SEATTLE, Wash. (July 3, 2008) – Audio Agent LLC has been appointed as US national sales management and NE sales representatives for industry-leading instructional DVD creators Secrets of the Pros, Inc.

“There are dozens of instructional videos on the market for aspiring engineers and producers, but none of them are as comprehensive and helpful as the Secrets of the Pros series DVDs,” offered Tom Menrath, Audio Agent’s VP of Brand Management. “I’ve known and respected (Secrets of the Pros founder) Ken Walden for years, and he’s taken great care to distill his accumulated knowledge into these ‘best-in-class’ videos.”
“Like never before, the tools required to make well-produced recordings are available to just about anyone”, explained Walden. “However, most people have a limited knowledge of the tried-and-true techniques used by most top engineers. With Secrets of the Pros, we explain these fundamentals in ways that our viewers understand. Now, Audio Agent will help us take the next step, raising awareness for our videos and helping them reach a wider audience.”
The first Secrets of the Pros DVD title, Modern Recording and Mixing, was released in 2004 to universal acclaim. The subsequent Pro Tools DVDs Volume 1, 2 & 3 offer quick, affordable ways to learn to use Pro Tools like a pro. The most recent release, Master Drummer: featuring Dennis Chambers, takes viewers into a world-class studio with one of the most talented drummer / bass players alive. It’s a title that any musician should watch.
