Wild Horse Studio / François Michaud on SoundBetter

François Michaud is a French producer, songwriter, composer, audio engineer, session and live musician (guitar and bass) since 1990. "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 !"

He specializes in recording, mixing, mastering and production (Rock / Indie Rock / Folk / Singer Song writer). He's working for 25 years as a sound engineer. He often works for Majors and indie Labels as independent producer. He collaborates with more than 300 artists from around the world (France - USA - England - Australia - Brazil - Chile - Colombia - Germany - Greece - India - Norway - Russia - Ireland...).

Tchad Blake about one of his session : " It was really well produced and recorded " !

His 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 !!!!!!"

    Despite my album being recorded using a USB mic in a bare stone living room on a laptop, somehow François made it sound rich and full, as if it had been produced in Abbey Road. Thanks again François for your ideas, enthusiasm and a great sounding album, I hope you are as pleased with the final result as I am. Paul.

    I worked with Wild for the first time, just wanted to get a new connection and a new pair of ears for mastering.
    He did a job that I'm really satisfied with. He did what I expected he would do. LIfted the songs a couple of levels more!

    François works fast and focused, has great ears, and can dial in sounds quickly. He was always friendly and easy to work with.

    His studio is ideal, and is on a hillside overlooking a river valley. The live/control rooms have everything you need for a great recording, not to mention incredible views. The upstairs lounge has a rustic, cabin vibe perfect for spacing out between sessions.

    Super-sweet spot for mixing or recording. I highly recommend.

    François is a joy to work with; he is diligent, affable, and he captured the sound I was after completely. The final mastered version of "Sophia" sounds as good, and in some cases better, than any of the tunes I gave him for reference. I can't wait to hear what he does with the rest of the album.

    François did a wonderful job mastering the songs he mixed for me. I was a little concerned with having the same person master who mixed, but the songs turned out great. Will be using Wild Horse Studio again.

    Mixing and mastering Hiphop Reggae require the compentence of great minds with great taste of sounds. Wild is the man. He brought spices into this track i never knew existed. This have earn him 3 more tracks from me to be mixed and master. He is also patience ready to experiment what i wanted. Thanks man.

    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

    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

    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 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!
