â€” Atlanta-based DV McCoy calls on GC Pro for a wide range of equipment including an SSL AWS 900+ console, AVID Pro Tools|HD 3 system and Control|24 mixer, NeKo XXL software bundle, Akai MPC and Genelec Active Monitors â€”
WESTLAKE VILLAGE, CA, April 20, 2010 â€” Producer-artist DV McCoy is one of the Atlanta areaâ€™s up-and-coming music figures. A producer and an entrepreneur, DV is ready to take his private 21st Century Recording production and mixing studio to the next level, opening it to other artists and producers in Atlantaâ€™s diverse and expanding music scene and to better support his own Real McCoy Entertainment production company and label.
To make all of this happen fast and happen right, DV turned to Guitar Center Professional (GC Pro), the outside sales division of Guitar Center that focuses on the needs of professional users, and the company behind an entire generation of
new music industry professionals.
GC Pro Sales Specialist Eugene McNair gave DV access to the all of the equipment he needed, in addition to turning him on to the technology that will both enhance his own productions and make his new studio, to be opened later this year, competitive in the fast-paced Atlanta market. That includes an SSL AWS 900+ SE Analog Console, AVID Pro Tools|HD 3 system and Control|24 mixer, NeKo XXL software bundle, Akai Professional MPC, and Genelec 1038B Active Monitors and 7071A Active Subwoofer.
â€œGC Pro and Eugene have been a blessing to me,â€? says DV, who works in hip-hop and reggae genres. â€œHeâ€™s knowledgeable, friendly and fair in his opinions, as is everyone at GC Pro. Theyâ€™ve always steered me straight.â€?
McNair stated, â€œDV was looking to design a room to compete with the major studios in Atlanta without having to spend a fortune in the process. Working closely with him, I was able to put together a system that not only met his budgetary needs, but was right for the clientele he was aiming to attract. He was a pleasure to work with, and we are very proud of this system and to have him as a client.â€?
DV notes that it was McNair who suggested the SSL AWS 900+ console to him, pointing out that when it came to opening a commercial studio, brand names mattered to potential clients. â€œPeople know the name, but they also know that itâ€™s a full console, not just a mixing surface,â€? he explains. â€œIt adds plenty of credibility right from the start for the new studio and for me as a business owner. GC Pro is a great company to have in your corner.â€?
