Having worked along side Michael Worthington for twenty years I consider myself to be an expert on what makes him so Soundworthy.
We have worked together on numerous projects, mixing, sound design and recording, in all audio mediums, film, television and recording music artists.
I have witnessed first hand Michael meet countless deadlines, whilst remaining calm and most important always maintaining his excellent creative focus and overview.
Michael has worked hard and made his love his life. The superb studio he has built is a testament to that, perfect for maintaining his high output and quality with an easy atmosphere and superb caffeine.

I highly recommend Michael , the work he did on my fourth album " Sand " album was fantastic ... it was great to meet such professional, efficient and friendly audio engineer and I will not hesitate to have his input into my next project. Paul Serret

I mastered my first album with Michael, and then went on to both mix and master my second album with him.
Working with Michael has so far been a total joy for me – he has an ability to combine a huge amount of professionalism with being able to have some laughs and keep things fun while we are working.
Along the way I always felt like my mixes were in good hands with him, it helped me to relax knowing how thorough he is in every aspect of the process.
He is also great at being positive and encouraging while also letting me know when something isn’t quite working as well as it could.
I enjoyed the journey with Michael hugely and would highly recommend working with him.
