Some of the Artists that Raz has worked with in his Los Angeles Recording Studio
Work with Raz in his Los Angeles Recording Studio
Raz has worked with many artists in a large variety of genres in his Los Angeles based Recording Studio. Read some his many 5 star reviews on Yelp to get a feel for how people enjoy working with him.
Sent Raz some of my latest songs I've been working on with another producer , Raz recorded some guitars and sent us some amazing production ideas - some cool synths lines and pads that totally changed the song vibe (for the better). It was actually really really cool and it blew my mind because of the creativity.
His ideas and recording actually made my day (and my tracks) improved it QUITE a bit.
After recording we sent Raz the final vocals for "improvements', and again we got a neutral result that totally blew us away, you can barely hear the corrections, but you could definitly hear that the vocals were on point. I would definitely go back to Raz if I ever need someone to review my music and even some advice on how to make my music and such better. The quality of my music really improved quite a lot and it just simply sounds better all round. I learned a few tips and tricks by listening to the songs myself. One of my greatest experiences I've ever had!
A friend told me about Raz's mixes and about how great and cheap his work is, I mixed 5 songs with him (RnB Hip Hop)
Was really satisfied with the end result, Raz actually mastered the songs as part of the mixes making them big, with a massive low end , while still open sounding and loud.
I would definitely recommend Raz here, and to my friends, the job he did for me would cost me X3 in another place
Also, Raz made me a few versions of each track, (different color and balance), something you don't usually get from mixing engineers.
Raz Klinghoffer is a professional music producer who knows what he is doing. He is also one of those rare people that will listen to your opinions and take them into consideration instead of ignoring them. Of course he will also interject his ideas to the music adding an additional level of complexity and "flavor" that you had an idea of in your head and he was able to extract. He helped me record my piano piece and really taught me a lot while working with it. He is worth every penny I paid and then some!
Got Raz's phone number from a friend, after I heard some work she'd done with him that I really liked. I brought one of my songs to him, which I felt was pretty good, but with his creative ingenuity, it really took what I had to the next level. It's pretty impressive what can be done with the right production and sound. My music style is Pop, and I was looking to create some beats that were really catchy, he changed some of the hooks and structure, added some modern electronics--Voila! A song you just want to keep on repeat!
Thank you for using your talents!
Raz's biggest advantage is that he is straight to the point, and that he is honest. He will never tell you stories or waste your time, he is here to work, and not to talk, and he delivers on time.
Came from Irvine in the last few months and it was worth the trip because at the end of the day it's my music and I need someone I know I can trust.
