 Testimonials
"Excellent work! Love the choices of textures and sounds--very lush! And I don't know what you've done in your stereo mix, but it really has a nice sense of life! Doesn't sound hammered or overly processed, just comes beautifully out of the speakers--it doesn't feel at all like canned strings. I can't wait to hear the other stuff with it! Thanks for your work and the complete documentation--all that stuff helps! Once again, outstanding work!"
-- Tom Hall, engineer/mixer
