Each month we award the Community Member Of The Month Award sponsored by Sonnox. This award goes to the individual, who in the judges opinion, made an ongoing contribution to the Pro Tools Expert community. This month we have awarded it to Steve Galante.
I am an Italian/Canadian producer based in Montreal, QC. Like many of us nowadays I'm usually wearing many hats, so I'm also a songwriter, composer, mix and mastering engineer working in various genres, from classical/crossover to pop, R'nB, rap/hiphop and movies.
I've been collaborating with many artists for more than 30 years, including Andrea Bocelli, Filippa Giordano, Gino Vannelli, etc, and I got a few gold and platinum records.
Coming from a full analog / tape world, I'm now mostly in an hybrid environment (ProTools HD and external hardware outboard). I am a long time Sonnox EQ user, and I have chosen the reverb because I've always liked how deep and at the same time simple its parameters are, and the clarity and transparency of its sound, reminding me some great hardware units.
