Matt is everything you could ask for in an engineer! He has great ears as he is a musician himself. He is extremely professional and easy to work with. His musical/engineering knowledge spans across multiple genres. He is great at taking direction and/or contributing his input when necessary. He also has a great selection of Kung Fu movies.
Matt is my go-to man in Austin for engineering, producing, mixing, or any other wizardry. He works fast, but is highly precise and gets it done right. His ears are super sharp, and has killer instincts. He is always willing to experiment and push the limit, and he will bring enthusiasm and positivity to your project. Total pro!
Matt is a very capable engineer for both recording and mixing. He's knowledgeable about all the tools and processes involved and has a very musical ear. He can quickly identify issues and gets big-picture musicality in a way that has add tremendous value to every project I've had him work on. And he's a great guy to work with.
Working with Matt was a great experience. He really listened to what we wanted and also had some great suggestions that really added to the music. We threw a lot of unconventional ideas at him and he was always able to come up with a way to make it work on the fly. The EP we recorded with Matt far exceeded my expectations.
Matt worked quickly and efficiently and made us sound incredible. We had a very intense schedule with recording all rhythm, lead vocals and percussion for 13 tracks in 3 days. Even with that pace, he engineered artfully, as he does with mixing, and gave every song his full attention. He cares about your satisfaction with his work.
When working with Matt you should expect professional quality work. His work is consistent, detailed and mind blowing all at the same time. His response time for mix and masters are short and you could expect to receive a great quality job. I refer Matt to anyone I know.
