studer_brunohochstrasser.jpg

POTTERS BAR, United Kingdom — Effective immediately, Bruno Hochstrasser returns to HARMAN’s Studer as General Manager, reporting to Andy Trott (VP and General Manager, Mixing and Microphones & Headphones).

Bruno Hochstrasser joined Studer in 1971 and was highly instrumental in Studer’s domination of the high-quality, recording studio tape machine market with iconic models like the A800 (he was actually the product manager for its launch in 1978!), amongst many others.

In 1990, Bruno became President of Studer. During the 1990s, the company reinvented itself following the demise of tape, and Bruno led Studer to become the digital mixing console brand it is today. Less than two years ago, Bruno decided to go into semi-retirement but remained connected with the company as a brand ambassador, mainly in the Middle East, Africa and Europe.

“Bruno is today’s Mister Studer,? said Andy more
