Kopperhead’s (North Canton, Ohio; www.kopperhead.com) 30-year anniversary was highlighted with the install of a Pro Tools HD Accel system (with Control|24 surface, 192 I/O with analog expansion and MIDI module) in the John Storyk — designed Master Studio’s control room. Operating within a Mac dual-G5 system with dual monitors, the system offers a large assortment of plug-ins, including the Waves Diamond bundle; Dynaudio BM6A near-field monitors have also been added.
“We have always been known for our acoustic environment,” Kopperhead president Lee Kopp said, “and we were certainly on the cutting edge of digital production with our early and substantial investment in the Synclavier Digital Music System. People are always blown away by the fact that a studio of this caliber is located in North Canton, Ohio, and have often referred to us as one of the best-kept secrets in Ohio. But our clients have come from all over the country, and it has been our ability to serve both local and out-of-state clients that has enabled us to achieve this level of success over the past 30 years.”
