    Manuel was very friendly and professional. He worked really hard into getting the right tones and balance for my songs. In the recording process he was on top of every single detail, then in the mixing his years of expertise were vital, and finally in mastering his understanding of rock/latin/pop music made the sound be of excellent quality.
