Mateus Borges on SoundBetter

Latin Grammy nominee producer coming from Porto Alegre, Brazil. Studied with multi Grammy winning mixer Chris Lord-Alge at the Mix with the Masters. Mixing engineer of award winning albums in Brazil and lifelong drummer and percussionist.

I'm a musical producer, recording, mixing engineer and owner of a studio called audioFARM Recording Studios. I'm that kind of guy that likes being involved since the birth of a song to the release of it and that's why I take the approach of getting the band into the studio and leaving only when the job is done, full focus, full immersion. I've been a musician my whole life and I like to think like one. My studio is located in a ranch in the country side of Porto Alegre, 25km away from the city noise and other distractions, there I can work the way I love to, without having the need to ever watch the clock. The audioFARM is also a residential studio so musicians coming from anywhere in the world, will have a place to crash just a few yards away from the studio amidst the nature.

    Mateus!! É o meu braço direito em todos os trabalhos de produção que já fiz. Não abro mão de gravar com ele. Profissional de extremo conhecimento técnico, mas o principal é sua incansável busca pela perfeição e paciência nessa busca.

    Mateus Borges is a brilliant professional. In the production process, he comes up with a lot of great ideas for the tracks' arrangements. His studio has pretty good equipments, but more important than that, with his vast knowledge of musical production and sound engineering, Mateus makes tracks sound great. We from Ladros recommend him.

    Great guy, tremendous professional!!!! All of his work is done with such an accuracy, from the tuning of a single drumhead, all the way to pulling out frequencies of a final master!!!! I had a really great time working on a few projects with him, and can strongly recommend all of his recording skills!!!!...

    O Mateus Borges é um maluco! No melhor sentido da palavra! A maneira com que ele absorve, processa e põe em prática as informações que adquire, são difíceis de ser entendidas pelo ser humano normal! Quando me encontro com o Mateus é sempre uma aula, uma troca de experiências, realizações, músicas, filosofia e muita risada. Sou fã! - Ray-Z

    Gravar com o Mateus foi algo extremamente tranquilo. Ele nos abriu um leque de possibilidades de escolhas de timbres e também tempo para acertarmos juntos os arranjos. O alto padrão de qualidade alcançado com ele ajudou a abrir diversas portas para a Skabout. Recomendamos muito!!

    I work with Mateus since 2009. He is such a great professional and has a large expertise in mixing and mastering process. It's awesome to work with him because of his growth mindset and focus on make the band sounds like a live performance. Overvolt tracks are just great, we are very excited about it.

    This is one of the best professionals that I've ever work. On recording he is proactive and competent, full of great ideas to make your music better and take you to another level. We've had a live experience also, and one especially difficult, because it was on a musical play on an alternative space and he did magic to make the sound work just fine

  • Latin Grammy nomination.Aug 04, 2014

    Wow, just found out that an album I produced, recorded, mixed and mastered back in 2013 was one of the five albums nominated for the Latin Grammy "Best Brazillian Roots Album". The "Os Serranos Interpretam Sucessos Gaúchos Volume 3" from the legendary southern brazillian band "Os Serranos" was one of the most exciting productions I've been into and I'm really proud and honored of this!
