    Daniela once again delivered very useful advices to improve the mix. Also, it's very much understandable for non-pro mixers. We will let Daniela review the whole album.

  5. Review by Magnus Lundberg

    Hired Daniela for the third time to do a soundcheck on my Mix and Master. Her input has been very valuable in improving my songs, and for me to grow and getting better as well. I highly recommend anyone working independently to bring Daniela on board for a soundcheck. Thanks, Daniela, for supporting my journey and helping my songs fly.
