    Yilmaz is one of a kind hardworking person.
    It’s rare that you come across standout talent like Yilmaz.
    ‘Ridiculously efficient’ is the phrase that comes to mind when I think about him.
    Yilmaz's ability to juggle multiple projects is unlike any I see. He makes a dramatic difference in the productivity level in every aspect ..

    Yilmaz is a hard working, dedicated and reputable audio engineer. He is very experienced in live sound productions.


    I had the pleasure to meet Yilmaz at some DAS AUDIO seminars. He has the ability to make sound topics enjoyable for people regardless their knowledge on sound. He's got the ability to listen to others and a friendly way of gathering with colleagues. He's built up his reputation based on passion and hard work. Keep it up Yilmaz

    Yilmaz is one of a kind in the proaudio business.

    We worked together with Yılmaz about one year in Turkey behind a major artist. After lots of concerts we made, i can say Yılmaz is the answer for a musician. He has a perfect ability of finding solution for any technical problem. Since he is a great musician, he has a big understanding for a musician playing at stage. That's the profession.

    We met at a festival in Antalya, Turkey. Yilmaz was mixing the headliner.
    He's a very friendly engineer with a relaxed approach, but was working out every detail of his show. We met again in a few trade shows, where he taught me a few tricks on products there.
    Overall, someone you can talk to and rely on.
