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.

e1312284019.jpg

Winnipeg – August 2, 2011 – Christian artist, singer/songwriter Steve Bell is on a roll. With 16 solo albums under his belt since he launched his solo career in 1989, Bell is currently touring for his latest album, Kindness, but in the last few years he has also made a name for himself playing with symphony orchestras across Canada. To get the kind of melodious sound Bell is known for from his albums, he and his crew rely almost exclusively on Neumann microphones during their performances, whether Bell is performing solo, with his band or with one of a dozen symphony orchestras.

Considered a “happy accident? by Bell, the symphony orchestra tour began more than two years ago where he lives in Winnipeg, Manitoba, when he was invited to perform with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra. Since that successful performance, Bell has more
