About Get Real Audio

Get Real Audio is run by Josh Clark, mastering engineer, producer and musician. You can find out more about him here.

The Studio

Get Real Audio is based in the lower basement of a residential Georgian townhouse. The single-room arrangement was designed for mastering and mixing, but is also perfect for recording small acoustic ensembles, solo performances and overdubs. Acoustics by Neil Perry @ Raw State Audio

The studio room has a couple of sofas, but if you want to get away from the music for a while, or finish off that elusive 3rd verse, there’s a lovely quiet courtyard at the rear of the building. Josh the engineer (and ex-chef) will even make some lunch for you.

Harvey the studio cat will no doubt be involved in some manner, either through moral support, or assisting with the mix in his own little way!

Elsewhere

Josh regularly undertakes recording and mixing projects in other locations. Some artists or labels own their own studios, or need to hire another studio for the purposes of recording larger ensembles or louder performances. Sometimes mobile recording equipment is used in locations such as churches, village halls, living rooms, or to capture a specific instrument (grand piano for example). It's also possible to record live concerts. Get in touch if you'd like to discuss options.
