Oral History Information
Dave Malekpour recorded his band that he formed in high school thanks to the help of his stepfather who assisted him in building a four-track recorder. Once he discovered an SSL in a local recording studio, Dave was hooked, he knew he wanted to build audio gear. And he did! At the age of 26, he formed his own company, Anything Audio, for which he installed sound systems in studios and clubs, which led to Pro Audio Designs, which was established in 1993. Since then, Dave and his team have been on the cutting edge of new technology and innovative products and installations. Studio design is a passion for Dave, who at the time of his NAMM interview had just finished work on the Siren Recording Studios in downtown New York. His fire and passion still drive him to create new and interesting gear.
