Testimonials—here’s what people are saying. . .

I rely on John to manage and execute the complete cast recording process of our Original Shows at American Music Theatre. He makes the process easy and efficient while producing the highest quality recording and on time product. Whether onsite at the theatre or at his studio, John provides a professional and positive working environment resulting in successful projects.

Andrea McCormick, Artistic Director, American Music Theatre

It was a pleasure working with John. It was very clear that our project was as important to him as it was to us. John’s technical expertise without exception is the best around, his attention to detail is phenomenal. John has the latest technology and is able to get the best possible sound. John was such an important part of our project, we wouldn’t want to work with anyone else. Time in the studio was light and productive. We will definitely be working with John on our next project.

John at Sound Design brought my music to the next level. He was patient, kind, and extremly knowledgeable when it came to mastering my mixes. I learned a lot from watching him work, and a lot of the success of this project is due to John. Sound Design Music Studio has everything I will ever need to make great music.

I had the pleasure of working with John on a recording of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons in 2008. John was painstaking in every phase of the project, from initial planning to editing and final mixing of the recording. He was acutely aware of what the group and I were looking for in terms of the artistic “feel” of the recording and in details of balance, sound quality and a “live” sense to the finished project. I highly recommend him!

John is a modern-day alchemist – he creates gold out of base metals. His experience, expertise and sense of aesthetics make him a fantastic creative partner. He’s a bona-fide local treasure. Thanks John, we’re grateful for your patience and excellent work.

—David Walters, The Shanklins

We began working with John back in in 2010. Three Years and Three Albums later, John’s Sound Design is still the de facto home for our band when it comes to recording. John’s recording know-how is unquestioned, whether it is mike placement or software editing. John’s studio is truly a great stress-free environment to craft a musical project!
