    Daniela restored two tracks for me that we recorded by my late grandmother in the 40's. They were hard to hear, fuzzy, popping noises, and she restored them so much better than I thought possible! I can't wait to share these with my family!

    Daniela is the best mixer I have ever worked with! She is very knowledgeable, determined, and confident in her work. Because I am a natural perfectionist…sometimes I could get really specific, Daniela stood by my mixing notes, giving me exactly what I wanted and more. I will definitely work with her again, you will not be disappointed!

    Working with Daniela has been a fun and pleasent experience. She will definately be mixing all my tracks. Her mixes are fresh.
    She is one of the few who still has a ear for you, not to mention a smile.
    How can we thank you.

    We have worked with Daniella several times now and could not be happier with our experiences. She is so talented, very fast and efficient, and incredibly knowledgeable in her field. She is absolutely one of the very best we have worked with. As a bonus she is fun and easy to be around, which helps to make the long hours in the studio enjoyable.

    Daniela is AMAZING! She makes the mix process all about the artist while making recommendations to make your project come to life! Daniela openly shares helpful tips as well. I've learned a great deal from her already. She is very professional and fun to work with. There is no ego, or lack of communication!! I will use her again and again!!!

Interview with dRIVmusic

  1. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  2. A: Both, can't live without either!

  3. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
