    This guy is a BEAST! Nailed our mixdown 100%. After he sent over the initial draft, he invited us to join the mixing session via Sessionwire and we took it from there. Was a blast and we were finished quite quickly. The result is exactly what we had in mind. Thanks Dom.

    Working with Dom can only be described as a pleasure. His mix has undoubtedly pulled the most out of my project and has left me with a product that definitely surpassed my expectations. Dom's professionalism and expertise is complimented with his relaxed and friendly approach. I would immediately recommend him to anyone looking for a great mixer and am looking forward to working with him again on the rest of my EP.

    Dom is an exceptional mixer engineer, easy to work with, gives attention to detail and has a practical way of working with artists. He embraced any changes that I wanted and embodied my vision in the song. I trusted the process and my song turned out amazing. I highly recommend Dom Morley and will definitely collaborate with him again!

    I wanted a professional to do over a mix of mine as a learning experience. Dom Morley let me sit in on the session and I have learned far more than I had ever hoped.
    He is a patient and thoughtful teacher, a rockstar of an engineer, and very open minded about my feedback on his work.

    And... the track is banging.

    Dom did a brilliant job on an acoustic singer-songwriter track I sent him. Dom may charge more than others, and it may take a bit longer to get the job done, but I feel it was worth it. My track really came to life, full, robust, rich, sharp, and more. I'm very happy with what he did. Additionally, Dom was easy to work with and was eager to please. Many thanks. Dean

    Dom is amazing. He is a skilled mixer and turns everything around very quickly. He made a bunch of adjustments on a song I sent to him and was very helpful.

    Working with Dom is just amazing, he's a brilliant producer and mix engineer and has completely transformed the sound of our mixes to make them full on and radio ready!

    We asked Dom to carry out a critical review of the ten tracks on our debut album, which we had mixed ourselves. We found Dom to be an absolute professional, and very nice and easy to deal with.

    The reports he provided us with were amazing in their detail and will enable us to bring our mixes up to a pro standard.

    It's an excellent service, and I highly recommend Dom - we will definitely be using his services again in the near future!

Interview with Dom Morley

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. A: Amy Winehouse's 'Back To Black' album, that I engineered. I think we made something very honest that connected with a lot of people. I'm particularly proud that a lot of people really enjoyed the sound of that album, which was obviously my bit!

  3. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  4. A: Both. The sound of analogue, and the flexibility and speed of digital. If you can find a way to use both in your workflow then I think you've got the best of both worlds.

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

  6. A: That moment when you listen back to a finished mix and you know you've nailed what both you and the client wanted out of the track.

  7. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  8. A: Who are your influences? Can you send me some songs that have a similar sound to what you are aiming for?

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

  10. A: I spent 8 years at Metropolis Studios in London as an in-house engineer, and then went freelance in 2007.

  11. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  12. A: The Pixies were the band that first inspired me to make records, so it would have to be them.

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

  14. A: Auto-tune removes a little of the humanity in a vocal. Use it sparingly.

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

  16. A: It really varies - and I try to keep it quite varied as well, as I feel that's how I stay fresh and inspired. I can be electronic music, folk, pop or rock - my CV spans quite a lot!

  17. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  18. A: I have a mixing / recording studio in Oxfordshire with a wall of modular synths! I also have guitars and a few other interesting instruments to hopefully provide a bit of inspiration for the people that come up and work with me. I run ProTools HD (with a UAD Octo card) and have a selection of mics, premaps, compressors, eqs etc as I'm still a fan of outboard processing.

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

  20. A: I found Phil Spector and Tony Visconti incredibly inspiring producers to work with. The way they worked with arrangements I found fascinating, and I learnt a lot from them.

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

  22. A: Producing and mixing is what I spend most of my time doing. I sometimes engineer recording sessions for clients, and sound design and writing are becoming bigger parts of my schedule these days.
