Only published comments... May 26 2011, 05:22 AM by Mark Williams



Pro Sound Web broke the news yesterday that the METAlliance (Music Engineering & Technology Alliance) announced Avid has become the newest Pro Partner of the organization.


The METAlliance was founded by Chuck Ainlay, Ed Cherney, Frank Filipetti, George Massenburg, Phil Ramone, Elliot Scheiner and Al Schmitt, a group of globally-recognized, award-winning audio engineers and producers who have been deeply involved in establishing techniques and technical standards that are the foundation of modern music recording. The METAlliance's Pro Partner membership is limited, by invitation, to companies that have shown a capacity and proclivity to manufacture and distribute products that meet the organization’s professional audio qualifications.


“Moving to Pro Tools 9 with its open architecture has persuaded me that we are finally realizing the dream that all of us who embraced digital recording had been hoping for, " said Frank Filipetti.


Ed Cherney added, “Pro Tools has been the center of my studio. Avid’s new open architecture is now the center of my musical universe.”

Avid joins other METAlliance Pro Partners: AKG, Audio-Technica, Cakewalk, DPA Microphones, JBL Pro, Lexicon, Manley Laboratories, GML, Millennia Music & Media Systems, Neumann USA, Prism Sound, Royer MIcrophones, Sanken Microphones, Solid State Logic, Sonnox, Steinberg, tc electronic, Universal Audio, and Yamaha.
