Maximilian Walch is a music producer, sound engineer and multi-instrumentalist based in Vienna, Austria. His keen ear for arrangement details has made Max a go-to producer for recording artists with all kinds of musical backgrounds. Among musicians, he is known and respected for bringing an open-minded curiosity to every new project – putting in his soul and heart to add something of value.
Born in Linz, Upper Austria and trained in music from an early age, Maximilian has various instrumental and vocal skills at his disposal – piano, violin, and drums as well as years of vocal training and experience singing in ensembles himself.

Trusted by both major and indie labels, he’s been involved in a wide range of projects ranging from commercial productions to rather underground and experimental creative endeavors.
