My name is Michael Hynes and I have been in the music industry for thirty years. I became a producer engineer a couple of decades ago after working as a session Bassist. I became dissatisfied with the difference I heard when preforming in the studio and the playback after cutting a song. "How did we lose the energy I just felt" Was the question that drove me to an obsession that continues to this day. I have been on a quest to give recorded music life and transmit the intention of the artist for a long time now. I am intimate with each aspect of making a record from arranging through mixing and have owned several studios. With the democratization of recording technology It is actually more important now than ever to have a experienced ear at the mastering stage.
