About Audio Realm Studios
While we are a new company, we have been working in the recording industry for the better part of two decades. Audio Realm Studios LLC has expansive knowledge and experience with all types of recording situations, including recording bands / solo projects for demos and albums, and providing advertising consult to many local businesses and corporations. Chase West majored in Advertising at University of Texas in Austin prior to his studies at Houston Community College in Audio Engineering. At HCC, Chase worked with some of the city’s top engineers to learn the ins and outs of the recording process. Together, the two have created several successful productions; some that have even led to record deals in Nashville. In 2016, the pair travelled to Nashville and worked hand in hand with the professionals at Omnisound Studios on a commercial Ep release. While in Nashville, he was able to hone their craft even more and was consistently releasing radio quality work out of their smaller space. Even though their product was consistent and at industry standards, Chase decided to relocate and rebrand in a bigger standalone facility where they had control over the design and acoustical properties of the building to better serve our clients. We are currently booking sessions and looking forward to servicing Ft. Bend and surrounding counties.
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 was studying Audio Production at HCC, where he worked on several projects with some of the city’s top teaching engineers. In 2014, West became signed to a record label in Nashville after submitting some home recordings that he and his band had produced. While in Nashville, Chase got some firsthand experience and knowledge working with OmniSound Studios on the EP. While working in Nashville, he was able to collaborate and learn from some of the industry’s top names and further perfected his recording and mixing abilities. Upon returning to the Houston area, Chase and former bandmate decided to open Audio Realm Studios, in the heart of Ft. Bend County. As a member of NAMM, The Audio Engineering Society, The Texas Music Office, and the Texas Country Music Association, Chase has continued to work symbiotically with business owners, promoters, musicians, and local governments to increase awareness and resources for the music and arts community.

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 in 2018, 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.
Born in Houston, Cameron began his engineering journey at the age of 13, where he cut his teeth recording local punk/metal bands and hip hop artists from his school. Eventually he turned his attention to EDM and other forms of electronic music, where he was able to focus extensively on sound design, synthesis, and engineering powerful bass. Recently, Burke has been exploring film/television scoring and dissecting modern pop production/songwriting styles to hone his craft even further. Since joining the Audio Realm team, Cameron has led several recording projects and delivered invaluable creative feedback for many of our clients.
