I had Donnie mix one of my songs.. Great work! We discussed exactly what I wanted up-front & he was very understanding, quick, and efficient. Song sounds great!
I would definitely work with him again
Donnie has a work ethic I haven't seen from an engineer before. Highly detailed, and very meticulous when it comes to the sound you want, not to mention he takes direction very well. It was a great experience working with him. I look forward to working with Donnie in the future!
