    I enjoyed working with Karl on his music. He is a talented composer and had a strong idea to work with. We had a clear dialogue throughout the project and ended up with a great record. Looking forward to another opportunity to work with him in the future!

    Again, wonderful working with Karl. He’s a great producer and a nice person besides. I always look forward to it. Is this five projects we’ve worked on together now? I hope there are more.

    Karl is a consistently great client. He's attentive to detail, but very flexible about how I get to deal with his material and supportive about trying different ideas. He's also been very patient with me with some recent technical issues I've had, and I really appreciate continuing to work with him despite that. Very much deserving of his five stars. He also writes great stuff!
