Benoit Munoz is incredible to work with! Patient is the first word that comes to mind. I was very specific with my ideas and he accommodated all of them. Very professional and did not waste any time. I would highly recommend him to mix your next record.
Benoit helped me work on the production and arrangement for some songs from my most recent album. He has an excellent critical ear, both in terms of establishing what a track needs in terms of sonics, and where the instrumentation needs to take the listener. He is also a pleasure to work with. I hope we can collaborate again in the future!
Ben's got it together - skills, personality, pro-vibe, and gets it done!!
I have worked with Benoit on several occasions in both USA and Europe, notably on creating and mastering music for my digital and cinema projects, and I recommend him as a professional devoted to quality and who has a deep understanding of what music, and sound in general, is.
Benoit worked on a project with me and a partner and mine and let me tell you, the man has an ear for greatness. He took our sound and elevated it to the next level. His work ethic, passion and drive pours out in his mixes. A very talented and easy to work with individual who's professionalism is unmatched. A pleasure to have worked with.
I have had the pleasure of collaborating with Benoit on Many tracks.
He is super intuitive, and a good sounding board on song structure and form.
He is very adept at summoning sounds and grooves to enhance production.
As far as mixing goes he definitely knows his stuff. He makes it jump out of the speakers.
Benoit and I worked together on several projects. The very first song we worked on together was named as a finalist in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest. He composed, arranged, recorded and mixed that song. Benoit is great at what he does and always brings creative ideas into the studio.
I have been working alongside Benoit for many years. He is always professional and is adept in working in all styles of music. Whether it's mixing vocals or programming drums Benoit is at the top of his game. I highly recommend hiring him for your next project!
Benoit is totally on point. It's a pleasure to work with the cat and his knowledge is thorough. I continue to work with him and am grateful for his expertise and good nature.
Benoit has done a fantastic job mixing my documentary The Hermit.
He managed to make all the scenes connect better together and improved the quality of the film by artfully modulating the scores.
He really knows and loves his craft. I am looking forward to collaborating with him again.
I had the pleasure working with Benoit on several occasions. I work primarily with film, but we have crossed roads working together in pop music songs and soundtracks.
He has been my go to guy for mixing, production and ears. His mixes translate beautifully on any speaker.His production,studio skills and library are an asset to any composer.
