Soundtek Recording Studios – Testimonials & Review
It is one thing for us to write about our musical experience and technical capabilities, and all that Soundtek San Jose Recording Studio has to offer. However, we believe the real testament is what our Clients have to say about us.
“Most recording studios you go to you get an engineer or you get equipment, but you don’t get the combination of experience of world class stuff – got ProTools HD system here – but you also get an incredible engineer and producer. A guy, Robert Berry, I worked with him for years. I’ve done tons of album with him. Been a lot of challenging musical situations with him. He knows every genre you can think of. He plays every instrument seems like out there. He can take your project for point A to point Z and get it done. It’s really a world class situation. I highly recommend Soundtek Studios for whatever you’re producing, whatever genre. Come in get it done. It’s gonna be great.”

“My songs are priceless to me. I only work with the very best. Working with Robert Berry at Soundtek Studios assures me at my albums are going to turn out exactly the way I want them to. One of my favorite things about working with Robert is his ability to really get the detail of the vibe you’re trying to portray in each of your songs. He’s a phenomenal musician as well. Whatever you need him to play, he can play it. When you walk out of there you’ve got a quality product that you’re so proud of it makes your next step, promotion, so much easier. I can guarantee you this, I’ll be doing my next album with Robert Berry at Soundtek Studios. Do yourself a favor and check it out. You won’t be sorry.”

“The first time I came to Soundtek Studios to do my first song with RB I was very, very nervous. But by the end of the day the song turned out absolutely stunningly beautiful because Robert has this gift. He can read the artist’s mind. He can make the song turn out exactly the way the artist wants it to turn out. This partnership with Robert and myself has been an absolute success because, we have done a variety of different styles, different genres of songs and each and every one of them turned out even better that I could have imagined them. I am extremely grateful to his talent, his gift, the genius of Robert Berry. So what can I say, he is the maestro. The angel of music. Thank you, Robert.”
“One of the reasons I went to Soundtek Studios is because all of the recording engineers are also professional musicians, and they’ve been playing music a lot of years. So they understand the instrumentation and the recording sides of the issues. So it’s really quite easy for an independent artist like me to make a really good, quality album at Soundtek Studios.”
“I recorded my album at Soundtek Studios. My album is ‘Nine Lives’ and it was a great experience. If you’re looking to record an album or make music, or anything, this is the best place to go. Soundtek Studios is amazing and Robert is the best.”
“I am from England. I first heard of Robert through a friend of mine. He told me he’d really be able to help me to create music for the lyrics I had. But me being here and him in California, I just had no idea how that would happen. But anyway, a few months later we now have a whole album worth of songs that I am just so proud of. And more amazingly that we have been able to create just by communicating through email. So we’ve never met, and I can’t really say a huge amount about the studio itself right now. But what I can say is how great and supportive Robert has been through the process. And how, with his talent and experience, he has really opened my mind to the possibilities of each song. And yet really been able to capture the essence of what’s important to me and who I am. So now we have all of these songs I’m so proud of and so excited about. I really can’t wait to record them at Soundtek Studios.”
Anna traveled to Soundtek San Jose Studios from her home in England to do record her first album. I wrote her songs with her long distance then she flew in to do the albums recording.
“…I was completely amazed by how much we had done. We basically completed the songs in that first session. Robert was able to lay down all the tracks and to come up with a mysterious, cool feel. Exactly what I was looking for to convey the message. I was completely blown away by his ability to work so fast and to make all the parts fit so perfectly together. After that day I scheduled a session and worked on another song that was pretty hard to make everything fit and he did it again. I was really, really thrilled with the magic of working with him.
So after that, I decided to bring all of my songs to Robert for mixing and to basically complete my CD with him. Robert is not only a tech wiz, super engineer, he is also a fabulous musician on every instrument and he’s got that really great feel that allows him to understand what the person is looking for and he has a really, really sharp ear. I was very thrilled to have had the opportunity to work with Robert and I look to bring him my new material.”
“When I met Robert I was very impressed with his professionalism and how he was able to record my song for me so quickly. He was 100% focused on the music. I was able to walk out of my first recording session with my completed song in my hand and be listening to that in the car on the way home. I was just blown away by how quickly it came together and by the quality. The sound was just beyond my expectations…
The biggest concern that I had was my vocals. I didn’t have any confidence in myself as a singer at all. Robert put me in touch with Thom Duell. He is the vocal producer a Soundtek Studios. I’ve been working with Thom and all the songs and he is amazing at what he does. He’s just able to portray my voice in the best light possible. I am so grateful for his coaching with my voice because I’ve really come a long way since I’ve been working with Thom. So that really good news, because now what I have is something that I can be proud to present to anybody who might be interested in hearing my music. I’ve been able to put up on the internet, at different sites, and I’ve been getting a really positive response back from people. Since I’ve working with Robert and Thom, I went from being a songwriter who was sort of singing and writing songs in the closet or in the shower, to being an artist with a career that I can represent myself as a serious recording artist. And, I’m very happy about that, because I had given up and now I realize that I don’t have to give up on my dream. It’s really thanks to Robert Berry and Soundtek Studios that I’ve been able to accomplish this dream come true of mine. I just want to say, thank you so much!”
“Recording our first album, ‘Holiday on Earth’ was a lot of fun and much of the final result was due to Robert’s efforts. Our second album, entitled D2 is a collaboration with my son Alex. Robert worked well with both of us on songs we had co-written, but more impressive was the way he worked with Alex who only started playing music a few years ago. It’s really amazing to watch a seasoned veteran and young musician create such outstanding music. Quite a few of the songs on this album were composed right before the studio sessions and were very rough. He made tremendous contributions to these songs. He suggested integrating sounds from various old and new artists, as well as his own ideas. Robert is like a magical musical encyclopedia of information and talent. Robert is not only my musical mentor but warm, fun loving, mischievous, inviting personality full of talent and invention. We now have two albums to our credit because of Robert and are currently working on a third album, 3D with him.”
“Robert has a great personality and he’s fun to work with. He truly made my song beyond my expectations and inspired me by his talents. He could pretty much play any instrument you ask him to. I guarantee you that I will come back and record my other songs. And I recommend you do the same. You won’t regret it. Come to Soundtek Studios”
