Me, François Michaud, I'm a French producer, songwriter, composer, audio engineer, session and live musician (guitar and bass) since 1994.
"when I'm working on an album or a song (recording / mixing), I always try to have the best and the right feelings. For me, it's the most important thing... That's what gives me ideas and thrills !"

I specialize in recording, mixing, mastering and production. I 'm working for 20 years as a sound engineer. I often work for Majors and indie Labels as independent producer.
My biggest asset is that I myself am a musician and I have a large number of sessions as such, to my name . I am well placed to recognize the artistic will and direction of a band, and to get them to where they want to go.
"Great week with Eddie Kramer au studio la Fabrique (France) !!!! If you want a fucking good sound for your drums, recording, mixes, mastering, I will produce it, so come on guys, Rock on !!!!!!"

    We recently had an EP mastered by Francois with Wild Horse Studios. We had a very pleasant experience. He was very easy to work with, and has a rapid turnaround time with a professional, slick product. We were extremely pleased with the final product, and now have saleable songs that sound even better than we had hoped. If you are in a time crunc

    Another excellent job done. The whole E.P will now not only have our imprints but Franc's too. We really enjoyed working with him. I wish him good luck and success with his future projects.

    This was one of the most difficult songs to mix and master and he did so gracefully and was patient in hearing what we had to say on the kind of sound we expected. The track sounds amazing on all devices. The sound is BIG and beautiful. I'm coming back to him again and again! :D

    Fast and professional feedback made the process with François both pleasant and highly efficient and his first version of our song was spot-on.
    So we will definately use him in the future.

    The third song he's mixed and mastered for us has come out even better than the first two that he did. We're like totally in love with this guy! He's a complete genius. The electric guitars he does are to die for. He'd make your song his own with all the love and work that he puts in. Recommended a zillion times!

    François delivered another super mix before the deadline I had. He is a really great engineer who listens to what you are looking for in the song and works until you're happy. Very professional.

    His work is exceptionally good! I've got my first song mixed and mastered from him, and he'll be my only choice for the remaining four as well.

    François is one guy who sticks to his promise. He promised us a good mix and gave us just that. He was always present when we needed to discuss things and was always a good listener unlike most people. I hired a mixing engineer but also found a friend in him. I am going to get him to master the song as well. I totally recommend this guy.

    François Michaud from Wild Horse Studio marvelously found the perfect sound for our music! Although our production has a variety of genders, he just managed to satisfy our needs by highlighting the particular features of every type of song without losing a distinctive mark of the whole production. A great engineer who really knows what he is doing!
