"Dallas created a CAL file for Sonar for me that does exactly what I want it to do, which is to apply contrary motion to melodic lines. He obviously knows exactly what he is doing in regard to programming computers for musical applications. "

--- Jerry Gerber, film & game composer, author of  "The Art of MIDI Sequencing":

"...I just listened to your masters and they KICK ASS. I'm so thrilled with this I can't even begin to express my real, heartfelt gratitude. As good as I expected things to sound... you've gone several steps further and found the real heart of these pieces."

--- David Harper, songwriter/producer & Nashville recording artist:

"You were thanking me for my patience. It should be me thanking you for yours. And for your willingness to help out. It's a great mix. That is absolutely awesome! It's perfect."

--- Chris Lonsberry, singer/songwriter/guitarist & TAXI recording artist:

"Hey, not patting myself on the back here - but the song rocks and your mix slays - I mean it's really shining now!!! I'm so happy!"

--- Ben Djeghdir, progressive instrumental guitarist / songwriter
