Tre was extremely informative, broke down every unit of his production business to a tee, high quality business up to speed business. I was questionable at first, but after extensive information and shown results he's won my trust and endorsement, TR3 is the way to go!
Very professional and comfortable atmosphere working with Tr3 Studio. Since the beginning of our acquaintance, Tre has offered helpful suggestions to move the quality of my music forward! He has a wealth of knowledge and doesn't mind sharing it. This is my first time doing business with Tr3 but it definitely wont be the last! Thank You Tr3 Studio & Live Sound!
Tr3 Studio is by far the most professionally and well balanced studios I've had the pleasure of working with. Outside of the professionalism of the staff, Tr3 Studios exemplifies a passion for music that only rivals the greats in the industry. Trust me, they are not just button pushers. With every bar in the song they seek greatness and will push an artist past his own limitations.
Great homely environment TR3 Studio brought outta me a side I never knew existed professionals at wat they do. No matter who's at the helm i enjoyed every moment they gave what I was looking for and educated me in the process.I recommend TR3 STUDIOS!! to any SERIOUS artists out there who ain't afraid to put in the foot work it's not an easy road but with people like them only you can stop you.(JK)
Tre's experience, and knowledge with his equipment is something I've never came across. His fast pace and focus type of work ethic is tremendous. You want dedication and professional work done, definitely use his services.
A very intricate individual and a perfectionist to say the least. Due to his background and understanding of music he makes it his mission to bring the best out of what he is introduced to. No complaints and only gratitude for his work and work ethic.
