Francis Cleary on SoundBetter

Experienced audio engineer / producer with over 3 decades of mixing, mastering and recording.

Music has gifted me a great life over the course of my career, and now I am continuing with the next chapter:
So here I am offering Mixing & Mastering plus editing from my little studio in Vietnam.

I have a no nonsense approach to producing, recording & mixing, and address each song, style and artist on their own merits and sonic space, with no pre-conceived ideas of what the product should be, allowing for the individuality of a song or artist to come out and shine. I work with you to achieve the outcomes you’re after.

Here's a brief overview of my background,
I have worked extensively throughout Australia as well as stints touring through the UK, Europe and Asia, both in the studio, live sound, as well as performing, from the little known artist to the biggest names in the Australian industry as well as many established international artists. In all styles of music, and in all facets of the industry, mixing Jazz n Blues, pop/rock, traditional Irish, folk and country with even some dub reggae thrown in, and recorded, mixed or mastered records in all these styles and more.
(Click on more samples to hear examples of different works, including songs from the APRA awarded jazz work of the year 2008 CD)

I’d love to get involved with you on your next project or current one. So drop me a line, have a chat and let’s see where it takes us. Music is an Adventure

    I have known and worked with Frank since the late 1980s.
    In 2005, I had a big band,project to record 2 albums of original music with the “Moovin’ and Groovin’ Orchestra, I contacted Frank to be part of the team, he was part of everything, the setup, the recording, the mixing and mastering.
    The albums we produced were, “Zoo Music” and “The Gig Suite”
    Frank is good to work with and if you have any recording needs, he’s your man!

    I worked with Frank in the studio, on stage and as a live engineer for over a decade and have nothing but the highest praise for him.
    Frank's knowledge and understanding of music from a technical perspective is second to none; he has produced a heap of world class recordings including my debut album from 2003. The recordings still stand up to this day and will continue to do so because of the quality of his work.
    I'd have no hesitation recommending Frank for your next recording project.

    Frank was our go-to live and studio engineer throughout our ten year stint as a professional touring act throughout Australia. Those Bloody McKennas’ sound and trajectory benefited greatly from Franks experience and passion in every context we utilised him. We hired Frank at every opportunity until we disbanded in 2007. Aside from his professional enthusiasm and dedication, we cherished just having him on board, as his happy nature and charming tales would keep us uplifted and entertained. We would recommend using Frank for any project you may have to do with sound recording or production.
