MW Audio recently outfitted a new audio-video production facility for composer/producer Rich Handley (pictured left)."I plan to handle a wide range of post and film work in the new room, so a fully integrated environment was very important," said Handley. "MW Audio has considerable experience in commissioning audio-video systems, and was an ideal vendor for me. They also provided a lot of close support as I came up to speed with the various software applications and hardware systems. MW Audio also handled the sound proofing of my new facility, including specifying and installing a series of Auralex Acoustics Sound Blocks and Panels."

Other hardware supplied by MW Audio includes an Apple 30-inch Cinema HD Display, GTech G RAID 500 GB and 800 GB Firewire drives, a Tube Tech MP 1A Dual Tube mic pre-amp and a Neumann U87A condenser microphone with shock mount. Musical instruments include a Yamaha Motif ES8-88 sampling synthesizer workstation. A separate custom Pentium 4-equipped PC, complete with a RME HDSP9652 24-channel, 24/96K audio card, runs Tascam GigaStudio GS3 sampling software.

"I heard of Michael Warren's MW Audio pro dealership," Handley recalled, "through a mutual friend, Bob Sky, co-owner of Novastar Digital Sound Services, Hollywood. Michael recommended what I needed and put together my package. The company has excellent follow through, and shows real imagination."

"MW Audio's sales staff is always available--even now when I'm reading the user manuals and studying the DVD Tutorials. They are a very knowledgeable team; nothing is too stupid a question," Handley considered. "I would definitely recommend MW Audio for anybody looking for audio and video systems, installation and service."

The first projects at Valencia Studios include post producing a series of videotaped lectures by a local physician. "Eventually," Handley confided, "I would like to offer a full range of services, including one-stop video production for other musicians and film makers, including promo videos, 'behind-the-scenes' featurettes, plus commercials for corporate and
industrial clients."
