    Vincent is a delight to work with. What I really like about him is that he really takes the time to listen and connect with a song. He is pro, easy to communicate with and really encourages the artist.
    I cannot wait to work on further music with him.

    If you have not worked with him yet, you are missing out.

    I had my daughter work with V man. I was very impressed by his professionalism dedication and how he handled working with a 13yr old - he was able to build her confidence, reassuring her but also being honest with her. Making her first studio experience amazing. He has mad skills on the keyboard and has an ear for tone. What you need from a producer for sure. He is not stiff in his approach either
    Big up
    I could go on..

    Working with V-MAN is absolutely amazing. Good mastery and sound engineering. Probably one of the few who value not only consumer satisfaction but also quality production in terms of content. In addition to that, he's a nice guy to be around to, he will counsel you appropriately on what to do and what not do as an artiste.

The next step would be to make sure that there are no errors in the tracks/stems. I then do a rough balance and listen to the song several times.
