Mikhail Kusch on SoundBetter

Hi, I'm Mikhail Kusch. I am a professional mixing engineer and producer. I create music for various artists, co produce for others and mix records for many more! I'm a super versatile producer and work across multiple styles on a day to day basis. Have a look at my reviews below to see what artists think of working with me!

How it works:

1) First listen to the tracks in my portfolio to get an idea of what I can do :)

2) Message me to get your project started - I enjoy discussing the project before hand (preferably hearing a rough demo or reference track) as it helps me get a better understanding of what your needs are.

3) Once the project is funded, it's over to me. I do everything I feel the record needs to correctly convey your original vibe, emotion and intention behind the song. I'm here to make your idea come to life and create the best sounding version of your song.

4) I'll create a rough draft to send back to you - then based on your feedback I'll get to work on finishing up the production.

5) Once the track is at a place where you feel that the job is done, I'll ask you to mark the job as complete and provide you with a high res wav master and all stems for further mixing or alternative versions.

Thanks for checking out my profile! If you have any questions, please feel free to send me a message - I will reply within the hour.

    Amazing. If I could give him 10 stars I would. For my song, I wanted someone to help me take it to the next level and he blasted it out of the water haha He is very talented, respectful, patient, professional, and took all my notes that I wanted for the song. I am so happy with his work and I definitely recommend!
