My wife and I had such a great time working with Steve! He was very professional and easy to work with. We felt so special when he had water bottles and fruit out for us as well as many candles and incense (to my wife’s delight!). His knowledge of how and where to mic my saxophone was great as well. Steve made it easy for us to record in a way that was most comfortable for us as we prefer to play live and to have that same feeling on our recordings as well. Top notch mixing and mastering! Please contact Steve with any recording, mixing, or mastering needs! Thanks Steve!
Steve is mixing and mastering my record, and it is sounding amazing! He truly puts his heart into giving you the sound and mix that you are happy with.
Unlike other producers, he let's me help produce and get the sound I hear in my head.
He is a super nice guy as well, so it makes it alot easier as well.
I highly recommend Steve for recording/mixing/mastering your project!
