Mackie spotted at Studio Summit 2001 in Seattle

  Summit Panel with Keith Olsen

The Pacific Northwest branch of the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences (NARAS), a non-profit arm of the Recording Academy, hosted Studio Summit 2001 at Seattle Center on Sunday, September 9th. The event brought together studio owners, engineers, producers and artists from all over the Pacific Northwest.

This year’s keynote speaker was legendary producer Nile Rodgers whose well-delivered presentation and following Q&A were heard by all thanks to a pair of SRM450s. Rodgers' career has spanned several decades working with such diverse artists as David Bowie, Duran Duran, All-4-One, Mick Jagger, Jeff Beck, the B-52's, Chic, Diana Ross, Madonna, Slash and many others.

Following the keynote, NW luminaries representing the region lead a roundtable discussion with attendees on issues of importance to the recording industry. Panelists included Mackie’s own Keith Olsen who has worked with such artists as Ozzy Osbourne, Heart and Fleetwood Mac. Other panelists included Glenn Lorbiecki (Violent Femmes, Tony Gable and 206 Band), Jack Endino (Nirvana, Mudhoney), Steve Fisk (Pigeonhed, Nirvana, Maktub), Funk Daddy (E 40, Sir Mix-A-Lot, Cool Nutz), Valerie Biggin (studio manager, Mushroom Studios, Vancouver, B.C.), Bill Oskay (Dave Carter & Tracy Grammer, Nightnoise) and special guest Leslie Lewis (Executive Director of the Recording Academy's Producers and Engineers Wing).

babyA highlight of the event was the studio trade-table room that presented Mackie with an ideal opportunity for some blatant product promotion. On display was the “It’s so easy even an infant can use it” HDR24/96 hard disk recorder/editor (optional baby attachment sold separately).

For this year’s “Gear Games” contest, a Mackie 1402-VLZ Pro was up for grabs. At the end of the day, Mark Cavener of Toaster Audio in Seattle walked home with the coveted 1402. Congratulations Mark!
