Westlake Village, CA (September 2, 2010)--Producer/composer Andrew Thomas has upgraded his personal studio with a new SSL AWS 900+ SE console purchased from GC Pro.
Thomas also turned to Guitar Center Professional, the outside sales division of Guitar Center that focuses on the needs of professional users, for an upgrade to his Avid Pro Tools|HD3 rig from a PCI to a PCIe, as well as an Avid 192 I/O audio interface and a new patch bay custom configured for him by GC Pro sales associate Joe Ingle.
Thomas is the producer behind hip-hop artist MN Fats and several of the artist's standout tracks, including collaborations with Keisha White and Snoop Dogg, the latter of whom performed on a track co-written by Thomas himself. MN Fats' project is to be released through Sony Music and distributed through Sony's RED distribution arm. That record will be mixed on the SSL AWS 900+ SE.
Joe Ingle, the GC Pro Sales Associate at the Minneapolis store who guided the sale, remarked, "It was great being able to come up with exactly what Andy wanted in the patch bay which was one of his main concerns with the upgrade. The new patch bays all terminate to DB25 connectors, which combined with all custom Mogami snakes, make for a simple, clean and effective solution. Andy has a great studio and he does really good work. Minneapolis has always had a great music scene, and it's constantly getting better. I love being a part of it."
