    Sam helped me do the recording and production for one of my flute tracks - I can be a bit meticulous with every second being perfect but Sam was patient with all my requests and made sure everything was done to the high standards both him and me were happy with. Looking forward to our next project!

    Working with Sam was a great experience. I’m chuffed with the mix down on one of my tracks. He absolutely nailed it.

    We engaged Sam to produce content for a company showreel witch included complex VR audio. The finished product will be listened to by the music industry amount others. To say we wee delighted with the end result is an understatement, Sam went above and beyond the call of duty. I would not hesitate to recommend Sam
