    Did an amazing mix of a song I was working on and helped me improve my own mix with a 2 hour video conference going over everything that could be improved and the way to do it. Would love to work with him again someday :)

    Came to Joshua for a mix critique and some production feedback and advice. He's got a wide breadth of knowledge and an honest and constructive approach to feedback. I hope to work on future mixes with him.

    There isn’t a better engineer out there than Josh. Period. He works with you to get the sound you want. He can really really tweak vocals to get them right. I call him The Wizard. This is my second time working with him. We did a whole project in December. Amazing work!

    Josh nailed it! We spoke about the specifics of what I was looking for and he really got it. After only two iterations of a mix he got it. He worked quickly and is really knowledgeable and professional. I recommend.

    Josh is by far the best engineer I have worked with. He can both MIX AND MASTER amazingly. Not a lot of people can really do both right. Been through countless engineers. He is by far the best!

    Working with Joshua was a breeze; he was very easy to communicate with from the start and totally nailed our first mix. He was able to hear the rough demo mix and now exactly how to fine-tune things from there. Would absolutely recommend working with him!

    Joshua is great! Had him mix and master a couple tracks so far and hopefully we'll continue to work together. He gets things done in a timely manner, and really is able to convert what I say in sometimes vague terms into exactly what I'm looking for in the mix.

    Josh mixed our 14 track debut album and he made it sound so great. He was patient, professional and a pleasure to work with.
    He invested even more time to make us happy and delivered multiple versions of each song! We can recommend Josh unreservedly!

    Joshua did the mixing on one of my songs. Because of the lock down i was not able to stick to the deadline we agreed up on but for him this was never a problem. He was very patient & always tried to understand what i wanted. He even took the time to listen to some of my recorded instruments & gave his feedback long before the mixing process started. For someone who lives on another continent he offered an ideal streaming option to take part during the mix. The outcome very good!!

    Super clean mix and master. He made everything really simple to send over and provided multiple versions of the final files too. He also delivered everything earlier than he said he would, great customer service for sure.

    Joshua is super great! My case is kinda challenging with more than 80 tracks, complex structure, and some peculiar custmized instrument parts, but seems like Joshua is OMNIPOTENT! He is very delicate for doing the mixing, and be respectful and patient for the music. I believe I would have more cooperations with him.

    I don't use the word genius too lightly, but Joshua Valleau is exactly that. Expert skill level in the studio from engineering and producing to mixing and mastering. Wonderful musician too. Fast, efficient - just makes your music sound better. I've made several albums with JV, and plan to keep it going.

    Josh is really great to work with. He’s excellent at punching up the sonics of your track without disturbing the vibe. He leaves no footprint except making the song really slamming and clear. He’s got great taste all around, and a nice mix of high end digital and analog capabilities he wields expertly. Highly recommend trying him out if you haven’t already.

    Josh moves fast with an incredible ear for detail. You will not stump him with a reference and he will make polite suggestions when asked. I worked in the studio and remotely with him on the Melissa and the Mannequins album and he was invaluable. I can't wait to work with him again.

    I recorded a 10 track album with Josh. I was thrilled with the way all the tracks came out. He has an excellent ear, all the technical skills needed, he's a ridiculous keyboardist - but my favorite part is that he was always willing to try something different. Never squashed a quirky or out-there idea, always built on it. I was really happy with he process and am getting ready to record another album with Josh soon.

    Josh mixed and mastered my 6-song EP; mostly folk-rock songs. I was extremely happy with his work and he was a very thoughtful individual to work with; I felt he truly cared about my songs. Dude is incredibly talented. Everything was super clean, quick, and organized as well. Certainly plan on working with him again!

    Josh is an absolute pleasure to work with. His versatility with different musical genres as well as with keyboards and synths is pretty astounding. The speed at which he works is also pretty incredible, what would cost more money by working with someone else who’s slower is a substantial difference. His studio is comfortable and well-equipped and on top of everything, he’s a really nice guy! Listens to what you want and is supportive and encouraging. I wholeheartedly recommend!

    Josh has a remarkable way of making artists sound better than they can imagine and exactly like themselves at the same time. A masterful producer who demonstrates his expertise, extreme care + attention to detail with every project, I've watched him earn "musical guru" status among his many diverse clients because he's scary-good. Gear-heads freak out about his studio and everyone freaks out about the good vibes and workflow. I made a rock album with my band, a synth-pop-r&b album from the ground-up, and have done tons of commercial VO recordings in the space. Josh is always my first call.
