Hi I’m Michael,
a recording artist and mixing engineer with a passion for teaching (and instant ramen).

In 2015 I discovered my enthusiasm for music and audio; I learned how to record and produce songs in my university student room with a just cheap laptop and FL Studio. After several months of working in audio sessions between school assignments, I decided to leave uni with a 2-year engineering diploma to pursue a career in music. I wanted to learn everything I could about the industry and the artistic process, so I started making original music as half of the duo "Miavono".

In late 2016 I began my journey on YouTube, sharing my knowledge and experiences with audio in the form of tutorials on "In The Mix". I quickly grew a community of over 120,000 producers, artists, and audio professionals, a group of people whose passions aligned with mine. Last year I built my own home studio from the ground up in my back garden, set in the rural highlands of Scotland, and have since been supported by and involved with some of the greatest people in the industry.

In The Mix
is all about simplifying the recording, production, mixing and mastering process and helping you unlock your creativity. No matter which DAW you use or what equipment you have, I'm determined to help you succeed.

I try to share as much as I can about the industry, giving an insight into the world of music production and the business behind it by showing you how to release and sell your music online. I create 2 videos per week and do regular livestreams.

As an FL Studio Power User I also focus tutorials on getting the most out of FL Studio, my DAW of choice.
