    Nicolas is seriously great. Technically, his mixes are so tight, smart, refined, and pro. Creatively, he knows how to perfectly turn an idea into reality, getting just the sound I was aiming for. And professionally, he's super patient. My schedule caused me to be less responsive than I usually am, but he was always cool, understanding, and uber fast with turning stuff around. Highly recommend.

    Nicholas is one of the beat we have worked with. His attention to detail and passion for making things sound the absolute best they could- lets just say it doesnt happen very much anymore in this business. Nicholas understands subtlety within pitching and mixing vocals is superb.
    Nicolas is someone who will put as much effort in assisting your project as you did making it from the ground up.
    We are definitely going to work with him again, and can not wait till that moment!

    Nico is extremely helpful, friendly and professional. He encouraged me to make as many edits/requests as needed to reach the alternative rock sound I was looking for, and he is extremely proficient in mixing and mastering in Pro Tools. I had a blast working with him, and will definitely collaborate with him again in the future.

    Nico did an outstanding job recording and mixing the scores for our four short documentary-commercials. His attention to detail and willingness to perfect his work is truly something that is difficult to find in the industry. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a highly-skilled, highly-talented, and truly excellent audio engineer.
