10 years ago this year Russ Hughes started the AIR Users blog, which morphed into Pro Tools Expert in 2012. To celebrate our 10-year anniversary we ran a competition with a Pro Audio gear and software prize pot worth over $28,000. One of the prizes was a bundle from our friends at Zynaptiq.
The competition closed on December 31st 2018 and we can announce that the winner is Noah Kass.
“Thank you to the Pro Tools Expert team! I have been a fan and subscriber to Pro Tools Expert since 2011, and I am already thinking about the myriad of ways it is going to help with my workflow. As a currently freelancing dialogue editor, ADR recordist/editor, and sound designer, I was first excited about Zynaptiq’s capabilities when I demoed a couple of their products at NAMM 2013. The single-button feature on their plugins were as intriguing as its function. There are so many things the Zap II Bundle can remove or add to dialogue clips that I will be able to use, and I am excited to add these professional quality plugins to my plugin arsenal.
As an advocate for music therapy and helping those with autism, and parents of autistic children, we can all use music and sound design in different ways to help those who aren’t able to experience new things for themselves, and we can use sound and music to help people with autism experience the world in a new way. A great therapeutic program for autistic children, teens, and adults, is one that allows people’s minds to reach out and connect with what they can hear. “
