Client List and Testimonials

"I had an amazing time at Sound Extractor.  I had some very interesting demands for the production of my record and they were able to accommodate ALL of them.  Stew is widely knowledgeable about many different techniques and instruments to achieve very particular sounds and also provides a very comfortable, creative work environment.  The level of dedication to the project I found at Sound Extractor is second to none.  I will be going back for my next project!"

"Stew Kirkwood and his talented staff are song obstetricians. They take those sonic twinkles-in-your-eye and deliver them to healthy fruition. Sound Extractor has been, and will be again our studio of choice for our future projects!"

"I made more than just a phenomenal record at Sound Extractor.  I carved and created my own sound through the trust, guidance, and talent of there exceptional staff.  Aside from the genre of music you create, this studio has a lab grade arsenal of vintage and modern gear at their finger tips.  Their environment is riddled with original artwork and designs that are the most relaxing and inspiring to any artist. This facility is the mother ship of audio creation in my mind."

"Sound Extractor is part studio, part living room, part laboratory, part bar, and part refuge. The best part though, is that when you find it doesn't have something, Stew usually makes it show up the next day."

"I had a fabulous time working with Stew at Sound Extractor. There’s something magical about working in such an amazing studio with such a talented team of people. I highly recommend working with Stew for many reasons; you’ll walk away with a great product, learn a lot, share the experience with your band mates and probably have laughed a lot, as Stew is a genuinely funny guy and a truly caring individual. Thanks Stew, we'll see you again soon."

"Working with Stew was a very positive experience from pre-production through to final mixing. Stew really reached out to us on a personal level, he understood our creative goals, and worked tirelessly to help us make an album that we are very proud of. The atmosphere at Sound Extractor was very much what we were looking for, being relaxed and comfortable, yet professional and efficient, which promoted creativity while giving us great value for our money. The access to a large selection of instruments and recording equipment, coupled with Stew's proficiency, really enhanced the overall quality of the album."

"Quality craftsmanship requires four elements; knowledge, experience, professional tools, and an environment conducive to creativity.  Sound Extractor embodies all four of these elements.  That's what keeps me coming back."

"Sound Extractor had everything we needed to make an amazing sounding record. There was a fantastic collection of mics, preamps, and compressors and really incredible acoustic spaces to work with. Stew and all the staff are extremely accommodating and they make it easy and enjoyable to get music on tape. Sound Extractor rocks!"

"Sound Extractor, what can I say? Stew Kirkwood has built and realized a studio that meets the needs of pretty much any musician. The studio itself is comfortable, professional, and aesthetically easy to create in. Stew and Brad have the natural ability to make you feel relaxed and to pull the best performance out of you. My experience recording a CD at Sound Extractor was fun, enjoyable and relaxed. The end result was better than I could have hoped for. The cost compared to all it has to offer in equipment and musical talent and experience does not compare. I recommend it to anyone who is looking to record. I look forward to the next project."
