I'm a producer, mix engineer, mastering engineer, and recording engineer with past clients such as:
- Republic Records
- Aaron Hagan (Ariana Grande, Selena Gomez, Meghan Trainor)
- Andy Cardenas (Madonna, Boys II Men, Lil Kim)
- Carl Sturken (Rihanna, Kelly Clarkson)
- Jack Payne (over 2 million plays)
I also hold a Master's degree in Music Technology from NYU. I've worked across practically every genre on hip-hop, pop, RnB, jazz, and full orchestras recorded for playback in surround sound and Dolby Atmos.
I'm experienced in Pro Tools, Logic Pro, and Ableton Live. I'm able to provide guidance on how to properly license your songs, protect your copyrights, and ensure that you're collecting the revenue that you're entitled to.
Beneath you'll find some testimonials from past clients.
✓ “The vocal sounds like a much higher price mic was used. It’s kind of amazing how you got this to sound. Right off the bat, it is SOOOOO appealing. You do first-rate work!”
- Aaron Hagan (Ariana Grande, Selena Gomez)
- Audio Mastering:
Using a combination of analog and digital gear, I have a history of success mastering pop, hip-hop, orchestral works, and podcasts. Whether you're looking for a subtle shaping or an aggressive radio-ready record, I have the experience to make your audio shine.
✓ “Best communication I’ve had with an engineer, plus amazing work. This dude really delivers, and is versatile, being able to handle many different genres.”
- Music Production:
As a producer, my skills as a pianist/guitarist, audio engineer, music composer, and artistic director come together so that I can facilitate your art reaching its highest potential both creatively and professionally.
✓ “Micah absolutely blew me away on this project. High levels musicianship, professionalism, industry insight, and technical expertise like this rarely co-exist. Would definitely hire again”
- Music Mixing:
A great mix can make or break a record, no question about it. For me, mixing is about more than "getting a good balance", it's about creating the world the artist envisions.
✓ "Micah, you completely brought this project to life, it's exactly what I imagined. I swear you're equal parts, mind reader and audio engineer."
- Audio Restoration:
I'm highly experienced using spectral editing for the removal of room noise, harsh “s/t/k” sounds, pops, clicks, and even dogs barking in the background. If it can be saved, I can save it.
✓ "I'm so happy we worked together. This performance was a once in a lifetime event, and you breathed a new life into the recording"
- Vocal Tuning and Alignment:
I tune vocals by hand to provide much more transparent results than AutoTune or even Melodyne. I also align vocals to create tight doubles and harmonies, providing a larger sounding, cleaner sound.
The testimonial for this service is from a really talented UK artist and it's probably my favorite review...
✓"No joke, this pitch cleanup is so hard to detect it's scary."
Some of my expertise includes Pro Tools, Logic Pro X, Ableton Live, iZotope RX, Music Composition, Piano, Guitar, Voice.
I provide consultation for artists, labels, managers, recording studios, software companies, and corporate entities with information tailored to their unique needs. This ranges from how to set up their recording environments for optimal sound, data-driven marketing approaches, how to ensure complete collection of royalties, and best practices for mixing/mastering.
