Needed a quick turn around on Bass track for my song. Roxy delivered!!! Thank you so much Roxy!
Roxy hit it out of the park with her Bass line she came up with for my song. She also did a great job on guitar tracks to boot! I look forward to working with her on future songs.
Roxy did a wonderful job. I would recommend her for Bass work and mixing. She also added some great drums to my beat.
I needed help editing and mixing the voiceover for a promotional video. She did a phenomenal job removing noise, mixing and editing the audio and approaches each project with diligence and professionalism.
She’s super professional with a great ear for modern punk/metal music. Seamless work flow. Lots of gear to play with for us tone junkies. If you just want to plug in and play she can have you dialed in with an awesome tone in no time.
A true professional, and a pleasure to work with! Will go the extra mile on your project as a musician and engineer. Highly recommend!!
