Nobody beats Nick Vivid.

Apr 24, 2013 by Brian Jackson

Nick is quite probably the finest producer I\'ve had the pleasure of working with. He is professional and patient, and you can tell that he\'s passionate about about his craft. He\'ll work with you to find the sound you want on every single song. He\'s very technically skilled, but also has something you can\'t necessarily teach - an incredibly keen ear, and a sense of what things should sound like it. We recorded our last EP with Nick, and we\'re looking forward to working with him again!

Simply The Best

Apr 24, 2013 by Lyz Manikas

Clever, enthusiastic, attention to detail and forthcoming are a few of the immediate words that come to mind when the name Nick Vivid is mentioned.

I have worked with Nick since 2010 and was super psyched to hear that he opened his own studio!

If you are looking for the best at the best price look no further you have found it!!!

Great Experience

Apr 22, 2013 by Dave Harrison

Nick is the best at listening to bands and really helping them nail the sound that they are looking for. He never rushes you, and it is rare to find an engineer/producer who is more of a perfectionist than you are about your songs. Overall, an awesome experience, and well worth it to work with Nick.

-Dave Harrison, The Mess Around

Nick has a great little recording studio and set up, great rates and incredible know how go along way. Always pleased with the work Nick does and he\'s great for gear repair as well!

Great job on our 7"

Nick was awesome throughout the whole recording process. He helped us out when we were stuck and pushed us to make the 7" better. He's also very flexible and works tirelessly to get the best.

Recording with Nick Vivid was the best move my group could have made. He has a holistic approach to the recording process that gave every instrument a voice and every track it's own stamp on the EP he helped us create. His technical know-how, patience, and musical intuition made it a great experience.

Nick Vivid is a professional, plain and simple. He knows what sounds good, and he actually knows how to use all those fucking knobs and switches. The man has infinite patience and a golden ear.

Recording at Nick Vivid's was nothing less than an excellent experience! The atmosphere is laid back yet full on professional. As an engineer, Nick's command of the studio's KILLER gear is astonishing. And since he himself is a rock god, his input on producing and song structure is always enlightening and helpful.

His pricing method of paying per song, and not by the hour is key to maximizing the creative process. There's no clock watching shenanigans to deal with here! Also, on a side note, the L.E.S. location can't be beat!

Great to work with

Nick's great to work with, especially because he's a musician. He thoroughly understands the demands of players, and delivers on it quickly and efficiently.
