Rockland, MA (July 2, 2007)–Professional Audio Design (PAD) is celebrating its 15th Anniversary. Since its founding by Dave Malekpour in 1992, the company has provided audio professionals with a combination of technical services and equipment, from custom monitoring, console refurbishment and complex turnkey Pro Tools systems to ground-up designs for personal and world-class studios. A partial list of the PAD client roster includes Aerosmith, Green Day, Wu Tang Clan, Timbaland, Wyclef Jean, Alicia Keys, Neil Finn, Matt Sorum, Nelly, Bennett Studios, Ministry, Quad Studios, Hit Factory, Southern Tracks, Shaggy and others.
Dave Malekpour of Professional Audio Design. “It’s been extremely gratifying to see PAD grow from a company with one technician to a major player in the professional audio landscape,” Malekpour says. “In 15 years, we’ve become an amazingly flexible resource for our customers. After integrating and designing over 2000 studios, PAD has a deep knowledge of what works and our clients benefit from that experience. We spend a lot of time understanding what our clients want and help them to think it through. Our team and inventory are set up to help audio professionals avoid the pitfalls of putting together a DAW system or installing a large-frame analog console themselves. That expertise is irreplaceable, and it’s what makes our 15 years in business so valuable to our clients, now and in the future.”
PAD’s range of technical services include console refurbishment for SSL, Neve, API, Euphonix, Trident and more, as well as custom wiring, studio design services, and turnkey DAW systems that arrive fully synched and ready for production.
“Working so closely with our clients is the aspect that has really kept the last 15 years so exciting – they’re constantly pushing the envelope of what they want to do and therefore what PAD can do for them. Helping our clients to be successful and make great music is exhilarating. There’s nothing like hearing a record you really love and knowing that it was produced in a room that we helped to create.
“The most important element of all for our continued success is the people that make up PAD,” he concludes. “We’re very proud to have attracted such talented, passionate people with a shared commitment to quality. From the owner to the service tech to sales to the shipper, everyone takes a great deal of care in all of our relationships – there’s a shared appreciation for being in the music business, doing something we love.”
