It’s safe to say that sound saved Scott Eric Olivier. His sheer determination to make an audio impact revealed itself at the tender age of eight, when a rare hip disorder forced him to put his young mind to work while his body healed. The result was an early fascination with mathematics, music, and MIDI – a focus that proved to be a lifelong obsession.
Using PEDALpUNK!, musicians and engineers can integrate effects pedals into their DAW without any loss in audio quality, while creating balanced connections of unbalanced signals. The unit is made up of a combi jack input and choice of XLR or TRS jack output, while pedals plug into the return/send effects loop.Fast-forward a bunch of years, and not only is Olivier a busy engineer (Michael Jackson, Gwen Stefani, No Doubt, Van Halen, Christina Aguilera, Chris Cornell, Goo Goo Dolls), he’s also an active businessman. His just-debuted brainchild: PEDALpUNK!, a completely analog interface that seamlessly integrates effects pedals with DAWs – put simply, the mission of the unit is to connect software to any guitar effects stompbox that’s ever been made.
