RICHARD WHITTAKER

For over twenty years I’ve worked in frontline audio engineering. During this time I’ve established a solid reputation and am widely regarded as the ‘go to’ engineer for many heritage artists, producers & record labels. My unique collection of skills and experience coupled with my ‘can do’ attitude and dependable reliability, has kept me relevant whilst navigating an ever changing and somewhat capricious music industry.

2021 introduced the music industry to a new and exciting way of experiencing recorded audio - Dolby Atmos. 

Prior to this, surround sound formats were an exclusive club generally associated with the ‘HiFi’ elite. You could say the same about Dolby Atmos however, Dolby Atmos provides that elusive element…the binaural ‘entry level’. 

Simply strap on a pair of headphones and get involved!

2022 HIGHLIGHTS

Gilbert O'Sullivan
Driven
 

One of the greatest singer-songwriters of his generation returned in 2022 with his twentieth studio album, Driven. Recorded at the legendary RAK Studios by master craftsman Andy Wright.  Driven, being the first full band recording from Gilbert for quite some time also features duets from Mick Hucknall and KT Tunstall.  The Dolby Atmos/Spatial audio album mix was taken care of at The Bridge Studio by Richard Whittaker with Andy Wright in attendance.  To celebrate the release a special Dolby Atmos 'Listening Party'  event took place at Dolby HQ, London....such a fabulous night!

Traffic
Low Spark Of The High Heeled Boys

The fifth studio album by the legendary UK rock band Traffic.  This is without doubt one of my all time favourite albums…so, as you can imagine, it was an honour to be asked to mix the album in Atmos/Spatial audio.  The record had to be completely matched and mixed from the ground up - transfers from the original 1” 8Tk tapes were provided and away I went.   The main man Steve Winwood came over to The Bridge Studio to approve the mix and absolutely loved it!  To say I was chuffed is a massive understatement.  Check it out, it sounds incredible!

Pixies
Doolittle
 

Possibly one of the most influential albums of the 80's that went on to inspire and define the Grunge genre.  This time working with my long time colleague Kevin Vanbergen - we were charged with mixing the Atmos/Spatial version of this classic album.  10 or so years ago, Kevin had mixed the album in 5.1...which is where we started and eventually crafted an absolute beast of an atmos mix.   Respectfully retaining the harsh intensity of the original release but adding a brand new depth and dimension to the album.  This was a long and in parts tricky album to mix but boy did we nail it!
