    Michael was awesome. He's very knowledgeable about not only engineering, but also music and composition as well and provided notes and suggestions that lead to the song sounding better. He's a really great guy and was a pleasure to work with. He didn't waste any time, and moved through the project very fluidly. Will definitely be be booking time with him again soon. He's the man.

    Mike does a fantastic job, soup to nuts, on lots of tracks for me. They vary in style, tempo and feel, but he has an ability to quickly identify the vibe I am going for, and then apply his own creative touch to the track. He is terrific at helping with composition, sound design, vocal edits/writing. He applied all of these skills to this track. Great work - recommend!

    This was my second project with Michael. He mixed a song he produced for me earlier in the year. He made the beat sound even sicker. I gave him some references and initial notes at the start. First draft back was great. Revisions and tweaks were made super quick and exactly how I envisioned them. Like the last time we worked together, Michael was patient and a great communicator. Excellent producer and mix engineer.

    Working with Michael has been one of the greatest experiences in my life. The way he developed the project was professional, clean and fun. In addition, it makes you feel in an atmosphere of confidence and relaxation. The connection I had with him when designing and putting together ideas about music and lyrics was natural. Definitely any expectation that I got to have, he surpassed them by a lot.

    Working with Michael Banks has been one of the most natural collaborative experiences I have had as a singer / songwriter. In addition to being a skilled and eclectic sound designer, Michael has very sharp songwriting and conceptual instincts. Without a doubt, I have made the best music with him in my time as a musician.

    Mike is a very talented and edgy producer always open to the artist's suggestions and help them to get the sounds they really want or give them something better instead.
    Capable of turning ideas into music real quick, his final works are always in high quality and his fun to work with.
    Definitely recommended.

    Mike worked with my music startup, Motion Traxx, for 5+ years. Mike is a talented producer who works quickly, understands tasks accurately, and anticipates what has to be done next. Mike quickly learned our methodology for creating soundtracks, and the tools we used. He delivered high quality work with short lead times. Highly recommend him.
