In the month of October 2018, we ran a competition offering three copies of IK Multimedia’s amazing Total Studio MAX 2 Bundle. We’ve drawn three lucky winners at random from the digital hat and are pleased to announce the following community members prize draw winners. Congratulations to you all, happy mixing!
I own a recording studio called Digital Forest Studio in Cape Town, South Africa. The studio has been operating for 15 years. My passion is to record, produce and mix music. I look forward to using IK Multimedia Total Studio MAX 2 to better improve my productions. Thanks for choosing me as your winner!
I’ve been mixing sound for film and television now for 20 years. At the start of my career I was fortunate to land a full time job at Channel 7 Melbourne, Australia where I learnt my trade mixing on-air promotions and sport packages on a Fairlight MFX2 and progressed to Pro Tools in 2003. Working for myself for the past 10 years I have recently designed and built my own studio and I have completed all of the Post Pro Tools courses up to and including Pro Tools 310P Expert Post. Recently I have been working in Film post and a film I sound designed as well as mixed, 'Sammy the Salmon', was accepted into the 2018 BFI London Film Festival.
Starting out as a hobbyist musician at 14, I started (poorly) writing music by the time I was 19. About 15 years later I'm jamming in a guitar trio and we discover my recordings of us are pretty good. Within a year, around 2000, I had built myself a Pro-Tools based project studio and was recording demos for local bands. Lost that space in 2004, then met an amazing woman/singer the following year on Match.com. She introduces me to her life long friends who had a band together when they were kids, and soon after they reform. I run sound for them, and within a couple years other bands are asking if I could run sound for them. 8 years after that 1st gig, I'm running 20 events a month during the summer and a dozen or so per month the rest of the year. That lady and I who have been together for 13 years brainstormed our company name a few years ago, Say Watt Sound! I've had the pleasure of working with everyone from local bands to national acts like Zebra, members of the Original Blues Brothers and Vanilla Fudge, Bernie Williams, and JT Bowen to name a few.
