LAS VEGAS, NEVADA - DECEMBER 2010: TransAudio Group, boutique distributor/marketer of the world's most highly-regarded pro audio recording equipment, announced that it will distribute Dave Hill Designs hardware and software in the United States. Hill's long history of designing unique and powerful processors, together with his singular mastery of both the analog and digital domains, has earned him a cult status within the industry. Dave Hill Designs' new current product line is comprised of the Europa I, a class-A mic preamp with unparalleled control over transient response and gorgeous harmonic distortion, and the RA, a TDM plug-in that emulates amplifier overload to impress the luster of imperfection on sterile digital signals.
"Dave Hill is one of the most significant inventors of our day in professional audio," said Brad Lunde, president of TransAudio Group. "He is the rare person who has had
a major impact both on hardware and software. The chance to work with him is an honor and a privilege, and I am confident that, like everything else he has touched, Dave Hill Designs will be a major factor in the marketplace." Hill designed many of Summit Audio's early products, including the legendary TLA-100 tube leveling amplifier, and founded Crane Song Ltd., one of the most revered names in high-end pro audio. Most recently, he was incremental in the design of Avid's highly acclaimed "Heat" engine for Pro Tools 9.
"I have known Brad Lunde for many years," said Hill. "He is one of the most trustworthy and knowledgeable people in the business, and I am glad we will be working together to get these products into the hands of people who will appreciate them."
