Mikhail Kusch on SoundBetter

Hi, I'm Mikhail Kusch. I'm a professional mixing engineer and producer. I create music for various artists, co produce for others and mix records for many more! As a super versatile producer, I 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.

    Mikhail made a couple of edits on my raw track and he did a fantastic job. His mastering resulted in a 0% increase of volume on streaming platforms (0% reduction of quality). This shows that he's very attentive to details. Sounds exactly how I wanted -- very clean and thorough. Def recommend him to any other songwriters out there :p

  16. Review by Julius H.

    This was an extension gig for Mikhail's beat he produced and arranged for my song. The mix came out crisp and balanced, I requested a few fine-tunings and it all went really well, and I'm happy about the outcome.

  17. Review by sfe tav

    super understanding, awesome engineer

  18. Review by Tess Wilensky

    Mikhail is AMAZING! He was so thoughtful and SO quick to provide feedback and tracks to me! He was also so patient and understanding when our project took longer than anticipated due to me getting sick.

    So thankful for the ease of communication and the incredible quality of his work! Thanks Mikhail- I'll absolutely be in touch for my next project!

  19. Review by Timothy S.

    Great collaboration and speed of communication. Quality of music is outstanding. Everything I need!

  20. Review by Julius H.

    I wanted to get out of my comfort zone and try something new, and I was looking for an arrangement that would break things in a good way. Mikhail delivered 100%; his musicality and dynamic approach were what the record needed. The arrangement and beat are full of details that make the song rich.
    I'm looking forward to the next opportunity to work with him.
