    Sada did an amazing job. I couldn't be happier. He not only delivered in a timely manner, but top notch mixing quality. Sada is very professional, flexible and easy to work with. It was a pleasure to work with him. I am looking forward to working with him on more projects.

    I had the pleasure of recently working with Sada for the first time on a bluesy rock song written for commercial use. I can honestly say, I didn't know it was possible for me to like the 'sound' of my own voice but after his mixing and production work, I'm extremely proud of this song and I can't wait to work with this talented man again soon!

    We were looking for a rock mix on a country album we recorded in Nashville and when it came back I was surprised to hear some things I hadn't know even existed in the earlier studio mixes. Sada worked surprisingly fast and I am stoked on his mixes.
