Orlando, FL (February 7, 2007)–14-time Grammy-winning producer/engineer Eric Shilling recently installed the Digidesign ICON integrated console environment into his Orlando, Florida-based studio, Norfolk Music. With over 160 albums to his credit from artists that include Enrique Iglesias, Shakira, Natalie Imbruglia, Gloria Estefan, and Natalie Cole, Shilling has achieved unique crossover success in the pop/rock and Latin music markets.
The ICON in Norfolk Music, Orlando, FLIn an effort to continue his success streak, Shilling chose a 32-fader D-Control console with surround panner and Pro Tools|HD3 Accel system for working with his clients. He made the decision after co-mixing this year’s Grammy Award broadcast.
“ICON impressed me when I first demoed it,” said Shilling, a 14-year Pro Tools user. “However, relying on it to mix the Grammy Awards broadcast locked the deal for me because it was reliable, flexible, and sounded fantastic. Through that experience, I gained enough confidence in it to buy one for my own studio, Norfolk Music. I had already converted to Pro Tools|HD because of how much the sound quality improved. Adding a D-Control was a natural next step for me and now I have all the power I need to continue producing award-winning music mixes.”
Shilling’s most recent ICON mixing projects include five-time Grammy-winning Latin artist Olga Tanon and hard rock band Alter Bridge, which was formed by Mark Tremonti, Brian Marshall, and Scott Phillips of Creed, and Myles Kennedy of The Mayfield Four.
