    This is my second time working with Direckt, and I equally as satisfied with my track as I was the first time. I can be very picky when it comes to having my music mixed, but Direckt took all of my request and elevated my song to the next level.

    Looking forward to working with Direckt again. During a tight deadline he mixed and mastered my tracks to rock the speakers at an event. When there where no time restraints, he shined through brighter. Be sure to communicate what you need down to the specifics. He will listen. I use Ableton, so I had to prepare him stems instead of project files.
    Side note: to all you producers out there... when sending stems to a Mix Engineer, label them accordingly. Just do it. Name your files appropriately.
