This was my first time hiring a professional photographer and it was a great experience! He responded quickly, I told him what I was looking for and we set our photo session. I originally just needed a few shots and I walked out with more and better ones for my website. Nice studio, fun colleagues who helped out and great shots Dov! Would come back again in the future.
I have used Brian for lessons in using Logic Pro, and also as an on-site recording engineer. I recorded a big band style piece with Brian on very short notice, and Brian helped convert a temporary space into a great room for recording, and he was very organized and thoughtful in how he organized all of the files and work products. He is knowledgeable both musically and technically, which is a huge asset.
I am writing on behalf of my operatic comedy group Forte Chicago. White Fox Cinema recorded two of our full-length, live shows, The Sausage Show & Other Bites in May 2016 and Winter Whisper in February 2017. They were extremely easy to work with and were always prompt and courteous in their communication before and after the performances as well as in their arrival at the venues. They provided a high quality video recording that captured the wide array of spectacle and color we use in our shows as well as our operatic sounds in these small venues. We loved how they were able to capture several angles and seamlessly tie them together in an awesome video edit. I have nothing but good things to say about these guys and would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a timely, professional, and high-quality product!
Working with Sean was great! We have used him for both recording and mastering. He makes everything sound huge without getting muddled, definitely a rarity. Prices are super reasonable as well. I'll definitely go with Sean for future projects.
My name is Brandon Fury aka Super Ego of the Milwaukee hip hop supergroup known as the Boombox Saintz. Mike Wenz did mixing and mastering for an 8 track EP, our debut project and I wanted it to be perfect. I was referred to Wenz by a mutual friend. Right off the bat, he was very transparent about costs and gave me a ballpark estimate of the amount of time it would take. Very professional and courteous during the process and patient with my perfectionism. I was very happy with the final result, the sound was superb and I received countless compliments on the quality of the project. He also sent me digital wave versions of every track, labeled correctly along with CLEAN versions. It was above and beyond and much more than I could've asked for. Will definitely be going through him for future projects.
Jake studied at columbia and has an audio engineering degree. He knows his shit! Hes put together a super professional home studio, takes care of his gear (awesome gear), and handles his projects like a pro. Ive worked in a recording studio and jake runs the entire operation with the same attention to detail.
Jason was kind enough to record and mix a single for my punk rock band Played Out free of charge. He's a talented engineer who is very easy to work with and works with you to realize the sound you want.
Steve was very patient and intuitive during the recording process. In addition creative enough where I definitely valued his subtle input on various performances and other creative ideas when recording. Not overbearing but intuitive where he felt like a direct part of the process. On the sound engineering side, he also seemed to be very knowledgable on the technical side but able to apply it all in the practical funky sense making for a rewarding sonic experience.

Ape Trax has been working with Chicagoland musicians for over 8 years. We foster a creative atmosphere to get the best performances out of you, the artist, because great records start at the source. We encourage experimentation and will strive with you to create a unique piece of music that will stand apart from cookie-cutter recordings.
we have been in the recording business for over 30 years. We have produced great audio for many major clients. We specialize in music, voiceover, and commercials, and we are conveniently located in downtown Chicago.
I care about what I'm recording. So many engineers these days just care about the money. If a client comes in, I want them to walk out with a sense that I know what they want, and that they can trust me. My work is different from others because I spend so much time working on mixes.
