Harold does excellent work.
Harold takes a personal approach to each project, and delivers beautiful sounding masters. Highly recommend!
Harold has mastered a couple of projects that have come through my hands, every time the result has been nothing less than perfect! Harold is an extremely competent Mastering Engineer and a great person to boot! I strongly recommend Harold for any Mastering project!
I’ve had the privilege and pleasure to work with Harold on a wide variety of musical projects. Including my own records. It’s amazing to witness him shapeshift from one project to another. He misses nothing and knows just how to adapt to each project with a wizards wand.
One thing I find that sets Harold apart from the many other mastering engineers I’ve worked with, is that he masters it like a seasoned MUSICIAN. He truly listens to every nuance. He works wonders with music / mixes that only need a finishing touch or a total uplift. He’s an absolute treasure to work with.
I have worked with Harold on a couple of projects and what he does is amazing! He's a sorcerer of audio!
Harold was not only brilliant at mastering our material. He worked as the producer on our project in Nashville and was a joy to work with all the while keeping us at task. We finished recording ready to mix 15 songs in 2 days and Harold was instrumental in that massive undertaking. We would have never accomplished it without his help.
