"I have worked with Charlie Kramsky many times over the last number of years at Avatar Studios in NYC. He exemplifies the new breed of young engineers - those who are equally adept with new emerging technologies and old analog traditions. He has wonderful musical instincts, excellent studio etiquette and a wonderful wry sense of humor - all valuable traits when one is dealing with creative and demanding artists! I am always impressed by Charlie's work flow, forever anticipating the engineers, producers and artists needs. He has always been an invaluable contributor on any projects we have worked on and I am certain that his talent will yield some seminal records in the years to come. I would have no hesitation in hiring or recommending Charlie."
