The Lead Engineer - Ryan Knopp
Ryan Knopp is a multi-skilled musician, producer, and engineer, with an ear for all things audio. Originally from Sugar Land, he studied at the Berklee College of Music in Boston (class of 2015), where he earned a bachelors degree in Music Production and Engineering. He interned at the Seattle based recording studio and record label AudioDose, and after graduation became an integral part of the studio, using his engineering and mixing skills to assist in making AudioDose what it is today. After moving back to Houston last year, he linked up with producer and studio owner Chase West to bring his talents to Audio Realm Studios. Whether he's on stage with his band, hooking up AV gear for events, or in the studio recording, Ryan is constantly doing what he does best.
The Producer - Chase West
Audio Realm Studios was created with the idea that anyone, brand new in the industry to seasoned veterans, should be able to get top quality recordings at an affordable price. In 2011, Chase West was studying Audio Engineering at HCC, where he worked on several projects with some of the city’s top teaching engineers. In 2014, Chase’s band came into the studio to record a demo. They decided to form a recording only band primarily to continue pushing the boundaries of their musical and recording abilities. The band that was once just a side project, took on a new chapter, when the recordings made in that home studio got them a record deal in Nashville, TN. While in Nashville, the band got to test their skill recording their own material at OmniSound Studios. There they worked with some of the industry’s top names and further perfected their recording and mixing abilities. The production team at Audio Realm Studios decided it was time to create a commercial studio in Richmond, TX after seeing a void in the Ft. Bend area that needed to be filled. “ We had been talking about re-branding and opening up a standalone location, but we wanted to find an area of town that was artistically thriving, but was lacking in recording resources. We found that in Richmond.” Says Chase West, a member of The Audio Engineering Society, Audio Publishers Association, and National Association of Music Merchants. Chase joined the Ft. Bend Chamber of Commerce shortly after opening the doors and have been actively working with other local business owners to help bring awareness to the arts and symbiotically enhance the economic climate of Ft. Bend and surrounding areas.
