AKG becomes METAlliance Pro Partner
AKG Acoustics recently confirmed its place among the ranks of audio engineering’s elite by becoming a member of METAlliance Pro Partners. The move unites AKG with an organization of audio engineers and producers who have been deeply involved in establishing techniques that form the foundation of modern music recording.
METAlliance Pro Partners is an organization dedicated to producing music through the most effective recording technologies, recognizing only the top qualifying manufacturers for inclusion. Founded in 1947, AKG is a provider of microphones, headphones and wireless audio systems.
The METAlliance organization was founded by a group of highly regarded audio engineers that includes Chuck Ainlay, Ed Cherney, Frank Filipetti, George Massenburg, Phil Ramone, Elliot Scheiner and Al Schmitt. Their long history in music recording and personal experience with AKG equipment is what led them to establish AKG as a member of their organization.
“I’d be hard-pressed to remember a session that didn’t have an AKG microphone on an important voice or instrument source,” said George Massenburg.
