Mixing Engineer with 5+ years experience working professionally in the industry.
For over 20 years music has been an obsession of mine. I have been continuously learning how to get audio sounding the best it can in any given scenario whilst retaining the feeling/emotion impact of the song.
Currently I am mixing at The Sound Cavern, a purpose built studio based in North West Bristol (UK).
Mixes can be delivered in Stereo all the way up to Dolby Atmos thanks to the latest 7.1.4 installation (Full calibration completed by Dolby UK).

5 ReviewsEndorse Si Ottway
Another song mixed by Si (first one using Soundbetter) and the mix sounds amazing again! Very professional and highly recommended mixing engineer.
I used to mix myself but after listening to what Si can do there's no going back! Also the first mix he did for me in Atmos completely blew my mind (and continues to do so). He just gets it and happens to be a great guy as well, highly Recommended!
Just finished mixing my new single in Atmos, sounds amazing! Will be using Si from here on.
Si Ottway is a great engineer with an excellent understanding of all contemporary audio processes and
EQ. Your mix always bigger as a result. Really easy guy to work with. Recommended.
Si has just mixed a song for me which surpasses how I ever thought it would sound! Very professional sound and service, highly recommended.
