Track Cult set up my home studio, and is returning to go through the technology with me that supports the recording.

Jon is really awesome. I was really amazed to see his talent in recording and giving tips when recording the vocals. He has so much patience when recording. It was my first time recording vocals and I'm definitely going back to the studio from now on. Thank you Jon for making my song sound awesome.

Catharine has a beautiful and very comfortable studio. This was my first time recording and she made the process very easy and relaxing for me. She's very patient and willing to work to get the best possible sound out of a performer. I will definitely use Planetwood Productions when I am ready to record another song.

Catharine was incredibly professional and accommodating for my VO recording for a BBC documentary. We had the team in London on face time as we worked and we were all able to work effectively and smoothly thanks to Catharine. Her studio is very well equipped, clean and comfortable and she is very accomplished technically. We will be back again!

This was an amazing experience! I was impressed by the space, the lighting, the atmosphere, and energy. I felt a little nervous being my first time recording at a studio, but Evan took care of me by keeping my hydrated, comfortable, and able to get the material I wanted. Super patient, definitely recommend, I will be returning soon. Thank you!

Had a great time recording with Evan at the Spacemint. I was really impressed with his professional-quality studio and gear. He had everything ready to go when I got there, just had to plug in, set levels, and go! I tracked my stuff WAY faster than I thought and was really impressed with how things turned out. I’ll definitely be back.

The DJs who play, and the media outlets that review, the songs I recorded with Josh at Sing Engine constantly glow about the production quality. Some of the songs that I have recorded with Sing Engine have even been nominated for, and won, awards - largely due to Josh's attention to detail and wildly creative ability to add the perfect after effects, percussion, and unique instrumentation. I listened to the quality of work that came from other similarly priced studios, and I didn't get the feeling from most of them that they cared about the quality of work that they put their names on. Josh is meticulous, and won't put his name on something that isn't radio ready.

Indeed outstanding service. I booked very easily with Terrence as he had BY FAR the most reasonable price out of all the quotes I received. Booking was made by a few exchanges of messaging and we were good to go. His manner of speech and communication actually made me very comfortable and easy to work with him. As for the is a small room with professional sound/audio/mixing/mastering equipment. You should feel comfortable it in it, its cozy and gives you a peace of mind. Not recommended for the claustrophobic though. The recording was done he always assured me that I could re-record to my hearts content If I was dissatisfied with something and always adhered to my requests (I had a ton). The thing is, Terrence is really professional and knows his stuff. He tweaked every minor little detail and informed that for him to truly master a track it can 2 days (which I believed as I saw how my track became smoother and smoother with each change he made). I was glad I was not dealing with an amateur/starting up producer. So in summary, I definitely recommend him. Pros: Professional service, Courteous, Listens to your requests, Extremely affordable. Cons: Studio tends to get extremely hot at times, but just ask him to turn on the AC and you're good to go. He sells beats too.
