Griffo has been working in analog studios and mixing booths since the age of 5 and has been mixing tracks for artists since 2008 "in the box". "Mixing In The Box" refers to mixing a song completely within one software program.

Using Universal Audio's Apollo Audio Interface in conjunction with his deep knowledge of analog equipment, the results make for faster work flow and amazing sounds.

Unison Technology: The Genuine Sound of Neve, API & Manley Preamps

You'll have access to eight Unison-enabled mic preamps, letting you track large projects through exacting mic preamp emulations from Neve, API, Manley, Helios, SSL, and Universal Audio. A Universal Audio exclusive, Unison technology nails the tone of these sought-after tube and solid state mic pres — including their input impedance, gain stage “sweet spots,” and the component-level circuit behaviors of the original hardware.

The secret to Unison is its hardware-software integration between Apollo’s mic preamps and its onboard HEXA Core DSP Acceleration. Simply place a Unison preamp plug-in on your mic input in Apollo Console software, and it physically reconfigures the Apollo interface's impedance — so you can tap into the classic sounds of the world’s most recorded mic preamps.

Matt is a brilliant producer and engineer of both audio and video, and a pleasure to work with. I have been working regularly with him for several years, and I hope to continue that collaboration far into the future. In addition to his vast technical knowledge, he is a brilliant musician and multi-instrumentalist, and he brings THAT expertise into his studio work as well. He has made particular musical suggestions to me that I've incorporated into my recordings. He is also a life-long learner. I have seen him purchase particular apps, patches, etc., and figure out how to use them on the spot, just because he thought they would make our tracks better. I recommend Matt 100%.

Matt was an incredible resource for recording our album. His technical finesse and musical acumen brought things to our recording that we didn't even consider. He really knows his stuff, and he made the entire process much less stressful. We were very happy with the final product, and have every intention of working with Matt again.

As a choreographer who works in nontraditional spaces, I have a specific set of needs from a composer. Matt was able to intuitively respond to the dance materialcreating a complex and beautiful score. Not only did he expertly develop the compositionhe also recorded the parts for both piano and cello and provided digital files that I could use in a variety of settings. I still get compliments on the music and recording quality!

- Rachel Damon, Creative Director of Synapse Arts

Matt recorded two of my original songs and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. He was insanely helpful, knowledgeable, professional and at the same time just the right amount of laid back and flexible. The songs ended up sounding exactly how I had heard them in my head; Matt was able to translate what I was thinking into high quality amazing sounding tracks. He even jumped in & improvised on piano with no rehearsal on one song after I was like, man, I would love to have piano on this song! He’s truly incredible and I will definitely be recording with him again.

Matt Griffo is a silly genius. He not only a trained musician who practices regularly, he is tech savvy, staying up on the latest recording and producing tools, and totally nerds out about them. He knows sound, he knows production, he knows musicality and style, and he will deliver a result quickly. His time is valuable. My recommendation is come in knowing what you want as much as possible. If you are unclear and want to experiment, you may want to do so outside of the production time to make your time the most valuable. While Matt is open to experimentation, he does extremely well with clear direction. Know your stuff before coming in if possible!
