Reviews for Upper West Side audio editors

Drew Rose is a monster at audio editing! I had two voiceover projects 1) VO of an Admiral Star Command (videogame) ) and a short audiobook. He accomplished both jobs speedily and accurately. I told Drew exactly what I wanted to do and he executed my requests perfectly. I am very satisfied and I would use Drew again in the future.

Working with Mike on my four song demo was an absolute dream. He was willing to work within my budget and despite the recording/editing/mixing processes taking longer than we had originally planned (by no fault of Mike), he made sure the music came out to my satisfaction. He even provided me an awesome drummer, Aleks, when the drummer I was going to use dropped out of the project. Mike is also extremely knowledgeable about sound and music, a great teacher (I learned more from him in two weeks than I learned in over 3 years of playing music) and an honest & decent dude. I HIGHLY recommend him to anyone looking to make professional-sounding audio recordings.
