Reviews for Pleasanton recording studio professionals
Thumbtack Customer
David is a good guy with a deep and rich understanding of the music industry. He has his way of doing things and accommodates for your needs. However being a producer, he was unable to give me the stems (split tracks of a song), which is what I needed without demanding a premium price. I was naturally disappointed but understood the difficulties in his workflow. Still, I bounce questions of David from time to time about audio production and engineering. He is responsive and gives me honest advice. Despite the difficulties I encountered with Shine On Studios, I would still recommend my future clients to record with him in his studio but I will also be giving a word of caution to all my producer friends, who work with stems like I do.
