Matt Sephton

I have been recording, producing and mixing music for over 10 years.  I’ve had the pleasure of working on a wide range of styles, and with some truly wonderful musicians.
My goal is to bring the artist’s music to a professional standard. The key areas of expertise that I take pride in are firstly capturing clear and rich sounds, with maximum acoustic and musical energy.
Capturing the most charged and energetic performance is key, and if it’s for post production then clarity and integrity are most important. And then secondly, focusing in and fine tuning the recording, to enliven and add movement to music and highlight rich sonic textures through precise editing, and with considered use of E.Q, compression and other effects.

Recording

Recording your own songs can seem like a daunting experience.  But it can also be an immensly satisfying and deeply creative experience. I operate a simple studio, using quality equipment but without being overwhelming. I enjoy creating a relaxed and clear headed recording and mixing environment, where together we can focus just on the music, to produce a product that you can be proud of.


  • “Matt brought his skill, expertise, and enthusiasm – not to mention a bunch of top notch recording gear – to Huapai District School last November to work with our band District Riot. Matt was the perfect engineer for our students to work with.

    He put them at ease with his relaxed, easy going approach, whilst working with them to bring out their best performance. Our music room was temporarily transformed into a recording studio, and Matt worked expertly with our environment and instruments to get the best possible sound.

    He also put in hours of post-production, creating a top quality product that blew us all away! Thanks to Matt we have a lasting document of our student’s achievements that they and their families treasure, and that our school community can share with pride.”

Get started!

Online mixing is a cost-effective and accessible way to bring your music to a professional standard.  I bring fresh ears, expert knowledge and objectivity to your project.

> Firstly we discuss your project, and what sort of sound you are going for. I like to get an idea of your desired aesthetic before beginning.
> You then send through multitrack files via Dropbox, wetransfer or similar. And if you have one, a rough mix of the song.
> I’ll spend up to two hours shaping a preliminary mix. (If the song is particularly complex and needs more time i will tell you before continuing)
>  I’ll e-mail you a first mix for your thoughts. You can get others to listen; friends, the rest of the band, your mum etc.
> We then go through up to 4 revisions, and I’ll keep mixing until you are satisfied*
> Once you are satisfied, and payment has been made, I will deliver a final Pre-Master (24 bit 48khz) which is ready for mastering.

*I’ll spend up to a total of 4 hours on a mix. If your project is very complex, or if you make changes to the composition after the first mix, more time may be needed. This will be charged at $35 per hour.

Live Sound and Events
