Massey plugins news

Steven Massey got news for us. The guy who showed the world how every plugin company should operate, has very interesting news. Updates, upcoming new products and even more. Some of these were shown at this years’ AES show.

About me

 

Tamas Dragon is a sound engineer based in Hungary. I am literally living my life dedicated to sound. I played the trombone for many years when I was a kid, then became a live sound guy doing front of house and monitor duties on many major Hungarian acts and festivals. Beside live sound, I have my real life which is score recording-mixing. I work full time as a scoring mixer/re-recording mixer for the biggest Hungarian studio complex named Palace of Arts. Yearly I record and mix more than a hundred concerts, tv and radio shows, galas and live broadcasts, while still doing selected live gigs. As my obsession even goes beyond this, years back I started to blog about this vocation. I hope you find it interesting and helpful.

On the last note: I’m not affiliated with Avid or any other company.
