Great work as usual. This time Vince helped me fix some of our songs with new guitar tracks + mixing :)
Vince did a great job again with mixing and mastering our song. I was originally a bit concerned about this song as I was hoping to get a very specific sound/vibe for this song, but it turned out better than I hoped after a couple of iterations.
It was very easy to work with Vince again. He is very responsive and attentive to detail. I really value that he is doing his best to meet my requirements that are sometimes very detailed - and also provide helpful proposals for improvements as required
Vince did mixing and mastering for our entire album and he did a fantastic job. He was very responsive and really tried his best meeting the client requirements. I really appreciated that he always followed through even with the smallest of my detailed requests and never shied away from addressing issues in the mix. He also improved the sound design with some of his VSTs to replace some of my less-than-ideal MIDI sounds per my request. Great person to work with.
It is a real pleasure to work with Vince. He is a great mixing engineer who is very detailed in his mixes and he has perfected his craft so he can be both detailed and fast at the same time. Communication with Vince has been super-easy. He "gets it" even when I am asking for some changes that are not very easy to explain. True pro.
Vincenzo is the man! The kind of honest perfectionist you can easily love & respect for his standards. I wish all artists were more like him. Bravo Vincenzo!
Another great project experience with Vincenzo! Much learned, much achieved. Off to the next!
Vincenzo is an amazing musician. His skills, ideas and proficiency is second to none. He is honest, insightful, timely, and has the kind of studio knowledge that makes all the difference. I will be working with him on many projects moving forward as his approach really maintains the kind of creative vibe that is critical for amazing, art inspired results. If you are looking for a well balanced professional with a full skill set, look no further. Vincenzo is your clear choice.
He is amazing guitarist,sound engineer and producer too.He consult excellent with the musicians as musician on collab or as sound engineer too.He does amazing things all for his own.So... Hire him guys you will not dissapoint!! Cheers
