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 Michael Costa for his excellent support of the community in responding to comments. Over to you Michael...
I’ve tread a similar early path to Russ, getting into all this stuff in the early to mid 80s with a Tascam 244 Portastudio as well. This was to supplement my current ambitions as a keyboard/synth player. Over the years a passion towards the technology pushed me into Sound Tools in the late 80s and eventually into Pro Tools v1 in 1991. I’ve been a long time user and local support guy of Pro Tools ever since.
After years of co-owning a major DVD production facility with a specialty in doing surround audio, these days I’m doing a lot of freelance mixing and production, some teaching at a local college here as well as authoring the odd Groove3 title among other things.
Now the prize we offer, thanks to the generosity of Sonnox, is for the winner to choose one of the plug-ins from the Sonnox Elite Collection. However Michael already has them all so we asked Sonnox if we would give Michael the new Sonnox Envolution plug-in and they have graciously agreed. So back to you Michael...
Like many of us, I’m totally empowered by the breadth and control that today’s plug-ins provide, and as such I’ve chosen the new Sonnox Envolution plug-in. I’m a huge fan of transient shaping plug-ins anyway, but Sonnox have taken things a step further by providing discrete detailed controls for the attack and sustain portions. I’m really looking forward to using the ‘difference’ feature to hear what the process is actually doing.
Thanks so much to Pro Tools Expert and Sonnox for developing and supporting such a thriving community.
What Is The Sonnox Community Award?
As we have said on many occasions we aren’t the only Pro Tools Experts, it works best when we pull together as a community to help each other when and where we can. There are plenty of places on the web for trolls and negativity, but many of our members work hard to create a positive and supportive community of Pro Tools Experts and we think that kind of attitude should be recognised and encouraged. With all of that in mind we are rewarding those in the community who go the extra mile to help others.
So 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.
