Neal Cappellino – Multiple Grammy Winning Engineer Producer
(Allison Krauss, Del McCoury, Vince Gill, Dolly Parton, Brad Paisley)
“I find you do things with a fader that you’d never do with a mouse. It’s a matter of ‘right brain’ mixing versus ‘left brain’. The Icon Platform M+ keeps me interacting with the mix spontaneously, rather than doing geometry and math. If it’s essential to grab faders, then grab one of these.”
Producer/Engineer Neal Cappellino has called Nashville home for more than 20 years.
