Studio Owner/Music Production Engineer

My name is Mitch Houston. I have been in the music industry for over 15 years. As a musician I have traveled the world and played in front of thousands of people. As a song writer I have written and produced hundreds of tracks and released multiple albums. And as an audio engineer I have worked on projects that have circumnavigated the globe, as well as small local singer songwriter ep’s. I have worked on million dollar recording consoles all the way down to two input audio interfaces and everything in between. I currently own and operate a broadcast studio and a production studio in the states. We are producing and releasing MULTIPLE HOURS of audio each week. I love to chat with people who have a heart to learn about the science of audio and would LOVE to chat with you!

I graduated from the Conservatory for Recording Arts and Sciences in 2014, and have owned and operated my own studios ever since. I am Professionally Certified Audio Engineer, and as stated above, I have worked on worldwide projects all the way down to young kids who are recording their first songs. I also have been certified in Smaart Audio Analysis software, as well as Pro Tools Certified. I was the head Audio Engineer at PDC Productions in Oklahoma, and the audio that I created was played all over the world in major conferences and events. I have made a very good living in the Music Industry.
