Apex mic upgrade

So far so Good, what you showed me has really helped me improve my skills on pro tools. I fell like the program is a lot more effective and a little less intimidating. Once I have it all locked in my head I would love to learn some more!

Your VO work is very impressive. I also had to mention that your website is awesome! Very flashy but still very simple. I love the animated tabs when hovering over them. Oh and I can't help to say that your studio is beautiful.
