Harman Pro North America appointed Shane Morris principal engineer for Soundcraft and Studer’s digital console offerings.
Morris is tasked with providing technical sales, engineering and support for sound reinforcement customers using Soundcraft Vi Series and Studer Vista Series consoles; he also serves as a resource for the broadcast client base of both brands.
Morris has three decades of pro audio industry experience, initially starting out in his native Australia designing and building mixing consoles and power amplifiers. Upon moving to the United Kingdom in 1978, he accepted a position with Soundcraft, then in London, as international service manager, eventually relocating to Los Angeles as technical manager for Soundcraft USA during its early ‘80s years in Santa Monica, Calif.
Morris spent a short time with Apogee Digital Electronics in L.A. before returning to Australia where he supported the newly formed Fairlight ESP digital audio workstation.
Having also designed products for both Audio Analysts and ATI over the years, Morris most recently was employed as a U.S. technical sales and support engineer for DiGiCo.
