LAS VEGAS, NEVADA - JUNE 2010: TransAudio Group, boutique distributor of the recording industry's best-of-the-best equipment, announces the addition of Mark Hornsby, a producer and engineer at the top of his field, to the position of marketing and project manager. Hornsby will help users understand what sets TransAudio Group's manufacturers apart via multifarious routes, including in-the-field seminars, skilled trade show efforts, and product demonstrations, both live and online. Hornsby will remain in the pro audio hotbed of Nashville to continue his diversity of work as a producer, engineer, consultant, lecturer, and writer, based out of Java Jive Studio.
"For years, I have been searching for just the right fit for this position," said Brad Lunde, principal at TransAudio Group. "It requires someone who will command the respect of the world's best inventors and customers, someone who has both the on-the-ground
skills and a gift for communication. I am happy to say that Mark Hornsby is that person. Few in the music industry can claim so diverse or so deep a background. He has worked in MI and pro audio retail. He co-owned Ridenour Studios in Fort Lauderdale, FL. He has produced and consulted on pro audio software sales and development. He is a regular contributor to Recording Magazine. He is a certified Pro Tools expert. He has lectured at the leading schools in the industry, including Pro Media Training, MTSU, Berklee, NYU, Belmont, SAE, and FullSail."
Lunde continued, "On top of all of this, or more accurately at its base, Mark maintains an active career as a producer and engineer. He lives in the trenches." Hornsby's production and engineering clients include a multitude of indie artists in a variety of genres. He has also delivered stellar tracks for the Judds, Neal Peart of Rush, Word Entertainment and New Found Glory, among many, many others.
Hornsby is already working on the Audio Underground events. He's also creating a series of online videos with George Massenburg that details the straightforward and creative uses of the GML product line in the studio. He will create similar marketing tools for key manufacturers on the TransAudio Group line card. Finally, he has recently introduced the new ATC SCM25A Pro active three-way monitors to Nashville's Blackbird Studio, where a long list of the nation's top producers and engineers will get the opportunity to experience how easily ATC mixes translate.
"Working with TransAudio Group is a natural extension of the activities that I'm already heavily invested in," said Hornsby. "TransAudio Group represents great manufacturers, which makes it easy to do a demo or seminar. I will continue the work that has brought me to this point - producing, engineering, etc. - which will keep my head right where it needs to be: focused on creating great music. It is important to remember that the TransAudio Group products that I'm working with are not only excellent tools, but also a lot of the same equipment I've been using for years on my own recordings. Working directly with the manufacturers, I am discovering new things about their products that I already use and combining that with my perspective as a long time user. I think we all look forward to the synergy this is will create."
