Boston, MA (October 10, 2008)–Technical services provider Professional Audio Design, Inc. has launched PADTech, an individualized program that helps studio owners acquire, service and maintain their equipment infrastructure.
Professional Audio Design (PAD), a supplier and integrator of console manufacturers such as AMS Neve, SSL and others, launched PADTech to serve the needs of customers who either lack their own in-house technical resources and/or require additional technical support beyond what is typically provided by the manufacturer. PADTech can also serve as an extension to a studio’s own technical capabilities.
“Studio owners require a technical road map to help their businesses succeed, no matter what their size,” commented Dave Malekpour, president of PAD. “As studio profiles continue to shift dramatically, most lack the capability and financial means to manage required maintenance and upgrades. PADTech was developed as a cost-effective alternative to help these customers access the high-level of expertise, no matter what size their studio.”
PADTech, which the company states is the equivalent of having an in-house tech shop minus the associated overhead costs, claims it can help audio systems perform better through regular maintenance, minimizing downtime and preventing equipment failure. PADTech’s aim is to help customers leverage a cost-effective program that uses PAD’s systems and integration knowledge as well as a geographically diverse network of technical consultants. The program can also serve as an off-site repository for technical configurations, service records and wiring diagrams.
“We have come to rely on PAD to handle all of our maintenance and repairs,” said Juan Perez, owner of New York-based Roc The Mic studios. “Working with PAD is like having the benefit of an in-house tech, but just when we need one. We signed up for the PADTech maintenance program so we don’t have to worry about technical issues interfering with our clients’ busy recording schedules.”
