    I have worked with Peter Mix for over two decades on gold and platinum records for my groups like 3rd Bass, NAS, O.C, Non Phixion and he has always delivered superior mixes and is great to work with. His ear is second to none. His ability to deliver a quality recording is consistent and equally satisfying. I always look forward to working with him.

    I have recorded at Pete's studio on multiple occasions, and highly recommend working with him. He has a musicians ear, which is a great asset in the studio, and is extremely courteous and easy to work with. I plan on recording at Ocean Analog in the very near future!

    Peter is amazing to work with and a great guy too. He works quickly and methodically. No ego, he is all about whatever will make the song sound great and is totally open to new ideas. I worked with him for a bunch of songs on my last album and I'm so glad I did! PS, he will get you the most badass guitar sounds around!

    Peter has recorded and mixed the audio for my two wedding band videos and I cannot recommend him highly enough. He has amazing ears for all styles of music (important in my line of work) and my business would not be as successful without his fine work. The feedback from booking agents and customers has truly been astounding! Simply put, he is an audio magician!!!!
