Rodger Reed - Winner Of The Editors Keys Backlit Keyboard
I'm a musician, singer, songwriter. In addition to my own music, I do remixes and work on other projects from time to time. I'm always looking to upgrade my gear whenever possible, so this is great! When I started I looked at things from an artist perspective and relied on the technical expertise of others in the studio. Now that I am reliant on myself and the tools at my disposal, it's more important for me to have gear that improves my ability to get the best results possible.
I'm greatful for resources like Pro Tools Expert to provide tips, tricks, and helpful articles that help me along my recording path. I feel that I'm still grasping the intricacies of Pro Tools and I'm confident that the Editors Keys Pro Tools Backlit Keyboard will help to vastly improve my work flow in addition to being a great looking addition to my set up. My sincere thanks to both Pro Tools Expert and Editors Keys for this great promotion.
Matt Ballenger - Winner Of A MacBook Pro Keyboard Overlays For Pro Tools
I am fortunate enough to scratch out a living making music splitting my time as a producer and performing artist. I own and operate a small studio in Lexington, KY where I do most of my work in Pro Tools HD. In these days of the cottage-isation of the entertainment industry, it is absolutely necessary to be a jack of all trades. My music background allows me to best serve my clients’ artistic needs and establish trust in the care of their projects. I also earned my degree in the field of Electrical Engineering from the University of Kentucky, and I am constantly finding a balance between the science and art of recording and production.
Pro Tools Expert is on my daily reading list as I always find helpful new ways to improve my workflow and latest news about products. Thanks so much for the Editors Keys Pro overlay. I do a lot of mobile work with my MacBook Pro, so it will be great to have my favorite shortcuts easily visible when working in dimly lit rooms!
Kristin Wensel Ellingsen - Winner Of A MacBook Pro Keyboard Overlays For Pro Tools
I'm a music-tech student at NTNU, in Trondheim, Norway.
I have my own home-studio, so this will help speed up my workflow :)
Jan-Niklas Würpel - Winner Of A MacBook Pro Keyboard Overlays For Pro Tools
I'm a Freelance Audio Engineer living near Hamburg/Germany. Primarily I work for the "Tagesschau" the main news show on German television.
Additionally I'm doing post work at my home studio for documentaries and daily shows running a Pro Tools 11HD System.
I'm looking forward to try the new keyboard overlay. For sure it will improve my workflow.
Mark Lange - Winner Of A MacBook Pro Keyboard Overlays For Pro Tools
Music has always been a part of my life, and PlethoraTone studio is my current musical home. I began playing piano at the age of five, until finally landing in a middle school rock bands on bass guitar. I am a long-time amateur radio operator (KA4BKA) and my early teenage electronics experience played right into my future in music production. Influences range from classic, prog, punk, country, americana and alternative rock to pop, jazz, showtunes, and classical music.
A 2005 move to Nashville from Seattle, combined with the befriending of Chris Brush, yielded a mutual desire to create a totally unique audio workspace. And with years of prayerful planning, design, construction plus the kindness of countless friends, PlethoraTone was born. My ultimate musical goal? “To help good folks have a lot of fun creating something greater than they thought possible.”
PlethoraTone is private, relaxed, non-stressful, and comfortable. On the studio vibe continuum it's somewhere between high art and “Garage Mahal,” and is perfectly balanced with some mad scientist laboratory thrown in for good measure.
The Editors Keys Pro Tools MacBook Pro keyboard overlay will provide a practical visual "confidence check" as we work on sessions offline. Our daily use of Pro Tools at PlethoraTone will only be augmented with access to the tech from the fine folks at Editors Keys. Pro Tools Expert keeps us up to date on all Pro Tools' happenings, and we really appreciate what Mike & the crew do!
Aurèle Louis - Winner Of A MacBook Pro Keyboard Overlays For Pro Tools
I'm a sound engineer and musician, bassist and cellist in Marey. I work in a nice studio in Fribourg called "Studio de la Fonderie" but I also built up my own project studio for the more alternative jobs I have to do. I work a lot these days with video. In my project studio, I am working on an Apogee system coupled with an Audient ASP880, an octo-preamp that I really like.
I think that the Editors Keys are going to help me improve my speed editing in my projects, that's in fact something that I was about to buy next month!
Oskar Sadle - Winner Of The Audient iD14 Interface
I’m an Audio Engineer and Producer from Stockholm, Sweden. I started pursuing my audio career at SAE Institute in Stockholm. Since then, I’ve had the opportunity to get to know and/or collaborate with some of Sweden's greatest songwriters, producers, recording- and mixing engineers, as well as being awarded a Bachelors Degree in Audio Production.
I’m currently based in Los Angeles where I studying Post Production at Musicians Institute. Luckily, I’m getting all of my certifications in Pro Tools through the school. I’ve also had the oppertunity to work on music with various acts in my time off from school through a newly founded audio production team called “Club Confundo”.
Since I’m always working at different locations, whether if it’s in a studio or in someones bedroom, the Audient iD14 is a perfect addition to my current setup thanks to its portability!
Victor Crestani - Winner Of The Audient ASP800 mic preamp
I'm a 22 years Old French student. I studied sound engineering for 2 years and I'm currently working in order to prepare for one of the best French school for sound engineering. Aside from that, I'm working as an assistant in a recording studio in Paris. I started working there 2 years ago and it's the place where I really discovered what professionnel working was about. I gave me the opportunity to work on big session and to record a full Jazz album as sound engineer last summer.
For me, sound is of course work, but mainly a passion. I have spent a lot of time making music or mixing stuff for about 5 or 6 years now. It's what motivates me to do stuff every day and I can't see at all how I could quit making music.
As a musician, I'm making electronic music and mainly techno and for that, I need to be able to record easily and without any patching my outboard synth. so far this has been a nightmare cause I only have a 2 channel interface (I was looking for nice converters so I choose to go for a 2 AD/DA interface rather than for an 8 AD/DA interface with very cheap converters and horrible signal to noise ratio). But now with the ASP 800, I'll be able to have all my most important stuff plugged in all the time and so be able to compose spontaneously with nice sound and real preamp. I was also looking for some DI because, even in techno stuff, guitars and bass might fit in and of course, mic pre will be really useful!
So, in conclusion, thanks for everything that this giveway will allow me to do. That's so crazy !!

Two Notes Engineering
Two Notes Torpedo Wall Of Sound III Software
My name is Spencer Sandfield and I'm 22 years old. I'm from Dallas, TX and have been mixing and recording since I was in high school recording my former band 'The Floor is Lava'.
I recently graduated from Full Sail University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Recording Arts and am aiming to be a professional mixing engineer.
As you can probably see from my very humble set up (planning on a getting a bigger desk soon), I can't always crank my tube amp without bothering neighbours. I've heard a lot of great demos of Two Notes products like the Torpedo Live Digital Loadbox so I look forward to putting the Wall Of Sound software through its paces. This will be a great help to getting great guitar tones and an even greater help to getting great bass tones. Thanks a million and I look forward to using the plug-in!
Viktor Löfgren - Winner Of The Two Notes "CAB In A Box" Speaker Simulation Stompbox
I'd love to start working with the Two Notes CAB. I tried the Two Notes Torpedo VB101 a couple of years ago and I was really impressed by it's high quality. I have my studio in an apartment and to be able to record electric guitars without a real cabinet is just awesome! I hope the Two Notes CAB is as well sounding as the other Two Notes products I've heard.
