The Pensado Awards has announced the date and venue for its fourth annual award ceremony – dubbed by insiders as the must-attend audio event of the year. Created by Herb Trawick and Dave Pensado of Penwick Media (the producers of Pensado's Place and other industry-leading audio-related media), the awards were founded as a means of acknowledging talented music producers, engineers, mixers, songwriters and their work, serving as a grand opportunity for the best pros, amateurs, brands and press to come together as one community to celebrate the uncelebrated. Since its inception, the show has continued to gain momentum and garner attention throughout the industry and beyond.
Chris Lord-Alge is a 5-time Grammy-award winning American mix engineer known for his use of dynamic range compression in both hardware and software plug-in versions.
