Just a quick note to say thanks for your hard work in getting the new audio room (Audio 2) put in and running. On only my second day working in the new room, we had our first official Hyundai session in Audio 2 yesterday with 6 of their producer/writers in attendance. Our 3 hour ISDN tracking (with directors via phone patch from Chicago) went off without a hitch. Your efforts allowed Hyundai to have a smooth first experience in the new room and help maintain their confidence in our facilities moving forward.
Well done and thanks again,

David and Jason at Audio Perception are consummate pro's. They are the invisible soldiers that makes things happen and have been the secret weapons on my last couple projects. Most important, you can always count on them to deliver on time even when the clock gets really tight. It's been a pleasure working with them on the House of Rock and Esquire's Magazine's Ultimate Bachelor Pad, and I look forward to working with them again on my next project.

"As a busy working composer, I regard my support team with as much importance as my own contributions to the scores I write. I rely on the guys at Audio Perception during any emergency to get my rig back in working order fast. But also I regularly strategize with them on the latest ideas to design and implement the most efficient workflow for my clients. They've also helped me create a rock solid backup system that keeps me confident that I'll never have any serious data loss. I hope to work with these guys for many years to come!"

"I cannot recommend Audio Perception highly enough. They are true professionals in the design, building and troubleshooting of music creation audio systems, but most importantly, their active and established relationships with many of the top film and TV composers in the industry means they have a special insight into our particular needs, and how the evolving technology can best serve us. It is also this bank of knowledge that they represent that led me to feature them in the SCL event: "Music Technology for the Working Composer", and the information that they provided there has transformed mine and others systems and workflow. They are also highly personable and their prices are very reasonable. It doesn't get better than that!"

"When it came time to beef up my studio and expand -- which meant setting up a multi-Mac system running Logic and hosting ProTools quietly in the background, all while sync'ing to video -- I realized that I was officially in over my head when it came to technology. The tech aspect of composing had suddenly become overwhelming and stood in the way of my being able to write music. This is where Audio Perception came in: I turned the whole thing over to Jason, who advised me about what I needed to purchase, arming me with all the minimum tech specs in advance of my gear shopping, and then spent two days with me in my studio getting everything set up. He did all the heavy lifting: everything from the wiring between macs and interfaces to setting up the preferences across multiple machines. He did the Logic setup for me, explained everything step-by-step, and even came back for a half-day to help me put together my template and do a refresher on how everything worked. AP took the "overwhelming" out of the equation and in 2 days handed me what would've taken me months to figure out on my own. You know how people say ""if you need help, I have a guy"" -- well I now have a guy, and it's Audio Perception."

"David Knauer and his team are the best in the business. They have set me up, taught me everything I want to know about Pro Tools, engineering and how to optimize / personalize my studio. I recommend Audio Perception to everyone who is serious and passionate about their work and want the best quality. I am truly independent and free to work because AP has given me the tools, I feel confident and excited about my creative set up, and if I ever have a question he or his team answer it within minutes.
P.S. I've worked with them for almost 10 years."

"Audio Perception provides a service that has proved invaluable to us. When we recently made some major software and computer upgrades in our studio, we called on AP to help us get it right the first time. David and Jason showed up, answered a barrage of our questions, then went to work on our system. In addition to performing the upgrades we needed and taking care of a list of other problems we were having, Jason came with suggestions on how to make our workflow more efficient, and our data sharing easier. By the end of the first day we were calling him "The Wizard" because we couldn't stump him. There is very little margin for error when you work in the world of television and film scoring. Deadlines are tight, so downtime can be hazardous to your health and well-being. We used to stress out about these things, now we just call our boys over at Audio Perception to help us take care of business."

"David and Jason have proven to be lifesavers many times over, especially to someone like me who is always on a tight schedule.
They've helped with everything from configuring new systems and fixing tricky problems, to just being able to quickly explain how the latest new "something" works, when I don't have time to sit with the manual. Audio Perception gets my highest recommendation."
"I just wanted to say a few words of thanks to the guys at Audio Perception. For many of us the days of having a full time assistant and tech around have passed due to shrinking budgets. My studio still remains as complex as ever, now even more so. When I decided to consolidate, simplify, and re purpose a lot of my computers, I really needed some help as I am most definitely a not a good tech! I got real lucky when I met these guys. They came in, consulted, and took notes. A few days later they came back and did everything I needed. They had good ideas and suggestions everywhere I needed them. And on an ongoing basis they continue to be there for me and always provide the support I need. I recommend them every chance I get and everybody who uses them has the same experience I did. And they're nice guys! What more could you ask for?"

"Audio Perceptions is AWESOME! As director of Television Production and a teacher, I need to be on the pulse of media technology, Audio Perceptions is always there to lend a helping hand in providing me with all of our Digital Editing Needs! They have a hands-on approach when explaining the details to me about what I need to know as a teacher teaching the equipment to students. I have their number on Speed Dial, in my Blackberry to call them at the first sign of trouble. You guys ROCK!"

Ahhh, the left brain and right brain in perfect harmony."
