Jesse is an incredible music mixologist! Hahahaa. He has a good ear and no matter if I recorded it in my untreated bedroom, he still knows how to turn it into a radio ready sounding record. I will definitely be referring his services to others! Don't pass this up, he's the best and super affordable.
wow! jesse S is just flat out awesome.. My experience with him was simply amazing he responds really fast he also gives great insight on enhancing your project he is ooen to your ideas and understands art I wouldn't reccommend anyone but Jesse this is the go guy if you want mastering and music done fast and correct. He literally save the day for me
I've been working with sound byte for the past year and a half now. and everything that he's finished for me has just been that "Great." I encourage all to engage in his great skills as a musical engineer within his profession. Everyone compliments me on the tracks that he touched. THIS GUY IS THE AWESOME!
Man, worked with Jessie for almost 3 months in New Orleans. Best Engineer I've came across. Great mixer, catches on to your style so quick. Even though he moved to Cincinnati, still work with him. He still edits my tracks, mixes etc. Super Easy to work with, that's most important. Laid back chill dude. Can't go wrong with Jessie man!
