"Les gets it right, and he can do it quickly, no small gift given the kind of deadlines we often face. Les Brockmann is a real pro!" —Gordon Goodwin, Grammy Winning composer, leader of the Big Phat Band

"Working with Les has really put back the fun in mixing for me. Now at the end of a hectic and exhausting schedule of writing, working through the collaboration with the filmmakers, and recording my score, I can catch my breath, knowing that he will insure I get the best mix possible." —Miriam Cutler, film score composer

"His deft touch, helpful suggestions and sensitivity to client needs make Les Brockmann a pleasure to work with. My project had very specific needs and he delivered exactly what was required: artful sonics, timeliness and a deference to the budget." —Joel Evans, composer, CEO Cinemasters

"Behind the board for me at commercial or personal studios, editing from multiple studio sources to create a seamless whole, or overdubbing at the last minute, Les has always come through with a great product. He's the consummate professional, and fun to work with." —Bevan Manson, composer

"In the 10 years I've worked with Les, he's always found the best way to solve any problem. His skill as an engineer is augmented by the fact that he's an excellent musician with golden ears that don't miss a thing when tracking or mixing. And above all, Les truly cares about whatever project he's working on." —Nelson Kole, producer, composer, pianist

"Les is a master at sculpting sonic puzzlements into clear, concise, and focused musical mixes!" —Greg Edmonson, screen composer (Firefly, King of the Hill)

"Les Brockman is one of the best engineers I have worked with. When on a session, I know things will be done professionally, with speed, and most importantly that the project (and my voice) will sound great. Les is the best!!" —Amick Byram, vocalist, 2-time Grammy nominee

"Since we did not have the budget necessary to post-mix, Les mixed all 27 cues live without missing a mix. I could not have been happier." —Christopher Caliendo, screen composer (interview, Overture, A. F. of M. Local 47)

"Les Brockmann is a total pro! He's got great ears. He is reliable & hard working, shows up on time and makes my music sing!" —John Bisharat, composer

"I always receive high praise for the quality of the recordings Les has mixed and mastered for me." —Dana Kaproff, screen composer (White Rush, The Roman Empire in the First Century)

"Les's mixes are clear, clean and punchy. He's a tireless worker and, just when I'm ready to chuck my computer through the window, he calmly diagnoses and fixes my problem. If I could, I'd have him live in my studio (though his wife may have some issues with that!)." —Gordon Goodwin, composer, arranger, leader of Gordon Goodwin's Big Phat Band

"I've had the pleasure of working with Les on my projects in a variety of recording venues, from mobile recording and home project studios to state-of-the-art facilities, and I'm always impressed with his ability to 'get the job done' with great creativity and efficiency. I consider it a privilege when Les is involved on my scores." —Ed Smart, composer
