Matheus is a skilled mix engineer who can take a mix in any direction you may require.
I knew what I wanted to achieve for something and once I was able to communicate this properly, Matheus understood and in the end as to my directions he achieved the result I was looking for.
He also has a very positive attitude and is kind and humble, which is a huge benefit of working with him.
I'm normally someone who can be anxious to work with new mixing engineers as I have had bad experiences previously but boy did Matheus do his JOB!!! Such an incredibly talented mixing engineer!!! He got my vision down perfect and stayed enthusiastic during the whole process. This is someone who truly cares about their craft and enjoys bringing projects to life. He will care about your project just as much as you do and is very receptive to feedback. :) Highly highly highly recommend
Absolutely blown away by all of the details in this mix. I asked for it to sound big and heavy too, and boy did I get just that. Incredible, moving, outright awesome. And when I say details, I mean things like subtle panning in the effects, exemplary vocal delays, perfect sound staging, all in a super nicely glued together track.
Another work, another hit! Matheus is not only technically proficient, but emotionally invested in the quality of the projects - and this is a plus that we can't put a price to. In this particular case he showed enormous patience with us... and he never lost the positive attitude. Props and thanks are in order!
Matheus continues to grow under our very eyes (or ears!). Not only is he fantastic at his job, but his an absolute pleasure to work with - polite, detail-oriented, dependable, and tasteful. Can't say enough good things about him!
I am impressed by how seamless this experience has been for the second job now. I'm not sure if simply our preferences align or if this engineer actually knows magic. Either way, I am grateful for his technique as well as the creative flair he provided as an option for this specific job.
It is very clear that this engineer is extremely clever and good at what he does. I feel what makes a track good are the tiny details and there are so many little things Matheus did for my project that really took it to the next level. He also excelled at understanding my goals and visions and he gracefully accomplished these things.
It was an absolute pleasure to work with Matheus - not only because of his talent and ear, which you can hear on his demo - but his dedication, responsiveness and openness to make sure we did right by the songs. An experience we look forward to repeat!
Fantastic working with Matheus, great ear. Came out the gate with a massive improvement to the track and then we worked together easily to get it to close. Great demeanor and communication. Looking forward to next time!
A mixing engineer who is skilled and who knows what he is doing.

Working with Matheus is really nice because he knows what he does when it comes to mixing and mastering. I got really satisfied with the results of my songs that he worked on, specially my next one whose name is "Se o Beat tá On". He's patient and careful to listen to our vision to improve the song.
Matheus is one of the best audio engineers I know! I work with him for almost 2 years now and each production that he gets involved is of unprecedented authenticity. Matheus is able to give life to an idea with impressive results.

Interview with Matheus Antunes
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: At the moment, I am working on a couple of singles and a EP for Brazilian artists, as well as a Single project for a German artist.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I work 100% in the box, and I can achieve any sound I am looking for. But, both analog and digital technologies have their strengths and weaknesses.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I will always approach their project with professionalism, care, and attention to detail. This means that I will work closely with clients to understand their vision and goals for the project, and to deliver a mix that meets or, hopefully, exceeds their expectations. Clear communication and transparently throughout the process, providing regular updates and feedback to ensure that the project is progressing smoothly, is crucial.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I absolutely love to be connected with new artists and new songs 24/7. It is inspiring to be able to impact positively in a piece of music when you work as a mixer. There's something incredibly rewarding about taking a raw set of tracks and transforming them into a cohesive, polished, and impactful final product.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Most of them usually ask if their project makes sense to me and to what I do as a mixer. The answer to that will obviously vary from project to project, but, so far, I've always felt some kind of connection with what they are doing. Also, some other common questions are usually related to how should they deliver the files, turnarounds, rates and deliverables.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Usually I ask what is the direction they are going for, meaning what did they have in mind in production stage. Also, their influences so I can understand who they are as creatives. Anything that can get me closer to what is in the client's mind for the song. Also, I always ask what is their vision for the final mix.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Be sure to hear the work the provider have done. Once you know what you are looking for, your search will be easier. Also don't be afraid to make contact, you could get a lot by asking your personal questions to the professional, it can be a 'tiebreaker'.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Computer, Monitors, DAC, Headphone and Acoustics if that is considered a piece of gear.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: My style is characterized by a focus on clarity, balance, and emotion. I aim to create mixes that are well-balanced and clear, with each element of the mix occupying its own space. At the same time, I strive to create mixes that are emotionally impactful and compelling, with each element contributing to the overall emotional tone of the song. But my main goal is to serve the music, go for what the music needs.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Always listen and question yourself, "What am I listening?", "What do I feel I want to listen?", from there you can elaborate a path to follow. Also, try closing your eyes whenever you can, that helps a lot in improving your critical listening and perception of what is really going on. Controversially, when creating, not overthinking about it can be extremely helpful.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I would say that my strongest skill is attention to detail. Apart from being a creative process, mixing is also a highly technical process that requires a keen ear and a meticulous approach to achieve a great sounding mix. I pride myself on paying close attention to every aspect of the mix, from editing and cleaning up tracks to setting levels, applying any processing needed and adding effects. I believe that by being meticulous and detail-oriented, I am able to achieve a polished and professional mix that meets the expectations of my clients and creates a compelling listening experience for the audience.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: For the public, I make sure they don't notice the mix. But for the song I always bring the best out of it, making sure it is presented the best way possible considering the concept behind the production, and its final destination. I love a mix with great extension, depth and dynamic. That does not mean it can't be loud as well if it needs to. I would also extend and argue that the key to a loud mix is being able to properly work all those aspects in a mix.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Well, before getting into it, I just make sure I have all the files, everything is working and nothing is missing or needs to be exported again. As a mixing engineer who mixes 100% in the box, my typical work process involves organizing the session, editing and cleaning up tracks and balancing the overall mix before I start any mixing, per se. I absolutely love experimenting with effects and depth and space perception within the mixing stage. Getting creative with this is an undescribable feeling. Of course, each project is unique, so I can't really predict all the steps, even though there is a common path I usually follow.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My setup is simple, For mixing all I need is to be able to listen properly, so acoustics, monitoring and conversion plays a great importance in what I do and that is where I focus my setup around.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I am a mixing engineer and most of my clients are creating within Pop, RnB or electronic music genres.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: It is not uncommon for people to think that mixing is 100% independent of the music itself, when, in reality, I would say it is the opposite. That is why every mix is unique.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I usually work on a range of different styles, but the majority of my projects are in the Pop, R&B and electronic area.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I get most of my inspiration from discovering new sounds. The originality of a production, independently of which professional it comes from.
