"I am using the services of James Guffey as a sound engineer as well as a digital design instructor. He is superlative at both. His knowledge of mixing is very special in that he really brings out what is best in a musical composition whether it be a song, or an orchestrated work. James captures the essence of what a client is looking for in a mix and does so with real success. In addition, James has been teaching me the fundaments of Pro Tools as well as varied mixing techniques. I have nothing but real praise for his teaching skills. He presents the information we go over in a very understandable fashion and always wants to make sure that the material is understood before moving on to other techniques. I've learned so much in the many months James and I have worked together. I highly recommend him to anyone who wishes to learn more about digital sound design." - Lucinda
