It's great working with Arthur. He always puts in 110% to make the mixes sound perfect and I love the fact that he is fast and precise. We are working on more projects together. He is a talented and dedicated professional...
Arthur did again a terrific work. All the revisions needed were satisfied to get the better from the song. Very responsive and efficient, always paying attention to your will and intention. Highly recommended
I highly recommend Arthur. Amazing work, professionalism and smooth communication.
Professional, patient and quick!
Arthur was a pleasure to work with. Immediate response every time, and with good and professional result.
This is my second time working with Arthur and it just solidifies his talent and professionalism. Very open minded and easy to work with.
I'll be working with him on another right away.
Arthur is excellent in his communication, and he obviously knows his craft. He was quick to make changes when they were asked for, and he skillfully edited and mastered my track with adeptness not easy to find in this business! Thank you, Arthur!
Arthur did a demanding job on verry short time. That would be impossible if he didn't have good skills and much experience. My recomandations.
Arthur has been patient, respectful and an absolute pleasure to work with. There is always dialogue during the timeframe of the project and each side's opinion is greatly valued. It's always amazing to collaborate with people who put music first and try to realize the material's full potential. I highly recommend him!
Arthur is a rare find - professional, responsive, easy to work with. Not only that, but he went far above and beyond in enhancing the songs and bringing his exceptional creativity to the project. I would absolutely recommend him.
Arthur is a true professional in every sense of the word. Open minded and super talented with a great vision. Ill be working with him immediately on some other tracks!
This was my first experience using SoundBetter and it was excellent. Arthur is a pro. He took a song that sounded flat and really made it sing. He was responsive to my input and I can not emphasize how amazingly quick he works. Thanks for everything.
It is a pleasure to build a professional relationship with Arthur, who has the experience, talent and openness to drive a project in the right direction. Thanks Arthur!
Arthur did a great job! My track sounds professional with his mastering job.Warm and deep in the same time.He followed my directions and fulfilled my wishes about the final product .High recommendations!
Great sounding mix and more than happy to make any necessary changes... fully recommended...
Arthur is an experienced, open-minded enthusiast with a clear vision for a project. As a singer/songwriter at a turning point in my career, I am enjoying collaborating with Arthur to steer my path in a new direction and I feel confident and supported by his involvement. Straight-talking, musical, bold, a good listener, positive and open-minded.
Arthur is a pro, in every sense of the word. From helping craft a vision for our project, to executing on the vision, to delivering beautiful & creative music - he followed through on every step of the process. He is a master at his craft. Thank you, Arthur!
Working with Arthur was everything that a production experience should be. He made my visions come to life with ease, and even expanded my concept with his suggestions. I would definitely work with Arthur again!
Arthur is a great musician and producer. He provided an excellent mix for me. His communication with me was first class and I would recommend him to everyone. He puts a lot of heart into his work and that comes across in his attitude and his talent. Great work and will be back for more...!! Thanks again Arthur....
Every experience collaborating with Arty over the past 15 years has been a genuine pleasure. Whether he's arranging and producing in NYC or making Pro Tools edits on the fly at Abbey Road, he's a consummate professional and first rate musician. Can't wait until our next collaboration!

Arthur is modern day Samurai. Incredible skill, great humility, deadly talent. It was a true honor to have worked with him.
Arthur and I have worked together on numerous occasions. He is a skilled composer, arranger, engineer, producer and instrumentalist (he plays clarinet, saxophone and other woodwinds and is an incredible guitarist as well). Whether you need a tasteful clarinet passage or a vibey guitar part, or a song produced top to bottom, Arthur is your man.
Arthur's ability to collaborate and execute on a wide range of musical styles is top notch. His extreme facility on multiple instruments and software make his "well, let's at least try it once" approach super productive and fun. His ability to communicate and get the most out of his partners makes him a gifted collaborator. #RealDeal
Arthur is one of the best writer's and instrumentalists I've ever worked with. We have worked on very big projects together and I wouldn't want anyone else in there with me. Amazing arranger, writer, and hands down the best multi-instrumentalist one could hope for.
Mixing and producing 5/5 as well.
Arthur is a great musical mind and a fantastic collaborator. He is relentless in his quest to "unlock" the right music for the situation, and his wide range of musical talents give him a lot of angles to look from. Highly recommended!
