Ralph Plank - Owner, Plank Productions, Inc.
Russ has started a vibrant community of musicians, engineers and writers on the web where there was none before. This community helps share knowledge and musical instrument samples or sounds with the people working inside the music business. He has helped build support for the Structure sampler from Digidesign as well as create helpful tutorial videos that showcase the how-to knowledge that many times is hard to come by. This has all been on a free basis that has helped enrich the lives of the broad music community.

Eric Johnson - Washington D.C. Metro Area
Russ and his AIR Users Blog have provided a tremendous wealth of information, videos, sounds, patches and presets to a community that was most certainly in need. It is absolutely amazing just how much value he has created in just over a year.

Mick Begley - Ireland
Russ is the magician that reveals his secrets. Without his blog and indeed personal support I wouldn't have the drive, skills and confidence to go out there a work on my own music. He's an ambassador of the Arts.
Tony Harris - Bristol, United Kingdom
Russ has created a worldwide community - lifting individuals from the slums and destitutuion of technical bookery to the creative and innovative apex of their true potential - potentially providing pleasure to millions. He gives huge amounts of personal time and resources and asks for very little in return. He skillfully interweaves outstanding communication qualities with the ability to motivate and organise global companies to correctly deliver their goods. He started from scratch, inheriting nothing but a mess and was able to create a magnificent resource providing knowledge, pleasure and skills to musicians everywhere.
Adam Mills - Director, Sounds Magnificent Cambridge, United Kingdom
I can't really describe in words just how fantastic a resource the AIR User's Blog for any aspiring Pro-Tools Producer. You have to actually see for yourself just how much hard work and dedication that has gone into creating the most valuable resource I have found on the web. After a year of raiding resources and learning tips and tricks, I have watched the Blog go from strength to strength and get bigger by the day. i'm now certain that Russ isn't actually human, as the rest of us need sleep and he obviously doesn't! Seriously though, well done. If digi had thought of this years ago and offered people free stuff (I hear you all laugh here!) for use with Pro-Tools, they wouldn't have any competition with other software.

Russ is helping others learn more about the technicalities of their systems AND be creative. I dips me lid.
David Robertson - Music Director at St.Louis Symphony
Russ combines amazing tech savy, user friendly explanations and winning enthusiasm with a mature understanding of all aspects of the business of music creativity and production.
Greg Speier - Regional Director at Young Life Washington D.C. Metro Area
Russ has gone way above and beyond the call of duty in launching the Air Users Blog.
Declan Sherry - Ireland
Hi,i think this is a brilliant site for new pro tools users like myself. Russ is very helpful with all the advice tips and great videos.
Steve Urban - Sound Designer / Audio Mixer at Post-Op Media Washington D.C.
I'm a huge fan of Russ' work for the AIR User's Blog. He listens and responds to his community's questions. No question is too simple for him to spend time explaining in his well produced videos. What's more, after he provides you with the knowledge, he supplies his members with tangible resources to creatively interpret the knowledge with. All the while he only asks for meager donations, or a nominal fee for his hours of dedication to a particular catalog of resources. Thanks Russ!

I appreciate Russ' willingness to support an entire community of music producers, both professional and aspiring, sheerly out of his love and support of AIR products. We've all benefited greatly by his efforts, and he continues to grow his operation to reach thousands more in need of support.
