TESTIMONIALS & REVIEWS

"Angel is a true wizard visionary ~ She always stayed in touch with new draft updates & the final product is unsurprisingly beautiful - She puts the utmost effort & care into everything she does!"

"Angel is the audio engineer equivalent of a fine art conservator. Her treatment of an artist's work is done with the utmost judgement and taste. From the perspective of the artist, her mastering work is the difference between a dirty and damaged canvas containing a painting obscured by grime, and a clear, crisp, and fidelitous image which exists in the full range of color and texture that the artist envisioned. However, from the perspective of the listener, none of her work is salient, and thus does not obstruct or distract from the artist's communication of their vision. What exists instead is a more successfully realized version of the ideal piece."

"I approached Angel to mix a long-running project that I was fatigued on. Literally couldn't hear it anymore. After a speedy turnaround, not only could I hear it again, but suddenly I could feel it and smell it. Points and lines became edges and surfaces, giving fidelity to noise in a 3d space. I plan to send all future recordings their way for, at least, mastering work."

"These sound great! You really carved out the space & dimension for each part to shine. I'm very happy with the results."

 

-Matthew Austin, Cordite Tracker, Lord Of Overstock

- - -

"Angel’s vast understanding of music and recording pared with their kind personality and quick well explained response emails makes her my top choice when deciding who to work with for mastering my musical works. Would recommend and will work with again in the future!"

"Reaching out to Angel Marcloid A/V was one of the best decisions I made while working on my first project as a solo artist. Angel mixed and mastered my album and made it sound so professional without sacrificing any of the lo-fi feel I was going for. She's incredibly easy to work with, very responsive, and always explained the process to me so I was in the loop about what was being done to my music. She offered suggestions and advice but was never pushy or condescending and my album is better because of her hard work and expertise. It's clear how much she cares about making the music sound its best and giving her clients the sound they're looking for. I cannot recommend Angel highly enough!"

 

-Shannon Candy, Strawberry Jacuzi

"You're the best. I can really hear the parts better. Everything is all nice and spread out. My mixes tend to be all smushed together. Thank you so much for making the vocals sit better."

 

-Matthew Weaver, Wiggly, Mechanical Facade

- - -

"I love Angel's work! It's beautiful. I love the sculpting. She masters artistically."

"Working with Angel to master my EP was a great experience from start to finish. She was responsive, professional, and highly skilled and knowledgeable, not to mention very pleasant! I'm not exceptionally well versed in the more technical side of music production, but she was patient and informative, and clear in her requirements. She immediately put me at ease and I knew straight away that I was leaving my project in the right hands.
 

The end result far exceeded my expectations - she brought out richness, tone and subtlety that I didn't even know existed in my own music. Thanks to Angel, I now have something that I can feel confident in bringing forward as a finished product. She's helped me see the value in my own work, and I would absolutely recommend her to anyone requiring her services."

"Angel perfectly took everything and enhanced it and made it the perfect version of the song. If I could wave a magic wand and make my perfect ideal vision for that song, it would be blown out of the water by hers."

 

-Jake Stevenson, Bass Bandito

"Based on existing vinyl mastering work I’ve heard of Angel's, I've decided I will be bringing my own future vinyl mastering jobs to her, and recommending her to anyone who asks."

 

-Tim Thornton, Suite 309, Tiger Village, CDX, Gotta Groove Record Pressing

- - -

"These vinyl masters sound so good on the test pressings. Damn! I don't think I've been this impressed with a vinyl sound yet."

 

-Dennis Mikula, Geometric Lullaby, Ghost Bath

- - -

"Ahhhhh! This remix is amazing! Thank you so much for the hard work you put into this. I can tell you had fun going crazy with the drums and noise; I had a huge grin on my face when the glitched-to-hell drums came in. Utter insanity...I love it!"

 

-Marshal Arnold, Self-Reflecting Pattern

"It's super cool how you kept a lot of the original sounds intact/familiar but used them in completely different ways, like how you used the one-off synth sounds as percussion (small detail I know, but I really appreciated it!!), and how you layered the synth melody is gorgeous. The slight pitch bend you put on the guitar chords sounds soooo good, and the kicks sound punchy as hell!

The way the track progresses is stellar, really enjoy how you give the guitar time to shine in the middle, just a nice breather after how chaotic it was in the first part. The buildup after that just makes the vox lead you added near the end even more beautiful and moving. Such an incredible take on the track, I don't have enough nice things to say about it!  On my 3rd listen in a row already, so much to take in."

"I worked with Angel on my latest album from both a mixing and mastering perspective. I recently had the pleasure of listening to ‘Fire-Toolz’ and I was absolutely amazed by her artistry and skills. Angel gave me more than just help with my album, she showed me the details and perspectives I need to be able to apply to any work going forward. I was blown away by the depth of her review and analysis of my work. Her observation and thoroughness were exactly what I needed to take my album to the next level.

"Additionally, she was very up front about telling me how much time/money each item I requested would take and negotiated with me so I wouldn’t be spending copious amounts of time and money.  Her judgement in both the transaction and the services rendered are a mark of a true professional. It was my pleasure to work with and learn from Angel Marcloid. I will be using her in the future for any mixing and mastering needs!"

"Angel killed it with this master and I will be singing her praises to future potential clients. She really did a nice job. I can’t think of anything I’d change. Some of the songs I was not thinking much about anymore have a whole new life. I hear hear all sorts of stuff the more I listen and the more I compare it with other music I love. I’m convinced she nailed it."

 

-Mike Meegan, RXM Reality

"I gave Angel a dusty old mix and she polished it til it shimmered and gleamed like new. I never thought that mix could sound that good, but she did it in one pass."

 

-Izaak Thompson, Birdlabs

- - -

"You took these songs out of the muddy puddle they were bathing in and gave them the shine they deserve. Everything I love about these tracks in the first place is given a nice stage presence."

 

-Vincent Rouault, Takeninake Records

"Angel mastered my album, a collision of happy accidents, and turned it into a truly professional sounding work, I'm beyond thrilled with the end product!!!"

 

-Sam Gas Can

"I'm very impressed. I mean, it still sounds like what I put together, but there is just this clarity there that wasn't before. I tend to mix things as one big mess sometimes, and this experience kinda opened my ear to what I can do in terms of separation and elements and all that. WHAT'S YOUR SECRET!?!?!"

"I had high expectations, and Angel exceeded them. Highly recommended!"

 

-Brad Hebert, Ergal Thema

"Angel Marcloid A/V offers excellent mastering work at affordable rates as well as the assurance that a thoughtful engineer with a great ear is at work. Great turnaround time, too. I would highly recommend her services for anyone, but especially for those artists working in a more experimental mode."

"In March of 2019, we needed to find a new video post-production person as our previous volunteer, who had been doing it for 9 years, was ready to retire. Before we even had the chance to put the word out, Angel contacted us and offered her services. That’s pretty remarkable, since no one else had made such an offer during the previous nine years. That, to me, indicates Angel’s deep attunement to the “field of intelligence” which is the central theme of BatGap and most spiritual traditions.

From the outset, working with Angel has been easy and enjoyable. She understands what we want and accomplishes it quickly. When she first started, within minutes, she solved a technical problem that had been stumping us for a couple of years, and in doing so significantly improved the audio quality of our videos. I quickly learned to trust her with editorial decisions. Angel has high quality standards and is diligent in meeting them.

I’ve really enjoyed getting to know Angel, and I look forward to a long and productive relationship.

"Angel did exceptional work on my album, playing drums on select tracks as well as mastering the whole project.  Her drum skills are outstanding and it's clear that she has the experience, chops, ears, and intuition to adapt to playing a wide variety of genres.  I gave her some demos of my songs featuring drum guides in the form of MIDI drum tracks and Angel was able to expand upon these ideas and bring them to life while retaining the original intent of my vision.  She plays LOUD and hits HARD!  Just the kind of player I was looking for!"

 

-Davey Hart, The Christmas Bride, Wishgift

"Angel is incredibly easy to work with, attentive to detail, works hard to make sure that you're getting exactly what you want... AND QUICKLY. 10/10 recommended."

"I am absolutely blown away!! A two hour drive home, and your remix was on heavy rotation through almost all of it."

"I've done a couple preliminary listens and this feels like the difference between VHS and a theater screening!! I can already hear the depth of field you've applied to everything! This gave me rocket fuel for my performance last night!  Exclamation points!! I'm so excited! It sounds like you really understood this album. I kept saying that out loud during the first listen. Your gloss and shine was what made me want to work with you on this because of the way you bring clarity to chaotic calamity. Although my chaos is different, you were able to do extract the grit and glam like tragedy masks, widening the breadth of the emotional foundation. HOLY MOLY. Thanks for making my sappy album sound so BIG. As I said, I couldn't really hear it anymore after working on it for so long. It's wonderful. THAAAANKS"

-Andy Loebs, Space Heater

- - -

"She made the album sound incredible. I thought some of the high end was real abrasive but she softened it up perfectly. She really brought it to life. I will be coming to her with every release from now on and I'll be sure to spread the word."

 

-Chris Bright, Korean Jade, Gloga

"Angel is one of the very few people I’m not only happy to pay, but completely trust with my music!"

 

-Paul Maitre, Otherm, Holloway Tapes, Harmony Index

-Daniel Euphrat, Timmy Sells His Soul, 918


- - -

"Angel delivers extremely clear, pristine masters and, what’s probably even more important, helps your songs achieve the potential you always saw in them. She is fully engaged with your tracks at every step of the process and is, on top of that, very easy to work with. I highly recommend her and will be using her services again in the future."

 

-Wiktor Szotowski, Buddhist Bubblegum

"I highly recommend Angel for mastering your sound!!! Angel has mastered 2 records of mine so far. Unbelievable how sounds that I thought were too buried to be heard are now given enough room to be heard and felt. 5/5. Looking forward to working with Angel again!!"
