Michael Matthews on SoundBetter

I am a 25+ year guitarist, audio engineer and owner of MashingAudio Productions. I have worked and trained with amazing engineers and musicians starting in '93. I am a fanatical chaser of rich, heavy distortion along w/pristine clean tones. With a niche in mixing and mastering Heavy Rock/Metal I welcome all genres of music into my studio!

My love for audio began in the early 90's recording my teenage grunge band with my Fostex 4 track tape console. This led me into radio and voiceover work while simultaneously introducing me to professional audio production, live sound and engineering. I mainly worked in voiceover, corporate and small music productions through the beginning years but my true passion has always been professional mixing and mastering of music. It's my true comfort zone in life.

I have produced audio projects for globally known companies' such as McDonald's and Subway, and even work with medical professionals to better hear the sounds of the heart, lungs and other internal organs for training purposes and supporting diagnosis/treatment.

I take this profession very seriously and will stop at nothing to listen to your needs and produce exceptionally professional results. I have the utmost passion and creativeness for mixing, mastering, and music production! I can provide professional session guitar and bass work as well to fit perfectly within your project’s flow and style!

I sincerely look forward to helping you accomplish your project goals!
Feel free to contact me anytime with no obligations.

    I've done multiple YouTube collaborations with Mike and he is just a phenomenal player and person to work with. Mike does all the heavy lifting needed when it comes to mixing/mastering AND jamming! Very professional, knows his craft in and out, and is just one cool dude. Hit him up!

    I've worked with Michael for both music and voice over projects for a number of years! His passion for his craft is unmatched. He has great attention to detail and is easy to work with. He's certainly one of my go-to guys when I need a project done right and on time!

    Michael is a BEAST! I’d gone to another producer for recording and production, and just wasn’t happy with the mix I’d gotten back. A friend of mine that has worked with Michael before referred him to me. I showed him the mess that I’d been given, got a copy of the stems and sent them over to him. The results were night and day. Micheal nailed it exactly the way I had envisioned it. If you want clarity and punch, and you want to work with someone who will put in the effort to understand the sound you’re looking for, stop looking. You’ve found him.
