We love recording with Ben! He is patient, reliable, helpful, and very fast! Ben consistently performs with excellence on the board – recording, editing and mixing for Voiceworx for many years. With his musical background, he has an uncanny ability to choose appropriate music and SFX for performer demos and has made our work in the studio a true pleasure. We look forward to working with Ben again!

I got the chance to work with Ben on Assassin’s Creed: Origins. When recording VO for a AAA game the sound technician needs to be both quck and adaptable. Benjamin was this and more which made the recording of dialogue for our game a sooth and efficient process. Till this day I don’t hesitate to recommend working with Benjamin to anyone.

At our agency, we so much prefer working with Ben that when he moved from one audio studio to another; for part of our business, we followed. Ben’s contributions to our work cannot be understated. While he brings a great deal of skill behind the board, it is his musicality and ‘ears’ that set him apart.
As a VO director, I have come to rely on his opinion and his appreciation of subtly and nuance. Of the numerous engineers I have worked with, his talents and disciplined approach place him at the top of that list.

I have worked in commercial and music recording studios for many years with many sound engineers. The importance of an engineer is to make sure all the recording equipment, talent and producer are confident with the engineer and the results. Ben is not only a pro, but my clients have requested him to be on my sessions and many others. He is professional and dedicated to his craft.
