North Canton, OH (August 2, 2006)–Kopperhead Compositions is celebrating 30 years as one of the Midwest’s premiere audio production facilities with the installation of Pro Tools in the control room of its Master Studio.
The Digidesign Pro Tools|HD Accel system includes a Control 24 control surface, 192 I/O with analog expansion and MIDI module. Operating within a Mac dual G5 system with dual monitors, the system has available a large assortment of plug-ins including the Waves Diamond bundle. DynAudio BM6A near-field monitors have also been added.
“We have always been known for our acoustic environment,” said Lee Kopp, president of Kopperhead, referring to facility’s John Storyk-designed Master Studio, “and we were certainly on the cutting edge of digital production with our early and substantial investment in the Synclavier Digital Music System.” He added, “With Pro Tools, Kopperhead’s capabilities are extended and enhanced throughout our recording, sequencing, mixing, and mastering services, and it provides a viable upgrade path far into the future.”
Kopp further stated, “People are always blown away by the fact that a studio of this caliber is located in North Canton, Ohio, and have often referred to us as one of the best kept secrets in Ohio. But our clients have come from all over the country, and it has been our ability to serve both local and out-of-state clients which has enabled us to achieve this level of success over the past 30 years.”
With this additional investment comes even greater possibilities according to Kopp: “The expanded import/export capabilities of Pro Tools greatly enhances our ability to serve those utilizing multiple facilities and talents in their projects, and we fully expect to substantially increase our regional and national reach.”
