As always, the files are pristine and sound great! This was my fourth session with Ayran - I just want to say that not only has he handled everything I've sent him flawlessly from a technical perspective, but he also has a great feel for the emotional flow of a song. He knows when to lean into the part and when to pull back, and that adds so much depth to the recording! Thanks as always!

Ayran did exactly what I was hoping for; a lot of feeling, great intonation and a lot of very useful takes, with a close and room mic!

I used Ayran as a violinist he is exceptional. The recording engineer is great as well. Excellent guys to work with. But why would you use Rode mics? Very poor quality mics. I know this because I suffer when trying to get the recording to sit nicely in the mix. I would prefer ribbon mics be used for violin. Either Coles, AEA R84 or other ribbon mics. Rode mics in my opinion are a low quality mic for professional service. I am not sure I can continue using Ayran because of the quality of the mics, which is a shame.

Ayran's playing is so good, I really like the detail in the recording quality as well. He was able to record many options that allow me to dial things in the way I want. It was a great experience!

I scored you so highly because both Ayran and Joe raised my music up to another level & of course also João with the score help. Ayrans violin & Joes cello sounded like a meadow that follows the wind...so I cried a bit to be honest 😊 thank you so much for your fantastic musicians 🙏🎶 you are best.

Ayran had a audio engineer helping him out with the flow of the session and probably also with mic placement, with a hint of ambience which I like, and makes it easier to integrate with reverb later etc. I can see in the naming of the files that its was recording with a RØDE NT2, which is not the most expensive mic, but thats not the most important part anyway. A good professional recording quality/setup overall.

Ayran's files always sound great! He records from two mic positions, which is also really useful. Today we built chords out of three violin lines and they sounded perfect together! Thanks so much!
