EDMESTON, NY – August 1, 2011 – Award-winning Canadian mix engineer George Seara has created a complete Dangerous Music equipped studio featuring Dangerous 2-Bus analog summing, Monitor ST/SR stereo and surround monitor control, DAC ST for playback of digital sources, and the new Dangerous BAX EQ for tone shaping on featured tracks or the mix buss. “Put it this way: Before the Dangerous Music gear, it would mean I would be doing everything in a large studio,” states Seara. “It’s only with the advent of the Dangerous 2-Bus and the Monitor ST/SR that I’ve finally felt that the level and quality, plus the speed and efficiency with all things surrounding my workflow have come to a point where I can say confidently that I’ve raised the bar, and the quality of my work has improved.

Both high schools (Thomas and Schroeder) and one middle school (Spry) benefitted from state-of-the-art installations that center on Ashly Audio processors and amps. And because Ashly Audio is based in Webster, the new installations will directly benefit its employees’ children!
