
Tell me about your project
“Oli produced my last four albums and with many more in the planning. Since our first encounter he has been my first choice recording producer to go to. Having been born into a family of guitarists he naturally learned guitar at an early age. However for his processional career sound engineering was his calling. His knowledge of the instrument makes him perhaps the most suited sound engineer in the world to produce classical guitar recordings. His ability to capture the guitar in the best way brought together with his editing skills makes the result of his work is nothing shorter than excellent.”
“Oli Whitworth is a consummate professional, and it was an absolute pleasure working with him on my album, “strive.” He provided invaluable advice regarding mic placement, gain settings, and various assorted technical issues. I’m still astounded at how clear and crisp the final recording turned out. His mixing and mastering process was fast and of astounding quality. Best of all, he’s one of the friendliest professionals I’ve had the pleasure of encountering in my music career. I can’t recommend Oli enough!”
“‘Oli is fantastic to work with and a brilliant sound engineer; he has mixed and mastered several of my guitar projects brilliantly, and is a wonderful person to have on set.”
