My Studio Equipment

I have my own studio, located in my home. Which I rent out for voice over and music projects. Almost all of them I also prodece. I use the Pro Tools system. I also teach Pro Tools. I use an Alesis X2 mixing board and master commercials and music in an Alesis Masterlink. I get a nice rich and warm sound out of my studo, but I also produce all types of music, some of which may need a sharp edgy sound. My main microphone is a an AT4033, which works well with all types of vocals (spoken and sung),from Rap to Jazz, heavy male voices to soft light female voices and everything in between. I use a Yamaha EMP100 unit for effects (most of the times in tandem with a long list of Pro Tools plug-ins).

Additional Skills

I write, record and produce music out of my studio. I play guitar and harmonica and the founder and leader of the band "Mike Mann & Cowboy Soul". Please check the band out at myspace. I also offer music services from writing and performing jingles, to movie music supervisor and film soundtracks. I have a wide variety of musicians, singers voice over artists and writers on hand. If you need someone to voice cast ing your next commercial, please let me know.
