Quality work from a professional. 10/10 recommend.
Michael is one of the best engineers i've ever worked with. Super professional, applies feedback perfectly, and it only takes a couple of revisions before it's done. He's also generally just a really nice guy. I love working with him and plan to send most of my artists to him going forward.

Michael is absolutely amazing! I work with a lot of engineers and he is top notch. He sent me a rough draft, I sent him my notes and it literally took one small tweak after that and we were done.

Working with Michael was amazing! I have worked with a few producers recently, and he is by far the best one I have come across. His sound is so fresh! We are working on a new project right now!
AWESOME! This is my second time with Michael and he has nailed it again! Great job!! Next one is coming!!
It was great working with Michael. Quickly he got what I wanted to communicate with the song and he is very good at creating awesome arrangements/tracks. I am very impressed by what he can do. It’s in the details and transitions. And he edited the tracks until I was happy. Very nice guy!
The only thing was the attention to detail that was missing a bit when it came to the edit of the vocal. It took a lot of listing and highlighting from my side. But everything worked out nicely in the end.
I’ve used Soundbetter a few different times and I think of the jobs I’ve had, Michaels delivered the product closest to my envisioned sound ! He was good on delivering on time, and the track sounds excellent! Definite recommend!
Michael is not only a talented producer/mixer, but also a very awesome person. He keeps the process very fun, very pleasant, and more importantly, keeps it stress free experience. I've worked with several producers now and he's constantly been so positive and helpful. Super proud of these 2 songs he's produced!
Brilliant final product. Great service and amazing patience!
It was a pleasure to collaborate with MK as he showed great patience and solid skills in producing my most recent song. Highly recommend !!
RECOMMENDED!! Michael has nailed it and turned my demo into a professional Spotify-ready production! He is very communicative, reliable and goes the extra mile to get the job done perfectly! Thanks a lot!
Another great song from Michael! This is my second time getting the chance to work with Michael and he is wonderful to work with! He knows exactly the tone and vibe of the song that I’m going for and I’m never disappointed with the results. He’s also really fast with getting the song done and won’t stop until I’m satisfied. Will definitely be working with him a lot more!
Very talented, communicative, and patient! would definitely recommend him.
Really enjoyed working with Michael again! Had a full prod last time and something simple mixed this time, so he can def get the job done whatever you're thinking of. Again, super good with incorporating what you want it to sound like! Thanks Michael :)
Michael will add original creativity to your songs! He's got all the skills and the ear to create catchy music. He also works very fast which makes this process more exciting! I was super impressed with his constant creativity and output. Thank you Michael!
I'm so happy with the final product Michael gave me! He is a complete professional and was patient and giving throughout the entire process. It was easy to get in touch with him and I always felt comfortable talking to him about any changes or notes. Can't wait to release the song! Thank you to Michael for making it sound mint.
Michael was awesome to work with. Creative on his own and super receptive to your personal preferences and feedback as well. We created a cool track. Thanks Michael!
Michael is the best hidden gem I've ever found! His professionalism and quality of production beyond exceeded my expectations. He is super easy going and very receptive of any suggestions or changes I wanted to make. I wanted to find the right direction to go with my music and his knowledge and creative ability helped me find exactly what I was looking for. There is not enough stars to rate him! Extremely happy I found him and so grateful for the 3 tracks we have worked on so far.
Michael was so great to work with! I gave him a demo and explained how I wanted the song to be like and fortunately he completely understood the vibe I was trying to go for. Also he works really fast and his quality in production is amazing to say the least! I will definitely be working with him again!
Michael is very talented!!!! Michael was excellent to work with because I had a deadline & he communicated with me & worked hard with me to meet the deadline while keeping the quality high. Michael is truly all things talented & professional! What an expert!
Definitely one of the best producers on here. I would highly recommend him.

Michael was very hardworking and willing to work with me to bring my songs to love! He accepted and applied my feedback. Very kind and I enjoyed working with him again.
This is the second track I've worked on with Michael - he's really talented. Has a good ear for what I was trying to do and brought it to life perfectly. Strongly recommend and look forward to getting to work together again in the future!
Michael did a wonderful job. He worked on my project it was his own. Now my song sounds fantastic. Thank you so much.
Michael was very understanding and patient in the process, he gave my vocals a professional sound and his ideas of what instruments to add was excellent.
I finished another song with Michael and I am always impressed with his pop instinct with songs..looking forward to more. Recommended
second job w/ michael and excited to work on more!
Michael was great! He gave my song a fullness I wasn't able to achieve on my own. Super quick mix and master turnaround and was always ready to respond to any messages/questions I sent his way. Looking forward to working with him again soon!
Really nice person to message with! Really quick and efficient! I'd love to work with him again in the future with mixing and more mastering!
I recently finished another song with Michael and I was delighted with the way he developed the song.He sure got that 'Meaty Beaty Big and Bouncy' drum sound that I wanted. Mix was difficult too due to many vocal stems but this is one of his fortes and he did a great job .Book him before the Stars do
Michael recently remixed and revisited a Xmas song i had done and gave it a nice modern feel and better mix.I recommend him for a variety of jobs
Very fast and professional. Mixes sounded awesome!
Michael was excellent to work with. He was quick and did a particularly great job in bringing a professional finish to my song by making it fuller with sounds that complemented what was already there. I'd definitely recommend and work with him again!
I also came across Michael out of the blue recently but what a talented Producer I discovered.I see people outlining what a terrific Mix Engineer he is and I can't argue but for me its his sense of Modern pop that stands out and his ability to optimise a song and being in tune with writer.I totally recommend him to work with
Micheal is the best I ever had, and that's not a cliche.
I met him by mistake really, I was skeptic about him because the little review rate and all, but ones I gave him a go he surprised me, like a magician really
one of the best mixing engineers I have work with on EDM music
Very understanding and professional sounding
Michael is a very talented modern producer..i gave him a guitar track that he transformed into EDM pop tune. i highly recommend using him…i have given him another track to work on already...Michael is a fantastic producer with a great ear
Michael Khan has an excellent production ear! He gets right away what you're wanting to make happen in your song and embellishes upon that with flair and authenticity. Each song he produces for us is so sonically clean and top notch, people at libraries have asked me about it. If I could give more than 5 stars I would! We're definitely going to keep coming back to Michael, because we trust we'll always get a great final product. Plus, he really works with you until you're super happy with the final cut. Thanks again Michael, we just love our new song!
LOVED working with Michael Khan! He is professional, outgoing and incredibly creative! He has a great knack for developing melody and lyric ideas. I highly recommend Michael and hope to collaborate with him again!
I must say that Michael did a great job on my son's song to make it sound CURRENT! We found Michael easy to work with and he was very accommodating when we had suggestions. I would emphasize that it was Michael's creativity/artistry that elevated a beautiful piano/vocal song to a "radio ready" pop song that's a real winner! We would definitely work with Michael again, and that's going to happen repeatedly! I recommend Michael as a producer to anyone who wants to get his/her music out there for the masses, hands down!
Michael is an amazing producer/mixer! I've worked with him on a couple of my latest releases and I'm super impressed with his work! Not only is he great at what he does but he's really easy to work with and is very passionate about the music. He knows how to get the sound you want and knows what's needed to make it sound like a hit!
Michael is truly very talented, he knew exactly the sound I was looking for and made it happen in no time! I'm looking forward to doing more songs, I'm definitely in great hands :)
