Pro Tools Expert, the largest independent Pro Tools web site and community in the world, are to sponsor one of the most prestigious categories at the MPG Awards 2016.
Pro Tools Expert will sponsor the ‘International Producer of the Year’ category, previously won by producers such as Rick Rubin, Butch Vig and Daniel Lanois.
For the last seven years, the Music Producers Guild Awards has recognised and celebrated some of the most remarkable and exciting talent in the history of music recording.
“Pro Tools Expert is a diverse community made up of hundreds of thousands of Pro Tools users around the world, many of them are MPG members and previous winners of MPG Awards. It makes perfect sense for us to throw our support behind this award and in particular the International Producer of the Year award to reflect that fact. We are proud to be friends of the MPG and many of the producers who the awards celebrate”
Pro Tools Expert founder Russ Hughes
“We held our first Awards in 2009, one year after Pro Tools Expert was founded. Both have grown in significance over the years and we are very happy to welcome Pro Tools Expert on board as an MPG Awards sponsor. It's going to be a great night!"
