The METAlliance Board of Directors is Chuck Ainlay, Ed Cherney, Frank Filipetti, George Massenburg, Phil Ramone, Elliot Scheiner and Al Schmitt.
METAlliance director Chuck Ainlay commented, “SSL consoles define the sound of modern recordings of the 80’s, 90’s and the present decade and to me it’s still the console of choice.” “We’re truly honored to have SSL in the METAlliance family,” said Elliot Scheiner.
Phil Wagner continued, “We believe the METAlliance mission is completely in sync with SSL’s mission – to make better products and to share knowledge of the craft of making great sounding recordings.
