I am extremely pleased with the work Oscar and SoundHabits have done for me and my music. The level of expertise and talent he bring to the mixing process is truly remarkable. My songs have surpassed all expectations and sound far superior to anything I could have imagined. What I appreciate most is that Oscar always respects my demo version as a starting point, incorporating my original vision into the final product. His dedication and skill have undoubtedly elevated my music to new heights.

These guys at Sounbhabits really know music. Professional, responsive and a great atmosphere makes SoundHabits a perfect choice.
