Westlake Village, CA (December 3, 2012)—Las Vegas-based Studio at the Palms recently upgraded with three new Avid Pro Tools HDX systems sourced and supplied through Guitar Center Professional (GC Pro).
The new systems were installed in Studio X and Studio Y at the facility, which is located at the Palms Casino Resort, along with a "floater" system that lets any space in the studio become a fully compatible recording environment.
"We really pride ourselves on being state-of-the-art here and always ready at a moment's notice to serve our clients," says Zoe Thrall, Studio director, Studio at the Palms, which has hosted such artists as Lady Gaga, Ne-Yo, The Killers, LMFAO and others. Thrall notes that artists working on long-term projects or just passing through Las Vegas for performances or for awards shows often use some of their time there to record new tracks or finish up existing ones. "They expect the best from us, and that's what we strive to deliver."
Thrall, who previously supervised operations for The Hit Factory and Avatar Studios in New York City, says GC Pro has been an invaluable resource in keeping her studios at the cutting edge of music technology. "They really know their stuff, and they can get me what I need quickly and cost-effectively," she says, noting that she's purchased DSP and software system through GC Pro, as well as used it as a portal to Guitar Center itself. "My relationship with GC Pro goes back to the New York days, and wherever I've worked with GC Pro, it's always been a great experience," she adds.
