Matthew Tryba on SoundBetter

I've helped create Diamond, Multi-Platinum, and Grammy winning records for OneRepublic, Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, Maroon 5, The Fray. I'm a Pop, Top 40, and Dance-Pop Producer/Songwriter who can make your music sound pro.

I've worked on major label and independent records for the past 10 years. You will receive a professional track and mix for your lead vocal/topline. By starting with the vocal and building the track to suit, everything supports the vocal's dynamics and highlights it as the star of the production. I can also make tracks for you to create your own topline.

I sing and I play: guitar, bass, synths, and drum programming. I'm a ninja in Ableton, Pro Tools, and Logic Pro X. I specialize in making custom tracks that sound unique and never like something off an assembly line. I also excel in vocal production and arranging. As a singer myself, I know what it's like to be in front of the mic and I can help bring out the absolute best in your vocals.

    I really enjoyed working with Matthew! He was always available to answer any questions that I had. He knew the exact sound that he was going for for his Artist's song and was able to communicate that through clear instructions so that I knew exactly how to deliver. It has been a pleasure working with him and I hope to work with him again in the future!

    Matt has been extremely helpful and patient through out the process, it’s the second we worked together and both experiences are just amazing. He’s really professional and was able to meet our needs in ways we asked for. The mixes sounds really awesome and worth every cents. We’d definitely come back in the future to work with him again!

    We used Matthew to help our daughter Maya with her original song by arranging and producing the backing for her. He was awesome to work with and was able to create something they both could connect with. The song sounds amazing. We cannot thank him enough. Would fully recommend working with Matthew.

    Matthew Tryba has been just amazing. I ran across Soundbetter and really did my research on the mixers, engineers, producers and I ended up picking Mr Tryba out of the whole bunch. Man, did I make the right choice. Matthews professionalism, skill set, project management and imagination are second to none. I just couldn't be more happier. Not only do I have a great track now, I have a new friend. I wouldn't even hesitate to work with Matthew Tryba again. No question!!

Interview with Matthew Tryba

  1. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  2. A: Pro Tools 2020, Logic Pro, and Ableton Live 11 Suite, Studio One 5. Vocal Chain: Telefunken AR-51, Neumann TLM 49, Rupert Neve 511 mic pre, Rupert Neve 551 EQ. Plugins: Waves, Soundtoys, Fabfilter, Steven Slate, Plugin Alliance, Melodyne, Softube, and more. Hardware Synths: Roland JU-06. Soft Synths: Omnisphere, Serum, Komplete Ultimate 12 Collectors, Arturia V Collection 7, Avenger, and more. Monitoring: Focal Shape 50s, Genelec 8020a's with 7050b sub, UE Reference Monitors, AKG 702, Beyerdynamic DT770

  3. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  4. A: Zara Larson! She makes incredible pop music that just moves me.

  5. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  6. A: Diplo, Greg Wells, Kygo, Max Martin, Shellback, Ryan Tedder, The Chainsmokers

  7. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  8. A: Analog on the way in if you have it, and then digital all the way to the end. Digital tools are incredible now and it's much more a question of workflow over sonic quality.

  9. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  10. A: Keep writing until you have a song people are really excited about. It's exponentially more effective to produce a song that's already stellar.

  11. Q: How would you describe your style?

  12. A: I love to mess around with vocals so that they sound like synths.

  13. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  14. A: I've been creating music for the last 10 years. In 2012 I started an internship at Patriot Entertainment working for Ryan Tedder and eventually became an assistant engineer and then later an engineer. I spent 4 years there studying hit making.

  15. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  16. A: Pop, Dance-Pop, Future-pop. Electro-pop, Top 40, and EDM

  17. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  18. A: I have a deep seated understanding of how high the bar is for a hit record. I know first hand how much effort went into the handful of records I've worked on that became hits.

  19. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  20. A: I produce complete tracks to vocals for songwriters and artists in Pop, EDM, and Dance-Pop.

  21. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  22. A: Your ears and your taste are the best tools you have. I've worked the last four years in a multimillion dollar facility with the gear of legends but at the end of the day every hit that came out of that studio came down to the song, performance, taste, and ears.

  23. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  24. A: Track and melody

  25. Q: What's your typical work process?

  26. A: I'm very much a melody first producer and then build the track to suit.
