Wow! Tyler made my basic, stock sounding tracks sound like a million bucks. Tyler has an unlimited amount of patience that he displayed by allowing me multiple revisions and really took the time to get into my head to understand the style and sound I was going for. Then he nailed it! I learned a lot in the process and Tyler was happy to guide me through it. There wasn't anything that he couldn't answer and solve. At the end of the day, I'm extremely pleased and even surprised at how pro I sound.
I am very pleased with the collaboration with Tyler.
This is our second job and I think not the last one!
First time to use Sound Better! What a wonderful experience! Tyler was great!
Tyler has once again provided me with an incredible mix and also a willingness to listen to any feedback I provided in the process!

Another successful job done with Tyler! I appreciate what you do! Thank you!
Unbelievably fantastic. Transformed my song into something truly professional, and worked with me to get just the right mix even when I was super picky. Highly recommend!!!
Such a great professional. Got exactly what I wanted at all times, really fast delivery but the best quality at the same time. Can’t wait to work with you again!
Tyler is Great Man, very responsive and heedful!
I really pleased for the excellent result I got.
Plain and simple - Tyler is the bomb! Fast, knowledgeable, great attention to detail....and most importantly he takes pride in his work and his word. He delivered a great mix while dealing with a strict time constraint, and I highly recommend him to everyone
As usual, Tyler took my song to the next level with his mix!
Great working with Tyler once again. I am grateful for what he is able to do. Great style! No request is off limits and makes me feel comfortable to make sure everything is right to my ears. Until next time!
Tyler is the real deal! Super professional and really easy to work with. Great ears!
Tyler jumped right on the project and was able to add clarity and cohesiveness to a track where I was pretty happy with the rough but wanted to see if he could take it to the next level. He did. First round was really close and with a few tweaks he nailed it. In fact the only tweaks were a few instrument levels, the sounds & EQ were spot on from the beginning. Great to work with and positive, productive attitude throughout.
5 Stars for the effort and enthusiasm alone.. had quite a few hiccups that we overcame, and he went above and beyond to fulfill my needs.. Great communication.. which is HUGE with the way this operation is set up.. The only thing I’d like to recommend, is going in with a solid idea of what, and how you want things to go.. If you have the overall vision, you will absolutely not leave unsatisfied.. Great work Tyler, and thanks for everything ✊
Finished a 6 song project with Tyler. He continues to impress me with his talents, attitude and patience. Thank you!
Second time working with Tyler. I really enjoy the quality of his work as well as his great attitude. Great working with him! Thanks again Tyler!
I could not be in better hands to mix my first album. Tyler has the required patience, calm and he works properly with each of the songs in order to achieve 100% of what was expected. I am grateful to be able to write in the credits of my album "Tyler Spratt Mixing and Mastering Engineer", Congrats! Excellent job!
Great working with Tyler. Tyler is not only a talented engineer but he is very polite, open and personable. He simply makes the whole process easy. Tyler's mix was great and captured that modern pop sound I was hoping for. I couldn't be happier with the result. Thank you!
Tyler has been my go to mixer for the past 6 months! He is the perfect balance between speed and excellence in mixing. Thank you for taking my productions to the next level!
I have worked with some great producers and mixing engineers. From Ted Jensen (Sterling Sound) and many others. This guy is the real deal! I’m so excited to have him in my musical career as a producer and engineer! He’s made Bright Black a sonic super nova!
Tyler is kick ass engineer and producer for Bright Black. He goes above and beyond to humor our sometimes endless edits. Everything always comes out sounding amazing in the end. You're in good hands going to him, believe me.
Tyler is hands down the most talented and professional mixing engineer I have ever had the pleasure of working with. His attention to detail and dedication to making sure his clients are beyond satisfied always takes any track to it's fullest potential.
Tyler is a very talented mixer, super professional, and 100% reliable. He has mixed several songs for me and other artists I work with. Half for film/TV, and half for artistic projects, and he always takes what I had in my rough mixes to the next level. And quickly. I can't recommend him enough. He's always available for your feedback and his turnaround can't be beat.
