ADR by Matt Pakucko

Why work with Matt Pakucko?


Hiring a pro will greatly increase your impact whenever your music is heard.  Too many people go the DIY, low budget route and expect to be heard above the din of tens of 1000s of artists that do that.  The artists that never get farther than some internet streams and a few downloads or CDs sold.  If you're are serious, hire a pro.  They invented music producers for a reason.  IF you even get that one-time chance to be heard by a crucial industry connection, don’t blow it by playing them your low-budget demo unless it’s a clear “killer” production.  They may never listen to you again. 

For over 25 years he has been an independent Music Producer and Sound Engineer music mixer, recording and audio engineer, songwriter and musician,  and the force behind Mix City Music Recording Studios, a privately owned boutique music recording studio.,  and the nexus for any other studio you may need.
