A: Helping people create the nest sounding audio they can.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: How long will this take? Usually 2 - 3 days per song depending on the current work load. How much will this cost? That depends on the job (An acoustic guitar and vocal will be cheaper than 100+ tracks) Can you do this cheaper? Usually the answer is NO - But if your nice, maybe we can work something out (WARNING - Please be aware these jobs usually take longer to get it and you might not get as much mix revisions. These jobs also require 100% payment upfront.)

Q: Can you share one music production tip?
