  1. Review by John B.

    Fantastic experience with Clockwork. Very easy to work with. Great sounding recording quality and top-notch players. I was able to connect with them online and listen/interact while they were recording the section for my song. I thought of a couple of dynamic and note changes I wanted to change as I was listening and they did it on-the-spot. Definitely recommended!

  2. Review by Markus Martincic

    Incredible experience overall with my string quartet recording! I really enjoyed sitting remotely through the recording and listening to my music coming to life. Amazing performers, great recording quality and ease of communication is what makes Clockwork Sessions highly recommendable!

  4. Review by Chris Pilsner

    The Clockwork musicians that you have the opportunity to work with are absolutely phenomenal. Not to mention Kobus and Adam are terrific partners. I had a great time recording a concert work with them and the audio and video turned out fantastic.

  5. Review by Calum Minuti

    Not only is the musicianship top of the game, but the energy and focus everyone brings is impressive. They are quickly going to become every MIDI composers secret weapon. Work with them. You will never regret it.

  6. Review by Seonaid Aitken

    I was thoroughly inspired by the standard of players and personnel to really throw everything at my arrangement with the full confidence that the music would be executed flawlessly and with passion! As I was singing alongside the ensemble, I got to experience the fantastic warmth and tone of these incredible musicians first-hand! I'm delighted with the results - a recording of the highest quality!

  7. Review by Gary Lloyd

    This team make everything about orchestral recording seem like the easiest thing in the world with total commitment to excellence and complete support for anybody's ambitions. Adam and Kobus masterminded recording for a project I'm making with the hugely acclaimed writer Alan Moore and the choreographer Bettina Carpi and the results are staggering, far exceeding all my expectations.
