    Seriously great experience working with Dan! He found just the right adjustments to bring the best out of a song that I've been stuck on for a looong time. He was very receptive to my notes on the first draft, got it all done in a timely manner, and was thoroughly amicable toward me and the material I sent for him to mix. Thanks Dan!

    Phenomenal artist, drummer, mixer, master-er-er(?)...all the things. And an all around cool dude.

    From the very beginning Dan was eminently professional. He had a ton of references that demonstrated the quality of his work, and his reputation was proven with the quality of the work he did on my project. He was timely, open and transparent, and communicated well throughout, even during a complicated holiday season. 10/10, would highly recommend.

    If you get opportunity to work with Dan you should take it. Not only cause he is a very talented mixing and mastering engineer but also because he is a considerate person who listens to feedback and cares for the project as if it where his own.
    I'm pleased with the result!
    Thank you Dan

    I needed mixing, mastering, and guitarwork for my upcoming 12-song album. I was lucky enough to find Dan Konopka, and after a few messages and a phone call, we were on our way. Dan's experience, attention, and empathy shined as he helped bring my one-man solo project to life. His mix decisions were spot on, he worked fast, and he energetically incorporated my feedback. I can't express enough my gratitude for this experience and Dan's talent and professionalism. Ready for the next one?
