It was a pleasure to work with Wenz mastering. He delivered a high quality professional sounding master of my track and a very fast turn around time. Looking forward to working with him again soon.
Michael has some great ears, and it has been a pleasure to see him mature and develop world-class production capabilities. I have been in the business 20 + years and haven't met a more pragmatic and conscientious engineer. A+.
