Music Producer & Composer:

I specialize in multiple genres of music in the areas of production and composition. Over the last decade and more, I've built my career on my contributions to dance music. Particularly in progressive house and trance. I've been able to also pursue my passion for producing both pop music for the commercial market as well as cinematic music for the screen.

My strengths in productions include (but are not limited to:) arrangement, sound design, mix, vocal production, recording, and mastering. Everything you need from start to finish.

Mixing & Mastering:

As a mix and mastering engineer, I've been able to serve clients of many genres. From dance music to hip hop to acoustic to rock to classical all the way to pop. I do not discriminate musical tastes and work my best to bring my clients' work to the highest level possible and at the specifications they require for distribution. I am also capable of completing both digital and hybrid (analog summing) mixes and masters.

    Made our rock n roll track sound loud, gritty and danceable. Just the way we like it

    Michael has a great ear and the warmth of the analog mix is something to seriously consider for your next project. I certainly will! Very timely and professional - I caught him as he was changing studios and in the midst of the move, but he managed to do a great (and speedy!) job in spite of all the demands on his time. Top notch!

    Another great project with Michael. He is the industry standard in terms of mastering services. His analog gear will get your song to its fullest potential.

    So kind and supportive, and the work definitely speaks for itself! Very happy with how the song was able to be developed via mix/mastering from Michael.

    Working with Michael is great, I've found my Masterer!! I know that's not a word, probably a better term for Michaels skill is Surgeon. He brought life back into old tracks I never thought would see the light of day. I really look forward to working with him more.

    Good working relationship with Michael. If you consider that you can get a good product over the distances between Switzerland and New York without having seen each other, it is amazing. Again any time.

Interview with Michael Badal

  1. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  2. A: It's different strokes for different folks. it's really a matter of taste. I personally love the sound of analog, but it's not always needed or even wanted depending on the project. My studio is capable of analog summing and can provide my clients with a hybrid mix where their songs are mixed in the DAW, but are summed out through my analog gear and brought back in for the final render.

  3. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  4. A: I love bringing my client's project to a close for them. I get to see them finally listen to their project in its finished state after months of them producing and recording their pieces of art. And for them to trust me with the final mix and master of their project is an honor I don't take lightly.

  5. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  6. A: I work on anything from Dance music to Classical to Pop to Rock to Hip Hop and everything in between. I don't discriminate on style and genre. My clients come from all kinds of musical walks and I embrace it as it keeps my job very interesting.

  7. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  8. A: I run Logic Pro X primarily, but also have Pro Tools running in the studio. For mixing and mastering, I have Focal Shape Twin and Avantone Mix Cube monitors, a Dangerous Music 2-BUS+, an array of UAD-2 and Waves plugins, a MOTU 896mk3 interface, and a TC Electronic Clarity M for metering.

  9. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  10. A: For clients, the most common type of work I perform is in the form of mixing, mastering, and remixing. I also produce music for myself and other artists as well.
