    Enjoyable to work with!
    My project was relatively large and get higher requirement. Thus I set a reasonable budget and keep browsing 20+ proposals from some mixing engineers on Sound Better.Also I received several short mixes from those proposals here. But to Mister T's mix was the best mix I received! Creative ,Professional, & fast!
