Reviews of Adam Tilzer

    Adam ran multiple back to back marathon recording lockouts for us and did an amazing job. He is tireless, hard-working, super organized and always upbeat (even on the 45th take). What I look for in a recording engineer is real musical expertise and patience. Adam has both in equal amounts.

    Adam is a wizard behind the desk! Not only does he understand recording from a technical perspective, but also from an artistic perspective. He is fun to be around, and his humor creates an environment that encourages artists to preform at their very best.

    One of the best engineers in the city! We had the opportunity to work with Adam on a full-length album for a 5-piece indie band, and I would hire him again in a second. Adam is fantastic in the studio -- professional, attentive, efficient and doesn't waste time, yet relaxed and super fun to work with. He's got an incredible ear, great insights and gear, and will help you achieve the right tone.

    Adam's the best! His skills, his demeanor, everything...he's a huge asset to any session and I will always call him when I need an engineer/ mixer/ guitarist/ good vibe machine. He's worked with some of the best in the biz and there's many many reasons people keep calling him back in. Thank you Adam!

    Adam has been bringing a smile to my face since approximately 2012. He's not only incredibly gregarious and easy to get along with, but his skills are rock solid and he has a heart of gold as well. Adam is definitely an asset!

    With so many years under his belt working for the best in the business, Adam is a seasoned pro. He has been on both sides of the glass and can bring out the best in any artist.

  • Default-avatar4 months agoby

    Adam was our unanimous pick for Chief Engineer. So much to say, where to start? Skills: Expert engineer, experienced musician and producer; Personality: Fast-learner, charismatic, honest, to-the-point; Intangibles: Can-do-attitude, values attention to detail, leads with confidence and follows instructions with humility. Forget reading reviews... one conversation with him and you’ll be convinced!

  • Default-avatar4 months agoby

    Adam is an amazing dude. Was super engaged with my band and me when we recorded our debut. Couldn't have been luckier with the beginning of my recording career...

  • Default-avatar4 months agoby

    I've had the pleasure of mastering numerous projects for Adam. His attention to detail and amazing ears makes all of his work stand out. It's always a good day at the studio when Adam is around.

  • Default-avatar4 months agoby

    A genius behind the board, a beautiful mind behind the music. What can I say about Adam that you can't hear for yourself in any one of his recordings? As a musician, he understands both sides of the music, which allows for him to delve deeper into precision engineering, innovative techniques, and artistic production, while maintaining an endless knowledge of equipment (both vintage and modern).

    Starfighter!!
    My name I gave him simply because of his lightning fast skills at fighting the demons and imps of thr sonic necessity!!
    Starfighter can chew gum,talk,mix,edit and "cut and paste" all at the same time on different projects....I WATCHED IT WITH MINE OWN EYES!!!
    Passion.......That is STARFIGHTER!!!

  • Default-avatar4 months agoby

    Adam is a treat to work with. Open-minded, explorative, and QUICK on that board. He's also solid as a stone on guitar!

  • Default-avatar4 months agoby

    My sessions with Adam have been great sounding, efficient and relaxed. He knows the gear and how to get the tunes done while maintaining a comfortable environment. What more could one ask for?!

  • Default-avatar4 months agoby

    I've known Adam for many years and I have had the opportunity to work with him on a wide variety of projects. He is a true professional when it comes to music and recording techniques. Most importantly, he genuinely loves music and takes on each project as if it was his own.
    Finally, his guitar pedal collection is absolutely incredible!

    Adam is not only a wonderful engineer to work with, he is a fantastic human. That to me, is as crucial as anything! A smart dude, insightful, attentive, thoughtful, and one hell of a pair of ears!!

  • Default-avatar4 months agoby

    Solid guy & strong talent. Knows the gear, knows the sounds. No time wasting.

  • Default-avatar4 months agoby

    Adam is easily one of the most proficient and gifted producers I've had the pleasure of working with. He can help flesh out bare tracks with just the right amount of flourish and make dense tracks lush in a way Dave Fridmann wishes he still could.

  • Default-avatar4 months agoby

    Adam was an engineer at a studio which I managed for several years. He was beloved by clients - not only for his work, but also for his professional and engaging manner. He could work with everyone from high-profile stars to artists recording a demo, and make everyone feel equally comfortable, bringing the best out of their performances.

  • Default-avatar4 months agoby

    Dedicated and hardworking Adam is a pleasure to be with in the studio. His demeanor is kind and embracing.

  • Default-avatar4 months agoby

    I've had the opportunity to sit in during some of Adams recording sessions as my bf had played music with him and recorded with him in the past. He made the environment comfortable and fun to be in. Adam had great constructive criticism and the final results were outstanding.

  • Listing_thumb_fb_img_14917829543924 months agoby

    Adam is one of the best. Efficient, knowledgeable, creative, professional.

  • Default-avatar4 months agoby

    Adam is one of the best Producer/Engineers in the NYC area! He knows music, recording, gear, computers, food, social networking and so much more! His work ethic is unmatched and he cares about the artists around him. An awesome guitarist with an arsenal of pedals and a huge network of musicians, he's an asset to any project. Also, he loves PEZ!

  • Default-avatar4 months agoby

    I have recorded both piano and vocals with Adam, and he is one of the most patient and knowledgeable engineers/producers I have ever worked with. He makes his clients feel comfortable and relaxed above all, and puts great care into every project he works on with a limitless amount of ingenuity, a fresh perspective, and a creative approach.

  • Default-avatar4 months agoby

    Adam is my favorite engineer to work with. He knows his way around the studio and gets things done seamlessly. I can always depend on him to get things up and running fast so the creativity can flow without missing a beat. From tracking to mixing, he's one of the best.

  • Default-avatar4 months agoby

    There is not enough room here to describe all of Adam's talents. I can trust him on any project and know that it's going to come out as I pictured. He has transformed my sound and helped me find my voice. On top of all that, he is just a great person. You are stupid if you don't work with him.
