Working with Callum has been a pleasure, a real professional with a sensible ear for what the song needs. He nailed the mix at the first try and I just asked a pair of revisions to have some choice in the vocals level. He worked quickly and I was able to have the final version of the mix within a week. I will definitely work with him again.
Definitely going to work with again
Really talented and easy to work with! Thanks again
speedy and know your music.
good music tastes
It's rare to find an engineer who is both thorough and extremely good at what they do, Cal has both of those qualities. He did a fantastic job with the mix on my song, the sound is crisp and full of emotion- my highest compliments I highly recommend him.
Great work again from Callum. My go-to producer for now and for the foreseeable. Quite a lot of nit-picking this time my end and he was infinitely patient. He also chipped in a few times with great advice on how to enhance the sonic shape of the track. Levels up my music each n every time.
Working with Callum was such a great experience. He had us a mix within one day and was super easy to work with. He’s an all around really good dude and really cares about his craft. Thanks Cal!
Cal is a brilliant mixing engineer. Always manages to take my sounds up a level. Happy as always with my end product.
Callum is my go-to producer. With my newest track I had a lot of revisions to work with and he was a consummate pro at delivering changes. He’s done what I wanted, and some!
Another awesome mix by Callum. He's quickly becoming my go-to mixing engineer for everything I do.
Callum is first rate. I came to him with a strong track in need of a good mix and he has worked wonders on it. We were on the same wavelength from the get-go. He totally understood what my track needed and knew how to make it happen. He was also accommodating with feedback and very patient in the run-up to agreeing the proposal with any questions I fired his way. I will be using him for future mixes.
Working with Cal has been one of the best creative experiences. His mixes are insanely good, communication is a breeze, and he puts a lot of soul into his work. Couldn’t be happier with the results.
Dedication to the craft, musicianship, experience, and collaboration and listening skills is what Cal brings to his mixing projects. He'll tune right into your project and bring the results!
I've been playing and recording music for more than 15 years and Callum was by far my best mixing experience. Cal works with and for the music. He's acurate and really talented, and understand very quickly what type of sound you're after. His sound is classy, timeless, clear, and just as gritty as it needs to be. Last but not least, Cal is one of the nicest human being I had the chance to work with. I'm already looking forward to work with him again. Cal is a guy you definitely can trust, and this is one of the biggest qualities when it comes to mixing, in my opinion.
Cal is the BEST!! He truly listens to what the client wants and he truly cares. He also has an amazing ear, is quick and a delight to work with. He is the best mixer I have worked with so far and I can't wait to work with him again. He is an incredible human being as well and a wonderful hang in the studio. I highly recommend Cal!!
Callum took my EP to the next level! He is very communicative, very professional, and very punctual. He made the whole mixing process a breeze and was open to what little notes I had. He pretty much nailed the mix the first time through. I would recommend Callum for any musical project, he has a great ear!
Callum is simply one of the best. I've worked with him for nearly 10 years now and he is always highly professional and hard-working, working hell for leather to get the tones you need and didn't know you wanted. Not to mention one of the nicest and caring guys on the planet!
Cal is, very simply, my go to engineer. I know that no matter what I throw at him, i'll get an outstanding result without any hassle. He's brilliant to work with, a lovely human being, and his ear is second to none. Cannot recommend highly enough.
