  1. Review by Tristan A.

    Great communication, quick turnaround time, and the finished product came out awesome, wouldn’t hesitate to work with Anthony again!

  2. Review by Matt Novitsky

    Our band needed to mix a single that spanned across several genres. After hearing Anthony's resume on his page, we knew he could tackle this project. The experience was fantastic. Anthony listens to what you want, pays close attention to detail, and makes it happen. We couldn't be happier with our final mix/master. It was a pleasure for us to work with Anthony!
