The New York City pro audio community was abuzz in September with a very welcome event: In the Mix at Legacy Recording Studios (formerly Right Track/Sound on Sound), a Grammy® event put on by the Producers & Engineers Wing and hosted by Frank Filipetti, Dave O’Donnell, Phil Ramone, Elliot Scheiner and Maureen Droney, executive director of the P&E Wing.
“Our New York City Producers & Engineers Wing In the Mix is the third one we’ve done,” Droney said. “The others were at The Village Studios in Los Angeles and at Masterfonics in Nashville. We’ve been fortunate to have the sponsorship of JBL Professional to create these events, which help further our mission to create a strong sense of community among recording professionals. These days, with so many engineers and producers doing a lot of their work in private studios or at home, we don’t get together with our peers often enough.
“It’s been great for us to get the word out about the P&E Wing and what we’re doing, and it’s also been great for JBL to be able to introduce working professionals to their new LSR Series of studio monitors,” she continued. “Those who attended the events have given us great feedback. They not only enjoyed them, they really appreciate that we’re working on issues that are important to them.”
