    I am very demanding of myself, I like a very well done, it takes a lot of discipline against me but also against people with whom I work.
    Working with Mike was a great experience. One of the things that I enjoyed a lot with Mike outside his great mix qualities is that it can always express his opinions with respect. For sure I will be back.

    I've worked with a bunch of different engineers before I finally met Mike and he's the first to deliver a high quality product of this caliber. Best engineer around in my opinion and an awesome guy overall with infectious enthusiasm.

    My advice is to stop looking and just contact Mike, you won't find much better than him.

    A real genius at what he does!!

Definitely working on more projects with him.

    Mike is great audio engineer and a great guy to boot. He offered me very reasonable studio time to record the vocal track for my song and helped me get the best out of my vocal performance. Through his mixing he added another dimension to my song. He is very perceptive to the artist's vision for the song. I will definitely use him again!

  • Default-avatarover 2 years agoby

    INCREDIBLE. I've worked with a few engineers and requested samples from many. Mike's was the best from the start, but nothing special. However he worked with me, did countless revisions, and have me the best sounding project I've ever heard. He is literally a wizard, and will TRANSFORM your career. http://youtu.be/n3X-ZpaHx2A - my single he mixed
