Testimonials

  • It was awesome working with Justin. A true professional who cares about all that nerdy audio stuff to make sure every artist sounds GREAT. Max Kerman (Arkells)
  • We were thrilled when we found out Justin would be up-mixing our tracks to Dolby ATMOS. His fine attention to detail and talent made our music come alive in the immersive audio world! The Command Sisters
  • Justin’s commitment to the art of Atmos music mixing is incredible. It is rare enough to find someone with his technical know-how; someone who knows how to mix in immersive formats properly. More than his unrivaled technical base, Justin possesses what is so rare in any new artistic form: artistry. He understands when the bells and whistles of immersive audio support the music, and when they don’t. For Justin, it’s always about the music, and immersive technology is in service of that. I’ve not met another immersive engineer like him in that regard. Jonathan Kawchuk
