I highly recommend 5ix!
Amazing mixing and mastering engineer!
And great personality!
Amir was very professional. Listened to my ideas and produced a quality piece of mixing and mastering. He was timely and willing to provide iterations on the mixing. THANKS!!
Awesome! Dedicated to giving me as a customer a product I can be happy with, which is the most important.
Amir was great to work with. He gave the song the energy it needed with his mixing. I gave detailed instructions on how I wanted it to sound and he nailed it.
He exceeded my expectations and provided me with a great mix for a very good price.
Awesome guy that delivers awesome work every time! Enjoy working with Amir.
Great ear. Great work. Great attitude. Awesome guy. Does what he say he will do in the time he commits to. Dude has some heat and heavy range to mix any genre. Don't put this guy in a box. He can sonically bring any genre song to where it needs to be.
Amir was great to work with, understood all the changes and requirements suggested throughout the job, no time constraints and very patient to work with.
AMAZING experience. I left with a beyond professional quality sounding song. He was really patient with me & my requests, and did way more for me than he had to!
I would definitely recommend Amir Swain to anyone looking for a professional sound.

He does superior work! And fast turnaround.
This man has a true ear for music. Working with him has been one of the most humbling experiences I've had while making music. If you want your sound to be mastered and to be at a professional caliber, Amir is your guy. He is efficient, from a financial and music making perspective, and his experience in the industry is a huge upside. Choose him!
We met Amir at a Recording Academy Event, where we had a chance to link up and work on a project. Amir gaves us comfort because he cared about the project and did what needed to be done for it to be right
Working with Amir is always a pleasure. He is professional and most of all a great listener. We have work on quite a few projects together and it's a always magic. He's amazing
Amir is one of the best engineers I've ever worked with. He is not only an engineer, he is a producer, a vocal producer, and much more. Every project I've done with him has turned out incredibly.... he is quick, efficient, and great with communication.
