Clarity Audio Productions

Clarity Audio Productions Clarity Productions is the recording studio of Blake Matthews and is based just outside of Raleigh. We offer tracking, editing mixing and mastering services for artists and occasionally local business as well.

I got my start as a songwriter, guitarist and vocalist in bands but I always had an obsession with what made a great sounding recording. From the production and performance aspects to the technical side and how to achieve the tones found on my favorite records, I was obsessed with it all. After a decade of honing my skills and meeting a lot of great people along the way, I started Clarity Audio Productions to bring the skills I acquired to others. I know that a great final product is all about capturing the energy and emotion of a song. For one song that may be a polished stacks of vocal layers and drums you can feel in your chest. For the next song, that could be more of a "live band in a room" vibe. I care deeply about each project and do not take lightly that you are trusting me as a partner to help bring your vision to life.

Mission: To offer reliability, open communication, a great recording experience and a great end product at an affordable price.

New Ludwig Black Magic for the studio. This thing is a beauty! I often say that I can make almost any drum kit sound great on a recording between heads, tuning, micing and mixing but the 2 things I never want to cut corners on are the cymbals and the snare drum.

Stairwell Reverb Chamber

Check out the cool sounds from this stairwell I use as a natural reverb chamber when I need a cool and unique sound. My guess is that it's about 20 feet from floor to ceiling. This is a clip of Chris Kmak recording a cool outro to a track we are working on.

January was a crazy busy month! I finished getting everything at the studio setup, tracked Sons Of Sam, Chris Kmak and started work on a song with Mitch McCall (and tried to work on my own music here and there as well). February is gearing up to be pretty busy too. Mixing a TV commercial today, wrapping up Sons Of Sam's mixes this week and finishing up the edits on Chris' track. I've got Atlantic Lungs coming in soon as well! My friend Becky is killing it on getting the studio's website together! There's still some openings in March available for anyone looking to make some awesome music!

Big thanks to my friend Becky Isbell for making this logo!
