As a freelance composter/arranger I’ve had the opportunity to work with Blaine in the studio on many occasions. No matter what the medium – film scores, television production music, radio and television jingles, or a record album – Blaine has always had the knowledge and the “ears” to adapt to the style.
The most appealing quality to a producer is Blaine’s ability to decipher my comments and make it happen through the board.
I’m sorry that Blaine will be leaving the area, but he’ll bring a wealth of studio know-how and professionalism wherever he goes.

George Schaefer Recommendation
I had a very pleasant experience of working with Mr. Blaine Stewart when I produced and directed three dramatic shows under the general title, THE BOOTH, at the Osmond Studios in Orem, Utah. Blaine Stewart was the audio engineer when we recorded the programs and also served as the mixer when we laid back the sound after finishing the on-line editing. He is absolutely first-rate in both departments and I recommend him highly.
Michael L. Mannes Recommendation
It gives me great personal and professional pleasure to recommend Blaine Stewart, Audio Engineer Extraordinaire.
I have been working with Blaine at Osmond Studios and Summit International Studios for the past six years. In that period of time, Blaine has recorded original sound and post-sweetened over 200 commercials for me. He is a consummate artist, as well as being one of the finest technical experts I have run across anywhere in the country. His contribution to my productions greatly enhances the overall impact of the work. Blaine is one of the few people I’ve worked with, in my 21 years in this industry, that I allow to work in an unattended session; I trust his skill implicitly.
I truly believe that Blaine would make a most positive addition to anybody’s Audio Department. He has my highest professional respect and I recommend him without any reservations.

Stephen Bowlby Recommendation
As the Post Production Producer of IMS, it’s been my pleasure to enjoy a working relationship with Blaine Stewart, Director of Audio Operations for Summit International Studios (Osmond Studios) in Utah.
For the past four years, we have established new standards for audio in commercials and films with Blaine’s expertise. He’s worked with us on projects ranging from audio sweetening in post-production, to location sound recording, and multitrack work.
Since I’ve had the opportunity to work in many facilities on both coasts, I have ready sources of comparison among audio people. Blaine takes a back seat to no one. His ear and his work are truly national quality in all respects.
He is also a person who is pleasant to work with, which is sometimes a rarity in our industry. To combine excellent work with being easy to get along with goes a long way toward wanting to keep a relationship going.
Blaine has definitely been one of the reasons our company has had a relationship with Summit since it first opened. You can count on him to contribute to your company’s reputation, bottom line and good will.

“Thanks again for the excellent job you did for the Oakridge Boys Special. I watched it at home last night on a good sound system, and I thought it was really good. The term “fix it in post” really worked for this one! I hope we can do another one again. I really enjoyed working with you. You have a great, experienced, musical ear, and your work ethic is to be commended.”
“We’re getting some incredible sound out of here. . . You know, your stage is great. Just beautiful. . .everything!”
