Matt Hyde is an American producer, engineer, mixer and musician. From 1982–1985 he attended Berklee College of Music in Boston. While still at Berklee (1984) he started to get experience in Pyramid recording studio in Boston. After graduating he toured with several different bands, playing guitar and keyboards. When he'd had enough of life on the road[citation needed], Hyde began working at recording studios, first in Boston and from 1989 in Los Angeles. But he played guitar and keyboard off and on after this time also.

He was a programmer and engineer on several projects including some songs on No Doubt's Tragic Kingdom. He also produced small rock and hip-hop projects on his own, including demos for a then-unknown Cypress Hill.

He met Perry Farrell from Porno for Pyros and was a time both producer and member of the band. After some time he realized that he was more at home in the studio than on the stage.[citation needed] He then resumed his production career.
