“I’m knocked out with the sound you achieve, right away! It’s very rare. I’ve done most of my recording in NYC with a few of the heavy engineers…but it never sounds this good right out of the box. Thanks for your ears and your artistry!”

Chuck Redd
Vibist, Drumer & Percussionist

“Rob not only listens incredibly well to the music, but more importantly , he listens to the artist with the same exacting attention to detail.  I have worked on many projects with Rob with different groups in a multitudes of styles, and in all cases he is the consummate professional.  Great ears, amazingly patient, a stickler for details, and an excellent sense of humor.”

John Toomey

“You don’t record, mix or master at the same studio over the course of 14 recordings if the engineering wasn’t exceptional. Rob Ulsh is one of the best in the business. I’ll be seeing him again soon I’m sure. “
