Richard,

I really appreciate your expertise, production sensibilities, and patience. After all, what I pay you for is your time, which is equally valuable for everyone, really. But the musical and engineering experience, lifelong education and dedication to your craft, and the positive vibe that you possess are invaluable, priceless even, because if you didn't have them I couldn't pay you to get them. I'm sure you know exactly what I am talking about. I value our friendship a lot as well, I look forward to more work with you in the future.

Richard,

     I'm not sure if you remember me or not. My name is James Roberts, or just Jimmy from Texas. I recorded a few songs at your studio last year. If you do remember me then you might remember that i worked in the gas industry, of which I'm sure you know has come to a screeching halt. Not long after I met you and had the honor of spending time in your studio, my job came to an end and I was forced to move away. I now live in Arkansas and I drive an 18 wheeler hauling logs. I'm not sure how exactly to word the things I sometimes want to say so I suppose this is just a hello and I hope you're doing well. I want you to know how much I enjoyed working with you in your studio. I was so relaxed and so at ease there and you sure know how to turn water into wine with your musical additions and mixing abilities. Anyways, I'm sure disappointed that i had to move away. I had so many projects that i wanted your help with and wanted to record them in your studio. But I suppose life has decided otherwise for me. I will always remember you and the time I was able to spend working with you there to record my songs. So much so that I'll have to force myself to even approach another studio because I just can't figure how they could ever measure up to the experience and help I received there. It's something I'll never forget and I think about it quite often. Maybe someday life will lead me back there and if so, you can bet I'll be looking you up. I want to thank you, for what may have been another day at the office for you, is a lifetime of memories for me...
 
Thanks again,
Jimmy Roberts

Richard,
    Thanks for running a good and productive session last night.
    Iím listening now to the rough mixes you burned after last nightís session. Theyíre sounding real nice. On a related note, I wanted to tell you that I appreciate your perspective and input on all the songs. That is, I like the Beatle-esque polish and sensibility you bring to the proceedings.                     <SNIP>
    This is going to be a good batch of recordings. Really good, in my estimation. Much of that is to your credit. This isnít the last time Iíll say this to you, but thanks.
    Have a great day. ... David

The whole band loves the vibe of your studio and appreciate the friendship that you have extended to us. I am so happy that you are there! Although the "equipment" is important, it's the artist behind the controls that drives the process and the results... Always friendly and comfortable.
Thanks again,

Sean Farley Hey all! Please follow this link to support and learn about a great gem in the woods for musicians of all levels and styles. This is actually my 10th studio project and they have all been done at Green Valley Recording by owner/engineer/producer/friend Richard Rupert. I have grown up in this studio, so to speak, and know there are many more out there... BUT I have become really comfortable here, and I couldn't be happier with the quality before and ESPECIALLY now! If you're thinking of recording and your looking for a comfortable, quality, and fairly priced studio contact Richard. This video, by Tyler Spooner depicts the studio's offerings and what I'm currently creating there pretty well... Sean Farley,

Lane on Bass of Ryan Pelton Band "The Difference" Green Valley is an excellent blend of Old-School Cool and high tech. Owner/operator Richard Rupert just ROCKS!! <snip>
We also want to get back to the studio to finish recording the songs for the upcoming CD. As I said before, Richard Rupert is a great engineer, and his studio is as comfortable to work in as my own living room.

Charlie Bush Richard, I have been meaning to drop you a thank you note for some time. You have done, and are doing, a fantastic job engineering this new music that I've been recording at Green Valley. Your skill and your ideas have made such a difference in the finished work, and the fact that you've really cared about my project and gone "above and beyond" is obvious to me. I've had many people say that the songs are very much on a par with major label acts. You are just doing a GREAT job my friend! And the proof is that they're playing "9-11 RIDE" on the radio!!! Unbelievable!!! Thank you so much, Charlie Bush Charlie Bush,

Ed Newman

I canít thank you enough for all of your work and expertise on my project.  Youíre the best at taking the fear out of the recording process and tuning it into an enjoyable and totally fun experience.  Itís incredible how easily you can take a flawed musician with some tunes and dreams and turn them into a polished end product. Your editing capabilities are second to none.  I can truly say Iíve had the time of my life during the process.  Your suggestions and recommendations at every turn, both technically and with bringing in other musicians helped to keep the project on track.  And the in-house background vocals canít be beat.  Thanks again to you and your lovely wife Alison for a job that exceeded my expectations!  I look forward to more projects in the future.

 PS Where can a guy go to pick up a cat?

Hi Richard,
I called and talked to Alison last night after you were already in your session.  I just have to tell you just how much I LOVE the latest mix of "I Love You This Much".  It is truly amazing and sounds like it was done in one of the top studios here in Nashville.  What a difference!!  Thank you for your time, effort, expertise, amazing ear and engineering abilities!!  I can't imagine EVER going anywhere else to record!!  It was WELL worth the trip and we got two great bonus tracks done too!!!
Thanks again, I couldn't be happier with how everything turned out!!
You're amazing!!!

Ryan Pelton Hello Richard...
You, my friend, are an invaluable asset to any musician's career.  You may never hear that - maybe you hear it all the time... regardless, it's true.
I'm on the road in Idaho, Montana, Utah... and I had a few days off... I needed to get some new material laid down so I found the best studio I could in a FIVE STATE AREA... It wasn't even close to you.
On to business...

I talked up Green Valley Recording on WQSU this past Saturday!  I even said you had a great sense of humor.  I quickly followed it up with "highly professional" because I didn't want people thinking you were just goofy....

Hi Richard,
I guess Bonnie probably told you that we listened and listened and listened to Takin' It Easy this weekend. All we could do was smile. I think it sounds great. I tried to call you a couple of times to tell you, but got your voice mail message.
I think you did an incredible job, and I wouldn't hesitate to go back to your studio for the next one.
Thanks for everything you put into this project. I couldn't have ask for any better.
Keep a song in your heart,
EG
I was telling the truth about you showing me that recording could be fun.  Before Green Valley,  I had started dreading going into the studio to record.  I have never felt completely at ease and free to try things like I did at your place.  I think you captured the real "me" more than any of my other recordings.  By your pleasant demeanor, and talent, you changed my feelings toward recording.
I wish you continued success, and I know you'll do well.  Can't wait till next time.
Keep a song in your heart,
EG

Richard, you had a very big part in getting the Robin McNett Band off the ground!  You made it so easy for us to go in and cut our demo and get the ball rollin'.  We are getting jobs, due in no small part to your expertise, patience, and professionalism in the studio.   Thanks for EVERYTHING!  Including the free seafood buffet!!!..or didn't everybody get that?

Ann Rabson All the instruments sound clear, distinct and musical on this CD and my voice sounds more natural and less artificial on your recording than any I've done before. I don't know why this is so. Maybe for technical reasons or because I found the atmosphere at Green Valley to be so relaxing that I could sing from the heart. For what ever reason I'm delighted.

I've been intending to write and sing your praises but you know all about good intentions, I trust. I'm sorry I've let you wallow in uncertainty about my reaction to all the effort and time you've put in. It is more than noticeable and more than appreciated. Autumn Ayers,

The Corral Hi Richard,
Just a note of thanks for your professionalism. It's pretty great how you always keep your composure and good attitude, even when you have 3 goobers in your face offering... "direction"?.

You really do know your way around your rig there in the mixing room. Still amazes me. I appreciate the way you stop as soon as we need to make a change. I know some engineers won't do that, I've actually experienced that. I guess it's a good way to burn up more studio time. You get into the project and seem to know what we're thinking before we say it. A very positive experience is that Green Valley Studio.
Later, Bill

Richard,
I got the CD's, they look great and they sound excellent !!  I am going to send you your copy. We are booked solid all of this year and in 2008 We currently have jobs in New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, Virginia, and we got some of the biggest Bluegrass festivals in PA. It is really starting to take off. 
 I believe this album is great and ranks up there with some of the artists making a living at bluegrass. I bought worse Bluegrass albums by big name artists than this CD. I'm very pleased. Alright I will keep in touch.  Thanks again for everything.

Cole Where to start.  Thanks Richard for being who you are.  Your help has brought to life a great song... WOW!  A lot of positive things have happened since I saw you last.  Dan and I had my internet live show for my fans around the world.  It just so happened that Sony, Sci-Fi, Capitol records were also listening in and Scott Phillips the drummer from Creed honored me with his time.  Kinda cool!  The Record companies have spoken with Don,  and they now wish for me to do a private show for them and if at all they want me to sell  them a couple originals that are on our first demo with you. You played some unbelievable guitar licks on the songs we just did.  You are the man.  Patrick Cole,

Thanks Richard, was great to come there and work with you, very relaxed atmosphere and I refuse to record anywhere but with you at Green Valley! You ARE THE MAN. Thanks buddy!  I value your opinions and your advise very much. I asked you because you are a "pro" and I know if you tell me this or that needs changed, then it is the truth, and I thank you for that. I will apply the changes you told me about and if you think they are ready to be recorded and so-forth, I would like to come up and have your talent and knowledge put to work on my cd. Thanks again, Bobby

Hi Richard,
It was quite a surprise when I also received a plaque.  I didn't expect one but it was a very nice gesture on Disc Makers part.  I am impressed with the quality and speed with which they work!!  I am pleased with the finished product and would recommend you and Disc Makers-a great combination.  I will send you a CD and will pass on your greetings to the chorus.  I hope things slow down a bit for you and that you can enjoy the warm spring weather we are bound to get any day now?!  We have about 150 CDs out in bookstores, chorus members, churches, etc.  and have  had compliments on the graphics and the music.  And I hope we can stay in touch even though this project is completed.  Thanks again for everything!  Say hello to Alison and if we get up that way it would be fun to have eggs and scrapple at Butler's.  Blessings, Dave
