    Had a blast working on this project! Very helpful with the info and direction I needed to get this done right.

  2. Review by Julius H.

    Samuel is a top pro; solid communication and understanding of my point of view strengthened the ideas that were important to me. Things I tried in the pre-mix came to life through his skilled work. Some elements that swayed a little were balanced as well. All smaller but valued enhancements made an impact, I learned what to do differently regarding my future arrangements. Vocal processing and autotune usage made the vocals sound perfect. I'm amazed at how much the sound improved overall.

    Awesome to work with!

  8. Review by Kristiina M.

    Samuel did a fabulous job mixing our song "Totuus". He made me sound just amazing despite of a no so great quality vocal recording, and the balance of the track and the little changes he made to the arrangement are jut top notch. Highly recommended!!

  10. Review by rafael f.

    Samuel is a talented mix-master pro; this is my third work done with him and I recommend. It is good to work with him because of clear communication and excellent result. My work with him was in pop style, but I believe he's able to work in lot of different genres without any problem!

    Great to work with. Got sick twice when the song was due and was still very patient with me. Very well recommended!

  12. Review by rafael f.

    Awesome job (again)! Very pleased with the results of my second single mixed and mastered by Samuel. Besides the technical aspects, the communication is smooth and the delivery is very fast.

  13. Review by rafael f.

    Samuel is a very talented pro. Overachieved my expectations. The communication was always fast, clear and smooth, no problem at all. He revised as much as I needed without any complaint and the result was amazing! For sure, I will look for him again for my upcoming projects!

    Samuel is awesome! I did some vocals for a great song of his, and he gave me the perfect balance of specific direction and artistic freedom. I loved his clear and fast responses, his professional behavior, and his overall lovely and kind attitude. For a singer, being able to sing songs you actually really like, combined with someone with a great attitude and professional behavior- it's rare and wonderful! Can't say enough good things about working with Samuel! :)

    I just did a mastering for Samuel. This was our very first work done together but I truly hope we get to work a lot more in the future as well!

  19. Review by Julius H.

    This was a great experience! Samuel guided me through the preparation of the stems, and it all made sense. He brought clarity to the song and also made good arrangement suggestions. The balance between compressor/EQ, rev/delay was achieved as only a true professional can do it. His approach and commitment are rare things to find in any marketplace.

  20. Review by Kristiina Treganna

    Samuel is a super efficient, fast working and talented producer/ mixer that is an absolute pleasure to work with. Highly recommended.
