4 ReviewsEndorse Ryan Hayes
Ryan has saved the day on several of our events. Whether it is talking heads, 15 piece bands, or a studio session, he goes above and beyond expectations providing clean and clear sound. An example of his outstanding problem solving abilities involved recovering a corrupt recording from another engineer on our staff. When it came time to pick an audio engineer for my own wedding, Ryan was an easy choice!
Ryan is a top notch sound and music scientist! He is the only person I trust to mix my songs how I envision them sounding. His mixes always improve my confidence as an artist and make me sound fantastic. He's easy to work with and I'm always amazed with his knowledge of his craft. I would recommend him to anyone.
I put my trust in Hayes Audio. You will not be disappointed with any work provided . Ryan will efficiently do what it takes to exceed your expectations !
We had audio issues with an ad campaign that our in-house editor wasn’t able to fix. We hired Ryan and HE SAVED OUR PROJECT by fixing the over-modulation and smoothing out pops and clicks. Very happy with his work.
