Since founding Ocean Way in 1973, Sides’ studios and his Ocean Way Monitoring Systems have helped artists like The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, Eminem, Janet Jackson and Radiohead, to name a few, create milestone music recordings.
Each system Ocean Way Monitoring system is designed and custom made to order after Ocean Way’s technical specialists, including Allen Sides, have personally analyzed the space a user intends to install them in. The price of an Ocean Way system includes a pre-evaluation of the studio, as well as complete installation and alignment, all cables, connectors and wiring.
Working with the GC Pro Account manager, the Ocean Way team will also make suggestions to cost-effectively correct any potential problems before a monitor system is installed. Ocean Way is happy to do this in existing spaces or using architectural plans for a new space. In addition, GC Pro and Ocean Way “guarantee the end user that every aspect of what you would hear listening to a track in the control room at Ocean Way Recording Studios is the exact sound you will hear in your room.”
GC Pro Director Tom Menrath stated, “This partnership with Allen Sides and Ocean Way allows GC Pro customers to have access to the absolute best audio monitoring on the planet. GC Pro is dedicated to offering the most comprehensive choice of solutions to our clients, and Ocean Way Monitoring Systems are another way we’re keeping that promise.”
