Australia-based Sound and Music—parent company of the SM Pro Audio and Violet Audio brands of music and audio equipment for the recording, live and installed sound markets—has opened a new U.S. office. The move is intended to provide North American retailers with prompt and convenient order fulfillment, direct communication with sales and support personnel, and easy access to a broad range of training programs.
Founded by Danny Olesh and John Fuller, long-time distributors of top-tier MI products in Australia, SM Pro Audio features "clever audio solutions" developed by Olesh and Fuller to solve problems they saw their customers encounter as they wrestled with DAWs, interfaces and tangles of cables. Ten years and more than 50 SKUs later, SM Pro Audio's product line runs the gamut from stand-alone VSTi players to studio controllers to multifunction mixer/mic preamp/DIs, all of which offer exceptional value and performance for end-users.
The Violet Audio product catalog includes studio surround-sound processors and Ethernet-linked multichannel audio networks designed for fixed installations, such as schools, concert halls and houses of worship.
U.S. sales, marketing and operations for both brands will be handled by MV Pro Audio in Santa Barbara, Calif., a company that is long associated with unique and trend-setting MI and pro audio hardware and software.
