Michael Caiati: Engineer / Producer

Analog guy in a digital world.

I am still a true believer that there is no amount of technology that can substitute for the magic that happens when musicians play together, in the same room, at the same time. I offer a warm sound to any project, analog or digital.

As owner and head engineer for 25 years at Coyote Recording Studios in Williamsburg Brooklyn, I developed a vast engineering and producing career working with many notable and independent artists with a diverse set of sounds, from Rockabilly to Jazz to Ska and Punk. These artists included Dion DiMucci, Mary Weiss, The Ramones, They Might Be Giants. The Slackers, The Dictators, Nada Surf, and many other musical luminaries. At Coyote, I was part of a team who engineered for They Might Be Giants, which won a Grammy award for music in Fox’s hit television show Malcolm in the Middle. Click Here For Full Bio
