ATC LOUDSPEAKERS MAKE 251 MUSIC

brett_cookingham.jpgLOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA – AUGUST 2008: Brett Cookingham and Matt Pavolaitis, founders, owners, and operators of 251 Music, are remarkably busy. In only a few short years, they have placed over 3,000 pieces of original, high-quality music, of every conceivable genre, on network television. On one day, they may be writing and recording a country tune and the next a blazing loud rock anthem, with some folk or jazz in the evening to break things up! They wear the many hats of producer, recording engineer, composer, musician, mix engineer, and mastering engineer – often simultaneously. Ardently opposed to using pre-recorded loops or samples, Cookingham and Pavolaitis record everything themselves in their well-appointed live room/control room/mastering suite. They recently received a significant leg up in that process with a pair of “relentlessly truthful” ATC SCM50ASL powered reference monitors. more
