Fretless Audio on SoundBetter

Fretless Audio bring your home recordings to life. We specialise in mixing home recordings, giving your songs the professional sound they deserve.

Fretless Audio was founded to help musicians get great sounding mixes.

Home recording is now easier and more accessible than ever before. This is something I highly recommend trying - recording your own music can often be more creative, less pressured and cheaper than 'traditional' recording. 

Once you've recorded your music, you'll want to make it stand out. Hiring a quality mixing engineer can take your music to the next level. That's where we come in. Relying on industry experience, we'll work with you to create a great sounding record that you'll be proud of. Our process is 100% collaborative, with a focus on you and your music.

Get in touch, and let's have a chat about your music!

    Working with Jamie has been an absolutely pleasure. We were on the same wavelength from the get go and he knew exactly what to do to make my DIY recording sound amazing! I'm so proud of the album we worked on together and never expected it to sound this good! He's also a really nice person and very much enjoyed our chats! If you're looking for someone to make your project sound the best it could possibly sound, look no further than Fretless Audio!

    Jamie is a wonderful guy with a great ear and an extremely helpful approach! I was very nervous about working with someone new on my material and he immediately put my mind at ease. Not only do I recommend him for any projects, I look forward to working with him continuously. Thank you Fretless Audio! You're the best!!

    Worked with Jamie on our last few tracks now. Made our songs which were predominantly bedroom productions- into radio ready, big sounding records. Really sound guy (no pun intended) - would recommend his services for any upcoming or established artists looking for the best mixing and mastering for a really reasonable price.

    We worked with Jamie on a recent album project. Whilst the songs were mostly fully developed, Jamie brought an expert touch to the arrangements, sound and feel of the record to make something really special. Very easy to work with and makes the process much a more collaborative, artist-driven one than most producers. He's also a brilliant multi-instrumentalist if you need any overdubs. A young George Martin.

    Working with Jamie was great, he is that rare type of person who has all the skills but is also just really awesome to be around, he understood exactly what I was after and showed me he was passionate - I truly feel he went above and beyond for me, and I could not recommend him enough

Interview with Fretless Audio

  1. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  2. A: Depends! There's a place for both, and that decision is driven entirely by context - what will best serve the song in that moment.

  3. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  4. A: Working with a wide range of people, and helping realise their creative visions.

  5. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  6. A: Get in touch and ask lots of questions! It can be a daunting experience hiring someone that you don't know for the first time, but starting up a dialogue can (hopefully) alleviate some of those worries.

  7. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  8. A: I started out as an audio engineer recording and mixing local bands. Following this, I worked as an audio engineer for the TV and Film industry. More recently, I have been working as an audio consultant for TV composers, as well as mixing and producing for many DIY indie artists.

  9. Q: How would you describe your style?

  10. A: Modern-Retro.

  11. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  12. A: When recording from home, experiment with microphone placement. Move the microphone/instrument around until you find the best sounding spot in the room.

  13. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  14. A: Typically, Indie, Acoustic, Folk, or Indie-Pop.

  15. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  16. A: Critical listening.

  17. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  18. A: An intuitive understanding of what processing may serve a song best in order to enhance it, without ruining the original charm and character of the music.

  19. Q: What's your typical work process?

  20. A: When sent a project, I'll start out by editing the stems. Once this is complete I'll mix the record, according to the musicians brief. After this I'll send the track to the client to get feedback, and make any mix revisions.

  21. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  22. A: Focal and Sennheiser monitoring, with RME convertors and a range of analogue and digital processing equipment.

  23. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  24. A: George Martin, Brian Wilson, Glenn Frey.

  25. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  26. A: Mixing for clients who have recorded themselves at home.
