    BV always brings out the best, not only in the Audio but he brings out the best in the Artist aswell. He has a way of keeping the Audio true and strong with out pushing or going overboard. I’ve been sending his mix’s for a few years now and he has always left my self and the artist extremely satisfied with his ability of bringing even more life to the song in his mastering process! BV for president.

    Anybody with Brian’s resume clearly knows all the gear & every trick, but his ability communicate is special. He is friendly, professional, & knowledgeable with an excellent ear. From pre-production to tracking, he’s able to provide feedback & evoke everyone's best performance. He creates a fun environment while keeping a productive pace (which ultimately saves money). During the mixing/mastering process, he is excellent in shaping the product to meet the needs of the band/artist. Beyond that, he is kind & patient. I consider myself lucky to work with him & I'm looking forward to next time.

    Brian Virtue is an excellent mix, mastering, and recording engineer, as well as a talented producer who truly knows how to capture an artist or bands vision. His knowledge of gear and the sonics that make great recordings and mixes, is simply amazing. He is super helpful with decisions that keep the project on course for success. I can’t say he has any weekness other than sometimes he wasn’t available for me! Highly recommended!

    It has been an absolute gift to have Brian's mixing expertise on several projects of mine in the past few years. Brian's knowledge, ability, and intuition are unmatched- he can get a sound dialed-in super efficiently with minimal need for revisions. His production background serves as a huge benefit as he is able to think beyond audio and really create an immersive experience for the listener. He's also a super nice human being- I could not recommend him more highly.

    I've been working with Brian for almost ten years and he's nailed every rock or pop mix I've sent his way. My songs get better and they sound great on every system. Highly recommended.
